I made the mistake of buying a used car from a private seller and got burned, but one mistake I certainly won't make is taking my car anywhere other than Lydell Motors. These guys are as honest as they come, top notch work and more than reasonable pricing. They went over all of the issues they found with me (minor and major) and helped me determine what was of actual importance to fix now and where I could save some money on irrelevant issues or at least delay minor items to handle later. I think these guys actually understand the concept of "If you do what's right for the customer all of the time, you'll have a more valuable customer for a lifetime."

I have been dealing with this business for about 3 year's now and find them to be relieable and friendly. They have never done any thing to my car that i didn't give them permission. to do. My daughter has been useing them even longer and she recommended them to me. So if i had to tell any one what i thought about All Star Automotive it would be trust them. The service is quick and done right.

I have been there several times. They are both trustworthy and very knowledgeable. For one problem, they passed up my willingness to pay them and instead assisted me in getting something covered under warranty. I highly recommend them.
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.
