Hi there. New to this forum. I'm looking for a good place in the Phoenix area to take my Nissan for service. Until now, I've just used the dealer, but the car is about 10 years old now and I don't think I can afford the dealer anymore. It seems like everything's going wrong at once this week and the prices the dealer quoted about gave me a heart attack.

Anyway, so I need a bit of work done and am wondering if someone out there knows of a good shop or two to recommend. I live in Mesa, so I'm hoping to find something closer to me, but if I have to go miles out of my way for less heart attack-inducing prices, so be it. :)

Thanks in advance!

What type of things did the dealership say needed to be done? What type of work are you looking to be done?

Thanks for replying. :)

What I know needs to be done for sure is to fix a power steering leak. What they told me I additionally should get done is to have a CV boot replaced and have the motor mounts replaced.

They're quoting over $200 for the power steering hose replacement, close to $300 for the CV boot replacement and over $500 for the motor mounts. There's NO way I'm paying that, especially when I have my doubts about whether or not the CV boot and motor mounts really need to be done.

Oh, and they wanted to charge over $200 to replace the positive terminal battery cable, said the cable itself cost $133. I do need to do that for sure. I called BAP and they've got one for $6, so I'll do that myself, but the rest I won't be able to do myself, wouldn't even know where to start.....

If you've got any recommendations for shops, I'd love to hear them. Thanks!
