Car Problems? Fix-It here!

Many students, my daughters included, bring cars to UF.  They like the freedom of being able to go to the store, drive home, run errands and not have to rely on public transportation. Honestly, between their parking tickets, dings, scratches and dents, I am not a big fan but I do understand their perspective. But… car problems. It is why, after seeing new dents every time my daughter came home from school, that I no longer repair the dents. Oil changes, tire balance, and rotation, fixing something important that isn’t working is another story. I have bought tires for my daughter’s car at Walmart Auto Center after researching the type of tires she needed but for scheduled maintenance, I do have her take her car to the dealership. They are probably a little pricier than taking it to a specific auto shop but they do send us coupons.

My daughter does have a roadside service plan. It lets me breathe easier at night. We recommend having Roadside assistance with either AAA or another reputable company. Check with your auto insurance company as you may have roadside assistance or be able to add it on.

Here is a list of places to go for tires, oil changes and  auto repairs (dents, windshield repair)
