More on Our Automotive Service Expertise

  • Auto A/C Repair & Service

    Auto A/C Repair & Service

    Come summer, you need your auto A/C to be working properly to ensure your comfortable while driving. Our technicians are proficient in all phases of auto air conditioning repair and service, whether your A/C unit simply needs to be recharged, or you have a faulty condenser or computer issue. If your car air conditioning isn’t keeping you cool the way it should, stop by Downtown Garage for an A/C system diagnostic. Our mechanics won’t tolerate a bunch of hot air coming from your vehicle.

  • Wheel Alignments

    Wheel Alignments

    Wheel alignments keep your vehicle running reliably and efficiently by reducing tire wear, improving gas mileage, and promoting safer driving conditions. Left untreated, wheel alignment problems have the potential to turn into steering and suspension issues because driving with wheels out of alignment not only puts stress on your tires but also on suspension components. We have state-of-the-art wheel alignment equipment at Downtown Garage and will make sure any alignment issues you’re experiencing are totally straightened out.

  • Brake Repair & Service

    Brake Repair & Service

    You must be able to count on your vehicle’s brakes to give you maximum stopping power when you need it, so if you’re experiencing any symptoms of a brake problem, such as squealing, grinding, or slow braking response time, it’s time for brake service. If you come to us ASAP, it’s likely the brake repair you need will be simpler and less expensive than if you wait and allow a small issue to damage other brake system components. Our mechanics are brake experts, trained to precisely service and repair all brake systems.

  • Suspension Repair & Service

    Suspension Repair & Service

    Modern vehicles benefit from more precise and complex front-end components than in the past, which means suspension system parts become increasingly critical for your car’s overall performance. If you’re experiencing a shaky, rough ride, your struts and/or shocks could be the problem, or you may need other front-end work. Our mechanics can handle any repairs involving your front-end components, suspension system, and struts and shocks. We’ll have you enjoying smooth, comfortable driving conditions in no time.

  • Auto Diagnostics

    Auto Diagnostics

    If your check engine light is on or you’re experiencing any type of drivability issues, your next step should be to seek out an auto diagnostic service. Auto diagnostics allow our technicians to gather helpful information about the operating condition of your vehicle and determine the extent of auto repairs you need. Basically, answering the questions: “why’s my check engine light on?” and/or “what’s wrong with my car?” Our mechanics are skilled diagnosticians who can pinpoint the issue(s) causing problems for your vehicle.

  • Oil Change / Lube Service

    Oil Change / Lube Service

    No one can over-emphasize the importance of regular oil changes. When oil breaks down over time, it becomes less effective as a lubricant, which means parts of your engine will rub together and wear out, potentially leading to the need for expensive repairs and replacements. As your car ages, routine lube service becomes even more important to prevent loss of performance and efficiency. When you come to Downtown Garage for an oil change, we promise to make it as quick and convenient as possible.

  • Exhaust Repair, Service & Pipe Bending

    Exhaust Repair, Service & Pipe Bending

    Your exhaust system is more than just a muffler—it’s a series of pipes that run under your car connecting your muffler and catalytic converter. At Downtown Garage, we can take care of all your exhaust service needs, including exhaust repair and replacement, muffler repair and replacement, and tailpipe repair and replacement. Our technicians will make sure your vehicle runs quieter, cleaner, and more efficiently than before, so you enjoy better vehicle performance. We also do custom exhaust pipe-bending and sizing.
