These guys knocked my socks off! I've grown used to gruff and unfriendly service at Auto shops and I expected the same when showing up here. The person at the front (Mark or Mike) was attentive, personable and rolled the red carpet out for me. The mechanic went a step further and gave me a heads up on some ways that I save on maintenance. I was treated like royalty and spent less than $100, this is definitely where I'll go for anything car related. Any place can fix your car, but everyplace won't treat you like they appreciate you!

Recently the time had finally come to get my brakes replaced. A coworker of mine said he always had a great experience at Hollenshades. I scheduled an appointment for the following day. I came in to have my brakes done at my scheduled time. Within 10 minutes my car was being serviced. The prices are very fair and the customer service I received was outstanding!

Went in for an oil change and Sam, the mechanic was friendly and responsive. The cost was reasonable and the service was very quick (I was leaving for vacation and needed same day service). The new owner, Steve, is passionate about cars and is very customer-focused. I will definitely revisit them for future service.

I've had my car serviced at Hollenshades since I moved here last year. Great customer service and pricing!
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.
