Automotive Experts
I have used Automotive Experts for several of my vehicles and I've never had a problem that wasn't resolved in a timely matter. Whenever I take my vehicles in for repairs, I explain my issues and after the vehicle is checked out I'm contacted regarding the plan and price for repairs. Nicole and Wayne have always informed us of any recommendations for repairs when needed. Repairs are never conducted without approval. If I have a problem that might have occurred after a previous repair, i call the shop, take the vehicle in to be check,and if the problem is related to the previous repair the issue is fixed. I've never had any issues with Nicole or Wayne when I question a previous repair. My husband and I both have vehicle Maintenance experience and have no problem checking behind (any) shop to make sure the work we paid for was actually performed. So far we haven't had any instances that have led us to believe we were being ripped off. This is why I continue to drive across town to have my repairs done by Automotive Experts. I am an actual customer who knows what it feels like to be ripped off by a Mechanic shop therefore when I find a good shop, such as Automotive Experts, I share my experience.

German Autowerks
There should definitely be more than 5 stars to rate this establishment. As a long-time customer who has used German Autowerks services since the days the shop was further up Augusta Rd 12 years ago I feel very capable of providing a review that is 100% accurate. Brandon's expertise as a mechanic, perseverance, and honesty continue to permeate everything he does. Having owned several Mercedes over the years, no problem is beyond his capability, having saved me thousands in repairs. I personally know people that travel from surrounding states for car repairs knowing it will be performed correctly by the German Autowerks staff. They put your mind at ease, knowing that your vehicle was repaired properly, unlike some other independent garages and Mercedes dealerships.

I had my car at another shop in West Columbia they told me that I needed a new transmission so a friend told me about Automotive Experts so I could price around. so when I called and got a price they were almost 500 cheaper. so I had them pick my car up to do the transmission repairs when they got my car in they found that I didn't really need a transmission. Automotive Experts saved me over 1000 dollars! Thank you so much, you now have a lifetime customer.

Econo Auto Painting
You get what you paid! I regret I made a decision to do it here. They quote me $600 for a job, other decent shops asked for $1100. Yes, it saves me 500 bucks but the quality is marginal. This is definitely not a factory-quality paint and body repair. The finish is different from oem painting. And their body repair is not good either. The edge of the rear panel is not parallel with the rear door. I just hope the paint could last but not crack in a month.

The people are great, honest company, they do good work and use good parts. I had to take my car back a second time to get some kinks ironed out and they changed 2 bulbs and gave me an oil change for free. So glad I found this Place. This is exactly how business should be conducted. If I need any work done on my car in the future, that's where I'm going.

German Autowerks is outstanding. I have used them on my 2 VW Passat's and my BMW Wagon for over 4 Years. They provide the most honest, accurate and cost effective repairs of any Dealer or Repair Shop I have every used. Brandon's knowledge is unsurpassed. Truly the best service I have ever received. They are a 5+++.

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.
