Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to bring my car in?

This question can sometimes be hard to answer. The safe bet is always yes. If your car is acting strange there probably is a reason. Our technicians have a wide variety of diagnostic experience. Common issues include check engine light, TPMS light, ABS light, vehicle pulling to one side or the other, engine stalls, shimmy, noises (squeaks, squeals, chirps, clunks, etc.), fluid leaks, and smells. Give us a call at 763-295-9655 or stop in and we can get you taken care of!

Do I need an appointment?

We take both appointments and walk ins. Keep in mind that we are a smaller shop and are usually booked with appointments most days. Making an appointment is always preferred but sometimes isn’t possible. In those cases we will get to your vehicle as soon as we can!

Trading in or buying a new car?

We do used vehicle inspections! Typically a brand new car is not going to need an inspection. If you are purchasing a used vehicle we can inspect it and let you know what/if anything needs replacing and give you quotes for needed repairs. You can then take the info back to the dealer and use it for bargaining. We want to make sure you’re getting the best deal possible. Not sure what car you even want or where to start? We can help steer you in the right direction. Both of our mechanics have been in the automotive industry for over 15 years and have perfected their opinions on what to buy and what to stay away from.
