AccuTech on 301 Oxford gets my vote as well. Highly recommend them for their ethics, prices lower and all-round good service. Had them a number of times in the past few years and they are the best and have never let me down.

Someone recommended Sumter Tire in Wildwood to me. I took my car there to repair a leak in one tire. Went there on a Saturday without an appointment. Even though they were busy, they took a look at my car right away. Told me that my tire was fine but my leak was caused by rust on my wheel. They sanded down my wheel and resealed my tire. When I asked them what I owed them they told me there was no charge. The tire has been fine ever since.

Default Accu Tech on 301

We have been very impressed with Accu Tech on 301 near 466. We even dropped off donuts one day to thank them for the work they do.

Default Another vote for Accu tech on 301

Accu TEch was recommended to me by a Village resident and I am highly satisfied with their service and work ethics. Tim is the owner and his wife is the receptionist, they all go out of their way to be courteous, explain everything and do only repairs that are needed. I have taken my car in for oil changes, to addresss an engine light problem as well as to seek guidance about tire replacement and each time Tim and his staff listened, explained and freely answered questions. And much of it was at costs way lower than in NJ (and plenty of free advice!)

Default Re: ....honest repair shops...?

Took our auto to the new Tire Choice store near Colony. Had a real deal on an oil change and tire rotation. Common sense should tell you that something has to give...under $20 with a coupon. Anyhow, I was told that new tires were needed along with the air filter and air conditioner filters. The cost of replacing the tires would be almost $1000.00. Oh, that did include wheel balancing... My suggestion, go elsewhere unless you stop at your bank first! Ps. I found a machine screw with its washer under the car on the garage floor. Someone forgot to put it back in place!

Honest auto repair shops seems to be a recurring theme here on TOTV. You have to wonder what Tire Choice's management was thinking. Does TV really need three TC shops to sell tires, or do they plan to maximize their auto repair business? We've been using Hutson Automotive Repair, 3201 US 27\441, Fruitland Park. They're right next door to Stavros Pizza. They've been there for almost 30 years. They open at 8, and try to do all oil changes at that time to allow for regular auto repair work during the day. They're busy and they're reasonable and they don't need to find dubious work to stay in business. The owner's name is Craig Hutson and that's who you see when you bring your car in for service.

Default Good, honest....lady-friendly

I wish I could remember the name of the repair shop, but it is located just as you enter Wildwood on 301 going south. It is family owned and they are as honest as the day is long....and are extra, extra women friendly....meaning they explain things to ladies so they feel comfortable with the explanation and what repairs are needed and they keep the costs low. Good people!!! Use 'em

Default Finding trustworthy mechanics

I've always had good luck with, mechanix files sections. The misspelling here is intentional -- it is the way they spell it.

Just type in a zipcode and similar to Zagat's, voila!

Default Michael's Fruitland Park

Michaels is the best around. Very reasonable and quality work. They are in Fruitland park. Nice family run business. I would avoid all Tire Choice shops in the villages. They will try and get all kinds of things done, when your there for an oil change. i.e. front end alignment, power steering flush, change all filters, clean brakes,, the list goes on an on. Tried the new store at Colony, same old song. Something needs to be done with them. I've seen so many elderly get taken advantage of while waiting for my oil changes. It would be interesting to see how many villagers have been told they need a alignment and or AC serviced by them, while they are there for a simple oil change or rotation.
