High-Quality Products and Equipment


Our team leverages technology to give you unparalleled service. We use the latest factory scan tools and computer software for automotive diagnostics. This way, we are able to thoroughly inspect your car and identify the problem that needs to be addressed. If needed, we also utilize an internal engine camera.

We have a dynamometer to determine your vehicle’s torque and power. In addition, we have a smoke machine in place should you need assistance in checking your car’s vacuum system for possible leaks.

Our wheel alignment machine is engineered to premium standards, effective in adjusting the angles of your car’s wheels for improved driving dynamics. The tire changers at our shop are top-notch, allowing us to mount and demount your car’s wheels in a fast and efficient way.
