Santa Fe Exclusive Honda & Acura Repair
I've taken my 98 Honda prelude to Ron and Jose on numerous occasions. I call my car Murphy because anything that can go wrong has! They put a newer engine when my old one blew, found that the previous owner wired things so wrong that it burnt majority of my wires so they rewired the car for me. As well as replacing my right axle, my harmonic balancer, engine harness, and put in a new alternator. They have been extremely wonderful and always kept me informed on the problems that occurred and wouldn't do anything unless they got the go ahead from me. I've spent thousands of dollars on my car and so far it's been doing great. Anytime a problem occurs I call them first and ask them and they are more than helpful. I've trusted them with my car many times and will be going back for a quote on suspension :)

Fantastic service and a very professional staff. Fred and his crew are first rate. you can shop around in Santa Fe and will find more expensive and less quality work, but B&G is by far the best.Do yourself a favor and have B&G take care of your car. I promise you will not regret it.

Fernando the Manager and Nick the mechanic were outstanding. I was on the way to Santa Fe for the weekend with my family and had car problems. They were extremely helpful and professional and fixed my car in less than an hour. They really saved the day. I would recommend them to anyone.

These guys did an amazing job servicing my GMC SUV today on time and on budget. I found them to be knowledgeable, honest and professional. My car is purring like a kitten and I am so grateful to have found B & G. They are also a AAA approved shop and that makes them extra special.

WOW! Chris did a wonderful job on my 2112 lexus. I was referred there by Lexus of Santa Fe who said he was reasonable and good. All are true. Thank you Lexus for the excellent referral and thank you Chris at Color Express for making my car new again!

I have been through many mechanics in Santa Fe, all of whom tried to nickel and dime me just because I was a female. Finally, I have found a mechanic that is honest and trustworthy.

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.
