Quick Lane
Quality: Average. Friendliness: Above Average. Timeliness: Below Average. I took my 2015 F350 Platinum for it's first oil change. Front desk guy is very friendly. They gave me a first time discount - with was great. I waited 1.5 hours for an oil change/tire rotation at "Quick Lane". Not so quick. But since it was "Ford Dealer" quality, I settled for the slowness. In a hurry, I jumped in the truck and went home - without checking it over. Got home & found oil footprints on the floor mats (despite their paper protector), oily handprints all over the drivers door, all over the grill. Obviously not wearing gloves & being careful. Then, I wondered what the service was like... So I popped the hood, checked the oil. It was still black. I've changed oil on my 2003 F350 7.3L myself for 5 years until I bought a new truck. It's always dark brown - not black - after the change. Under the truck, it looked like an oil filter bomb went off. There was oil everywhere. Won't be back.

Hoesly Eco Automotive
Hoesly's was fantastic to work with--we explained that we were moving to CO and needed to see if our vehicles would make such a long drive. We had serious doubts about one and weren't sure about the other. They stopped the diagnostic on our first vehicle after they discovered that it was NOT good for such a long trip. They were thorough in their explanations and we really appreciated them stopping so they didn't need to charge the entire diagnostic fee--it was very thoughtful. On our second vehicle they again were mindful that we were on a budget (what with moving and such) and pointed out the items that they would recommend most immediately and what they would just keep in mind for later--once the dust had settled from our move. They were very professional and super helpful throughout the whole process. They even reminded us of their repair warranty and that even in CO, if we had a problem with anything they fixed--to call them and they'd still guarantee it. Amazing!

Pegoraro Auto Repair
I am a single mom of two young children, and very nervous about the trustworthiness of mechanics. Pegoraro has given me excellent service, been generous with their advice, and helped me twice for no charge with quick concerns. They seem more concerned about doing a fine service than just making as much money as they can. The work they've done for me and their knowledge of their trade are excellent. I believe I have finally found "my" mechanic!

Absolutely the BEST mobile mechanic service around! I live in Medford and needed help for my daughter in Portland on two separate occasions (after hours). I was treated with respect and both times the mechanic came out promptly and did an amazing job! The service is excellent, the people who helped me were very kind and understanding, and I will always put my trust in BZBEST Mobile Mechanics. Thank you Mike and Crystal! :)

Anderson M B & Co Datsun Nissan Repair
I have been dealing with Matt for over 20 years. It's one of a very few repair shops that you can take you car there and just tell him to fix it and "Not Worry" about your bill. It's one of the last honest repair shops left... Thanks MattJohn G Vancouver Wa

Lupe's Auto Repair
Lupe is by FAR the best mechanic I have met in Vancouver. His prices are the BEST. He has NEVER told me to replace something that isn't broken. He will SHOW me why something has to be replaced. I will ALWAYS go to Lupe for help!

Dent Eagle (Mobile Paintless Dent Repair)
Called Dent Eagle when I got a dent in my door. He was very punctual on what time he told me that he would be at my home. Within a hour my truck was perfect again and you would never know that I had a dent in my door.
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.
