Vestavia Auto Service
Ordinarily, I don't give recommendation to people about who they should do business with; however, Vestavia Auto Service is the exception to the rule. VAS is one of the few businesses I never hesitate to send people to. They has been taking care of our vehicles since 1996 and I wouldn't go anywhere else. Everything from putting a whole new engine in to checking out used cars before we bought them. "Mr Mike" and his crew are great mechanics.

I have been taking my family's cars to Estes for years. They have always treated me right. They are honest, friendly, fair and competitively priced. Besides tires, they also do alignments, brakes, oil changes, inspections and most minor repairs. I would much rather deal with a local business and neighbor instead of giving my hard-earned dollars to a mega corporation based thousands of miles away. I would highly recommend Estes to anyone.

We took our 4runner to Vestavia Auto Service and we were very pleased with the service! Everyone we talked to there was very friendly! We took the car in to have a wheel barring replaced and they had it ready in a few hours! They charged half of what the other companies quoted! Very pleased with this company and will use them again!!

We are years-long customers of Estes. They always take care of us, and my wife does not get creeped out by any of the guys there. To the contrary, she trusts them that they're not taking advantage of her because she's female. consistently good service.

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.
