Frequently Asked Questions about Auto Repair
When should you just buy a new vehicle versus fix it?
There is a lot to consider when deciding if you should buy a new vehicle or repair your older one. Always remember regardless if you have a new vehicle or old vehicle you’ll still have maintenance that needs to be done and things can still break on your newer vehicle. This is a decision that is best made after looking at all the factors involved: age of your current vehicle, how much do you invest in repairs each month, insurance costs, how much is a payment going to cost, reliability of vehicle and so many other things should be evaluated when deciding what to do with your current vehicle.
When should you get a second opinion on a vehicle repair?
You should always go to a reputable repair facility for all your vehicle repairs. A parts store is not considered a repair facility, they can only give you what people usually buy from them for certain problems. Keep in mind, they can’t tell you if it will fix your problem or not. You should always go with your gut and ask several questions about the recommended repair, if you don’t feel comfortable with the explanations your given we recommend getting a second opinion. Any well rounded and experienced Mechanic should be able to fully explain why a repair is recommended and show you what and why a repair is recommended.
What is an ASE certification?
ASE certifications are certifications that are issued to Mechanics from the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence. These certifications are given to mechanics who have completed automotive repair training and pass tests associated with their training to verify they know how to work on specific systems.
Do you fix car interiors?
We do not repair interiors of vehicle but we are happy to help refer a few reputable business in the area that will take great care of your vehicle.
What equipment do you use to properly diagnose a repair?
In order to properly diagnose a repair it’s important to remember there’s no one piece of equipment that will give you the answer to what needs to be replaced. Scanners and lab scopes and other tools are there to help test parts on your vehicle not necessarily tell you what part needs to be replaced. This is why it’s so important to have your vehicle diagnosed by a professional and certified technician. Our Technicians are trained to trouble shoot the problems you may be having to properly diagnose your vehicle. Equipment and tools are only useful to a trained Technician who knows how to properly use them and read them. Always remember if you have a check engine light a scanner may give you a code reading but that one code only leads you to the system that is failing. A system can have several parts, now we have to determine through further testing what part is actually causing the problem.
How long does it take for a typical auto repair?
When it comes to vehicles repairs it’s hard to give a time stamp on how long a repair may take. Every vehicle is different and it truly depends on what repairs you may need and the concerns you may have regarding your vehicle. Once your vehicle is at the shop and we can document your concerns, and look over your vehicle we will contact you and let you know how long the repairs will take and the price as well. We are adamant about our communication with our customers and we’ll always do our very best to update you about time frames as we work with you on your vehicle.
