I was having trouble finding a place that worked on foreign transmissions. I found 1 place in Bay City and they had my car for 4 days before they even got back to me saying it was going to be 900 dollars to take apart and reseal entire tranny. I wanted a 2nd opinion so started calling through the phone book listing and got to Dex Tech. I'm not even sure they normally do transmission work but he said they were willing to take a look. They had the car one day and we're able to replace one seal around the drive shaft for 150 and I haven't had a drop of fluid leak in over a year. I have since taken my vehicle back for other routine maintenance. I recently bought my teen daughter her 1st car and brought it to Dex Tech for the once over and make sure it was safe. They always tell me exactly what they are doing and they've even put the car on the lift to show me. I also live that they tell you what doesn't need to be done right away. Most places try to throw the book at yoy and Dex tech will try to save you as much as possible. I've been ripped off many times in the past over car repairs because I feel like an easy target as a single woman with no mechanical background but I have finally found a place I feel totally confident in and trust their work and business ethics. Great job !

Jessie's Auto Repair
This guy was very sweet to my family and i.we were traveling up north and it was raining like crazy and our serpentine belt came off. My boyfriend and i tried our hardest to get it on, but we didn't have the right tools, plus the rain made it impossible to get it on right. We towed our car over to Jessies and told him what had happen, he drove my boyfriend, my son (18mo old) and myself up to Tim Hortons to wait for him to fix it. Took him maybe 45 mins to fix it, then he vane and picked us up. We asked how much and he said 25$ we paid him and then he so kindly have me our money back and said "make sure you but that baby something nice" I couldn't believe it! Our car is running great now and i am incredibly appreciative of his kind heart. I know where I'll go if we ever have problems in that area again. :)

Grauf's Auto Services
I went into this business to get work my brakes looked at d on my car. I think I speak for most women when I say I have no idea what they will try to do to me with the car. They could tell me its engine is shot I have no clue!!! so, Tom the owner waited on me, friendly laid back a very calming presence. I have had bad experiences with mechanics before but he was a pleasure. He called me to say my brakes were basically ok except one of them needed a pad; the total came to 75 bucks. I am going to be a loyal customer from now on he was nice, fair and honest. To a woman thats everything.

Kreager Towing
These folks were timely, professional, and efficient. We shredded a tire on our tandem trailer (driving it up from Texas). We called Kreager and they said they would be there is a 1/2 hour, and they were!! From the time of shredding the tire, to the time back on the road, was less than one hour (we shredded the tire at mile #166 on I-75 -- a very busy road!! We were most impressed with this company!! Thank you for making our trip enjoyable!

All Auto & Truck Service
I have had them do my repair work for me since I moved to Saginaw. They are very honest and are dedicated to using American made parts, and local service. If all businesses did this there would be less unemployment. I have my Niece and Great Niece using them too.

I have been using this service since the mid 70's without a complaint. They are very fair and knowlegable. You are never sold what you don't need, and always get what you pay for. I will continue to take all of my vehicles to them for service.

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.
