This guy (Tim Hefner) is only getting one star because I can’t give zero. He is a shady character. DO NOT BUY anything from him. He sold me a car under the false pretense of being a private owner on Craigslist. Within a day of driving away with the car, the rear trailing arm was found snapped apart. I purchased it in August and was told the heat worked...it did not. The rear passenger window broke within a couple of weeks and very soon after I lost all brakes when the brake line broke and the car is now totaled. I’ve owned the car less than 3 months and barely drove it as I was on medical leave from my job. It was supposedly inspected in April ( just 3 months) before I bought it. Tim claims that he knew nothing about any of the issues. He said the car came from Car Sense and they are very reputable. Funny, on the day I bought it, he told me that the car came from a relative! So many lies.. very dishonest man!

I have no idea why anyone would rate these guys any less than even a 4!!! J.R., the owner is great to work with! They are honest, fair in pricing, reliable, friendly and a rare breed of trustworthy car mechanics. It only took me more than 10 years to finally find a good mechanic! :) I wish you well. Philippe

NTB National Tire & Battery
DO NOT EVER take your vehicle to NTB National Tire & Battery in Mcintyre Square Pgh, PA, they are scam artists. This place of business is seedy and they will lie to you by telling you, you need work done on your vehicle so they can pad the bill and get their big chunk of change ( commission by lying and misleading the public). This place should be shut down, they should be ashamed to conduct business in this manner. I am calling channel 11 news to have this place investigated. On July 24th in the morning hours, I took my truck to NTB to get an oil change. To my surprise, I was handed an estimate in the amount of $1,669.60 ( WOW... pretty expensive oil change, I was thinking!) An associate of NTB hands me this estimate, stating I need front suspension strut and the suspension strut and coil spring assembly in the amount of $907.15. I was also advised I needed the following 1. disc brake pad - front premium ceramic with their life time guarantee, front. 2. front disc brake rotor 3. front brakes installation in the amount of $533.96 NTB parts for this scam were $1, 254.60Labor for this scam were $281.50-$10.00 FUNNY discount / creditsubtotal $1,526.10Shop fee $35.00taxes $1669.90 I paid $84.99 for an oil change only. They tried to rip me off by providing me with an estimate of $1, 584.61. I was so disturbed by their estimate the next day I took my truck to a very reputable auto mechanic in Gibsonia, PA I was told I needed front brake pads and rotors, my bill was $271.29 including labor, parts, and sales tax. I never needed the front suspension strut and coil spring assembly. On a scale of 1-10. I would rate this place a negative. I am warning the public, if something does not seem right to you, don't get the work done on your vehicle, get a second opinion. Go by your gut instincts. Don't ever be afraid to question something that does not seem right. I say shut this establishment down!!!

I had 2 visits to this location and each time the service was prompt and professional. The service manager and mechanics are very knowledgeable and were able to correct an error made by a different service provider. I will definitely be returning for future maintenance !!

I decided to go here cause I went to a few other places that said guaranteed to get everyone financed and lied to me. I called these cats and told them my situation and they said they would be able to help me. My past is pretty bad due to a couple bad jobs so my credit is horrible. I just picked up my 2013 Ford Explorer yesterday and I'm loving it. Don't fall for the other dealers BS about guaranteed you will get a car. This is the only place that really took the time to help me..

JD Byrider
DO NOT GET A CAR FROM HERE!!!!! HORRIBLE! The whole experience with this company has been awful from the start. You got to do ridiculous paperwork to "qualify". Then we get the car at midnight after the first wanna be sales rep screwed the paperwork up. All you gotta do is figure out people's spending income with a bogus questionnaire and he was too worried about stuffing his face with pizza. Get approved take a look at the selection which was awful. Old cars WAY overpriced and over 100,000 miles. Pick one and out. Then non stop problems which started one week into having the piece of junk. Been in the shop twice in 4 months $900 in work this year alone not including going to an outside mechanic because what JD wanted was too much. They put in crap parts. The service rep today said quote unquote "This isn't a normal dealership. You want that, go to one. Read your contract. We don't have to put in good parts." NOT AFFORDABLE NOT RELIABLE NOT DEPENDABLE THEY DO NOT CARE! This last week alone my car stalled out in the tunnel with my child in the car. Today go walk down since they don't offer their "cared for customers" diddley squat after being told the car was ready to be LAUGHED AT while they said "What you doing here your car ain't ready" REALLY?!? THEY OVER PRICE CRAP OLD CARS HIGH MILAGE AND GET PEOPLE WHO CAN'T AFFORD A NEW CAR AND SCREW THEM! BEWARE!! LOOK INTO OTHER PLACES, THIS PLACE IS A JOKE!!!!

Baum Boulevard Automotive
When my daughter broke down, we took the advice of the AAA operator and had the car towed to Baum Boulevard Automotive. This shop is top notch. We're 3 hours away trying to get the car fixed and they went way above the service we expected. We received an honest evaluation, 10% student discount on labor and very prompt service. But most of all they promised to make the car safe for her to drive and included a safety check 7 days later. It is very refreshing to do business with honest people that have your best interests at heart.

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.
