Metro Auto Service
the GOOD: Down to earth crew! Loved the expertise of information and tips the mechanics and management shared about my Cherokee. The affordable prices for great car repairs surprised the h*** outta me! Quotes and bills I collect'd/paid at other car shops\\private mechanics were seriously damaging my budget because of their quick fixes to return my jeep out of their hairs. Free coffee, clean bathrooms and movies in the wait rooms. I am glad to have found a reliable car repair spot that doesn't cut corners. Highly recommend this place for the noticeably great drive results.the BAD: Kinda want to drive my jeep into a tree to see the folks at metro again ha.

I would like to say that I had the greatest experience with Santos at Auto Focus. Santos was so patience with me since it was my first time buying a vehicle. He took the time out to explain everything to me. The vehicle I came to buy was sold but he helped me find something else on the lot that I fell in love with. I'm very happy with my car and I never had a problem with it to this day. I will always recommend people to buy from Auto Focus and I always tell them to ask for Santos. If it wasn't for Santos and his dedication I was leaving and going to another dealership. Thank you Santos for being a wonderful salesman.

Titos transmission center and general repair
Tito's Transmission is the best Auto Mechanic i've ever came across, and we can all say that there are plenty. Some give you bogus prices just for the money and some work hard in this profession because its what they LOVE. Its safe to say that Tito is the best at what he does. I was having major transmission issues with my 2003 Chrysler 300M & i did my research and land in Tito's garage. He fixed it within a couple hours and my baby was back on the road. Ive officially made Tito my personal mechanic. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this shop my fellow readers.!-Demetry Grizzle

I recently purchased a used vehicle from a gentleman called Santos at Auto Focus, I was very impressed by his honesty and car knowledge i was given a carfax without even requesting and explained in detail. Being a former car salesmen myself i know honesty is hard to find in the car business. I'm really happy with my purchase I recommend Auto Focus to anyone, buying a vehicle can be stressful experience. At Auto Focus it became fast and simple. Its a great place. Thank you Santos.

I had been looking for a Volvo wagon as I am a single Mom of a 3 yr old girl. I found one on Cars.com at this dealership and I called from work. Santos made me feel like this would be a simple and easy process. It was!! I drove my trade in, a 1998 Range Rover all the way from Philadelphia with my nephew and we were impressed with the care and excellent customer service received. I was approved after about 20 mins. and drove the Volvo wagon home to Philadelphia

This dealership was ran by a Portuguese gentleman that could work with anyone despite their circumstances. He's very nice and will work with your personal financial situation. But now we went by and it's under all new management and the people there aren't very nice or pleasant and seem to overprice the cars. But I know the Portuguese gentleman now runs another dealership next door.

I have been going to Broad St. Auto for many, many years and Ivan's mechanics have always done exceptional work on my vehicles. I have had high end vehicles and some not so great vehicles and whatever the issue was with the car, Ivan and his team properly diagnosed and fixed it. I would highly recommend Broad St Auto to anyone looking for quality workmanship and repair.

Came to the dealer looking for a car, i didnt have too much money, my credit is not so good, and i had been turned down at 4 other places. So my hopes were not very high, but i spoke with Santos and in 20 minutes i was approved. Within the hour i was driving my new car home!!! Very pleased with my overall experience. The car is great and my payments are affordable to me.

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.
