KEEPING YOU SAFE WHEN YOU SERVICE YOUR CAR DURING COVID-19 .

Please know that we are still being very diligent in our efforts to keep you and our staff safe from COVID-19. We regularly disinfect our facility, your keys and high-touch areas in your vehicles before, during and after service. Our lobby is still closed to clients, but we do have a table at the front door where you can drop off your keys and talk to us from a safe distance. We’re looking forward to the day when we can shake hands and do business face-to-face again.

Rodent Damage Can Mean Big Problems for Your Car

While sitting idle, a client’s car suffered some severe rodent damage. He immediately called us and brought the car into our shop.

Upon our initial inspection, we found multiple warning lights on the dash. As we investigated a little further, we found extensive damage to the vehicle’s electrical system and two seat belts that needed to be replaced. One shoulder belt was chewed all the way through, and a seatbelt buckle was chewed halfway through on the opposite side of the vehicle. The scary part was that the buckle was damaged between the seats and wasn’t visible at first glance, which is particularly dangerous.

Along with the seat belt replacement and wiring harness repairs, we performed our FREE 59-point inspection just to be sure all the other major components were in working order.

We were able to replace the seat belts and repair the wiring within two days to get his car back on the road in the condition it’s meant to be driven safely.

Don’t let rodents or other pests take control of your car. All you have to do is schedule an appointment and we’ll take care of the rest!

PARKED CARS COULD MEAN BIG PROBLEMS

In between services? Not driving as much? Mostly we hear about how we need to keep our vehicles maintained every 5,000 miles and how to keep up with our scheduled maintenance. What we don’t hear about is what to do when we’re not driving our cars.

Believe it or not, it’s actually worse for your vehicle to be left idle and unattended than it is to drive it every day. Over time, fluids break down causing excessive internal wear, tires can get flat spots, seals and gaskets can become dry and brittle and start to leak. It’s also very common in Orange County for rodents to build nests and chew on the wires and hoses of your vehicle while it’s being stored.

New cars sales are down as much as 35% nationwide through the second quarter of 2020 indicating that consumers are holding onto their cars instead of buying new ones. Here’s how we can help you get the most value out of your current vehicle.

We are continuing to offer our 59-point inspection for FREE. All you have to do is schedule an appointment, no strings attached.
