There are several other routine services that are considered maintenance, such as tire rotations and the replacement of timing belts, serpentine belts, and fluid hoses. When these parts wear they put additional stress on other parts. The replacement requirements of these items vary from car model to car model, so part of our service is to advise you on the upcoming maintenance that you will need to keep on schedule for your car. Proper maintenance prevents excessive wear and breakdowns.

Repair is much more complicated than it sounds. Accurately determining which component has failed is referred to as “diagnosis” or “testing” Because many parts of a car are now responsive to computer command and adjustment, the art of diagnosis is to perform a rigorous testing regimen which determines which part actually caused the problem. Often a computer will perform adjustments that hide the failing part until it is completely broken. Without the diagnostician, a technician can only make an educated guess. The diagnostician is usually the most seasoned expert in the shop.
Once the failed part is determined, proper procedures are followed to ensure that the repair is made to the same quality as when the car was built. We use the highest quality parts and adhere strictly to professional standards so that our work can be relied upon. We provide one of the longest repair warranties in the business, which includes both parts and labor.
