Awful, confrontational crooks with terrible communication and nonexistent customer service. Avoid at all costs! They tried to fight me when I questioned why the bill was so much higher than they quoted and why they didn't return my phone calls when they said they would when they had my car all day for an oil change. Two months later and they are still harassing me. Stay far away!

I had my wife, who is good with people and knows a relatively good amount about cars, take in her car for a new clutch and act like she knows absolutely nothing about cars to sort of test them. She did so and was treated with respect, patience, and above all; honest. Not only was the girl working at the front of the shop knowledgable, she was also extremely helpful and took time to find a better priced clutch than what first came up, and called Napa to have it delivered within an hour. Her estimate of 5 hours turned into 4.5 hours and charged us for exactly that! How could they not be tempted to just round up? Because they want to be the first and last people you call for auto repair. I don't usually write reviews unless I'm trying to save otherw from BAD experiences, but this place is so far beyond typical garage service that I had to put the good word out there. I try to do most service myself, but in the future I may even use them for the little stuff just to save time and patronize an honest local shop that does great work. Recommended for any auto service without hesitation.
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.
