BRAKES

The cost of not fixing brake issues can be expensive and dangerous.

To avoid expensive repairs or disastrous brake failure, have your vehicles entire brake system checked by a qualified CarMania technician annually. It will never cost you more than our estimate, and we guarantee every part and service.

MAINTENANCE

THE BEST WAY TO PREVENT LONG-TERM AND COSTLY PROBLEMS WITH YOUR VEHICLE IS TO KEEP UP WITH ITS PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE.
One of the key ways to prevent long-term and costly problems with your vehicle is to keep up with its preventative maintenance schedule.

Every make and model is different, so don’t rely on old ideas or unprofessional advice.

Regardless of your vehicle’s make or model, the owner’s manual will contain a maintenance schedule, and giving your car a check-up periodically can catch anything that looks out of the ordinary.

A PROPERLY MAINTAINED COOLING SYSTEM IS SO ESSENTIAL TO PREVENT YOUR ENGINE FROM OVERHEATING OR, EVEN WORSE, SEIZING UP
In 1939, Packard became the first automobile manufacturer to offer an air conditioning unit in its cars.

It was innovative at the time; however it took up half of the trunk space and proved to be generally unreliable in service.

In today’s vehicles, driving produces an enormous amount of heat and a sophisticated automatic climate control system is essential in preventing your engine from overheating or, in a worst-case scenario, seizing up completely.

Don’t be that motorist stuck on the side of the road with their car hood up!

The trained technicians at Car Mania will inspect your cooling system to spot any potential problems before they start.

REMOTE STARTERS

REMOTE START SYSTEMS KEEP YOU COMFORTABLE
Most people think remote start systems are specifically designed for comfort. While they do enable you to achieve the perfect cabin temperature, they also increase safety by allowing windows to completely defrost before driving.

Letting your vehicle warm up fully before driving also gives the engine enough time to cycle its fluids, helping to preserve engine life.

A remote engine start may even increase your vehicle’s resale value.
