Came in with a gashed but drivable tire. Seth and his staff were able to fix it after Lauterbach told me that I have to replace the tire. The vehicle being an AWD would need a set to be replaced. In the meantime,Hiller was able to fix my tire and saved me a lot of money. Will be back if I need tire service again. Thanks, Hiller!

Pauls Garage
Paul's staff went over and beyond for our family. We were traveling through the area when we experienced car trouble. They were the only garage open and were willing to help after hours. They were knowledgeable and had reasonable prices. Thanks again for your kindness guys.

Paul and his staff have always been very professional. They are very reasonable with their prices. And they have dropped everything to help me when I was in a bind. If you want a mechanic who will give you the honest truth, without trying to up-sell.... It's Paul.

Not really trustworthy, they don't even bother to return your call. And they tell you not to worry that if they can't do the work they will be able too suggest someone who will but you have to just move on and find someone who will do what they say they will do.

So glad they were still here when my daughter drove in to visit over Thanksgiving. They took care of her broken brake pads and shoes and had her on the road back to school by Saturday. Great service on a holiday week!

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.
