This place rocks! — Joel M.
This place rocks! What a great find! (on Yelp). Fast, efficient, knowledgable, friendly, professional and priced right...what more could you ask for? Wouldn't go anywhere else. Now my go-to auto place. Thanks Alex. You make everything so easy. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
All of the guys there are friendly and very helpful. — Paris S.
Well Alex has handled my car needs for the last two years and my car is still running and I'm still alive so really you couldn't ask for more. All of the guys there are friendly and very helpful. They are also very patient which I appreciate because I have no idea what's going on when he comes to my car
I love fast cars... and to go too fast in them. — Laura B.
Alex did a fantastic job on my 99' Corolla - super prices, and a great, honest mechanic. Nothing to complain about here! Glad to know I still have some life in my old car before she goes to Toyota Heaven. 😉 We'll definitely be returning here next time we need another inspection/maintenance!
What is Preventative Maintenance?
Preventative maintenance is regularly scheduled maintenance of your vehicle that is mandated by the factory that built it. Which helps less repairs occur and keep your car in better working condition.
How should I prepare my car for a road trip?
Check the oil, coolant and lights. Visually check the belts and all hoses. Top off all fluids then inspect the battery to make sure it’s in good working condition.
Why do my brakes squeak?
Brakes can squeak for a variety of reasons, but continuous squeals and grinding sounds may mean it’s time for new brake pads and shoes. Work brakes can mean longer stopping distances and difficulty stopping in emergency situations. Rotors and drums that are too thin may even become over-stressed and break. Remember, if you notice any of these symptoms it’s a good idea to get your brakes checked.
How often should I change my oil?
The additive in the oil starts to break down as soon as it heats up to high temperatures. The engine in your vehicle will reach over 200 degrees almost every time you drive it. History has proven that the 3,000 mile mark is a good interval to have your engine oil replaced.
