AAA Ace Mobile Auto Repair
Being snowbirds who come to Myrtle Beach to evade the cold Wisconsin winters, we are not aware of auto service providers in the Myrtle Beach area. I had to find out on a weekend. Last Saturday afternoon an engine warning light came on our auto. Being over a month and over 1200 miles from our hometown, I decided I needed someone to look at it here. I tried the dealership service departments as was told I had to call back Monday morning around 8:00 am. I also tried an independent auto service and only received a voice mail. I resigned myself to having to wait until Monday to get my car looked at. Out of the blue Saturday evening I received a call back from the independent auto service, AAA Ace Mobile Auto Repair. I had never even left a message but the owner, Charlie, called back because he had caller ID. I explained my problem and Charlie said he would be happy to look at the auto Sunday morning. When Charlie showed up and ran diagnostics it was determined that the problem could be caused by a bad gas cap. Charlie said he would be happy to go to O'Reilly Auto and get the part, put it on and make sure it was working. He did just that. Charlie charged me $100.00 total, I was amazed and so happy and definitely recommend his service.

C & G Auto & Truck
I can't put in words the gratitude I have for Barry and C&G Auto. I have an Audi TT that I absolutely adore. In the past I have only had the car serviced at the Audi Dealership in Columbia. On Father's Day my car died and would not start. Unfortunately I didn't have Barry's cell phone number and my car had to be towed off the location. My car was brought to a dishonest mechanic who basically butchered my car and put over $1,100 worth of repairs that were unnecessary. I spent $300 in rental car fees over the week the other shop had my car. Fed up with that mechanic I decided to move my car to C&G Auto. When we arrived at C & G Auto Barry and the other staff members were so friendly. They had a loaner car ready so we didn't have to spend more money on a rental car. They have been so honest about everything from start to finish. I feel so relieved that we have finally found an honest shop that we can trust. I will make sure to tell everyone I come across how happy I am with my experience. Thank you C & G for ending my nightmare and doing honest ethical business.

Auto Village Center
Got in and out right away lovely local family owned business. Some of the LOWEST labor costs in the area with techs who actually know what they are doing. I work at a large dealership in the area and still choose to bring my vehicle here very trusted have NEVER had an issue with Greg the owner or any employee there. Willing to even pick up and drop my vehicle off to me while I'm at work. Even comes in on weekends and works late if I need my vehicle quickly. Has ALWAYS called to get the work performed approved before going anything further then checking the vehicle out. Have purchased three vehicles from them never have had an issue with any of them and have sold them to other people whom love them. Repeat customer always happy to support local small businesses!

Auto Village Center
Broke down at a gas station while visiting from out of town. Stressed to the max calling dozens of shops who wanted to charge an arm and a leg since it was Sunday and refused to work on it until Monday. Finally found auto village center and he was very friendly and was happy to get us towed to his shop and back on the road in a few hours! He was super friendly and professional. Even cared enough to make sure our dog was happy during the wait. He went well above and beyond our expectation with his generosity and GREAT PRICE! Made our horrible situation completely bearable. Thanks Greg.

Hall's Auto Repair
I cannot thank the owner of this shop enough. We drove to Myrtle Beach from Illinois for vacation on 7/26/14. Our van broke down a little down the road from Hall's, and was towed there while they were already closed for the weekend. By chance, the owner stopped by the shop, and took the time to discuss our problem, and to ease our minds in a very stressful situation. The van was repaired on the following Monday, and allowed us to enjoy the rest of our vacation. Very honest about everything. Would not hesitate to use this shop again.

Hall's Auto Repair
My family was on vacation and our AC wasn't working. Steve and his crew promptly looked at my car and showed me the problem. (AC condensor) He ordered the part and installed it the next day knowing that we were going home that night. They fixed it in record time and I was good to go on my 10 hour drive home. Thanks Steve & the Hall's Auto repair team.

Eurotech On Broadway
We had a power steering problem the night before our departure, vacationing in Mrytle Beach. EuroTech called 5 places for the part, ordered and installed it the next day, allowing us to catch our plane on time. This was a Ford car. Thank You!

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.
