I just had my Ford F150 towed and was very impressed. I have a challenging driveway and they handled it just fine. These guys rock!

I took my car in for a fuel pump problem. The battery was also in need of a charge. They told me the battery was so dead that it could not even be jump started. I have driving for over 50 years, so I knew this was total nonsense. They also quoted me a price to replace the fuel pump that was $200 more than D&L Automotive, so I jump started the car without a problem and rushed off to get it fixed by someone I knew would not rip me off. I had the battery tested and it was OK and just needed a recharge.

DON'T GO TO THIS SHOP!!!!! My 84 year old grandmother needed a tune-up...2 days later she got her car back with a $832.88 bill...I'd love to say they at least found some major problem to explain the cost but they didn't. This is an 84 year old woman who drives to the store and back twice a month in a 2002 Volkswagen with 46026 miles on it.

I just wanted t thank you for your diligence in doing your job so well when you rescued me last week. It is appreciated that you exercised so much care insuring my bike got home unscratched. I know it’s your job but not everyone excels as well as you do. Thank you again and I enhoyed our little conversation on the long ride home.

We were on a trip and had an engine problem with our truck. These guys not only got us in immediately, they gave us a loaner so we could feed the family. They did the work quickly and at a fair price. A local recommended them and I see why. Hard working honest folks, it doesn't get any better. Thanks Guys!
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.
