Complete Auto Service
After coming to the area 15 years ago, I needed my car repaired. Richard Sisney repaired and backed up the repair as one of his mechanics at the time did not do the quality of work he required. That mechanic is no longer there and since I have always have taken my cars to Sisney Auto Service for repair. When I needed another one of my cars repaired and I was out of work, Richard allowed me to take the car and pay him when I could. This demonstrated the amount of trust in me from him that I have never had from any car repair shop. It never ceases to amazing me how people try to hustle a good, decent, and honest business man. Richard trusted me and I could never show him the appreciation I have for him. Still, there are those who he has trusted and instead they choose to try to spin harmful vitriolic towards him. As the saying goes, there is always one bad one in the crowd that you will never please. Richard worked with me because I worked with him in a reasonable honest fashion. Perhaps others should do the same.

At Rudy's Transmission & Auto Repair
I brought my Yukon here, after having a bad experience at Jim's Transmissions in New Caney. Jim "supposedly" rebuilt my transmission. But after three separate visits there it still wasn't fixed! I got fed up and took it to Rudy's, where they were very sympathetic to my situation. He had the transmission dropped & opened up that very day. Turns out Jim had installed a "frankensteined" tranny with a torque converter & oil pump from a trail blazer, worn gears, and traces of silicone sealing the insides! I was shocked to say the least! So Rick ended up giving me a really good deal to fix the horror of a job that Jim had done. I ended up getting screwed out of $1500 from Jim's Transmissions, and learned a lesson.Thank you to Rick and all the guys at Rudy's Transmissions for fixing my truck and getting me back on the road!!

James' Garage
We had the best experience with James Garage. Our engine blew out on the side of the road and our insurance company (USAA) called James. We could not have been happier with the service. James was very professional and polite, gave us a courtesy call to let us know he was on the way with an estimated arrival time, arrived quickly and had our vehicle towed to our home. Smooth experience and great customer service. He also offers mechanical repairs. I would highly recommend James Garage.

Chris' Car Care
After dealing with a terrible situation at another mechanic shop, Chris' car care took the time to assess the situation, and went above and beyond to help me with the issues. This place is run by HONEST people, who not only care about their customers, but honestly take pride in the work they provide. I won't take my car anywhere else!!

Van's Auto Repair
Honest men with integrity. Will fix it right at a fair price. They won't fix anything that doesn't need it right then unless you want them to.
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.
