Does your car have a spare tire? Would you buy a car that didn't come with a spare? http://ow.ly/O1qwh #TireTuesday #TireTalk
The spare tire has been squeezed out of many new vehicles, thanks to run-flat tires, inflator kits, efforts to reduce vehicle weight and a lack of storage space -- especially in hybrids and electric vehicles. The problem is many drivers don't know their spare isn't there

I got a groupon for an oil change, tire rotation and 64 point inspection for $20 (retail was around $90). It took about an hour and a half. After they were done, they took me back and showed me what failed on the 64-point inspection very matter-of-factly, which was very nice. I did not feel pressured to get these things done immediately, they just told me what they recommended getting done eventually. The only thing I didn't like was that they charged me tax for the retail value of the groupon. It only ended up being $5 dollars, so not a big deal. Also, there was another charge because I own a Lexus (make sure to read the fine-print). Overall, I still got an oil change, tire rotation and 64-point inspection for $40, which I think is a good deal.

I recently had brakes fixed. Rotors grined and new pads. a few weeks later, they were squeaking. went back, they heated them and sanded them. went away but then came back vibrating this time. finallly, they just took them off and put on brand new rotors/pads free of charge. both times I went back they were very nice and didnt argue at all. No issues and now they work fine. I will def be back for other work on the car.

I brought my car to Brake o Rama in Ridgewood, NJ to get a simple oil change. The gentleman there told me that I needed to fix a number of things to my car. I thought that was a bit fishy, because one of the things he told me was that I needed to fix a part that I had just switched out a few months before, and that part was supposed to last for another tens of thousands of miles. He also told me the problems were serious and that I should definitely bring the car by for repairs next week or within the month at the very latest. The very next day, the check engine light went on in my car. I brought my car to diagnose the "check engine" light and for an overall diagnostic to two different repair shops. None of the problems mentioned by the Brake-o-rama guy was necessary. However, I was told that someone had messed with the wires in the car. Just finding the problem has already cost me $472, not including fixing the problem. BEWARE - they will try to rob you with a smile.

brake o rama robbed me of over $2,000. DONT GO HERE. I went in for an estimate, and they told me I couldn't drive the car away because it was too hazardous, and I would probably die in transit. I knew i was getting scammed, but would you take that risk? A few months later I went to a new mechanic for tires. he confirmed that this owner was known for scaring customers. Never again. do yourself a favor and don't trust these people.

I was sceptical... but ended up very pleased. My check oil light was on so I took the discount flyer and went in for an oil change. They did a diagnostic and found a few gauges, etc needed replacement. Also the flyer was for a standard car and mine needed two more quarts. Expected to spend $20 to $50 but the estimate was for $210... ouch. They had to get a part in so when I picked up my car in the mean time black smoke started billowing out the exhaust so I took it back. Next day explained this was a brand new problem. In the back of my mind I was worried they messed something up and were going to charge me more to fix it. To my pleasant surprise they not only fixed all the problems (both old and new) but they also had the car inspected when out for the test drive and also took over $50 off the estimate when they could repair one of the gauges instead of getting a new one. Still spent about $150 but was worth it. Nice job guys.
