Beach Boys Auto Repair
I visited this garage when I had no where else to turn for my vehicle. All other places wanted to charge a price I could not afford. Beach Boys Auto gave me amazing customer service, stayed within my budget to fix my vehicle, and had it completed in the same day. As a female, due to stereotypes, I am afraid to go to a mechanic or car dealership without a guy, however, this garage makes me feel confident that Iwill always receive the best price and best service. My vehicle is running great and I am very satisfied with their work.

Mad Hatter Muffler And Auto Center
I went to a Panama City new car dealer to have my malfuncting air conditioner checked. They said my problem was compressor failure and wanted about $1,850.00 for the repair. Charged me $95.00 for the check. I took it to Mad Hatter for a second opinion. In about an hour they called and said I had a bad relay. They located a new one and in about another hour and 1/2 they called again for me to pick up the completed repair. I saved $1700 and was very pleased with the service they provided.

Gears Transmissions & Auto Repair
Being a single women I'm always concerned with mechanics taking advantage of me. Growing up I had my Dad, boyfriends & eventually a husband that would guide me in the right direction as far as car problems. I have used AAMCO 2 times now & I have been wonderfully surprised at how nice they are & how helpful too. I totally trust them & I will definately be back for future needs. Thanks you AAMCO for all of your help.

I needed routine service on my 2013 Ford Escape and was lucky to find James Auto Center. The staff there took the time to explain what service I needed and after the service what I needed to plan for in the future to insure that I get the best from my vehicle, Bottom line, they treated me like family and I will continue to use them for my service.

Great place! So helpful, and kind! Being a woman, I get told the most ridiculous stuff by mechanics sometimes. They have been the complete opposite! Josh is friendly and more than willing to help, and explain everything. I will keep going back :)

We found James Auto Repair when we were looking for help getting our A/C fixed while vacationing in Panama City. They were so friendly, fast, and professional. Wish they had a shop in our hometown! Highly recommend!

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.
