Did a great job on my car

Wow! One of the best service experiences we have had with our trailer tires. They were so nice to stop what they were doing and put on our spare tires to get us back on the road. We were so lucky to have tire issues so close to this shop! Keep up the great work and customer service!

Richard, the owner, and his staff are so courteous and kind with their customers. I had my car repaired there a few months ago. They did an excellent job. A week or so later, they callled us, to make sure my car was still running well. That really impressed my husband and me. This was our first time getting repairs done by Jaz Automotive. I was concerned about the quality of work and final cost of repairs. Fears; such as, issues that can occur when dealing with auto repair shops and one repair leading to another. The work was great and cost very reasonable. If you're ever in need of auto repairs, Jaz Automotive is a great place to do business with and they're honest! Keep up the great work Jaz Automotive!

I had my new 4-Runner backed into by a driver insured with USAgencies. Parker Auto Body did the work for the estimated amount, had it ready BEFORE promised, & it looked like it had never been hit - looked BRAND NEW - Tight, no gaps, perfect paint match. It was even washed, Armor-Alled, & they provided 2 spare keys (1 which operates my remote locks & alarm, just like from the factory - easily a $150 value for free!)... These folks are the best I've found locally so far. I would do business again!

Dropped my vehicle off and told it would be ready in a week. I had an agreement on a rental vehicle that would be a week also. Two weeks pass and my truck was still not ready. I was forced to turn in the rental car and I was stuck with no vehicle to drive. I finally got a call saying my truck was ready to be picked up. When I came to pick it up it had no grill or front end. I was told I would have to drive this around with these parts missing until they came in. I month later the parts arrived and the shop had no interest in installing them anytime soon. I was stuck with doing it myself.

I've had good experiences with this shop on smaller repairs. Large repairs different story. I felt as if I was not their number one priority as my vehicle stayed up there for a month until I was told that I would need to find someone else to do the work.
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.
