Please pick up your fixed car promptly so we can pay parts&labor promptly. If not, you will be charged $25/day after being notified. This pain is to make you learn the lesson because we are charged 30% fee by banks if we don't pay on time. Many months, our income/revenue is not even enough to cover parts!

We are the cheapest with the best quality in town! Please don't bargain with us. Once you agree to fix car here, please pay the fee we ask for, otherwise, just pay the diagnose and shop somewhere else. Note, we don't price by the time the job takes, so please don't argue with us on what the charge should be based on your own observation on how fast or how easy a job is. (People rarely bargain or argue prices in America, the fees we ask for don't include margin to bargain) But you are welcome to send us feedbacks after you pay so managers can review and improve your experience here.

We fix everything and anything, just call the mechanic at 919-697-2641 directly to find out, if you can't speak English, you can call 704-293-0756 to translate your Mandarin to English for the mechanic.

Please deal with your insurance company yourself with the invoice/receipt that you get from us after you fix your wreckage here. We don't deal with anybody/entity other than you. We are also cheaper than shops who deal with insurances on your behalf. Please deal with your insurances yourselves so you learn how your insurance works.

We warranty our work for 6 months if the parts are purchased through us. If you bring your own parts or you insist on using parts against our advice, then no warranty.
We don't warranty used parts even if the parts are purchased through us. Used parts go bad more often, we can't afford to warranty used parts. If you want warranty, then go for the new parts that we recommend.

Usually part suppliers offer free deliveries, but occasionally, they don't deliver parts, please pick up the parts yourself to avoid delays and additional charges.

    This check brings tire pressure, engine oil, transmission oil, brake fluid oil, anti-freeze liquid, windshield wiper fluid to optimal levels. If we notice any problems in this check, please pay those fixes separately.
  • Diagnose: diagnose starts at $50. Diagnose is the brain of a repair, "no correct diagnose, no correct repairs". Please pay our time spent on your car regardless we find the problem or not. Sometimes, a check engine light can take days to diagnose, if after $50 or 30 minutes diagnose, we feel that the problem is too complex and it may cost you well over $100 to diagnose, we will stop at $50 and let you choose: 1, lose $50 and try somebody else, 2. stick with us without knowing how many more hours that you have to pay to figure out or not figure out the problem. Just like anything else in life, we have our limits, we want to be honest upfront before it hurts both of us. (When a person is sick and go to see a doctor, the doctor always charges a big fee regardless his diagnose is good, bad or unknown. We can't afford to work on your car for free while paying huge overheads like rent and utilities.) We hope you respect our pricing as mentioned above, we don't have time bargaining and bickering with you. Please pay cash to avoid unncessary headaches.
