JC automotive is always a nice place to bring your vehicle to be fixed, always pleasant people to help you, and your vehicle always gets fixed. I've been back with both of my vehicles everytime they have a problem, and problem gets resolved without emptying your bank account. Thanks guys and girls for the great service. - John O (5 star review found on Google)
They were able to diagnose a tricky coolant-leak issue that originally appeared to be a head gasket leak on both heads (over $2500 repair estimate).
However, they kept running a variety of tests to verify the problem and, through great "detective" work, discovered a leaking front seal that was very hard to find based on how the coolant "snaked" its way around the engine. So the repair was only $500.
The word that comes to mind? Integrity. They could have "had me" for over $2500; but they demonstrated fairness, skill, and integrity by continuing to go above-and-beyond to diagnose the problem and fix it. I give JC Automotive my highest recommendation! - Donaldo M (5 star review found on Yelp)
One word. AWESOME. Excellent, service, professional and HONEST. I found JC's about two years ago, and they continue to impress me every time I take my vehicles in. I really appreciate them always going the extra mile, and have always told me when it's not worth the money or necessary to replace parts. Great Service, especially Karen! - Shanon L (5 star review found on Yelp)

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!
TRUE OR FALSE? Until your vehicle is out-of-warranty, it must be serviced by the new car dealer or the factory warranty will be void?
FALSE? Our ASE Certified technicians at JC Automotive CAN SERVICE your vehicle if it is under warranty with the same tools typically faster and at a better price point plus we are cross trained in multiple lines of vehicles vs. just the brand at the dealership you bought your car or truck giving you more options!
