With other problems, the driver may be able to operate the vehicle seemingly normally for some time, but the vehicle will need an eventual repair. These include grinding brakes, rough idle (often caused by the need for a tune-up), or poor shock absorption. Many vehicle owners with personal economic difficulty or a busy schedule may wait longer than they should get necessary repairs made to their vehicles, thereby increasing damage or else causing more danger.

Having routine maintenance is just one of the many ways you can promote a longer and smoother ride for your vehicle.

ASE Master Mechanics

We say “our mechanics are ASE master mechanics”, but what does that mean to you? The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence is a non-profit organization with the goal of providing excellent service and professional care for your vehicle. ASE is a voluntary course of training and we make sure all our mechanics are ASE certified before they work on your vehicle. Our mechanics are required to have extensive experience on the job training and/or hold an associate’s degree in automotive repair before they can work at American & Import Auto Repair. It is this difference that makes our expert mechanics essential to repairs on your vehicles in Johnson City. So next time you ask “where is an auto mechanic near me?” you will be sure that American & Import Auto Repair is the best choice for you.

Preventative Maintenance Procedures

The last thing anyone wants to see is a check engine light on the dashboard. One of the best ways to avoid extreme repairs to your vehicle is preventative maintenance. One of the first steps we recommend at American & Import Auto Repairs is to be up to date on preventative maintenance for your vehicle. Some of our customers that follow a regular maintenance schedule have 320,000 to over 380,000 miles on their vehicles and are still dependable! It may seem like your car is running fine, but warnings like the check engine light can mean signs of problems. Coming in early and diagnosing those problems is a key to your car’s longevity. Also, our knowledgeable mechanics will be able to answer any questions about when is the right time for you to come in for additional preventative maintenance procedures.
