  • Competitive price and attention to detail. I was pleasantly surprised that they hand washed my car and put a mint on my dash after the oil change.
    -Mark P.
  • I took my Subaru in for an oil change. Great service - and they washed/cleaned the windshield and vacuumed it for me!!! Thanks!
    -Chuck D.
  • Shock, struts, and suspension work. Bill and Nick were very thorough and made certain the work was all done to perfection.
    -John C.
  • Thank you for getting my car in! As usual, you all are fantastic. No complaints here.
    -Ronald N.
  • The friendly manner, the informed answers to my questions, the larger waiting area, the coffee availability, and the efficiency with which my vehicle was serviced made for a very pleasant experience.
    -Joyce H.
  • I depend on Vehicle Repair Center to keep my Saturn running great. With over 200K on it now, I'm not worried about replacing it (maybe passing it on to one of my grandchildren.) Love that car wash at every service, too - including a nice clean windshield!
    -Jane P.
  • You always make it very easy to make sure that my car is serviced at the appropriate time. Getting the reminder in the mail is a huge help. Whenever I come in for service I am greeted with a warm welcome and you are always ready to answer any questions I might have. Washing my car and leaving it spotless is just an added bonus that I have not seen anywhere else. Above all, the quality of service is excellent and I would recommend anyone to bring their car to your shop for service.
    -Paul T.
  • I was greeted right away when I entered the office and was taken exactly on time at the time of my appointment. I was in for a oil treatment and was told about other things that needed to be done. I was ok with that and asked if they could do it while I was there and they said they could. I was very satisfied with the work that was done on my car.
    -Anna C.

PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

Car Care Aware

Courtesy of the Automotive Service Association

According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect. The following simple and inexpensive preventive checks will greatly extend the life of the vehicle, ensure safer operation and even benefit the environment.

Always consult your owner's manual for individual service schedules because maintenance requirements vary by manufacturer.

  • Always consult your owner's manual, but a good rule of thumb is to have the oil filter changed regularly - every 3,000 to 4,000 miles.
  • Have all fluids checked, including brake, power steering, transmission/transaxle, windshield washer solvent and antifreeze. These fluids play a large role in the safety and performance of the vehicle.
  • Check tire inflation. Under-inflated tires can result in a loss of fuel efficiency. This is the least expensive form of preventive and safety maintenance. Tires should be checked once a month.
  • Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency by as much as 30 percent.
  • Have the chassis lubricated frequently. This step extends the life of the moving components of the vehicle's suspension system.
  • Check battery cables and posts for corrosion and clean them as needed. The battery fluid also should be checked and filled if it is low, unless it is a maintenance-free battery.
  • Have the lighting system checked frequently, including headlights, turn signals, and brake and taillights.
  • Check windshield washer blades for cracks, tears and windshield contact. Replace them at least once a year, or sooner if streaking begins.
  • Inspect engine belts regularly. Worn belts will affect the engine performance. Look for cracks and missing sections or segments.
  • Have the air filtration system checked frequently. The air filter should be checked every other oil change for clogging or damage. This system ensures that the vehicle is performing at its peak condition.
