Regular maintenance inspections lowers vehicle repairs bills and keeps your vehicles running efficiently.  We recommend oil changes every 5,000  KM  or 3 months, whichever occurs first.   Other fluids such as power steering, brakes, differentials & transmissions, we recommend service at 50,000 KM  or 2 year intervals. For tune-up, or spark plug exchange, we suggest following the recommendations of the manufacturer, or as needed. Tires should be rotated every 10-15,000 KM or at least once a year, to keep the wear patterns even between the front and rear tires.


Regular inspections are one of the most important aspects of any maintenance program. Every vehicle that enters our shop and is lifted on the hoist is given a quick visual inspection for potential problems. We will notify you of any problems and will give you an estimate to rectify the problem before they can develop into a safety issue. Of course, you, the customer, have the final say as to whether or not you want the repair completed.

Once on the hoist, all steel lines are inspected for leaks or excessive rust, flex-hoses are checked for cracks, leaks or internal damage, parking brake cables are checked for their condition and operation, and the wheels are spun to ensure free-wheeling before being removed to inspect linings, rotors and calipers.

Battery/Charging System

If your vehicle is a few years old, have the battery and charging system tested to be sure that your battery has the power to start your vehicle and that your alternator is recharging the battery as it should. We currently stock a variety of AC Delco Batteries should you need one. Extreme heat and cold are hard on automotive batteries.

Air Filters/Cabin Filters

A dirty air filter prevents the engine from breathing properly, which can decrease fuel mileage and performance and make the engine work harder than it needs to. Cabin air filters help keep pollens, fumes, smoke, and other materials from reaching the inside of a vehicle. A dirty cabin air filter reduces the airflow through the vehicle’s ventilation system. If your vehicle is equipped with a cabin air filter.
