Through a miscommunication, my car was supposedly repaired within a day after I shared it would take me multiply payroll checks to replace a fuel pump at his price of $827.65 when Midnight Mechanic could fix for $500.For 3 weeks I rode the Wilmington transit and walked all over town due to the miscommunication being on both sides but no ownership from the mechanic, other than taking taking my hard earned money.Even when I picked up my vehicle he didn't apologize for the miscommunication nor did he explain anything about my new fuel pump, warranty or anything of the sort.Horrible prices and customer service. Shop around, you'll thank me later.

Purchased a vehicle from this place and everything was good. Until we took it to get things done to it like oil change and flushes. And the mechanic informed us that the sub frame is cracked and it is unsafe to drive. Contacted the dealership and they will not do anything about it. Contacting a lawyer.

Worst experience I have ever had with a dealership. This company covered up so many problems with the car I bought from them without even having the decency to inform me that the gas gage did not work. I left the lot with the car and days later I broke down on the highway because I was unaware that I had no gas in the vehicle along with many other issue they failed to inform me of. Because of this dealership's deception I was left stranded and lost my job because they did not sell me a reliable car or inform me of any issue to make a quick buck off of someone.

Bill, the owner of Protech on W. Hwy 22 is the sharpest auto technician I have ever dealt with. He is very knowledgable about the problems I have brought to him and has dealt fairly with me over the years. He might not be the cheapest guy in town, but he is honest and a man of integrity who will probably save you money in the long run by not charging you for services you don't need. Historically, I have done much of my own work, so I'm no dummy myself when it comes to cars. But when something is beyond my backyard capabilities, Protech is the place I trust to do the job right the first time. I have referred many of my friends to him and they all speak highly of his services.
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.
