They replaced my starter and took off my coolant reservoir and forgot to put it back on. 4 months went by and it started to over heat. Took it to the nearest shop before the car stopped on me. Found out the coolant reservoir was missing. I called knuckle busters to see if they had it and sure enough they did and now they do not want to reimburse me for getting it fixed at the other shop.

1st car I took in turn out good. I later took in a bmw and was told I had broken motor mount bolts. They order the bolt and said it was fed ex. Seven business day later I called and was told the bolts got deliver to the wrong address . Needless to say communication was poor on their side. I had to rent a car so I could get around. I just wish they could of follow up with me over the misshap instead of me doing all the follow up...I will wait and see when I get my car back... May not go back due to the lack of communication.

I've been going to Knucklebusters since they opened and they are the ONLY shop in town to successfully diagnose and fix my 2001 VW Jetta. A few of the other shops in town had tried to fix the issues but were unsuccessful even though they tout themselves as Euro specialty shops. I take all three of my vehicles to Knucklebusters and I am always pleased with the quality of work and exceptional service. Prices are reasonable and turn around time has always been reasonable for me as well.
Tips & Advices
While identical in concept, the main difference between 4x4 and all-wheel drive (AWD) is that AWD is a permanent setting, whereas a vehicle with typical 4x4 can shift between two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive.  In both scenarios you are using both axles to turn the wheels, but in an AWD vehicle that is constant and in a typical 4x4 you can opt between 2WD and 4WD for power.
When off-roading, the suspension is put under the most stress. The shocks, springs, control arms, etc., are all absorbing the impact, and, in extreme driving, it can put great stress on these parts. Tires can also be put under stress when on unusual, sharp, or extreme surfaces. It can cause wear and even failure.
The cost of replacing 4x4 tires varies widely. If you drive a standard 4x4 you can find replacement tires for as low as around $75 dollars. That is for a predominantly street-driven vehicle. If you want larger or more heavy-duty or off-road based tires, they can reach upwards of $500 or more, in extreme custom-vehicle situations. If you research thoroughly, you’ll find quality and affordable tires that will fit your budget. As always, there are many variables like size, brand, and speed rating, etc. to consider when buying tires.
The most common 4x4 repairs on modern vehicles are tire replacement, brake replacement, tire pressure monitoring system replacement, and suspension parts replacement. These are in addition to services like oil changes, tune-up,s and battery replacement, which are standard in all vehicles.
A skid plate is a heavy-duty plate that is mounted to the underside of a vehicle to prevent contact with the ground during extreme driving.  It is affixed near the underside of the engine to prevent oil pan damage, and other issues that can occur when the vehicle makes inadvertent contact with the ground during extreme driving. Skid plates are common on off-road vehicles and also in custom low-rider vehicles that are at high risk of scraping the ground.
