I have done business with this honest, professional owner, Steve, for 30 years, since he managed the store at Antioch. I am a woman IT professional. Businesses like this are hard to find these days. Give them your business with confidence. In the most recent heat, my radiator developed a crack. I called Steve on speed dial, he said bring it in, and he gave me a loner. It runs perfect and they were able to fix it in a few hours. This is one of a hundred stories like this. Your emergency is their emergency and they care. I am grateful to include this Goodyear on my list of go-to home/car maintenance people.

Bud's 66 Service
Always does the job right and honest. They may stay busy, but they're servicing cars and trucks the way the should, charging people the prices they should be charged. This is a good business! Don't let one customer's bad review deter you. I have used Bud's for 10+ years and never overpaid. Jeremy and the boys do a great job well and do it for a low price. I would always recommend Bud's unless you enjoy overpaying for auto service!

Unusual place they only do it right when any work is done. And they stand totally behind what work they do. They don't have to advertise their customers spread the word for them.
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.
