I have worked on my vehicles all of my life so i do know a thing or two about vehicles. This guy has been the most knowledgeable man i have ever met. I had to replace my engine which contrary to popular belief is no easy task. He was very up front and honest about everything, no hidden fees or lies. Excellent customer service. I could not be happier with the result of my new engine. A very friendly experience that I would do all over again. If you really want excellent work done right, then trust American Automotive to get the job done and avoid all the over hyped big shops. A very happy man from Texas!

A small and grimey shop, as I expected. The guys working their were fast and friendly, the work was very fairly priced, and they back it up with a warrantee. I would definitely recommend them to a friend and will be returning if I need a used tire or a routine job like a CV boot.

Got to know Jerry not too long after the Branson tornado blew his garage away. Not to be outdone though, he made 'driveway calls', and I was one of those calls. The professional troubleshooting he did on that d.w. call, and the fix for our car, led me to follow him for his services, when he opened up shop in Ozark. He has done complete A/C system overhauls, replacement of a starter ring gear...a major job by the way, and a complete engine exchange. Actually the engine exchange was much, much more...involving 'resurrecting' our pickup truck after sitting outside for 3+ years. It was a huge job! Each time he has worked on our vehicles, Jerry has tackled each job with the same careful, considerate effort, as though he were working on his personal car. Amazing! I've never met anyone quite like him in the automotive field or anywhere else for that matter. Thanks Bro!!!

Well, I have to smile at the bad review below. I know that some people do get rubbed wrong some times and, lets face it, no car repairs ever seem as inexpensive as we want them to be. that being said, the owner, John is definitely proud of his old car. I would be too. beyond that, their pricing is as fair as any and better than a lot. John was jovial and friendly. I couldn't ever classify him as rude. Him and one of his technicians brainstormed to figure out what could be the root cause of my problem and got me back on the road as soon as they could. Good folks. Thanks JK's!
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.
