Four tips for keeping yourself and your vehicle safe while you wait.
When a car is damaged by an accident or weather, what can be repaired and what must be replaced? Or is it time to buy a new car?
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.
These guys are always on it every time I take my car. I've always received great service and they always wash my car. The first time I came to Findlay was because I didn't want to take my car to a closer Toyota because they're always busy and their employees aren't as friendly. Thanks for the great experience and I will be back again.
Just had new brake pads installed on my Dodge Ram. I highly recommend this business as the price is very fair and reasonable. They do excellent work
After having spent hundreds of dollars restoring my 97 Expedition, one morning it would not start. I transported my truck at considerable time, expense and energy from Pahrump to Gil's Auto).I asked for an analysis to make sure the correct solution would be applied to the problem. I was assured it needed new cylinder heads at a total cost for labor and other supplemental parts for $3500.00. I ordered re-manufactured heads (another $1200.00) and had them shipped directly to Gil's along with new head gaskets, head bolts,water pump, hoses, etc. The cylinder heads did not need to be replaced as doing so did not solve the problem. The passenger side cylinder head is pouring out oil. He bought brass plugs from a hardware store instead of using the proper steel plugs (which I had sent for free) from the cylinder head re-manufacturer. Gil had told me I needed a new front end (another $1800.00) as it was not safe to drive. I did not need anything but a rubber stop which was on a lifetime warranty.Gil lied to me and said my fuel pump was bad (another $1200.00) He replaced a new lifetime warranty pump with a used one with only a one year warranty. The air conditioner compressor was not properly secured, enabling it to wobble and now needs to be repreplaced. They let the truck sit for 7 months and didn't trickle charge the batteries. Gil blamed it on a parasitic draw. However, the supposed electrical parasitic draw was never addressed. They did however burn out two Optima batteries ($250.00) each by hitting it with 50 amps several times to try to start the truck. Despite countless promises to replace a critical check engine burnt out dash bulb, it was never done.My original fuel pump had a lifetime warranty, he threw it away - presumably so it couldn't be tested and found to be in proper working order He lied to me again, telling me he would mail me a check for $250.00 to cover the loss - never happened! Gil's also damaged several components.
Went out of their way to help, great shop. They were fast and affordable got out brakes and air conditioning working again. Really recommend
I found this shop full of expertise, professionalism n promptness. Not sure why some gave fewer stars. Manager, is up front n showed me just what was wrong, including my options. They have many promos, n I learned, they're willing to work with me, concerning pricing. I recommend this place, w/o a doubt...
This has been the worst experience I have ever had from a business, customer service point. These people called me back to purchase a vehicle with a trade in and $2000 down. It took them 25 days to tell me they could not find someone to finance me from the terms agreed upon. I have given the vehicle back and they have still not returned my $2000 back to me after 7 days. I have now been charged interest on my credit card for something I have not purchased. No-one will call me back or give me a resolution for my problem. This is not right and is a joke. If you have any good thing to say about this place; you got lucky or you work there. Don't ever deal with these people if you have a choice
I bought Ford Focus from Towbin in May. Let me list the sh*t these guys pulled on me.1 There was only one key without the entry buttons,no big deal i thought until i tried to one made and was told it would be $280. I was also told that the car did not have remote entry.That was a lie,you just needed the key with the buttons on it, that key would cost $3802 the transmission was hesitant but I was told it was a double-clutching transmission.Another lie.I did some research on the vehicle and this transmission has troubles.So I called Towbin three days after the sale and they told me to take it to Ford myself.I told them BS I wanted them to get it fix and I needed a courtesy car while they fix the Focus. After much rambling they agreed but when I took the car down to the Towbin did not want to give me the courtesy car.They finally relented after I got extremely pissed.3 The backup camera/radio station readout did not work and Towbin said nothing about until I ask the salesman why you couldn't see what station the radio was on. Then it was mentioned it may be broken,it was.Another trip to the Ford dealer Luckily I caught that one before signing the paperwork or I would been screwed on that.4 there was film of something all over the car when I tried to wash it for the first time and found from auto detailer that Towbin had used a type WD-40 that hides scratches on black cars. Sure enough after the detailer clean the car of the WD40 ther were scratches all over it
I must preface this review by letting you know that I despise car dealerships. No, like I really, REALLY hate buying a new car. I always feel like the salesmen are out to get you in every way possible, from telling you what you want to hear to straight up lying in an attempt to sell you things you don't want or need. I always view it as a "me against them" experience and I show up ready to do battle. As far as car buying experiences go, I'm happy to report that this was one of the easiest.Our salesperson, Trent, was as cool and calm as they come. He was super easy to deal with, seemed eager to please and make us happy, and had a relaxed, laid back personality. He took most of the stress out of the car buying experience. This was our first time buying a true luxury brand automobile, and I was very impressed. Trent was always on time for our appointments, was proactively attentive to our calls and texts, and would do his best to keep us comfortable (even offering us a slice of pizza when we were there at lunchtime and were waiting for the paperwork to be completed). He answered all of our questions correctly the first time and with authority. I will absolutely buy a car from him in the future.The dealership itself is very comfortable too, and it was always easy to find help when we needed it. We originally had planned to buy our Mercedes from the other dealership in town but after we went back and waited nearly an hour after the time of our scheduled appointment (our sales guy was "tied up" and never showed), we eventually left and came to Henderson. I'm so happy we did!The delivery experience was easy too, with our car displayed in a fancy garage bay. I noticed a few minor blemishes on the paint and Trent immediately went to get someone to come and buff them out. They even had a really nice woman (I can't remember her name!) thoroughly go over the new features of the car. It was excellent customer service.The only reason this wasn't a 5 star experience was the finance department. Nobody likes to deal with all the finance junk where they hard sell you on all sorts of extras that you don't need, but this was not the most pleasant part of the transaction. Pete was a nice guy and I actually liked him a lot, and I know it's his job to assertively push the extras on customers, but it got super unpleasant when he was really, REALLY pushing us hard on buying into the Mercedes Service Plan. Not only would he not take "no" for an answer, he eventually made us feel BAD about not buying it. I told him the fact that he was pushing it so hard made it obvious to me it wasn't a good deal for us as consumers. He tried every tactic in the book too, making us feel like we weren't adding it on because we couldn't afford it. Please. Why would we be in a Mercedes dealership in the first place?Eventually we got out of the finance department and because of that obnoxious push, we declined every other add-on. Normally he could've sold us some things but I was so disgusted that we didn't get one extra thing.So other than that, this is a great dealership and if we decide that we love Mercedes (since this is our very first one), I will definitely be back to buy future cars. Trent knows how to build loyalty, and he will be our go-to guy from now on.
This was my worse car buying experience ever. The finance guy lied to me and said the payment would be the same without a warranty. This is when I should have walked out but the sales manager came and fixed that. Then immediately after I sign the contract I realize they upped the price $1000 from $25250 to $26250 my mistake didn't catch that so I ate the money. They owed me a check for 13k for my trade which they forgot to tell me they would hold till the car was funded even though they had my title. 7 days later i get a call my green slip is ready I go in to pick it up along with my check and they don't have my check the sales mananager was very rude to me, made fun of my deal and asked me to leave. On the way home i get a call from the general manager and he says he'll hand deliver my check the next day which he failed to do. I picked my check up the next night. This place will bait and switch you I will never return there. And hope I save someone from making the same mistake I made which is doing business with Henderson Nissan.
I wouldn't let this guy touch my tricycle, he is a complete scam, he scams everyone he talks to, he has no experience in any auto repair, con artist and a thief, there is a reason no one has put in any reviews, it's because he has no business and Eveeyone he has scammed are telling everyone to stay away, do yourself a favor and go someplace else,
There are more than 700,000 auto service technicians and mechanics in the U.S. Finding the right one to repair a dent in your car door or fix an engine that won't start can be overwhelming, especially when it's an emergency. Review a few important facts about auto repair professionals and what you can do to get the best possible mechanic working on your vehicle's issues for a fair price.
Looking For Reliability
Unlike home repair services that evaluate a property, meet with homeowners and have time to prepare before their physical work begins, auto repair businesses are often asked to make fixes on the spot. If you come into a garage with a tire issue, the expectation is the mechanic will know how to correct that problem quickly.
That is why reliability is so vital when searching for a trusted auto repair shop. It may take going to several different mechanics before you find one you are truly comfortable with. Pose questions to this professional to find out what approach they will take to repair your car or what alternatives are available. Shopping around also gives you the best opportunity to find the cheapest rate or the fastest service, as some garages may be backed up with other vehicles that need repair first.
A recommended way to locate a trustworthy auto repair professional is to seek out customer reviews. Online sites offer honest opinions from real customers who have used a business. Read through this feedback to learn how a business operates and what you can expect if you were to take your vehicle there. Look for reviews about how quick maintenance was completed and if prices were fair. By learning what other people have said about a garage, you can gain a better idea if it's the right place to go when you have a car problem in need of fixing.
It can be difficult to know which automotive problems are serious enough to require expert assistance. A ripped seat cushion or broken radio don't involve safety and will not warrant enough of a problem that going into a garage is required. However, setbacks with brakes, lights and other parts that are vital to the safety of your car's driver and passengers, as well as others on the road, necessitate quick fixes. Many modern automobiles will notify drivers of an issue, in the form of a signal on the dashboard or a noise within the vehicle.
In the event of an accident, even if your vehicle does not appear to have any damage on the outside, it is generally recommended that you see a trusted auto repair professional. Internal damage may have occurred, or an important part may have been knocked out of place. Fixing these issues before driving much further can prevent further vehicle breakdowns in the future. In the case of a serious accident, a body shop can assess the problems and determine the best course of action for repairs, as well as evaluate how much they will cost.
Beyond that, regular checkups are recommended. Tires must be rotated, fluids needs to be replaced and the engine must be evaluated. After driving 25,000 miles, most auto dealers suggest having the vehicle checked out to ensure everything is running smoothly. Taking the car into the auto repair professional you trust will protect you from further problems down the road.
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. At the same time, be aware of mechanic scams that can impact your experience.
Preventing Trips To The Professional
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. By handling these types of tasks on your own, you'll gain a better understanding for how your car operates and save time and money.
Along with understanding how to fix manageable vehicle issues that may arise, taking preventative measures to avoid future problems is a valuable time saver. Many problem-solving best practices are related to the seasons. Your vehicle will be in different conditions in the winter than in the summer, meaning it requires a different type of preparation.
In the spring and summer, you want to be sure your air conditioner and cooling systems work correctly. Given the high temperatures the vehicle will be exposed to, 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.
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 your tires before winter driving, as they need to be at the proper pressure to perform well on snow and ice.
There is a common worry among many people that auto repair professionals take advantage of the general public. Because so many people are unaware of how to fix the problems in their vehicle, they are nervous of being overcharged by mechanics or worried that the improper work is being done.
While the great majority of professionals in the industry are honest, hard-working people, a few bad apples can ruin everything. You should be extra careful when first visiting a mechanic to guarantee that the price you're charged and maintenance the vehicle receives are fair.
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 are in the shop and 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. That way, 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.
By working closely with an auto repair professional and doing some of the tune-up work on your own, you will be less likely to fall for these scams. At the same time, you'll be able to drive out with a clean and healthy vehicle, thanks to the repairs made by a trained professional.
