Does that work really need to be done?
When our technicians make recommendations for auto repairs, your first instinct may be that someone’s trying to rip you off, but our technicians are trained to assess each vehicle’s condition to ensure that you don’t run into costly repairs later on down the road that could end up costing you thousands.
Why should I change my engine oil and filter?
You should change your engine oil and filter every 3 months or every 3,000 miles. Over time, engine oil loses lubrication and it collects acids and other byproducts. Substances like these are enemies of your vehicle’s bearings, seals, gaskets, and more.
Why should I have my belts and hoses replaced?
Typically, belts and hoses won’t need replaced until at least 60,000 miles. However, replacing worn belts reduces your risk of breakdowns and damaging other components of your vehicle.
Can I drop my car off earlier or later, outside business hours?
You sure can! We have a secure drop box for keys at both of our locations, River Drive and Eastern Ave in Davenport.
