A leading cause of breakdowns is lack of maintenance. Several vehicles come in each week with expensive problems that might have been prevented.
With all the things folks have to remember, vehicle maintenance simply gets overlooked, with expensive consequences.
Our General Inspection can help prevent break downs.
We know it's hard to know who to believe. Some shops use free inspections to try to sell every sort of "wallet flush" imaginable. Manufacturers say, no maintenance is fine (just buy a new car.) Finding reliable, honest advise has always been tough.
Our Automotive General Inspection is designed precisely for this purpose. We advise bringing your vehicle in at least once a year. We can review all maintenance for you, based on what the vehicle needs. Not just visual inspections, but testing.
We test coolant for pH and specific gravity to make sure your cooling system is in good shape. Did you know that there can be electricity in the cooling system? It's called electrolysis, and can cause damage to engine components crating cooling system leaks. It can also cause drivability issues.We can also test the Air Conditioning and heating system for efficiency and let you know which filter or fluid needs replacement.
We can even scan your vehicle’s computer system for "pending" codes and things that are nearing their tolerance levels. We will even check the air in your spare tire. Like all our services, you are only billed for the time we spend on your vehicle, usually about an hour. Need reliable transportation? Come on in for a general inspection at least once A Year.
