When I first moved to Tennessee from LA two years ago I BARELY made it. My car broke down the day after I arrived, and it was beyond repair. I ended up buying from a used dealer a month later. On my way back from the lot my battery died. I replaced it. A week later, my starter went out. I replaced it. After that, because of the service fees and the issues with the mechanics at one of the main brand places (I won’t say who) I prayed for a bit of help regarding these horrendous car issues.A week later I was given the number to a guy named “Peter”. I took a risk, as I didn’t know him.I’m so glad I did, because this ended up being one of the biggest blessings in my life! Peter has done some of the best and most quality work I have ever had—and I’ve had car troubles all my life. You know how when you talk about your day, and most people kind of just nod along until it’s their turn to speak? BUT, when you meet that awesome person who REALLY listens to your woes and worries, it’s simply amazing? Well, Peter is that mechanic. Every time I’d have car troubles he’d listen thoroughly, ask detailed questions, and do whatever it took to help me out. And his prices? UNBEATABLE. He has always been fair with every price, and has even shown me the costs, where he got them from, and always calls me BEFORE he does more than the initial cost agreed upon to make sure that works for me.There are few with such great communication, customer service, quality work, and a humble and enjoyable personality as Peter and the rest of his crew!I’ve been coming to him for over 2 years now, and plan on doing so for the rest of my life. I also recommended him to anyone who wants the BEST mechanical work at the BEST prices.P.S: Did I mention my mechanical problems became less and less the more Peter worked on it? It feels like he ACTUALLY fixed the car, which is something I can’t say for most shops I’ve been to.

He was very polite, helpful, and extremely reasonable. He ran a complete code check on my car and check every possible red flag that showed on the code reader. After locating the issue, he inspected it closely and went over my options for the repair. I couldn't be any more thankful for his help with getting my car back on the road.

Our car needed towing on a Saturday, and when I called the gentleman was he was so nice to take our vehicle and fix it quickly. What I appreciated is that he called before he fixed it to explain the problem and then took a picture and sent it to our phone. Honest man!

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.
