Jovanies Electro Mechanic
I was so worried about my car I went to different shops they told me I had to spend like 250 dollars on my alternator then I went to jovanies after I got stranded he helped me out; he went all the way to 170 freeway risking his life; this guy Orlando is such a great humanistic person; he really feels compassion for others. He only charged me 120 DOLLARS for the alternator. I highly recommend Jovanies. They're awesome; great service. THANK YOU GUYS FOR GIVING A HAND.

Tabasco Auto Repair And Tires
Excellent, honest, effecient, and fair is how i can sum up Tabasco Auto Repair shop's service. Ive brought in my 08 Honda CRV for some transmission work and my 2013 Toyota Tacoma for problems not even Toyota themselves could diagnose with my steering and alignmemt. Work was excellent, Best of all was the price, very cheap especially when they did transmission work for my honda. Highly recommended especially if mechanics cant troubleshoot your problems.

Jovanies Electro Mechanic
JOVANIES ELECTRO MECHANIC IS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!! My radiator went out on me on the 170 and I was able to make it to Jovanie's. He fixed it in a matter of a couple hours with a brand new one and didn't even charge me for the labor. Then My thermostat broke and he fixed it free of charge. When I wen tot get my car my bumper was tightened and my signal switcher was fixed!1 Absolutely 5 stars across the board!

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.
