My Guy Auto Repair
Over the years I have taken my vehicles to lots of shops and independent mechanics and have generally either had mixed or unsatisfying results. Then I found Greg, the owner and primary tech at My Guy Auto Repair on Craigs List and his pricing and service specials looked excellent. After checking out his reviews on Yelp and other sites, I decided to give him a shot with my newly purchased 2005 Toyota Highlander. I was really hoping he lived up to the great feedback on line but was skeptical since I have been burned so many times before.Well let me save you any further suspense. Greg is the real deal and the BEST auto tech I've ever found and I will be utilizing his services moving forward for both of my cars, despite the fact that I live about 40 miles away. Greg describes My Guy Auto Repair as "The Dealer Alternative" and he more than lives up to this billing. Please do not take this review lightly. As you can see from my profile, I don't ever take the time to review a business but I simply have to in this case. Great job Greg and My Guy Auto Repair, you get a well deserved 5 STARS *****Thanks Again!

Dnr Auto Service Center
I brought my 2007 jeep Cherokee in for service expecting to hear the worst and have to pay a lot of $$ to get it repaired. But to my surprise the repairs were not that major or costly. The owner/mechanic was friendly, professional and very reasonable. I would definitely recommend this auto service center for repairs.

R and S Auto Shop
I've been going to R&S Auto for the last 3 years and wouldn't dream of going anywhere else. They're extremely professional and really go above and beyond to help me every time. Pricing is very competitive but most importantly service is always excellent. I highly recommend them.

It is nice in today's day and age to find mechanics you can trust. They did a wonderful job fixing my car and at a good price. Highly recommended.
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.
