TanzTech Auto Repair
As an engineer, I know what I am talking about. I have two Merc's at my vacation home on Holmes Beach an S500 and a SLK 350. Mike has maintained these for several years and I have no complaints about his competency,professionalism or his fairness. I was quoted around $7 K by Mercedes in Sarasota because of a leaking condensation tray on the SLK. They wanted to switch out the compressor, condenser and evaporator. Mike replaced the $6 piece of pipe for $86 including labor and R134a. I then had him do a top to bottom service, the fuel filter being the most expensive part as it is a fuel tank out job. Check the brakes, change oil, air, transmission, fuel, cabin a/c filters. Transmission fluid, brake fluid, plugs. With the fuel filter being a 3-4 hour job around $1 K including tax. I would recommend him to anyone. I undertake all my own maintenance at my home in the Caribbean, I even have a two post car lift, but not so in the US. Mike is straight and honest, and when he could have ripped me off he charged me $86 ??? When people resort to abusive language rather than an eloquent argument you can pretty much discount their dribble completely.

AAA Sarasota
The service I received from Cheryl Tichacek was excellent professional expedient and courteous. Mrs. Tichacek alerted me to inaccuracies on the report I'm consumer choice in regards to my driving record and accidents reported and items that were inaccurately credited to my report. She prevented me from being surcharge for things that did not have anything to do with me That were in fact accident and tickets on other peoples accounts And actually reported by consumer choice the auto Driving record watchdog service. there by and now able to dispute the inaccuracies with consumer choice and because of her I was not surcharge for things that did not have anything to do with me. for that I will be eternally grateful. my sincere appreciation and gratitude to Mrs. Tichacek She also increased my coverage from $10,000 uninsured motorist to 100,000/300,000 and my property damage from 50,000 to 100,000 while reducing my monthly premium by $20 per month more coverage for a lower cost many thanks I will recommend AAA to everyone I meet.

Gary's Auto Repair was amazing! I was having a very bad day, just lost my job, I had been at for over 5 years, and then my car decided to break down. I didn't know where to go; I’ve never taken my car to a mechanic other than to have my oil changed. I didn’t want to be taken advantage of , I was going to need to conserve my savings. I called a few places, they said it could be from $150-300 just to test and diagnose what was wrong. I called a friend, who recommended Gary’s. I called and spoke to Marie. She assured me that Gary would test and diagnose my car and give me an estimate for free. She also recommended a towing service to me. I finally got there and met Gary and his assistant Shane, they were such nice, caring people. After about 30 minutes Gary had figured out what was wrong and gave me a great estimate, very affordable. I'm happy to say I am back in the road again thanks to the wonderful people at Gary's auto repair!! I will recommend him to all my family & friends!

This guy is great! We thought we needed a new battery and he told us we didn't and checked our battery to prove it. We needed the terminal replaced. 2 yr old Nissan and it was all corroded. He ran around on a Saturday afternoon, found the part and replaced it. He had a heck of a time getting the old one off as it was so corroded but he was very patient and persistent and finally got it. Would def call him again if we ever have the need while visiting in Sarasota. Oh, and he's not 24 hrs, 9-6, but he did answer the phone late on a Friday night. Thanks so much Ashly!!!

at the recommendation of a friend, i have gone nowhere else but tim's auto for over a decade now. amongst all of the businesses i have frequented, they are hands down the most reliable, communicative, reasonable, and most importantly, honest folks i've had the pleasure of dealing with. i've had everything from oil changes and once-overs to new engines installed at this shop, and i have never once been disappointed. prices are fair and they will always tell you exactly what and what does not need to be done. i recommend tim's auto to everyone i know!

Me and my entire family have been going to Gary for many years to get our cars fixed. He is very nice and generous. He has always come through with his work and given me the best price and when my financials weren't the best he worked with me to still get the job done at a price I could afford because he knew I needed to get my car back on the road safe to get to work and get my kids around. He is an all around great guy and even better mechanic.

S & S Mercedes Service and Repair
The guys at S&S are awesome. I used to got to Sarasota Auto Werks but after Rex tried to rob me of $4000+ dollars on a repair that consisted of replacing my exhaust manifolds, turbo and cat converter.... I took it to S&S for a second opinion and it ended up being a $115 boost pressure hose. Have been going there ever since. Great service, on point diagnostics every time, clean shop and cheaper than anyone else in town.

Baker's Garage
Ever hear of an honest auto repair shop?! Me neither, at least until I went to Baker's in Oneco area. I found one! I had a car overheating, took couple of places for estimates. Both quickly told me I needed much engine work at cost of $1500 or more. Went to Baker's, they put on water pump and repaired fan motor. cost was $125!! WOW!! Much lower than $1500!!! Car was fine!!

Bassitt's Automotive Service Inc
The most honest mechanic I have ever met. Every time I have dropped my car off, I get this feeling that I and my car are going to get special treatment. Excellent diagnostics and honesty has become what I expect from Bassitt's. I was recommended Bassitt's from friends and now know 30-40 loyal Bassitt clients who all have great things to say about Bassitt's.
Tips & Advices
Yes, most roadside assistance coverage plans offer towing services. There might be certain restrictions, however. For example, the plan may only cover towing services for a certain number of miles. Drivers should check with their providers for details.
Which cars are covered depends on the roadside assistance provider. AAA services are available to members and not specific to any vehicle. As long as members pays their dues and have their membership card on hand, they can use AAA for someone else's car. Generally, auto insurance plans cover the car itself, not the driver, so people can't use their roadside assistance for another. However, details vary between providers, plans and local laws. Drivers should consult with their insurance providers to see whose cars are covered.
Roadside assistance coverage varies depending on the provider. However, they generally include:
  • Tire change
  • Battery jump start
  • Towing services
  • Locksmith service
  • Minimal mechanical labor
  • Delivery of oil, fuel, batteries or other parts
If a driver has a flat tire and no spare, roadside assistance services can deliver a new one. However, these services will not pay for the cost of the tire. That will be the driver's responsibility. Based on the location, some will tow a car to a tire dealer.
Most roadside assistance plans offer gas delivery and service. However, clients are generally responsible for the cost of the gas.
