This is What We Preach

We always preach that preventative maintenance saves you money, gives you peace of mind, and lets you enjoy your vehicle for years

Preventative Maintenance

We believe that cars are built better today than ever and that they can last for 200,000 miles or more without sacrificing reliability, performance, or comfort. The key to this is preventive maintenance.

In addition to changing your oil on a regular basis, there are several other maintenance items that will help your vehicle last for a long time. We can help you understand and plan for the maintenance items that are needed to keep your car on the road for a long time, and avoid those car payments!

Saving Money

The endless cycle of car payments that may people are on costs far more than many realize. You can save money on the overall cost of driving your car (payments, repairs, insurance) by taking care of it and keeping it running properly for as long as possible. The longer you keep your car, and keep it running properly, the more money you save!

Peace of mind & long term enjoyment

When you regularly maintain your vehicle, you worry far less that something might go wrong and are less hesitant about heading out on a road trip. And keeping a well-maintained vehicle means you’ll be far more content with it.

Pre Purchase Inspections
