Santos Auto Repair & Auto Electric
I had a wonderful service for a radiator that my car needed.. He gave me a fair quote and installed it the same day.. He also told me what the car needed in the near future and what suggestions are to take and what not to do.. Him and his workers were friendly and polite and very respectful.. I thank them for always taking care of all of our five cars.. Thank you Mr. Santos and his wife!!

When i walked in and talked to the workers i got this feeling that does not exist in businesses anymore. They did not pressure to sell me anything. This is the shop where u can go in and get the work you need done without them trying to sell u anything extra... workers are super friendly. Work well done, no pressure, and excellent employees, there is nothing better than that.

I work on cars as a hobby. I have gone to Monster Muffler (formerly Avalon Muffler) a few times in the past and they are consistantly fair and honest. The quality of the work is excellent. I can't say enough good things about them. Very professional.

Great guys. They arrived on time, set up and got to work quickly. They took the time to show me the crud they filtered from our barfeeder tanks, and left them remarkably clean. We'll us them again.
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.
