Fraser's Auto Repair
Frasers was recommended to me for inspection. While they seem honest & knowledgeable, they are FAR FROM ACCOMODATING. First off, they're gonna make you make at least 2 trips maybe more. They always say no appts for inspections... to show up 8A and be first. I showed up at 8:02A & a 3 hr wait already ughhh what??? yet I saw no ppl? So I figure they musta dropped off - but wait, I didnt think u cud do that for inspection & evn if u can & sum1 comes that wants to wait - To me, they cud cut them in get them done & send them on down the road. Aftr all, these other ppl r workin & not gona p/u their cars til end of day. Im not sayn I wont go back as they are honest & & dont pick your car apart & anyone can put up with annoyance no more often than that & I will say their wait area is in no way clean. Tryna find a an honest inspection/mechanic is like tryna find a needle in a haystack & these guys are that, just always put u off, seem grumpy & not very accommodating.

Gosine's Auto Repairs Inc.
I recommend Gosine's Auto Repair! I like the idea of patronizing our community's smaller businesses. Gosines is a family run operation. The front end of the business is managed by Mrs. Bultler. She is knowledgeable and evidently understands her cutomer's needs. Sometimes mechanics make mistakes. Yes, sometimes things break! In servicing my car the heat shield for the air cleaner box was broken. Gosines repaired the damage and most importantly assumed the cost. However I was twiced wowed when I was told heat shield was already broken when I brought it in. Wowed again after having the shield replaced, looking under the hood and finding a small screw driver on the battery and being told the screw driver was not theirs! Wow! All's well that ends well! Nontheless Gosines Auto is a good place to have your car serviced.

outstanding when he can help, but was turned down twice to get my truck inspected. my truck broke down on a busy intersection on my way there to find out that it wouldn't get inspected today, it would have to wait till saturday. i told him yesterday my check engine light was on, no big deal . i have never had a problem in the past, just don't know what's going on. i came home after someone else helped me and it's getting inspected by someone else too. mr thornton said he found the parks for my emergency breaks when you said you couldn't . he isn't inspecting the truck, but i think i will start going there instead

First time with A & E They were recommended to me for inspection. Owner was VERY accommodating - which is always a good sign - and as I was leaving, someone else was arriving that had been referred. You know, you feel like ur always rolling the dice with a new or unfamiliar auto shop for fear of dishonesty... but NOT here :) Quick n & out, very accommodating and I so appreciated it. Didn't pick my car apart for unnecessary fixes either :) Finding an honest mechanic is like tryna find a needle in a haystack & I was impressed with this place. so I will definitely return.

Man, I wish I had known about this little pop and pop auto shop right in my own 757! They are awesome! Nothing fancy, just the old school shop, and a small area to pay/wait but you know the inspection didn't come to over 100 like i'd thought it would. My break pad's were just fine. Turned out to be just 40 bucks at the end of the day. These guys are great, locally owned, run and have outstanding service. I will be going next year to have my inspection done again at Sprinkle and Williams. They rock.

Free Miles Transmission Auto Care
We LOVED it here. After a few experiences with some bad garages, Free Miles Transmission & Auto Care was a beautiful breath of fresh air. Everyone is honest, friendly and respectful. The mechanics are knowledgeable and professional. The price was shockingly affordable; they worked with us to keep it low, and kept us up-to-date on the repairs. So glad I found a great mechanic. I'll return to them with all my needs!

Karen E. I find the work done on my car, that was extensive was repaired properly and I never had to return for any repairs. Ed is fair and straight forward. If there is nothing wrong he will tell you. I won't go to anyone else for my repairs. They are very trustworthy. The receptionist was all about business and I like that. Will send anyone needing help to A & E Automotive Repairs, Newport News, VA.

Auto Tech Repair
I had my car towed in to Auto Tech. I had major electrical problems, i.e., gear shift panel locked up, door locks didn't work, inside lights and rear lights not working and radio not working! They fixed this problem in record time and for an unbelievable price of well under $200! The staff are definitely very friendly and knowledgeable! I highly recommend them.

Moore's Auto Repair
I've been taking my vehicles to them for over 15yrs. My father has too and recommend them. They are always close to their estimated repair cost and finish repairs quickly. Their level of entegrity and professionalism sets them far apart from competitors. I will drive out of my way if have to, just to have the peace of mind that comes with taking my vehicle to them.

Auto Tech Repair
They charge $115.75 an hour. Most mechanics charge around $50 an hour. I was not told about this ridiculous price until I was presented with a very expensive bill once the work was done. I did give two stars however because they were very friendly and appear to have done good work but it's not worth paying over double the normal rate.
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.
