After Hours Auto Repair Inc
Idk if it was just me but I have mixed feelings about this place. I walk in randomly ask they if they have a sale on their ac check up ect since I heard a lot of places are doing free diagnostics. They said they had a 90.00 special to put the freon and charge your ac! Sick of being in the heat I agreed. I wait an hour or so and come back to check on it they tell me oh there was parts of your ac missing (relays) that we put freon in it but it won't work without those parts. Quoted me 200.00 and they couldn't guarantee anything. Then they said if that doesn't work it would cost me 1500 for a whole new ac thing. So instead of calling me and telling me these parts are missing thy cant do anything they still charged me the 90.00 for nothing. So with the print off they gave me of the 3 parts that were missing and the 200 quote I decided to quit wasting my money bout the 3 parts totaling 40.00 at autozone went to a mechanic on Oliver took him 3 sec to plug in relays and bam ice cold and he charged me 5.00. I was thinking it would be something huge to fix and bam there were seriously just a maker of plugging in something. Any mechanic could of looked at the ac box thing and could tell if parts were missing instead of charging me 100.00 just to tell me my ac won't work because of it. I'm glad i saved my 200.00 just wish I would of drive to someone who was doing a free diagnostics. From now on I'm going to wright automotive across from Mayberry he's honest and told me straight up what I needed and he only charged me for the product not labor for something tht took sec to fix. Of course I tip generously to someone honest. Anyways that was my first time and hopefully last time trying them out.

NTB National Tire & Battery
I have been coming to this shop for about ten years now. I am one of those people who call around to get the best price. What I have learned in those ten years is no matter what price people give you really doesn't matter if the job is not done right. It's good to know that not only is job done right at NTB on West Street but the prices are better then most. I have taken Cars, trucks, and an suv to this shop. I also like to see that some of the employees are the same ten years later (Pat). Greg is my Chevy guy in the shop as well. I like to use Jose on break work calipers, pads, drums, and rotors. The manager up there is Wes. The great thing about this guy is his knowledge and his commitment to the customer. I strongly recommend this shop in Wichita Kansas on West Street. Happy customers come back. So I will be back especially to take advantage of the buy 2 get 2 tires free. 5 stars. Thank you all very much for the jobs you have done for me.

NTB National Tire & Battery
I bought new tires from NTB in November of 2014. When installed they did their free alignment check and stated that my car needed aligned. I ask them if it would wait until the first rotation and was told yes but no longer. Fast forward to 8/7/2015 and 10K miles more. I had been real busy and neglected both my oil change and rotation. I had started noticing a little vibration and pull to the right. When I went into the store they couldn’t believe the tech had told me I could wait on the alignment and it had ruined both front tires. With no questions asked the were willing to replace both tires for free on the road hazard if I would pay for alignment and balance and buy road hazard for the new tires. Then they discounted the alignment by 25% for my troubles. I highly recommend the Wichita store and the service manager. Great business with exultant customer service!

Bill and his stellar service men are a world class organization. Bill treats you respect, honesty, and always gives you options for repairs as far as what each type of repair will give you as a result of that service. I would never take my car anywhere else. He’s better than most of my doctors and I have MS. With Bill I am in totally control as far as the destiny of my vehicle is concerned. He asks before he repairs. That is so refreshing. I’d give him a million stars if possible. I’m disabled and raised two boys of my own and he kept all of us safety driving on the road at all times. I’ve never about my car breaking down. If you want the best quality, for a low price and fast delivery, this Kansasland tire team lead by Bill is who you want to see. A+++++++

The Clutch Guys
I was having problems with my Dodge Avenger and took it to another shop and they told me the repairs were going to be around $1,500!! The mechanic was so rude and I felt like he was just trying to take advantage of the fact that I am a woman and that I do not know a whole lot about cars. I decided to get a second opinion so I took it to The Clutch Guys. Thank God I did!! Turns out that the other shop was trying to scam me! The Clutch Guys diagnosed the actual problem and it was only $200! I was treated with kindness and respect and the owner took the time to show me exactly what the problem was and answered all my questions!It is so good to know that there are still some honest mechanics! I will be referring The Clutch Guys to all of my friends and family!

Wright Way Auto Service & Repair
Just bought a new car and started to freak out when I started to feel a kick in my transmisson at 30-40 mph. I called autozone to see if they would check my transmisson out since they tested other car parts of mine. They said thy don't but recommend me to wright automotive by maple and west. So I go there and we drive my car instantly when it kicked he knew exactly what it was. Said it sounded like a weak transmission checked my transmisson fluid which was low. So he put some transmission fluid in and it started to slowly quit kicking. It's been 2 days now and my transmission quit kicking! Made me so happy to know he was honest and didn't try to sell me a new transmission! Hopefully won't have to but I'll continue to go there from now on.

Central Automotive
I've be Central Automotive since they've been at their current location. The owner, Bill, is the best guy ever. He began working on my Mercury Grand Marquis which had an electric short in it. He couldn't find it so he took the time to weld any where a weld could be and that finally fixed this very expensive problem. At the time, I was a mom with two children and no money. Bill was there whenever I needed him. I haven't gone to another repair shop because he deserves the loyalty. He has checked out every car I bought since the Merc and given me his A-ok until I bought a brand new car.

U Save Tire
I've run a lot of used tires on my vehicles over the years. U-Save Tire at K-15 & 47th St. South is by far the best company I've found for tires. They have extensive training and certifications, including flat repair, and offer a warranty on their tires to boot! My wait has never been more than a few minutes before they begin the work on my vehicle. I've been in and out in less than an hour total for 4 tires. They also sell new tires, with the same kind of installation time, even if they have to go pick up the tires at a local distribution warehouse.

The Clutch Guys
I phoned this business looking to have my air serviced in my vehicle. Bob told me to bring the car by and he would check it out. I did take the car by and he promptly diagnosed the issue and scheduled me an appointment. This mechanical issue was resolved and in the process they also picked up vacuum leak. This was an issue that had been looked at many times by mechanics but never resolved. They diligently worked on solving it and mastered the problem. I am extremely happy with the service I received and would highly recommend The Clutch Guys !
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.
