There seems to be a common misconception among many that if you have an aftermarket/extended warranty, that your car, truck, SUV or Jeep must be taken to a dealership. This is not true. Non-dealership / Independent Automotive repair shops can service and repair your new or UNDER WARRANTY/EXTENDED WARRANTY. As a positive, at our shop you can get fast service and work with highly trained technicians!  We'd love to take care of your vehicle for you and can do so right here at our automotive shop. Repairs by highly rated and trained automotive technicians with dealer rated diagnostic tools, at BETTER PRICING by a shop that knows you!

It is a law that independent automotive repairs shops can maintain and service your warranty. All consumers are protected by the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, that is enforced by Federal Trade Commission (FTC). It prohibits a manufacturer from voiding the new vehicles warranty or a vehicles extended warranty because service was performed by a Non-Dealer/Independent Repair shop.

Per the FTC, “It's illegal for a dealer to deny your warranty coverage simply because you had warranty work or routine maintenance or repairs performed by our automotive shop. Routine maintenance can include anything from oil changes, tire rotations and belt replacement, to fluid checks, flushes, new brake pads and inspections.” It is also important to note that the “Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act makes it illegal for a company to void your warranty or deny coverage under the warranty for the simple cause that you used an aftermarket or recycled part.”

One of the major perks to bringing your vehicle to an independent repair shop is the ability to make your money go further. Many times, warranties will have a limit or a deductible. Our goal is to make your warranty work for you.

Lastly, If you are on the fence about whether or not to purchase an AFTERMARKET or EXTENDED warranty. We suggest opening a savings account for your car and putting back money for possible breakdowns. While warranties are great the limitations can sometimes outweigh the benefits.

Whichever option you may choose we will be there for you every step of the way! We look forward to taking care of your new or under extended/aftermarket warranty, car, truck, SUV or Jeep right here. Give us a call today!

Jim has come to my rescue, and is a great mechanic, he has a first rate shop that you can trust. No scams here, just an honest and trustworthy repair shop! - Laurice P.

Have been going to The Auto Shop for ten years now and have never been given wrong info or been over charged for work. They always tell me what is wrong with the car and list it from worst to what can wait. Have had a time when daughters car was acting up they tried a certain part to see if that would work. They let my daughter drive car for a week to make sure that was the problem. (Luckily the part they put on was the problem). Not many shops will let you do that. I am not that mechanically inclined so I rely on them to fix problems. When people tell me about their car problems I always refer them to The Auto Shop. - Dana C.

Seventeen years, seven drivers in the family, and multiple cars, I have never had a bad experience with the Auto Shop, nor talked to anyone who did. When the kids were in college, I'd have them drive home from L.A. or Santa Barbara to have their cars worked on here, because I knew it would be done right, the first time. They have always gone above and beyond for me. - Brian C.

Awesome!!! Fast and very friendly people. They did great work! - Paula P.

One of the best things in life is when you FINALLY find a good mechanic you can trust! I've used the Auto Shop for several years now and find the staff to be super professional. The prices are reasonable and I can always trust that I'm getting a square deal. Thanks Auto Shop! - Richard S.
