Renton Kia
After a disappointing first purchase, I was contacted by the GSM who offered to help remedy our situation. Dave Gandel went above and beyond to help us out and we ended up with our second purchase from them, a Certified Pre-Owned Kia.We appreciate Dave's constant communication by email and phone, and for researching as much as possible before we went to the dealership in person which saved us a lot of time. Our 2nd purchase ended up being quick and effortless.I would have given 5 stars except for the initial problems we had encountered when I had originally inquired about trading in the first car we had purchased from them.

Jeff's Auto Repair
I would like to thank the staff of Jeffs Auto repair shop (Erik and Ken) for their quick response to resolve my battery issue. Good management skills! They were apologetic and it showed they care about their work and respect to their customers. It was corrected immediately. I am very satisfied and I can say they earn my business again. Jeff's Auto Repair shop deserved a second chance. Thank you

Beetlesmith's Valley Auto Service
Did the work in a reasonable amount of time. Be aware they charge 110% mark up on parts which is ridiculous. Called them about it and they told me the price they get the part for was $70 each and charged $150 each and that it was normal for a shop to charge that much mark up. And yes i believe a lot of these 5 star reviews are fake. Not going here again

The sales staff particularly Andreas and sales manager Jan bent over backwards to make our car buying experience an easy and peaceful one. They exceeded our expectations. They showed us features benefits and comparisons we are most pleased with the purchase of our two Mazdas a 6 and a CX9.

Mike really displayed exceptional customer service as we shopped around at other dealerships. Mike was patient, yet very willing to compete and win our business. Mike has set a new standard for how car buying should be, and for sales professionals alike! Carrieanne and Brian Walker.

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.
