He's friendly and he's on time. He did a good clean job as far as other things. I'd definitely go back again. I just live in a different state now. Otherwise, he'd be my regular mechanic.

Cory was awesome. He is very easy to work with and very honest. If he feels somebody else can handle a problem better than he can, he will recommend that. I am very satisfied with the service there.

Message From the Shop
Independence Auto offers TOP-NOTCH service, with very affordable pricing. I have been in the business for over 20 years. Dealer trained on Toyota/Lexus, Audi/Volks, and Mitsubishi. Extensive electronics training background through NEI and Dunwoody helps ease some of today's complicated auto problems. I have a technician on staff with over 25 years experience including 19 years Mazda Dealer experience. Between the two of us we can diagnosis and repair all makes, give you a fair price, and get it done right. I started in the business years ago, pumping gas, fixing tires etc. at a Full-Service Station. I learned the value of customer service, and common courtesy. You will always receive both when you have your vehicles serviced with me. I look forward to meeting you. Cory Larson/Owner Independence Auto Not Open Weekends.

Questions Answered by Ray's Independence Auto
Is The O Ring Typically Replaced When Replacing The Timing Chain Tensioner
on 2007 Toyota Corolla
Not necessarily, it has probably gone bad since the repair if you had it done over a year ago and the leak has appeared within the last 6 weeks.
How Many Foot Lbs Of Torque Is Recommended For Oil Pan on 2008 Chevrolet Malibu
Oil Pan to block bolts 18ft lbs
Oil pan to transaxle bolts 55ft lbs
There is a pattern you should follow as well, you can find it in any manual.
Blind Spot Module Bad On One Side Need Replacement. on 2012 Chrysler Town & Country
If there is a dramatic price difference there is usually a reason. Double check part numbers, if they happen to be the same then you can, but most likely not.
Can I Use A V4 Fuel Pump In My V6 Grand Am on 2005 Pontiac Grand Am
I agree with the previous answer from 1clubinside.

Starting Sequence If I Hesitate For 1 Second, Everything Is Ok on 2001 Volvo S80
The symptoms are definitely not normal I would check your ground at the battery and any other grounds that are easily visible for corrosion to make sure your PCM is grounded correctly is possible for Signal voltage to your sensors not being grounded properly good cause weird symptoms
Why Is My 1998 Jeep Cherokees Left Front Wheel Bouncing When I Go Over 60mph? on 1998 Jeep Cherokee
I would definitely recommend replacing the tires first if you still have the same condition after tire replacement we would want to look into this suspension most likely a tire issue though
Inner Driver Door Latch Cable on 2003 Ford Expedition
I'm not sure exactly what you're asking usually the door latches operated by a rod. The window regulator does have a cable that operates the window up and down but usually if that cable breaks its non serviceable in you have to replace the window regulator. Either way it's not usually necessary to remove the lock but you will need to remove the interior panel to access everything
My Check Engine Light Stays On And The Engine Sounds Rough on 2003 Toyota Highlander
You can turn the check engine light off by unplugging your battery for 1 - 5 minutes should clear the computer to clear the code. However if there is a problem that's triggering the check engine light it will just come right back. The check engine light Illuminating is telling you you have a problem with one or more of the circuits in the car. The most like will lead you in the direction what is wrong with the car causing it to run rough. I would bring it into a reputable mechanic for a diagnosis
