Wrench Dawg Automotive
I've never written a review online before, but I was just trying to look up Wrench Dawg's contacts to give to a friend in Tucson, and I saw that other bad review so I had to respond. Wrench Dawg is the BEST! I generally have a great distrust of auto mechanics, because I'm a young woman and often feel like I will be ripped off because I don't know enough about cars to know any better. But John ("Wrench Dawg") has done excellent and extremely thorough work on my car, and has always been honest and forthcoming about explaining things to me so I understand what the problem with my car is and how what he is doing would fix it. His rates have also always been lower than or at least comparable to others I've been quoted, and he'll come to you to do the work, so it's more convenient than having to drop it off at a shop. John has worked on my car several times over the course of a few years (I have a very old, but well-loved, car) and done a stellar job. He will make sure the job gets done right, even if it takes him a lot longer to do it, which I really appreciate. Wrench Dawg has my highest recommendation (which is saying a lot coming from a skeptic like myself!). I no longer live in Tucson, and whenever something comes up with my car I always wish I did just so that I could bring it to someone who is knowledgeable, thorough, honest, and fair, like Wrench Dawg.

Rita Ranch Automotive & Tire
My family and I have been going to Vantana Auto for a few years. They have a client for life with me!I have been taken advantage of by other repair shops in the past. I am a handicapped woman, using a cane. I am not gullible, but if you don't know what is wrong with your vehicle and you need it, you can be vulnerable. Having had bad experiences in the past with other auto shops I was nervous about trying someone new. First we brought our daughter's car to Ventana and they treated her very well. I also took them a vehicle that I had already taken to two other independent places to get quotes from. Ventana gave me a quick and accurate assessment and quoted me less than I had expected by about 10%. They repaired it fast and I haven't had a moments' worry since.Since then I have brought them several other vehicles including my beloved old truck (they rebuilt the transmission.) I recently brought my All Wheel Drive 3/4 ton handicap van into them because it made a noise I wasn't sure about. They went through it completely and when they couldn't find anything wrong, they didn't charge me. I recommend them to my friends and family regularly and I've never heard anyone have an issue with them. I really believe that the employees and owners of Ventana Auto care about their clients. I feel very happy that we have a trustworthy mechanic!

Tucson Foreign Car Specialist
As a 62 year old recently homeless woman who managed to hang onto my 1990 Toyota, I walked into Tucson Foreign Car Specialists today thinking I was losing all I had left. I didn't know if it was worth fixing the exhaust leak, or would it cost more than I could ever afford. I knew what this could cost, & was shocked to find this repair would only be about a 6th of what I expected, totally manageable! Erik took the time to talk with me about the car, & look it over to reassure me it's not in nearly as bad of shape as I thought. He let me know the oil leak I knew I had will need repair but I was OK to postpone it as long as I check & add oil when needed. I walked out of this place feeling good about how long I should be able to keep this car & knowing I'd found the most honest, caring people I could possibly have found to look after my "old friend". I fully intend to recommend Tucson Foreign Car Specialists to everyone. DO NOT HESITATE to bring your vehicle here - you will not be sorry!!!

S P S Autosport
Being a military person I move around a lot and yes we like fast things. Well I just had replaced my clutch and with the heat out here I guess that style of clutch was no good. So searching up and down for a good reputable shop I came a crossed SPS AUTOSPORT. so I went in to get a feel of the shop and I will say I was impressed with the knowledge and the atmosphere of the place. I had them install a new comp stage 3 segmented Kevlar clutch and I have been very pleased with the support and fallow up to make sure everything is still operating the way it should be. I have been planning on building a EJ25 block for my STI and after further talking with the staff we are putting together a sleeved block and going for some high goals. I will gladly go back to this shop. Thanks Mike and Richard

Brake Masters
I took my vehicle in for an oil change ONLY, but was told I needed two radiator hoses and fan belts. The mechanics didn't talk to me about these things; they only talked to the manager, who then relayed this info to me. But the mechanics should have talked to me and explained why new hoses and belts were needed. This isn't acceptable repair-shop protocol. Mechanics are supposed to speak with the customer and explain what needs to be done and why. The sneakiness I experienced at this shop is a bad sign that rip-offs are being done, repairs done that don't need to be done, etc. What I don't like about this shop is that there are always new mechanics there, as if they rotate through the city. Anyway, they are to be watched carefully from now on.

Perfection Auto Works Inc
I cannot begin to express how thankful I am for Mike and the guys at Perfection Auto Works. I'm a young woman with little interest in cars, so it's pretty easy to screw me over when it comes to maintenance on my vehicle. I pay no more for an oil change here than I would at Brake Masters or Fletchers, where they screw me over and manipulate me into paying for extra costly repairs that don't do jack. I will never take my cars anywhere else. When the guys did over $2500 in work to my '98 Volkswagen, Mike pulled out a box with all the old parts that they took from my car and explained why they needed to be replaced. WOW!!! The man takes care of my car as if I were his own daughter he was looking out for.

Manny Auto Repair
I needed 2 front tires for my Astro van. I called around, and Manny's was the first place to have the size I needed. When I arrived at his shop, I was greeted warmly and professionally. He showed me the different tires available and let me choose. He asked me if I had a mechanic, and I told him that my roommate is my mechanic and does my work for free. He proceeded to show me a couple of other things that would need to be addressed. Zero pressure. Manny has been in the same location for 30 years. Every business should strive to have the knowledge, experience, professionalism and customer service that Manny’s Auto Repair has shown me. I will definitely go there again!

Advantage Auto Repair
Take advantage of the free A/C inspection, clip the oil change coupon off website at http://advantage-autorepair.com/. I talked to Oscar (owner) about a program called flex pay to help me pay for my repair it was easy I have 90 days to pay it back no intrest, so it was good that I found someone to help and understand my sitation. Over all it is a great place to go for auto repair services. Nobody was going to help me with the cost and work needed on my vehicle. Thank you ^*^

Desert Auto Doctor
Will definitely go back. I had a small leak in my radiator and got quotes ranging from $300 to $411. Johnny’s price was competitive, and his location convenient. I’ve changed a few radiators in my time, and it looks like he did a good job. He also went the extra effort to check all of my other fluids and let me know that I needed a new air filter but there was no attempt to upsell me on things I didn’t ask for or need. He’s friendly and stands behind his work in writing—he also gave me the impression that he stands behind his work regardless.

He tries to give you helpful advice to keep your Honda or Acurarunning in top form.Why take your Honda or Acura any place else?
Tips & Advices
You should change your oil filter whenever you change your oil, that is, approximately every 7,500 miles.
A oil filter is a device that helps remove contaminants from motor oil as it passes through the engine. A pump pushed the oil through the filter where it is strained and goes back to the engine.
High-mileage oil contains special conditioners that are said to help prevent gaskets from drying out and thus preventing leaks. This can be beneficial to engines with many miles on them.
Synthetic oil costs more than conventional oil, but the price is offset by the need for less frequent oil changes due to the oil’s durability.
Tools needed to change your own oil include jack stands or ramps, a wrench, an oil filter wrench, an oil drip pan, funnel, replacement oil filter, and replacement oil.
