After my Passat warranty has been expired, I wanted to find a reliable one. I had a Harley sound coming out of the front and I googled to come here after seeing lots of favorable online review. And those favorable online reviews proved to be true. They showed me what the problem was, and explained how they would fix it.I can strongly recommend McNeal Automotive!!!

I have been coming here for 2 years now. They are very knowledgeable about all cars (even my german volkswagen). Recently had a water pump and timing belt done on my old golf and happy with the turn around time. Prices are ok but i rather pay for better service than pay less for lesser service.

I first went to McNeal Automotive... back in I'd say 2013. I was recommended by a friend. Being a woman, I find it extremely hard to find good, honest, trustworthy shops to take my vehicle to. Most men like to take advantage of women, because a lot of women don't know squat about cars.When I first arrived, I was trying to explain to the service man at the desk what was going on with my truck. A certified technician told me to get in the truck and lets go for a ride. Never in my life have I taken my vehicle to the shop and ever once been offered this. We drove about 2 blocks down Columbia and I told him exactly when the noise started. He knew exactly what it was. He explained to me that you should never take your vehicle to a shop and explain what a noise sounds like. Ultimately, anyone would be playing a guessing game, and may fix parts on your car that really don't need to be fixed.Since then I have a new vehicle. This past summer my air conditioner went out, and I needed two front control arms. I had recently went to Belle Tire, they are who I always get my tires from. They initially told me that I needed the repairs, and gave me a price. I told them that I wasn't going to be able to pay for the repairs at the time, got the print out... and made my way to McNeals the next morning. I even made the staff 2 batches of cookiesThe price was extremely good. They even went as far as to fix all my tail lights that were out, because they were concerned for my safety. Needless to say three years later I have never taken my vehicles to any other repair shop. In fact, anyone who ever asks me to recommend a shop.... my answer is always McNeal's. McNeal's Automotive is trustworthy, reasonable, and they truly care about their customers. I am a repeating customer, not only because of the quality service, but the friendly faces of all the staff. Hands down this is your place for honorable, good quality work. Thank you McNeals and crew for all that you do

Pontiac Auto Repair
IF YOU WANT A VEHICLE, DO NOT take it here!!! I took my van in for JUST a diagnostic test. After driving it there( no running issues, drove perfectly fine), and not receiveing a phone call after the hour quote, I had to contact them to check on it after 6 hours! I was informed what the diagnosis was, and was told I could come to pick it up. Upon arrival, went in to pay them for their services, I went to start my vehicle, and smoke starts coming from my car and it felt like it was going to explode. I popped the hood and observed my engine looking like it was going to jump out of the car. After talking to the owner Jay (who was a complete jerk), he threatened to have it impounded if I did not move it. Well, I couldn't move it, because when i went to back it up, It cut off several times, and was smoking uncontrollably! So now I am without a vehicle until, and can't afford to get it fixed! They should be ashamed of themselves!!!

Oakland Auto Repair
My family and I have been getting work done at Oakland Auto for a few years now, and I tell you what; we ALL have been very satisfied from the 1st experience to each one thereafter. I would recommend this auto shop to anyone willing to travel within a 30 min radius. I definitely would travel a distance to here if need be. Great job R.J.

Clyde's Frame & Wheel Service Inc.
Very, very disappointed in information and services provided. Spoke with Dave 3 weeks ago in regards to a brand new machine needing a repair that was covered under warranty. During conversation he said he would have to call me back after he verified if it would be covered. He called me back 10 minutes later and said bring it here and we will get it fixed for you. So, my husband had to take a whole day off work in order to accommodate getting there on their hours opened, only to receive a call saying they would NOT cover it under warranty and now that it is apart it will cost us $410.00. We told them NOT to fix it, the machine has less than 200 miles on it and warranty should not even be questioned and then they decide in order for us to be able to pick it up we have to pay an hourly fee for them to put it back together so we can load it back on our trailer. Absolutely unacceptable! I will never refer anyone to them and will make sure this work practice is made public. Would give this ZERO stars but had to pick something to save this review. They do not deserve even one star in my opinion.
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.
