The most amazing shop I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Great Intelligent honest mechanic, MARK YOU ARE AMAZING!!! My Jeep broke down in Pascagoula MS while I was on a 3,600 mile road trip. My insurance company towed my Jeep to a mechanic who tried to rip me off, but between Advance Auto parts across the street from Bentwrench and Mark and his wife, they helped me get my car out of that previous shop and worked as fast as they could to get me and friend back on the road. Not only did they do an awesome job, mark really went through my Jeep with a fine toothed comb and refused to just through parts at it. MIND YOU 4 DIFFERENT MECHANICS COULD NOT FIGURE OUT WHAT WAS WRONG WITH MY JEEP!...BUT MARK DID IT!! If I had the funds I would drive 500 miles just to have Mark as my mechanic! I highly recommend this place, as does everyone else in town. I HAD 3 SEPARATE people tell me to take my car here in a matter of an hour. Great Man, amazing Wife...Fabulous Business!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH MARK!! YOU AND YOUR STAFF ARE PHENOMENAL!!!

I Have been using Bentwrench Automotive service for over 20 years and will always be a loyal customer. Mark and his workers always know my trucks and cars and never tell me to buy unnecessary additions for profit, He is earnest and a hard worker who enjoy his job. Thanks Mark and company for keeping me and my family on the road driving safely. Nathaniel B.

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.
