Consumer Reports Magazine says, “Get it inspected. Have any used car thoroughly inspected by a qualified mechanic. He should also check for any recalls related to the car and verify whether the work was done.” in their article titled, Seven Ways to Avoid a Lemon in their April 2012 Annual Auto Issue.
You see the interior of the vehicle every day. While a nice interior is pleasant to look at, it doesn’t make your car safer. You need to make sure that the engine, fuel system and other parts of the vehicle work properly. You can’t see these parts, so you will need to take your car to a mechanic for an inspection before purchasing the vehicle.
Safety is every driver’s biggest priority. When you purchase a used car, you want peace of mind, knowing your family will be safe driving and riding in the vehicle.

All Around Auto Repair provides maintenance for cars of all makes and models. Our mechanics also service most types of recreational vehicles, boats, and motor homes. We use sophisticated diagnostic computers to find out why your check engine light went on and identify any other problems with your vehicle.
A regular oil change lubricates your engine in the short term and provides long-term protection by actually cleaning your engine’s parts as it goes about its business of taking you from point A to point B.
Brake Repairs and Replacements
Too many people think that brake problems either mean you need new brake pads or all new brakes. A smart auto mechanic can find other solutions. We love solving problems and educating our customers.
Inspections, Car Care & Tune Ups
Slight vibrations in your steering wheel or brakes that grind and become less effective are surefire, though sometimes subtle, signs that you're overdue for a tune up. Don't wait for the check engine light.
Scheduled Maintenance (30k/60k/90k)
Getting your vehicle serviced is critical to keeping your vehicle running smoothly and on the road for longer. You're probably already pretty familiar with the importance of getting your oil changed, but did you know that this is only one kind of car service that you can get?
Engine Work and Overhauls
With many sophisticated and advanced improvements along with the use of modern electronics and materials car engines have become more and more complex to understand and their repair and maintenance a bit more complicated.
Without a doubt, diagnostics tools make life easier for all of us. Computers and sensors inside your car can alert you to trouble before something bad happens or significantly speed up the search for a solution.
Air Conditioning Service and Repair
Auto experts say that the benefits of maintaining a comfortable temperature far outweigh the marginal increase in fuel economy that you'll get from being sweaty and uncomfortable by going a few degrees warmer.
Transmission Service and Repair
Good transmission service and repair is essential for your vehicle because it will promote optimal performance and prevent the failure of the component.
Clutch Repair and Replacement
Though the quality and lifespan of the typical clutch has improved over the years, it will not last forever. If you have driven your vehicle in excess of 20,000 miles, you should have its clutch inspected at least once a year.
