Dave Kring Chevrolet Cadillac
My car broke down and I had it towed to Dave Kring, and the tow truck driver failed to tell them he dropped it off (in the back of the lot!), so they didn't even know it was there or whose car it was when I called. But as soon as they found out it was mine, they apologized and had it fixed the same day. They sent a very nice gentleman to pick me up at work so that I could get to my vehicle when they were finished, and they even called the next day to make sure my car started! Very impressed:)

Festerling's Auto Service
I have never taken a car to this shop but hear me out. I called them about a quirky problem that I was having with the climate control system on an Astro van. They were familiar with the issue and told me how to fix it over the phone. It was a simple fix that I could do myself. Free advice is very rare today.

Friendly staff. Not a huge selection of cars, but they were able to help me get a minivan that could fit me and my kids.
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.
