  • What cars do you work on?

    We are an independent repair facility specializing in Acura, Honda, Toyota, Lexus, Scion and Subaru vehicles.

  • Can I drop my car off before you open?

    You are welcome to drop your vehicle off before we open, even the night before. Please park in a legal parking spot, lock your vehicle and drop your key through the slot in our front roll up door. We will contact you to verify we received your vehicle and to check in with you about what we will be doing for you on that day. A couple of things to note; we can not be responsible for anything that happens to your vehicle while it is parked on the street, this includes parking violations. The meters our front of the shop run Monday through Saturday 9 am to 6 pm.

  • Can I wait while you work on my car?

    With prior arrangements, we are happy to repair your vehicle while you wait.

  • When are you open?

    We are open 7:30 am to 5:25 pm, Monday through Friday.

  • Do I have to take my car to the dealer?

    You do not have to take your vehicle to the dealer for the warranty to remain in effect. Any work you must pay for can be performed at the repair facility of your choosing. You will need to keep records in case you need to prove that you have been maintaining your vehicle according to the manufacturer's recommendations.

    Bottom line if the dealer is going to do repairs or maintenance at no charge, you must take it to them. If you must pay for it, bring it to us.

  • What methods of payment do you accept?
