So I went to The Oil Exchange for an oil change, and I asked if they could top of my power steering fluid because it went out the other day. Apparently, though, the reason my power steering went out is because my serpentine belt was shot to hell. I also know I probably need new break pads because of the noise.

I'm hesitant to just go to the first place that the Oil Exchange guy recommended (A.J's Tire and Auto) because that recommendation probably just came from a business arrangement they have. I haven't lived in Boone long and this is the first time I've needed my car repaired here. Does anyone have suggestions on an affordable and reputable mechanic?

Time isn't really of the essence because I take the AppalCart to work. I know from the experience of trying to get an inspection a few months ago that some places require you to make appointments well in advance.

Kelly Bros, beside Lowes Foods is pretty reputable.
So is Idol's Tire.
Clark Tire is great if you have the cash.
Ward's Automotive behind skateworld is the best because their prices are good, but you may have a longer wait to get your vehicle back.

Castle Auto on 194 has done very good work for me at reasonable prices. Fast and done right first time.

I would also reccomend custom muffler. they have several very good mechanics. I know one of them has been a mechanic for over 20 years. They also have a good turnaround time.

Don't go to modern, they are dirty, lying, scumbags. Also their techs have little or no training.
