No matter whether an accident involved a freshly licensed teen or an experienced driver, knowing what to do (or not do) is essential to bouncing back.
All it takes is a little preparation to get your car winter-ready and to keep from getting into an icy situation.
Stokes Auto Service in Bridgeport is the greatest ever!! My 1995 Bonnieville broke down on me the other day at a stop light. Since I was in Bridgeport returning home from my friend’s, I had no idea where to have it towed to. Thankfully, my friend called a few friends for a referral and I had my car towed to Stokes. He immediately checked it out, and not only found the problem of why it died on me, but another ongoing problem of which over the last few years I had taken to numerous mechanics who couldn’t figure it out. He noticed the alternator in my car was not the correct one and the mechanic that installed it forced it in and cracked my Intake Manifold. I was shocked he figured this out, especially so quickly and I hadn’t even mentioned any other issues. He knew my car like the back of his hand!My car was ready 2 days later and now is running like new! He was wonderful! He was spot-on in diagnosing my car within a couple of hours. He thoroughly explained everything to me. Their prices are fair and reasonable and I know he did quality work. I was very comfortable with him. He could have taken advantage of me since my car was towed there and I was “stuck”. But he didn’t. I know I would have paid much more for the same work elsewhere. Money is tight for me and he did all that work within my budget that we discussed.Stokes Auto Service is professional, honest and I got the heartfelt feeling that he really cared about my safety (not the money) and wasn’t going to let me leave with a car that may have jeopardized my safety. And he didn’t know me from Adam! I am so very happy that I have found a mechanic that I can trust! I will not go anywhere else, because being a woman; I have been ripped off by mechanics in the past. It will be a bit of a drive for me to use him, but totally worth it! He has a new happy customer for life! I cannot rave enough about Stokes Auto Service!!!!Tina UEvergreen Park
I search for a car on the internet for a year and a half found Western Nissan Avenue I saw a white Nissan Frontier 2008 manual shift for $14,000.00 it took me three days to get a sales person to take me serious. I finally spoke to Don and I ask him to check the car to make sure that it is manual shift he told me yes.I ask what was the next step they fax me the invoice I sent the company a Cashier Check by FEDEX it took 10 days to clear. I got a shipping company to pick up my truck they were the best my truck arrived before the date.My truck had to stay on the US dock for 10 days before export to the Bahamas. When my truck arrive I was very disappointed it was AUTOMATIC not MANUAL TRANSMISSION it was dirty , smelly, no gas and Air conditioning not working. I contacted David to ask for some refund because that was false advertisement with the truck no reply no answer this company don't follow through with there customers. If they follow through I would have sent this company plenty of business but they didn't .I was able to drive the car off the dock with no problem and it still working well after 5 months, I was able to get the ac fix. Overall they just need to be careful with the details of what they advertise on vehicles. I will buy from they again but I will fly to Chicago to see the vehicle.M. Smith from The Bahamas!
Once again Western and Bryn Mawr Auto repair helped me and got my 20 year old car running. I would hate to be the mechanic that fixes my car because my car is so old and am sure my car is hard to work on. Sami and George's mechanics are always nice, friendly and very respectful with me and I always walk away with a feeling like my job would have costed more had I gone to say a dealership. These are good neighborhood guys they always are more than fair with me and they keep my little ford in tip top shape for a 20 year old car. This time they did my break pads, rotors, tie rod, ball joint, 1 stud 2 calipers and an oil change. I am not going to say what I paid but asked around and everyone I asked guessed a much higher price than what these two brothers charged me. They are truly angels and are the best. Let me also add that my 20 year old car starts up like a brand new car in the cold weather and I really think it is because Sami and George's mechanics take such good care of my car. I bring it in every 3 months for an oil change and they look it over for me and make sure it is safe for me to drive. I am so thankful to them.
This has been one of the best experiences of my life. Chris was beyond awesome.My credit and income every month is very limited. While one sales guy was quick to give up on me Chris and Dimittri made sure i stayed in a great mood and told me hold on and have faith. The first car was not fitting my needs at all. but because of my situation i knew i had to br grateful for a second chance. just as we were signing the paper work they called Chris and told him they found me something 4 years newer and 50 dollars less a month. I went to 4 dealerships in two days and he was painful to keep hearing no. Not only did i get a car but i received hope that i can take baby steps to rebuild my credit and that was like a breath of fresh air. Chris by faris friendly polite outgoing and he is just a guy who loves his job, That's so hard to find these days. Thank you Chris for making this one of the happiest days of my life.P.S don't be surprised if i pop up with lunch. its on me after all you guys are saving me 50bucks a month keep up the outstanding work. be blessed.
I found Marvin through my uncle when my Ford Explore was having problems. I was told by another mechanic that I needed to have all new ball joints. This was going to be over $3000 worth of work. I went to see Marvin and told him I needed a quote to have all my ball joints replaced. After he had my car for an hour he called back and said I needed to have 2 shocks replaced and one new tire. This totaled $200 worth of work. Because he was honest with me I was sold. I have taken 3 different cars to him. He is always fair, honest and never tries to screw me. I have recommended him to many friends who have all had great experiences! For as long as I live in the Chicago area I will bring my car to Marvin's. Marvin's is one of the few businesses left in the neighborhood (in which I grew up in) that has remained true. It you want a Latte with your oil change or if you can't understand someone with a Spanish accent that is a personal problem and you need to have more than just your car fixed!
Well I can say is WOW! I just picked up my car from Dayton and I am so pleased. I had an accident a few weeks ago, where I had a good amount of damage. My insurance company recommended Dayton, so I had my car towed there. The shop manager Glen was very nice and explained the whole process to me and answered all my questions with sencerity. My car was in the shop for 17 days, in which they kept me informed the whole time. Since my car was in the shop, I called to ask if they could also fix a small dent that I had prior. Robin, the lady in the office was so helpful with getting back to me with a price and again answered anything I asked about my car. When it came to the insurance work, Robin took care of everything for me, to where I didn't have any of that stress. My car looks fantastic and back to the way it was before. I am very thankful to the entire shop and I will recommend them to anyone I know. Thanks again Glen and Robin for making my car look great and treating me so well.
My partner had been searching for a Kia Soul and found one that was very decently priced at Baha Auto Sales. At first, driving to the lot, we were both a little skeptical as it's location is less than desirable. However, once we drove up to the lot, the front was packed with newer makes and models, including 2010 and 2011 Lexus and Nissan models. It wasn't your average skeevy roadside car dealership. The guy we worked with, Chris, was very nice and very accommodating. At first we were concerned that we might get taken, that they'd be fast-talking, customer-question-interrupting car salesmen, and although they were, they were not so over-bearing that you couldn't ask your questions. Chris worked really hard to get us the best interest rate possible, even arguing with a banker. In the end, my partner got exactly the car she wanted, for a completely reasonable price with nice customer service to boot. All of the employees were nice, even funny, and helpful. Thanks, guys!
I bought a new 2015 Dodge Caravan from Marino from Kenny Sher. He was the nicest salesman i have met in over 30 years of my car buying experiences. I was referred over to him buy a friend who had a great experience as well. They know exactly what to do for your budget and how to get to a comfortable payment when i needed to stick to a budget. I got everything i wanted in the truck for the price i needed to be at. Not to many people can say he same thing about car buying. I was one of the lucky ones and it had a huge part to do with the salesman knowing his job. Most places would show you cars you most definitely cannot afford but love to have and make you fall in love with the car, but Kenny and the manager Mike did the exact opposite. I gave them the price and payment i needed to be at and they gave me more than i could bargain for. I recommend anyone to go see Kenny and the fine staff at Marino for the best service you can ask for. Highly Highly Highly RECOMMENDED
Thank you for restoring my old car a 1994 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4, it was almost impossible job . Your staff was very professional and absolute joy to work with. The job was to change the rear Rocket Pinion and also the rusting lines for the steering system. In order to do this they have also to change the struts and lower down all the rear components. It wasn't an easy task since there are no parts for this car. I found some in California and Mr Armando some in Chicago. They kept me informed throughout the process of the repair and of testing my car to make sure everything was working properly before returning the car to me. I truly believe you are one of the best mechanic in the area along with your son. I'm going to tell everyone. I know of my experience. You are truly a company that provides high quality auto repair with integrity, honesty, and excellent customer service at a fair price and with a personal touch. Andres Laguna.
Recently I was involved in a serious accident and the car was "banged up" pretty good. I couldn't imagine that my car with nearly $12,000 in damages would ever look or drive the same. Boy was I wrong!!! When I picked the car up from Dayton Auto Rebuilders, I couldn't believe how perfect it looked,--as if nothing ever happened!! Little did I know that the best was yet to come. The morning after I picked the car up, I drove it from Chicago to my hometown,-St. Louis, Missouri to visit family. The ride was incredible (just like normal)!! I was so happy!!! When I arrived in St. Louis, my extended family scrutinized the car and tried to find "flaws",---there were none (LOL!). Thank you Dayton for delivering service beyond the expected! Because of you, I can keep my car and drive it again with confidence and pride!!!! You guys are AWESOME!!! Gratefully Yours,Lori McClenton
