Christian Brothers Automotive
I just had one of the best experiences ever with an auto shop! We have a Nissan Quest and it started making a terrible squealing noise when we started it. One of our neighbors told us it was the drive belt. I called our local Nissan dealership and got an estimate to replace the belt. I was told they were really busy and we would have to leave the van all day.... Then I remembered seeing Christian Brothers Automotive on Goodman Rd and decided to give them a call. Their quote was about $50 less and Tim asked me to bring it on down before they got really busy. Hubby and I hopped in the van and took it to Christian Bros... They pulled it right in and were finished in about 30 minutes and saved us money to boot. While in the waiting room I listened to other customers and everyone was more than pleased with the service. I'll be telling all my friends and neighbors about this great experience! Christian Bros. will be our 'go to' auto shop from now on... What a nice way to start our weekend!

I was passing through Southaven a week ago and had problems with my 74 Porsche 914. When I called, they said they would look at it and try to fix the problem, but no promises, very honest. They did a great job, were not satisfied till it was perfect. Tony the mechanic, who did not want to be a Porsche expert, came in at 5 am to make it perfect. I drove another 900 miles, purred like a kitten.For their work, honesty, attention to detail, I would highly recommend them.

What a great place to bring your older cars and trucks. They have kept my wife and I going for years! They can diagnose the problems, they know how to fix anything and their prices are reasonable. We feel so blessed to have found an HONEST car repair shop! CCB

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.
