Thank you Javier for helping me get into the 2007 dodge nitro. your a great guy to deal with, thanks so much....
Jason V was Great!!! Love My Truck!! 2500 HD 4x4 off road tires!! ready to get this thing in the mud!!!
Thank you Javier for helping me out with my 2011 toyota corolla , i love my car and i will tell all my friends about you and texas best.
BEST CAR BUYING EXPERIENCE EVER!! I worked with Jason V; he was HONEST, Friendly, and helpful! He had another person on the way for tyhe same vehicle, and he called to tell them its sold because of how far they were driving! He didn't think we could hear him; but the other person offered more money; so i assume he makes more & he tol;d him, "what if I did that to you? I gave you the chance to leave a deposit". Thats the kind of guy I want to buy from! ASK FOR Jason V; tell him Joey Zee sent Ya!
Jason was Great, Helpful and easy to deal with.Very Friendly and professional! I suggest everyone see him
would like to say thank you to all the staff at Texas best , everyone is very friendly , special thanks to my sales guy Javier made it very easy for me to buy my first car. thank you
Once again, Javier great job for the 3rd time, I called him told him i needed to get in and out , once i arrived my ford taurus was ready, my paper work was ready , SIGN AND DRIVE. that simple Thank you Javier V
Would give 10 stars if I could! Jason V and the entire staff, were not only professional and friendly, but they were honest and straight forward. The store had only 2 salesmen working that day; while I was there, 3 other groups of people also purchased vehicles and I think one or two more came in as I was leaving. NOT ONCE did i feel like I was "put on the back burner" or that I was forgotten about either. Thank you very much Jason and the entire team at Texas Best Pre-Owned
Jason V was great and went above and beyond! Very happy with the truck, at no point did it feel like I was being “sold”. They really are the BEST, in 6 months I’ll be back to get my down payment transferred to the next one! After my mother got her second vehicle, she was also happy, but unsure that by returning the vehicle She would have a $1,500 credit. Her and I got one the same day, not only do they have great inventory, inc warranties and treat customers like people not like you have bad credit and they don’t need like most places that offer in house financing. They KEEP THEIR WORD AND HAVE INTEGRIDY! And report to credit. My Mom’s score went up 120 points after 10 months! Tell them I sent you!
once again Javier took very good care of me and my son with our second purchase, we love our new Chevrolet equinox. My youngest son turns 18 soon and i will be back for car number 3
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.
