About Us


1. Tires

Over the course of hot summer days in Maumee, the heat on the road can take a toll on your tires. Before the slippery surfaces of Toledo winters hits, get your vehicle in and make sure that your tires are still in good shape. This is also a good time to consider getting your wheels aligned and tires rotated.

2. Heater and Defroster

Before those cold mornings arrive, make sure that your car is in good shape to keep you comfortable. You’ll also want to make sure you’ll be able to get the ice off of your car by getting your heater and defroster checked.



3. Windshield Wipers

Throughout the dry and temperate days of late summer and early fall, it might not be obvious if your windshield wipers need to be replaced. Once the sleet and snow and salt start coming into play, though, it could leave you with an obstructed view of the road in front of you. Bring your car in now to see if it’s time to get your windshield wipers replaced.

4. Check for Recalls

It’s one thing to get stranded from a failing mechanism in your car during nice summer weather, but in the middle of Sylvania winters, it can prove to be more dangerous. Check with your local dealer or manufacturer to see if your vehicle has any recalls scheduled, and then schedule an appointment to get it in as soon as possible.
