Car Care

Taking care of your car means more than oil changes and emergency repairs. Preventive auto maintenance is about prolonging the life of your vehicle and avoiding those unexpected and expensive repairs. Save some money and avoid the emergency repair hassle with our service tips and gas saving tips.

Auto Links and Resources

We’ve put together a list of links and resources to help you on any stage of the car ownership, whether you need tips for taking the best care of your new ride or are ready to sell or trade in your old vehicle.

Auto Systems Guide

This is a collection of video and presentations designed to help you better understand how your car operates. You will learn the different systems installed in your vehicle and how they interact to deliver the driving experience you enjoy.

Business Links

Over the years, we’ve worked to some extent with numerous local businesses, which we have conveniently listed for you in case you are looking for a specific service provider outside of the automotive world.

Forms and Checklists

If you feel like doing some “homework” before your appointment, you can print and fill out our symptoms checklists to help our mechanics find the problem faster. They may also help you better explain the problems with your car and reduce the risk of forgetting important details.

As always, feel free to contact us directly with any questions about car maintenance or repairs.
