Your car will break down. Your cousin's brother may have "a guy" who can fix it for cheap. It will still break down again. Your friends' boyfriend also has " a guy". This guy charges half of what your estimate is. Car repairs are expensive. Period. Does your cousin's brother pay for your rental because your car repair is proving problematic? No? Well, Auto Aid did that for me. I have an older vehicle and keep her running great. I've been bringing her here for a couple of years now. They take care of me, my car, and now my husband's (the sceptic) car. I am really happy with the level of service, plus I use the rewards system they have. Repeat business saves me some dough. Just an FYI~They charge a pretty hefty pricetag to diagnose your cars' problem. That diagnostic doesn't come off the bill or get incorporated in the repair cost. This is usually where your cousin's bothers guy may look like the better deal. Or your roommate knows exactly what's wrong with your car and "did they check the flubberbutter or krimmynooks"?? yeah, yeah. Everybody's an expert.I'll trust the guys at AutoAid. David and Per are wonderful and at this point, I feel they know my car better than anyone. I'll pay to have it done right. Efficiently, quickly and with the personal service they provide.
