Dip Stix
Best Place ever!! I couldn't believe it when I seen that last review! I've been doing business with Dip Stix for several years and have been amazed with the honesty and quality of work that I have received. Not to mention the prices. My wife took her car to Firestone and was given a huge list of stuff that they said was detrimental to fix and amounted to over $1500. I had heard a lot of good things about Dip Stix so I took it there to get a second opinion and didn't tell them what firestone had told me. They found about $200 worth of stuff that needed fixed so I showed them firestones list and they took me out in the shop and went thru the list and showed me there was nothing wrong with 90% of the things Firestone tried to sell me. I myself also had them work on my truck and when a part was needed that they could get used and save me money they offered me that option which I chose and saved $400. There are a lot of crooked shops in every town but I can vouch for Dip Stix they have earned me and my families trust and business. I would highly recommend them over any shop in town!

Ace Automotive Empire
I went to ACE AUTOMOTIVE several times and my overall experience was beyond my expectations. I went with $5000 cash and did not know much about cars at that time. The salesman was very easy to talk to and was not pushy in any way! As a female it is hard to buy a car especially when you don't know much about cars but he was straight up and honest with me the entire time. They showed me a variety of cars in my price range that came with a 6 month warranty, I was overwhelmed with options! I test drove at least four of them until I made my final decision and they were patient with me the whole time! I would recommend Ace Automotive to anyone who is looking for a reliable vehicle. Ive had this vehicle for several months and I have had no issues with it expect the daily maintenance! I would go back for sure!

If you don't want to be pressured or talked into buying a car, this is the place to go. Leslie simply asked my name, asked if I had any questions, and welcomed me to look around and let her know if I wanted to test drive anything. Every car that they had advertised for sale had a current inspection sticker on it. I had been to several lots in town just selling cars as is and I didn't want to get into anything needing repairs. They even had a 90 day warranty included. I opted to upgrade my warranty to 180 days for an extra 60 bucks. There was quite the selection. It took me a while but I picked out a little toyota camry. If you're looking for a vehicle for cash for under 5 grand, check them out. Very happy with how easy it was to buy from them.

I bought a Ford edge from Anthony and Jared and it's amazing I did have an issue with it which I've googled and had it looked at it it had nothing to do with Ace empire it was a Ford motor company issue something that should have been recalled years ago. Anthony reached out to me when he heard I was having problems and told me not to worry about it and he would pay the bill and get it taken care and let me remind you this had nothing to do with ace, There have been hundreds of the same issue with the same year as mine. I would Most defiantly suggest this car lot for anybody looking for a affordable car with excellent customer service.

Ace automotive has been very helpful in finding the perfect vehicle for me. This is the second vehicle I have purchased from them and I am very satisfied with their service and patience with me! I wasn't bombarded bycar salesman and I was able to take as many of the vehicles out for a test drive as I wanted until I found the perfect vehicle for me. Leslie at the front desk was very helpful and informed me about the warranty and road side assistance. Both the vehicles I have bought from Ace have been reliable and I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy a car! They have great vehicles for great prices!

Kruse's Auto Center
The People at Kruse's are WONDERFUL! We were in St. Joe and my truck broke down. They picked us up, took as back to the shop so the truck could be towed. The let me know that a valve spring break, dropped a valve, but did not damage the piston or cylinder. . .got lucky. Anyway, they gave me several options, and took care of the repairs, kept in touch, quoted almost exact costs, and the truck is running wonderfully. I cannot say enough positive about Jeff and Craig, they were Great. I only wish they were closer, experiencing their customer service and the great job they did was refreshing. . .THANKS GUYS!!!!

Kruse's Auto Center
I was on my way back to Lincoln, Nebraska, after a weekend in Kansas City with my fiance. We were on the interstate when my car died. AAA towed us to Kruse's Auto Center. They were so helpful and made us a priority. They rebuilt my alternator, and the mechanic even stayed late to get the job done so that we didn't have to stay in a hotel or rent a car. One of the mechanics also drove us to go pick up lunch. I really appreciated their friendly service and not trying to rip us off. We were back on the road by the end of the business day. Thanks again!

Kruse's Auto Center
As we were driving into Iowa I realized that we did not have antifreeze in our radiator and needed a flush as I knew that temperatures would drop overnight and water expands not to mention the damage that it may cause. I pulled up shops in the area that can do the job and came across Kruse's. They are professional, know what they are talking about and now they will be my official mechanics. What a nice welcome to this here parts. Greatful, MSDSNY

I went to ACE AUTOMOTIVE and my overall experience was GREAT!! I went with $4000 cash and they had 15-20 cars in my price range. They all came with a 6 month warranty. The people there were super friendly and answered the questions i had to the best of their ability. The only thing I have had to do to the vehicle is change the fluids in the 8 months I have had it. I would recommend ACE AUTOMOTIVE to anyone looking for a great used vehicle.

Belt Alignment
I have bought three sets of tires from Belt Alignment. I have received excellent service each time. I had an issue with a competitor trying to take advantage of me being a woman and telling me I need my tires replaced after having them for slightly over a year. The guys at Belt Alignment were not happy with that and made sure the competitor knew about it. I have recommended them to friends who have also received excellent 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.
