The Power Of Preventative Maintenance
Preventative maintenance is having worn parts discovered and replaced before they cause a total system breakdown. Inspections are done at your convenience and at predictable cost. Without servicing, breakdowns are inevitable, inconvenient and expensive! Call us and let’s talk about saving money.
Maintenance made easy
Owner’s manuals are boring and confusing – we’re here to make it easy. Just choose the season and book your service. Maintaining a car in good condition will keep it safe, let you drive it for a long time, and someday sell it more easily for a better price.
Click here for our easy-peasy seasonal service guide.
Brake maintenance saves you money
At Dunrobin Auto we recommend a brake service twice per year. Each Spring it is best to clean and lube caliper slides, remove rust and salt build up. In Fall, all brake components require cleaning and lubrication after being subjected to the dry, hot summer. We’re confident you’ll find this a much cheaper alternative to replacing pads, rotors and possibly calipers on a regular basis.
We always want to hear from you. Need a ride? Need your car fixed on the weekend?
