Warranty service - dealer or aftermarket

If your car is under warranty with the dealership or an aftermarket warranty program, we especially encourage you to come in: often, we can save you money by identifying expensive problems that may not be otherwise noticeable before your warranty expires. With a dealership warranty the problems we find will have to go to the dealer for repair, but with one or two less steps for you.

Aftermarket warranty?
No problem we can handle the repairs for you. We go to bat for you and are your middleman between your car and the warranty company. We make a point of identifying and listing all items that need to be repaired each time your vehicle is serviced.

Pre-Purchase Inspections
Are you planning to buy a pre-owned Mercedes, Toyota/Lexus, Honda/Acura, Nissan/Infiniti, VW or any other foreign car?

We offer prompt and convenient scheduling of pre-purchase inspections - this simple step can mean the difference between thousands of dollars in unnecessary bills and months of aggravation, and the peace of mind that comes from knowing you got a good deal on a reliable vehicle.

 

When you have a car in mind, call our Service Desk and we'll get you in right away.
