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!

Salvage Bid- Online Auto Auctions
A few of my friends and I needed a car so we decided to check out Salvage Bid. I was hesitant to the whole idea of buying a salvage car online as I have never been to an auction and hence had no idea regarding how the whole process works. However all my concerns were allayed once I visited salvagebid.com. The reason being the simple and uncomplicated registration and other processes that Salvage Bid follows. What more the site contained detailed information regarding these steps which makes buying a salvage car a child’s play. Overall, I would say it was a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend buying from Salvage Bid.

This has got to be the BEST car buying experience I've ever had. Matt Austin, him self helped me find the car that I wanted. I bought a BEAUTIFUL Red VW Beetle from them, at a Great Price, and low miles. The car has had 0 problems! He was the nicest sales person/owner of a company that I've ever dealt with! I would like to say to any of you who give them a bad rep, you should have done your home work, and tested the car first. I drove this car for several miles, before I decided to buy it! And matt was there helping me all the way! GREAT car Company and Great people.

10/2014 I visited this lot (Cash on hand, which they weren't aware of) I was searching for a DECENT vehicle that was AFFORDABLE! All I saw while there was a bunch of over priced lemons! They were friendly, but unwilling to even try to budge when it came to the Durango I was interested in. The Mileage was outrageously high for the price they were asking! Due to them being friendly to me I gave them 2 stars only and I am sure the car lot down the road appreciated my business that day!

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!

Salvage Bid- Online Auto Auctions
I was looking for a second car but didn’t have the budget to buy a brand new vehicle. One of my friends suggested me to check out SalvageBid. Though I was a bit skeptical, I decided to give it a try. The online auction site had an exhaustive inventory of vehicles of from various models and brands. I registered on the website bought a Toyota Corolla. I was satisfied with the experience and I would recommend SalvageBid to people looking for used cars.

BZBEST Mobile Mechanics
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! :)

Came in here a whim because I'm on a pretty limited budget thanks to life :-) The salesman was beyond friendly and showed me cars I could afford. Never pushed me to spend more then I had, was completely honest with me about any issues there may have been with each vehicle I looked at. Was definitely the first car experience I've had in a long time that didn't make me feel like I needed a shower after purchasing my vehicle!
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.
