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.
Great company to deal with! very happy with services!Repairs were done in a timely professional manner.
They are theives. I purchased a car from the in 4/4/2013. And from that time unti 8/7/2013 I had 13 repairs done on my vehicle. The the office manager insulted me and my father by calling us names and more. Then I took my car in for repairs and all they could say was, well you did purchase a used vehicle, then whe I asked for my money back alll they did was laugh. Would not recommend this dealer to anyone, yes they give great deala, but after they have your money they say #$%$, I GOTTCHA. | Edit |
Car Thieves! & scam artist. Stay awayyyy from this place, they gave me hell from the time I got one car to the next. Was told I was approved for anything on the lot when I picked out the car I wanted I was later told the car was going to be sold (after getting insurance for the car) later picked out a 300 had the car for not even two weeks THE HORN WOULD NOT STOP HONKING lately would not stop (embarrassing right??) called Dale left messages wasn’t until the next 3 day I was told to take the car to the shop that I had to pay for they got the honking to stop only for it to start up againnnnn the next morning at 6am. Finally got my father to go with me to the dealership, Dale was so shock up he then told me I could get any car on the lot again.. even the car I wanted from start that was being sold. Once I picked up the car the following morning he went up on price of payments.. okay whatever I needed a car. After years of paying on the car 2014-until now) numerous problems was told my warranty covered mostly everything to get to the car shop having to pay outta pocket. The car’s engine would shut off in the middle of driving. Later found out the car was on the re-call list none of those guys notified me seeing as they get all the paperwork for the car. Had that happen a total of 8 times. All together a total of 5 recalls on the car. Asked if I could trade the car in because it was not safe for me or my daughter I was told I had to have $1500 more dollars in order to trade in. Why do that, when I didn’t even pay that much to begin with?? Even asked for refinance my car bunch of bs stories from dale. Staff not communicating, just confusion from a To z. Too much for piece of crap car. I’ll gladly take my hard earned money elsewhere for a brand new car. Staff sucks!!

I like the business they do. They help people get on their feet. Thank you
This place is awful. I bought a car and they could not have done a full certified inspection. I had the car just over 2 months and it broke down. $3900 in repairs and not covered by the warranty. It broke down a Monday late and had it towed to a shop - which is what the warranty company told me to do. After looking into it and tearing it apart - the head gasket was shot and they tried to say another part caused it to go so therefore nothing was covered. IF they did a full inspection and full oil change in this car when I bought it, they would have seen this. The head gasket is not going to go in just over 2 months time with no other issues. And they told me I should have brought it to them first and they would have said something else happened so it was covered - so lie about it and it would be fixed - but I am sure it wouldn't be fixed correctly. LOL What a joke they were extremely rude about the whole situation too. I am a single mom that has credit issues and had to go where I could to get a car and then this happens. No family support, I work two jobs and have been without a car for a couple of weeks. They can't even offer a loaner or anything to help ease the situation. Just doing what they can to sell a car and a warranty and then nothing is covered or they will lie about it to get it covered but probably wouldn't be fixed right in the first place. I should have known though - I brought my car home and two days later they called me and said they gave me the wrong car!! They had two of the exact same cars - same color and everything. And wanted me to come and trade it for the one that I signed for!!! LMAO No I said they would have to come to my work and change cars out and there better be gas in it - oh they put a quarter tank of gas in it and it was ridiculous.
Very friendly people, very honest, would highly recommend. If you need a vehicle call them and they will help you out.
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.
