Dorgler Auto Repairs Inc
Fred Dorgler is a rare breed - an honest mechanic, who you can leave the car with in the morning and he'll have it fixed in the afternoon without gouging you. I highly recommend taking your car to him if you need any repairs. I had metallic noises coming out of my rear tire so I took it to Dorgler and left the car in the morning. He called me in the afternoon and said that rusted piece of metal got into the drum brakes, causing the noise, which he removed. He said that both rear drum brakes were good and the charge was $30!! Some garages charge you $60 just for opening up the hood, and then find things wrong, especially if you're not present. Highly recommended.

Repair shop did not have the machine to clear the brake light at the end of repairs. They did not inform me prior to service. I had to go to a second shop and pay an additional $50 to have the fault light cleared so that the brake sensors would work.

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.
