Today, our Meridian car shop is ready to set the record straight. Here are three auto repair myths, busted by our automotive experts.

1. Every automotive shop wants to rip off customers

Mechanics influence data and embellish symptoms as part of their desire to rip customers off.

The Truth:

The automotive repair industry is built on customer relationships.

  • We are a faith-based company operating by the Golden Rule
  • Most auto repair businesses are full of honest and hardworking individuals
  • Owners know that taking advantage of a customer damages their reputation and harms them in the long run
  • We are problem-solvers only looking to help out our customers

Our mission statement is simple: We seek to glorify God by providing ethical and excellent automotive repair service for our customers.

2. Only the dealership can perform certain car repairs

The Myth:

Luxury and foreign cars need to be handled by the dealership, and the dealership offers discounts other shops can’t (or won’t).

The Truth:

3. Only the dealerships employ the best auto mechanics

The Myth:

At a dealership, customers pay more to receive the best service possible.

The Truth:

Auto repair technicians, just like any professionals in any industry, range in skill and experience.

  • Dealerships do not have exclusive rights to the best automotive experts
  • Our technicians provide exceptional customer service every time
  • We first ask questions to determine your specific needs and circumstances
