The Legendary Inspection
When you bring your car to Village AutoCare for any service, even just an oil change or minor repair, you’ll get our Legendary Inspection. This free examination is designed to let you know about any pending or potential problems, so you can make the best decisions for your car and your budget. Even if a fix isn’t needed immediately, this knowledge can help prevent breakdowns by allowing you to adapt your driving habits until you get the issue addressed.
It’s far better—and cheaper—to be proactive about your car’s maintenance. And it all starts with the oil change, which increases your engine’s lifespan and keeps things running smoothly. Coming in for regular service also helps us get to know your car, so we can monitor systems and components over time and spot small problems before they become big ones.
Transmissions, brake systems, power steering, differentials and cooling systems all function better and last longer when their specific fluids are changed on a regular basis, too. We’ll ensure fluids are kept at the correct level and let you know when they should be changed. (Good news: These fluids don’t need to be changed as often as your oil!)
Other preventive services include cleaning or replacing the following wear-and-tear items:
- Induction systems
- Brake parts
- Timing belts
- Fuel and air filters
- Wiper blades
- Serpentine belts
- Spark plugs
Sometimes, even well-maintained cars need a little extra TLC before they can get back on the road—and occasionally, you can run into more serious issues. So if your car is shaking, making strange noises or just not running right, it’s trying to tell you something—don’t ignore it! Whether it’s mechanical or electrical, we’ll take a look, give you our opinion and help you make the right call for you and your car.
We also provide repairs for components such as headlight and taillight assemblies, window motors, air-conditioning systems and more. If you need a windshield replacement in addition to other services, we often can have a third-party provider perform the work while your car is here. And we’ve even done minor body work for clients, saving them time and money versus going to a body shop. If you need something, just ask!
You don’t have to go a specialty shop to have your tires checked, rotated or replaced: We can do it right here, including flat fixes and balancing! Whatever you drive, we’ll make sure you have the right tires for your vehicle, your driving habits and your budget.
Buying a used car can be a great way to save money, but if it has serious problems you don’t know about, those savings might be wiped out with repair bills. For a small fee, we’re happy to perform our Legendary Inspection on any car you’re thinking about buying. You’ll get the information you need to be confident about your purchase, avoid a potentially disastrous situation or maybe even negotiate a better price.
