Gambino's Foreign Cars
My grandfather started going to Kevin years ago and then word spread through the family. I've been taking my car to him for about five years now. Kevin finds the least expensive warrantied parts, his price for labor is very reasonable, and he almost always fixes or cleans up something extra if he spots it. He is the most honest and trustworthy mechanic I have encountered and I stress this to EVERYONE!

R & S Auto Service Inc
R&S is wonderful! They are nice and most importantly HONEST.I took my car there because the Firestone on S. Carrollton said I needed a new engine mount ($250). Guess what? I do not need a new engine mount and there is nothing wrong with my car. Ray was very nice and clear when he explained how everything worked. I left feeling more knowledgeable and confident about my car.Thank you!

Jefferson Auto Service
I just LOVE this Place! We took advantage of a great deal going on right now, for their 67 Anniversary Celebration Sale. Seems like tons of Jefferson Auto 'Services' are only $67 each. So we took advantage of a front brake job for only $67 for everything, while I was their for some emergency work, ( which they took care of really quickly) thanks again, MAC~

Car Repair On Wheels-Preston
I called Preston's Car Repair on Wheels to change my flat tire to a spare tire. Mr. Preston was very professional and came quickly. He did an excellent job at a reasonable price. I am so glad I called him. I am definitely keeping his business card in my wallet and will use his services again.

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.
