Terrible experience!!!! They informed me my transmission was completely gone and would cost 2100 to replace. WRONG! It was a simple 30 dollar fix!! They actually caused the problem the last time they worked on my car. So much for honest. I will NEVER return and I will spread this story to everyone I know!

Arya Auto Service
I've been taking my cars to this shop for years. Whether to have repairs, oil changes or inspections. Mr. Arya is so pleasant to speak to and can be quite humorous at times. I've thoroughly enjoyed my business contact with him each time I go. He's fair, knowledgeable and very personable. I highly recommend him for any type of car service that is within his expertise.

I spent $630 on new American made tires in October of 2013.In January of 2015 I developed a whining sound and took the car back to Goodyear to have the tires checked for noise.They called and said they could pro-rate the tires out for around $300.I authorized the transaction.They called the next morning and said the alignment was just off and to keep from having the problem again I should have the alignment done.I agreed.The total bill was $380.When they called to say the car was done, they informed me that a wheel bearing was making noise.Why was I not informed of this before the tires were replaced?It turns out that the tires were fine and the wheel bearing was the only problem.If this sounds like good business practice to you, I would do business with this Goodyear store.If not, I wouldn't.UPDATEI contacted Goodyear corporate on the same day that I posted this review.A couple of hours later I was contacted by the owner/manager of this Goodyear outlet.He never admitted his complicity but on 3/2/15 I received a check from Goodyear for the full amount spent at the outlet.I am very satisfied with the results I got from Goodyear corporate and would strongly suggest using them for any problems at local outlets.

I just started going here. These guys are the most honest, and all around good guys I know that works in the automotive industry. Very hard to find and I have recommended them to my friends near and far. No b.s they tell you everything before they lay a finger on the proccess. I've witnessed one of the guys even say to another customer what needed to be fixed immediately and what could wait but should get fixed later. They never slack of. Always working hard with or without food.
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.
