We are preventive maintenance specialists:
The best way to minimize more serious breakdowns and the higher costs associated with automotive repair is by doing routine preventive maintenance.
When I (John Whalen) first started as a mechanic I worked on tractor trailers and heavy equipment. The owners of this equipment understood that long vehicle life saved money and that preventive maintenance was the way to long vehicle life. This lesson applies to cars and light trucks as well.
Intelligently-spent preventive maintenance dollars can add years to the life of your car or truck.
Preventive maintenance is simply what your vehicle needs to keep it running well for the longest possible time with the least cost. Whether you have a car, SUV or truck we provide all maintenance services it will ever need.
