SERVICES

We are your one stop shop helping you with everything from oil changes to factory maintenance.
We can handle problems on both foreign and domestic vehicles.

FACTORY MAINTENANCE

The manufacturer of your vehicle requires you to perform scheduled maintenance in order to maintain your vehicle’s warranty. We perform all of your factory maintenace schedules: your 15,000, 30,000 and 60,000 mile services.

BRAKE INSPECTIONS

You should have your brake pads checked periodically for wear to avoid more expensive repairs. When you bring your vehicle in for other maintenance work, we can check them out for you and let you know how much wear is left.

OIL CHANGE

Our oil change service includes an oil change, filter and full inspection of all maintenance items on your car or light truck. We also give you an honest evaluation of your auto’s reliability and condition!

TIRE ROTATION

Tires can take a beating on California roads. Between the heat and rough roadway material, tire tread can wear down rather quickly. Rotate tires so that they wear more evenly.

CHECK ENGINE LIGHTS

When your “Check Engine Light” indicator lights upon your instrument panel, it’s telling you that the vehicle has a potentially serious problem. The vehicle should be looked at to determine if there is something seriously wrong.

FULL TUNE-UPS

Regular engine tune-ups bring power and efficiency back to your car. We visually inspect all of your engine components and install new parts (including spark plugs and fuel filters) as needed.
