Sangster Garage
I, and my parents before I was even driving age (started driving in 1975), have used Sangster's pretty much exclusively. I brought my first car here for approval, and have done the same with every one since. From minor tune-ups to major rebuild and everything between, three generations of our family have been happy to rely on Sangster's. Robert Sangster Sr. went far above and beyond keeping our whole family's cars running well. When he retired, his son ("Slugger") took up the reins very efficiently. This little shop serves it's clients more like friends than like customers. Their prices are very fair, their service is excellent, and their dedication to us is remarkable. I give Sangster's Garage my absolute highest rating.

Robert found the mystery vibration in the front of my car. He replaced the problem part, properly torqued the part I installed, and replaced the front motor mount that was broken. If you are looking for a honest shop that will take care of your car this is the place to go to.

River Valley Driveline
After calling around in the area, this business was the best. The lady that answer the phone was very friendly, knowledgeable and they gave us a estimate for repairs and a repair date. Altho the repair date was two days later than originally stated. We were kept up to date about the needed repairs and was notified when finished. They did a excellent repair to my husband's 4 wheel drive truck and he is very satisfied with the transmission repair. I would recommend River Valley Driveline to anyone in the western part of Arkansas needing transmission repair .Also, the repair cost was exactly as stated, no more extra cost. I will come back again if ever I need work done on any vehicle.

Shade-Makers
I have used Shade-Makers the past 15 years for all my tinting needs on two homes and 6 cars without a single problem of any kind. They are the best in the business, fast, experienced and professional, using only the top of the line tinting materials for all their projects. I have recommended Shade-Makers to many of my friends over the years, who after using Shade-Makers' tinting service for their homes and cars have experience the same great results I have - 100% satisfaction.

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.
