My daughter's car would not start while camping at Meramec State Park. Since she had no cell service I had the car towed to C and R Automotive. After being towed the car started. The man at C and R thought it might be the fuel pump, but would not put one on (because of the expense) since the car would now start. He put it on the computer and found nothing wrong. He even delivered the car to her at the park the next day, gave her his phone numbers and told her to call him if she had any other issues with her car while in town. He was extremely nice on the phone and very honest. I would use them again if I lived in the area.

I think these negative reviews must be trolls from the competition, because Meramec Tire has done all of my families auto repair since I moved to Sullivan about 8 years ago and they are consistently fast, cheap, and good. In my experience with most repair shops you're real lucky to get 2 out of 3.The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars is because they almost never call when the work is done, I have to remember to call them to check on it. That drives me nuts, but I guess not too bad because I would never think of taking our vehicles anywhere else.

I can't say enough good about this shop. Jack and his whole team displayed the best customer service and know how from any other shop I've dealt with. Very honest and trustworthy. Won't take my vehicle anywhere else.

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.
