Diagnosing problems takes expertise, equipment, tools, and labor hours, so yes we do charge for this.

For some services we have standard service charges. For a labor rate line we have two different rates depending on the type of work. Standard for general types of repair, and Advanced for more specialized types of work such as electrical, engine overhauls, etc. Contact us for a quote on the work you need done.

Yes, we have standards in how we measure and make recommendations on different components. On our inspection sheets we have specific numbers for what would categorize a component as Green, Yellow, Red. A few examples would include:

brake fluid (moisture content %, visual condition), coolant (boiling point temperature, visual condition), tires (mm. tread depth, age, weather cracking, suppleness), disc brake pads/ drum brake shoes (mm. Thickness, glazing, seperation), battery (CCA output vs battery rating, age, cell condition),

There are also many items that have recommended manufacture service intervals such as transmission fluid, timing belts, fuel filter, water pump, etc. 

On our quotes, we will specify if an item is Red or Yellow to help you understand the urgency of an item.  Not all items are urgent, but if left too long they can have cascading effects that may cost you more money in the long run.. an example might be loose suspension/ steering components. This can lead to the wheels being out of alignment and cause uneven tire wear.

Yes!  We provide a 90 day new parts + labor warranty.  

* We do not offer any warranty on used parts (ie. automatic transmissions, engines, electrical components, etc). 

 

Warranties:

  • Standard part replacement warranty: 30 days for replacement of new parts and labor for that part replacement.
  • Service & Repair work (ie. machine work, alignments, etc
  • Paint & Body Work:
  • Engine Overhaul:  warranty on the particular parts used to partially or fully rebuild/ overhaul the engine.

 

Terms and Conditions:

To be clear, our warranty does not cover a general issue with the car, but only the parts and labor involved for replacing a particular component.  

 

Non-Warranty Examples:

  1. if you come in with an A/C problem and we find a problem on one part of the system and fix it, but later another part of the system (different part) has an issue, our warranty does not cover the whole a/c system from having any problems, but only if there is a problem on the component we fixed initially.  
  2. Another more complex case might be that we find that only a certain part of a larger part has an issue. For example the front clutch assembly on your a/c compressor needs to be replaced, and after replacement it works fine for a while, then the compressor acts up and we find that the whole compressor needs to be replaced.  In this case you will need to buy a new compressor (includes front clutch assembly) but we will reimburse you for the replacement of the clutch assembly as long as it is within 7 days of replacing the clutch assembly, if beyond this point then we cannot reimburse you for the clutch assembly.
