All About Automotive Inc
I had some funny transmission issues with my car, and I was from out of town so I called AAA. They sent All About Auto to come tow my car. The All About Automotive truck arrived about an hour later than expected. 2 hour total wait time. I originally wanted the car towed to a dealership, but the tow truck driver suggested that I take my car to them since they have a full service garage, not to mention their prices would be much lower than the dealership. I agreed. They called a few days later and told me I needed a new transmission. They quoted $2,600. I said I'd just pick the car up and fix it when I had a chance. The next day the owner called me and told me I must have heard wrong. He quoted me $1,600. I held my ground and had them tow it to a buddy's place. I finally got a chance to check the car out myself. It was a bad transmission cable. The cable that runs from the shifter to the transmission. I bought one for $60 and installed it myself, in about an hour. The transmission is perfect. I ended up paying them $200 for diagnosis and the tow to take it out of there. TLDR: They wanted to replace my entire transmission for $1,600, even though the transmission was fine. The actual problem was a shifter cable that only cost me $60, and one hour of my time.
Tips & Advices
Among the common scams pulled are needless repairs, where a garage charges you for work that isn't necessary. Another popular one is attracting customers through a cheap oil change or tire pressure check. Then, when you your car is being repaired, they give you a long list of other corrections they'd like to make, therefore boosting the total cost of your bill. The best way to combat these types of problems is getting a written estimate before work is done so you can see how much repairs are expected to cost. If the final bill is higher than the estimate projected, ask to specifically see the work. Make sure information is put in writing as well. If a problem remains, you can have proof that work was not done to your satisfaction.
For winter driving, features such as the defroster, heater and exhaust system are paramount. Look in your owner's manual for specific directions on how features should be checked and repaired. Many newer cars have a cabin air filter that can be replaced when needed, allowing warm air to continue to flow in. Also, check tires before winter driving, as they need to be at the proper pressure to perform well on snow and ice.
In the spring and summer, you want to be sure your air conditioner and cooling systems work correctly. Given the high temperatures, overheating is a common problem. Look over the system by ensuring there is enough coolant available. If it needs to be refilled, it is best to open the hood and add more to the car before it gets too warm out. Also, clean out fan ducts and other ventilation sources necessary for summertime driving.
Some fixes to your car can be done without paying a specialist. Issues like replacing oil and air filters are relatively simple, with instructions provided in the owner's manual on how to make these changes. The same goes for replacing broken windshield wipers or burnt-out headlights. Such issues should be repaired quickly to guarantee safety, but don't require a visit to a garage.
Yes. Not every type of auto repair work needs to be done by a certified mechanic. You can fix some of a vehicle's issues just by paying attention to how the automobile is running and having a basic understanding of auto repair. Look over the ways weather may impact your car and what preventative measures you can take to avoid having to take it into the shop.
