Independent Auto Repair Shop Committed to Longer-Lasting Cars

As an independent auto repair shop, we have our customers in mind.  One very important thing to our customers is to make their cars last longer.  We accomplish this goal so much better than most dealerships.  We do this through better and more proper maintenance for your vehicles.

Conversely, dealerships have a little conflict going on.  On one hand, they want to provide maintenance to keep the car running longer, but they do not want you to spend too much on maintenance because that looks bad for the car brands they sell.  Additionally, they really want to sell you another car.

We know cars need more maintenance than what the manufacturers suggest in the manual.  We know through experience and our continual education as automotive professionals they need a little more than this.  This is why we stay on top of the maintenance for your vehicles.  We want you to trade your car in when you want, not when the car has broken down and the expense of repair forces you to buy another.
