I have been going to this garage since Tracy was located at the Exxon gas station. The workers there are awesome and I have a great experience every time. I highly reccomend this place to anyone with any kind of automotive repair. Their labor is fair and their work is outstanding. The person who gave the bad review must have had the wrong garage to complain about. Johnsons #2 will always have my buisness, and they welcome it. If I have any questions, they answer them, and they will talk with you for the best solution for a problem you are having. All in all, a honest garage with highly skilled tech. I will be going back very soon to get my clutch replaced. It has over 250K on it...

My car broke down early in the morning and needed to find a vehicle. Since this wasn't planned I wasn't in a position to put more than $300.00 down, after filling out the form for credit online, I was contacted by Scott Riley when the dealership opened. Scott spent thr whole day working to get me a vehicle I could afford. Scott called me numerous times during the day to keep me updated on his progress and by the afternoon had found me a vehicle that I was more than pleased with. He also had the financing approved. I've never had anybody work this hard to find me a vehicle. Scott and Garth went way above and beyond.

I have taken my vehicles here for inspections and some general maintenance for over a decade. They have always treated me fairly and the work was well done. This past Thursday a friend from Michigan was down to deliver some bulky parts and the brake pedal on his F250 started easing down to the floor. I gave him Johnson's number and they were able to work him in. They had to get parts but worked on the vehicle after closing time on Saturday to get him back on the road. He was delighted to get his truck repaired and the cost was considerably less than he expected. Highly recommended.

I visited many dealerships in my local area and very little credit and all other dealers could not help. I came to Gasoline Alley Cars and Peppie greeted me with all kindness. I found a VERY nice one owner Honda Odyssey with super low miles and clean as a pin. Scott the credit manager was able to help me as a first time buyer and I was APPROVED. If you are looking for the right place to buy a vehicle, come to Gasoline Alley. They have over 250 nice vehicles to choose from. This place ROCKS!!!

I've been a resident of this area for 33 years, and he is among the very few mechanics that knows his trade thoroughly.

I came to Gasoline Alley for a car that I found online. they helped me a lot more that I was expecting. My credit is not the best,but they managed to work with me where other dealerships wouldn't. Not only that, I thought that I had all the paperwork ready when I came in. I didn't so, Scott working with me for a half a day when they were in there peak hours. The paperwork ended up sorted out and now I am leaving in a new used car. Thank you Gasoline Alley.

I would recommend Gasoline Alley. It was a clean and professional place. I was greeted right away by the staff... They were very respectful, nice and even willing to work with us on getting a car on Christmas Eve. Scott was awesome and id not try to rip us off. He made sure we could afford the car on our budget, not theirs. The first car we were very interested in was a little out of budget, and he found us a better car that was even cheaper!

I've given up hope in finding a good used car dealership. It's been years. This place is 90 minutes from my house but I saved a few thousands on the deal, great car! Bingo auto is a young company managed and owned by the same 2 guys you will be talking to, it's their business and they want to make it a success. They are honest and not blinded by money which is rare in this industry. Thank you guys, I'm recommending you to everyone I know.

After weeks of searching, this dealership had exactly what I was looking for. I called about the car,they were incredibly helpful with any questions I had. Before making the 5 hour trip down there, the salesman Garth actually text me additional photos that eased my mind. No disappointments on my end! The car was exactly what he described it to be. Definitely check out their selection. Will buy again if they have what I am looking for.

The night my daughter had an accident was the first time I have encountered this business. Our roll back driver was Corey, super nice guy and super reasonable I would recommend this business to anyone. We had a lot of Christmas purchases in the car so knowing I had to be at the hospital with my daughter Corey put the car in the garage for the night so no one would steal anything. I am so thankful for everything they did for us.
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.
