A Plus Auto Repair
I have lived in Starkville for more than a decade and consistently had courteous and professional responses with most mechanics shops. However, my recent experience with A+ Auto Repair & Towing Services has been mediocre to say the least. Please be warned; this shop lacks professionalism and “southern hospitality.” In summary, I left the shop feeling disrespected and cheated. Details of my experience are given as a photo in the photo gallery (due to the word limit):

Very honest reliable mechanics. They offer suggestions on repair and do not cheat you. They fixed our a/c for the truck in record time. They told us 3 ways to repair it depending on our budget. This was appreciated and the charge was exactly as told to us.

Paddock Auto LLC
I had to get some work done on my kids car. I'm not even in the same area so I had to rely on some instincts and just talking to the guy. Randy was sounded very knowlegeable over the phone, not intimidating. I described the problem, he told me what day to bring it to the shop. He was upfront on what he believed the issue to be without seeing everything. Turns out he did have to do a good bit of work which I already knew. It was a very Fair price and he kept me updated. My daughter says when she picked it up they were very nice and no intimidating car talk. I would highly recommend because of my experience. Beats the heck out of the "Dealership" robbery.

Given great service. They called with estimate and was able to do the repair for less than estimate given. Very professional staff. Will do business again.

City Alignment Service
We have used City Alignment since about 1980. It is the ONLY place in Starkville where we would ever think about taking our vehicles. Never, ever, have I felt that the owner and his son were anything but totally honest and up front with their diagnoses of my vehicles' needs and their prices are very competitive. My little car now has 200,000 miles on it and I give the credit for its longevity to their great service. Thanks, Guys !

A Plus Auto Repair
No matter what you need done to your car, take it to A + Auto. For something as little as air in your tires, which is normally free, to oil change, to brakes, rotors, AC, to as big a job as replacing a motor--THEY DO IT ALL!! and at the most reasonable prices. Call around, if you find a cheaper charge, let the owner know and he will match it if not go lower. The owner even gives discounts to some of the MSU students if they mention it to him...he calls parents out of state to get the payments so the kids don't have to worry about it. He takes care of any and everything that can be done to a car. Don't forget--he also has a towing service, Big CANARY yellow BEAUTIFUL wrecker! Like I said, THEY DO IT ALL. If it can be done to a car--They can do it for you. Call them 324-1600!!
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.
