If you’re not a car care expert yourself, it can be hard to ignore that little voice inside your head that can’t help but wonder if you’re about to get ripped off every time you pull into a repair shop. A survey conducted by the Consumer Reports National Research Center found that about 50 percent of people completely trust their local shop to fix their cars. That means that half of the respondents don’t trust the people who repair their cars! If you don’t know a lot about cars, you can at least know the right questions to ask and things to look for that can help you feel better about your decision.

Up-to-date equipment. Today’s vehicles are primarily computer controlled and utilize sophisticated technology to operate properly. The use of this technology plays an important role in the diagnosis of your vehicle’s performance.

We can pinpoint your vehicle’s failure and tell you exactly what is needed to fix it so you can be “road ready” in no time.
Watch for warranties. Consumer advocacy sites recommend warranties on parts and labor for at least three months or 4,000 miles. Your local Milex cares about providing quality work and service. That is why we offer a warranty that meets or even exceeds these recommendations.
