When you've got enough scratch to afford a new ride, having a car is easy. If your motorvator coughs, sputters, quits or even smells funny within six years or 60,000 miles (whichever comes first) just take that metal-flake dream machine back to the dealership and get it fixed — in and out, no muss, no fuss, no credit card required. For the rest of us who have cruised out from under the umbrella of the factory warranty, though, car trouble can be a real pain in the tailpipe. Where do you take it? How much will it cost? Which shop will give you a deal as supple as fine Corinthian leather, and who will give you the ungreased driveshaft?

Angles in the Attic is gone, and one of our favorites, the Salvation Army warehouse store, fell victim to mold and roof travails. But Little Rock is still full of deals for the savvy and the persistent.
