Automotive Service Associates has always recognized that where you take your vehicle for service and repair is an important decision. After all, the safety and reliability of your car depends on it. We believe there are some very distinct advantages to working with an independent, family-owned shop. We can summarize it all in one sentence – You have more options when you take your vehicle to a family-owned auto repair shop:

  • Parts

    Typically, when it comes to repair work, replacement parts are OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) equipment or better. You may think that’s appropriate, after all, they are fitting parts that are intended for your vehicle. However, we can offer you additional choices for replacement parts and the ones we can provide might actually be of higher quality and a better price.

  • Experience

    It is reasonable to suppose the average technician at a dealership would be more knowledgeable than those at an independent repair shop. However, after seeing our repair results, you’ll easily recognize that our veteran technicians provide a higher level of service than most dealership technicians. Not only do we know your vehicle, inside and out, we have broader knowledge and experience. Our technicains possess greater diagnostic skills that can only be acquired from years of repairing many different makes and wide-ranging model years.

  • More Choices

    Automotive Service Associates can recommend more options and provide more solutions. We are able to shop many different brands and will help you select the right brand for your vehicle and budget.
