If you are inclined as I am to drive a classic vehicle around the country, you start everyday with a little prayer that when the inevitable breakdown occurs, there will be a trusty mechanic just down the road, good mechanics being so hard to find. So when at 5am, trumbling down county road in my 1987 Mitsubishi Delica Starwagon camping van, my transmission failed completely, I was sure glad I awoke two miles from Jerry's Transmission. You can imagine my joy when service manager Matt took a look and considered it just another manual transmission, when I can hardly get anyone to look at this Japanese right hand drive import in my home city, on the west coast, no less.. From start to end, Matt and staff were courteous and helpful. Meticulous and patiently Jerry's team dissected my transmission and ordered parts from Japan while I was going on about my life miles away. They were always trustworthy, honest, and respectful of my vehicle keeping it secure in their storage yard and made sure it set to get back on the long road.

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!
