Use A Preventive Maintenance Schedule

Modern automobiles are sophisticated yet highly reliable machines when properly maintained and serviced. You

can avoid some of the pitfalls of car ownership -- and some expensive repairs -- by sticking to a preventive maintenance schedule. Do-it-yourself maintenance can't replace your vehicle's recommended service, and some jobs are best left to professionals unless your skills are advanced.

 

 

Had a bad experience?

 

 We’ve seen that many people don’t invest the time and small sums necessary to get the most from their vehicles. Often, its because they’ve felt abused by some shop and are afraid or skeptical about other shops.  We appreciate the confidence of customers that entrust their vehicles to us for service and work hard to keep you coming back. We believe that the quality of our work is second to none. Every vehicle is serviced by responsible professionals using the right tools and top quality parts and materials.

 

Our policy is to encourage customers to follow the maintenance recommendations established by each vehicle’s manufacturer. Our experience over the years has shown that this is the best way to maintain the value and reliability of your vehicle while maximizing your pleasure from its use.  You will never be pressured into buying products or services you do not want or do not need.
