My wife and I had dinner twice at the restaurant while we were visiting Silver City and on both visits the food and service was excellent. The first night we had a five course meal and each course was better than the previous one. The food quality and taste was absolutely amazing and the staff is extremely accommodating. We enjoyed it so much that we are planning a special trip back to Silver City just to eat there again. It was a dining experience we will never forget and hope to enjoy again very soon. -Peralta, NM

Emile's Sports Car Performance
After three attempts by a prior mechanic to correct a major heat problem, Emile had it diagnosed and fixed quickly. Emile also corrected several other problems with the carbs, and the car now runs like it should. His prices are also great. I was also impressed with Emile's encyclopedic knowledge of the Maserati Merak and Bora, the Jaguar E-Type, Alfa Romeo, MG, and many other classic cars.Emile's will be taking care of my cars from now on!

Very courteous customer service here. Glad to have never been pressured in to work that was not absolutely needed at the time. That means I can decide when I can afford to do something instead of being told it has to be done now or else.

I do shop around for service on my car. It does vary on prices, depending what needs to be done. I have been to a lot of places during the years but one of the places I frequent most is Doc Auto.

My warranty was expired, so I had them check out my car to make sure everything was okay. Thankful I did because my right rear axle was completely a mess. Thanks for doing a great job!

The guys at this shop tell you what your car needs and nothing more. They work fast and do a great job. It's also a big plus to have your detailed care history online.

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.
