    Redling repair in gilbert, ask for kim he does an amazing job with no bs. Very fair and honest work, also Denny's repair on east lincoln way is solid. Hope this helps

    Second that one a thousand times over...I can't believe the crap they pulled on us. They are a total joke of a business



    Im just glad I have Homan as my bodyguard, Eustachy joked. If I ever make it real big and get to drive a limo everyday, hell be driving it. I thought he came off the bench like somebody was stealing his cow or something.

    Auto Truck and Repair Center

    Auto Truck Repair Center – Ames, Iowa

    My wifes car was having issues starting and they ran the diagnostic (cheaper than most places in ames) and were able to fix the problem without charging me anything extra. only paid about $100 for the whole thing ($60ish for the diagnostic and $30 something for the tow to their shop). very reasonable people and wont try and make you pay for stuff you dont need. ive also heard good things about them from other people as well

    I am a big fan of midas. they offer a nice payment plan do a good job, and you get your car back fast. Little bit on the expensive side but worth it!

    Not sure what type of car you have but this guy knows his stuff, and more importantly he is honest. I have an Audi that I had him work on and he always did great work.
