website states they do lift kit installs and almost all of the reviews are 5 stars. called to make and appointment and the staff was friendly so i decided to take my truck there to get a lift installed and it went from the estimated day to day and a half to 3 days by the time they were finished, they did call and tell me it was taking longer than expected which is fine. once the truck was finished there was a slight click in the steering (not there before). After driving the truck home, i heard a sound coming from the hub of the wheels and when i got home and took the hub off, the axle nuts where just sitting in there bouncing around (not even threaded (granted, they might have been on loose and come off completely during the 10 min drive home)). After being worried about the steering issue and the axle nuts, i decided to look into the rest of the work they did, probably should not have done that...because i found that the ABS brackets were not installed, the CAM locking nuts were missing, god only knows what else they forgot to install as the rack and pinion spacer was in the same bag as the CAM lock washers and the ABS mounts, my guess is they forgot to install the entire bag of parts and that might be causing the steering issue. i am hoping they make it right and give me some sort of refund and fix the work they did/didn't do. i will edit the review if they make it right. very displeased at this point!

I have used Harford Tire as my go-to repair shop for a few years. I can say I'll continue to go out of my way to have my car serviced here as the few times I've gone somewhere else I have been ripped off or tried to rip me off. Most recently I needed a simple headlight bulb. It was quicker to take it across the street from my work & I'm thinking it's only a headlight. I drop it off at the other shop & when I pick it up my car is still wo a headlight. I'm told by the manager that it's been "rigged" & the bulb fittings are melted to a rigged wire & can't be removed. The mechanic comes in & confirms this & draws diagrams of what it's attached to. They wanted over $160 to rewire it properly. I said I'd just take it to the place that "rigged" it. When I take it to Harford Tire, I'm explaining what has happened to my melted bulb & the guy is smiling but kindly says it's ok. We got it. I want to see this melted metal that2 grown men are incapable of replacing. He pops the wire out, shows me a normal connector, & pops the bulb off in 1 second. He smiles & says Obviously they didn't try hard enough. My very complicated headlight was finished in 3min& cost $11.

The gentlemen at this establishment are kind, courteous & professional. I happened to stumble upon this place several months back on a return trip from PA to my home in Baltimore City. Needed a quick tire repair so I pulled over to the nearest station I could find. They fixed the tire at a reasonable price and had me in and out of there in no time. Didn't come out and try to sell me a list of 19 additional repairs that so often accompany a simple repair or oil change, etc. So I thought that was great, but it will probably be different next time. Well, stopped in again for a minor issue when returning from a holiday trip, and once again I encountered top notch, professional, knowledgable, kind, courteous employees. I observed how they interacted with the customers on the phone & in the waiting area and was nothing but impressed. The management obviously trains their men well. They run this place a notch above the rest in an old fashioned service oriented way. Therefore I'm spreading the word about this hidden gem. I only wish they were closer so I could use them for all my car care needs.

Want to give a BIG thank you to Matt and Mobile Auto Service for the amazing service and quick repair, I will definitely be calling them again for any of my vehicle issues.
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.
