Saw the shop in the neighborhood for awhile. Came down here after my favorite mechanic shop informed me the technician that I preferred was no longer working. Outside I saw a bunch of European cars so I knew I was somewhere that could service my Audi. They were able to take me same day and even beat the price of southern Volkswagen. I walked in and was greeted by the owner who was very welcoming and knowledgeable and seemed like he was about his business! Only came to get a xenon headlight changed but hopefully I found my home for future services !

Whatever you do Do not take a German car here.. there is a man named Harold that rents from this place that fixes car too.. I took my 2007 BMW there for just a starter and for him to change a headlight bulb.. I asked Harold several times does he know what he is doing on a BMW.. he said yes several times.. when I went to pick my car up my headlight was hanging out but he swore he did not touch my headlight then said well you need a whole new assembly anyway.. also my steering wheel was taken apart because for one it was very noticeable and two every time I put my key in it would pop right back out.. also when I went to start my car it would start but would cut off several times.. I tried to start it in front of him several times while it was shutting off and he said "well I know how to get it started" he put his foot on gas and kept revving it up trying to keep it started and then he said "there you go it's started". On my way home around 4 pm rush hour traffic my car cut off 6 times.. had to keep starting it back up but had to keep pumping gas to keep it started.. I was nearly hit by oncoming traffic.. took it straight to someone else who had previously looked at it a day before I took it to Harold and he could verify that a "gasket" was ripped while he was trying to get to starter.. also he says that some screws were lost and replaced with some that do not fit.. also he said that the headlight was obviously taken out and was not screwed back in properly.. my car is still there. He is trying to fix what Harold messed up and this is really depressing.. I called the shop owner Howard and all he could say was Harold did not mess up my car.. I told Harold I would have to sue and he said " sue me then" keep in mind I have to fix new repairs that he messed up.. in my opinion I would not take any type of car here.. these people are liars

Worst towing company you would ever want to deal with. Extortionist. Charge a fee to retrieve personal items. Told one price then when told them we would bring police they changed price again. Bad experience all around. Crooks.

Sue Otis Kazma Neser — 5 starOutstanding Customer Service. Friendly knowledgeable staff. Financing offered for repairs All of this makes this business stand out. Buying a used car can be a challenge in todays economy, but this dealer makes the process smooth and easy. To also have a repair shop with financing helps my budget go further. I give this company 5 stars

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.
