Hahn Automotive
I took my 2003 VW New Beetle in to have the shocks, brakes and tires checked, afraid that they'd suggest all three needed to be replaced. After he'd done a thorough inspection, Billy, the owner, said if I'd come into the bay with him he'd explain his findings to me. He took his time pointing out the front and back shocks and front and back tires and patiently asked questions like how many miles I drove a year and how often I'd had the tires rotated, and offered suggestions on how to gently use the brakes and down-shift on long, steep grades like Fountaingrove Parkway. His opinion was that nothing needed to be repaired or replaced for at least another year! What a relief! I wasn't charged for the inspection and, as if that wasn't enough, when I walked back into the waiting room I saw him bending over my car adding windshield washer fluid! Billy and Hahn Automotive rock!

Hahn Automotive
Hahn automotive is the best. I've brought my car to them more than once, and each time they get me in and back on the road within a day. Their prices are beyond reasonable and their attention to detail is unmatched. I've told locals that my car is at Hahn Automotive for repair, and they've all said - "That shop has been the best in town for the past 30+ years!" Billy the owner is super knowledgeable and has practically diagnosed my problems over the phone. I won't take my car anywhere else. I want to thank Hahn Automotive for taking care on me and my car, these guys are phenomenal.

I went to Hahn Auto Electric to have a battery short problem solved..spoke to Mike at the service counter and he asked Billy if he could check out my service truck. Billy went to work with electrical troubleshooting skill and in less then 30 minutes he had problem figured out. Didn't even care that it was closing time for his business. When asked about fee for services....reply was No charge...glad he could help. Thanks Billy for all your time and help late on a Friday:)Mel

Hensley's Auto Smog And Repair
I was told about the place from a friend. Came in for a smog check and oil change. They do lots of repair work there. I can tell it's a busy shop. What I like about the place is that I felt I wasn't being pushed out of the way. Erik and Ozzy where explaining how the smog check was done to me, which was cool.

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.
