My experience with Dave and Andrew (they run the front desk) has been a pleasure. I have limited income and had two vehicles break on me within 2 weeks together. The truck mostly quit running as if no electrical or bad catalyctic converters. They tested everything and it took 1 day to identify the problem was that the Fuel Pump was on it's last breath. They replaced it the next day, and only charged me for the labor to put it in.My Wife's Buick was doing similar, cutting out, dying, etc. Code was saying MAS senser, and other codes behind it. They again spent MORE than a day working on, replacing different sensers, etc and after many hours of digging, they identified that it was not related to the MAS< but was actually the Crank Senser with a bad Cam Sensor. After they replaced these, they again, kept the total down and allowed me to pay a few days later after I got my next check. They did not scapl me and they were honest.Twice while I was waiting in the waiting area, i had two different women tell me they were so glad to find a place to bring there car and feel like they were not being taken advantage of (just because they were a single woman)...If you do not believe this, I can be reached at (801)403-6865 (cell) as I never knew these people before, maybe there still is hope that honesty and consciencous will prevail....

The Automotive Back Shop
The guys always take care of everything quickly. I take my car there before we go on vacation and they check everything for free and let us know if there's anything that's wrong. They keep my family and our safety as a priority and they will for you too. Great prices, great service, family safety, etc. what more could you ask for? I would recommend them to anyone.

Hillside Tire & Service
When you pick up your vehicle from inspection and emissions... check your VIN number on the documentation they give you... They incorrectly entered my VIN which DMV pointed out... causing me to return to Hillside for corrections... This made registering my vehicle a real hassel...:(

Great guys, who were very honest and forth right about what I needed to do with my car. They could have taken me for a ride with a check engine light and they were outstanding.

Perez Auto Repair & Tires
Got some tires here last week. They were a great price and they put them on so quickly. A little out of the way for me but I'd definitely go back for anything else.

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.
