I haven't been treated like a human being or like anyone really cared about my truck, until Mikes Auto Clinic started working on my vehicles. I will recommend them to all my friends, and I do! As a woman, I find it a difficult task to know who I can trust since I know so little about car repair. The service writer always takes time to explain to me in any amount of detail I desire what is going on with my car.

Having moved to this town I decided I would try a local mechanic next time I had a need instead of my tried and true mechanic located 25 miles away. When my car would crank, but not start, I knew I would need a tow truck, so the local option seemed a way to avoid a big tow bill. Big mistake. Mike's told me they would diagnose the car's problem for $70, then make an estimate for repairs. Their answer: The electronic distributor needed complete replacement. Estimate: $819. I called my tried and true mechanic located 25 miles away, and was told that a complete distributor replacement is very, very rare. If I could get the car to them, they would diagnose the problem and provide an estimate. I bit the bullet and paid a large tow bill, but was very glad when I got their estimate. The problem was not the distributor at all, but rather a worn-out ignition coil. Estimate for repair: $314. Cost of diagnosis: included in the repair price. The car is fixed now, with zero distributor problems. Having had this experience, it is difficult to recommend Mike's because: 1) They charged $70 for a faulty diagnosis; 2) Based upon that diagnosis, they were about to overcharge me $500; and 3) When I came to pick up the car with the second tow truck, the estimator tried to engage me in conversation about my budget, as if feeling me out to see what he might be able to get out of me and still save face. I felt this was a case of preying upon someone who was in a difficult situation (the car needing a tow truck) and who had no other option than to accept a faulty and very overpriced repair.

Had the A/C compressor blow out on my 2003 Ford Explorer. They replaced the compressor, accumulator, orifice, cleaned the a/c lines and recharged. They also replaced the serpentine drive belt (which snapped when compressor failed) and two pulleys that were worn. The A/C system now operates like new and we're very happy with their fast efficient service and their care for the customer. I would recommend them to others and will use them again.
