Can I Receive An Estimate Without Bringing My Vehicle To Your Auto Repair Shop?
While you can call over the phone and inquire about an estimate, it may not be as accurate as if you bring your vehicle in. For example, we can quote you for a water pump replacement, but if it turns out you also need to replace your timing belt, that could drive the price up. It is better and more accurate to bring your vehicle into our repair shop for an exact quote.

What Is Considered Preventative Maintenance?
Preventative maintenance from Ruggless Auto Service includes tire service (rotation, balancing, and alignment) oil changes, and engine tune-ups. Preventative auto service helps extend the longevity of your vehicle and ensure that it is at its peak performance.
How Can I Prepare My Car For Winter?
Before winter approaches, inspect your antifreeze level and condition. If your antifreeze is a rust color, it may be time to flush and refill your cooling system. Check your oil and see if it is time to have an oil change. Inspect your battery, a weak one is at risk of failing in the cold. Check the condition of your tires and inspect your brake system. If you don’t feel comfortable performing these tasks, Ruggless Auto Service would love to do it for you.
Why Is My Check Engine Light On?
Your vehicle is made of a complex system of sensors and computerized components that oversee your engine’s performance and emissions. When a component fails, the “check engine” light shows up on your dashboard letting you know there may be a potential problem. Our auto repair shop can run a diagnostics test to pinpoint the source of the problem.
How Often Should I Rotate My Tires?
Rotating your tires should be a regular maintenance service, you should have them rotated when you have your oil changed or every 6,000 miles. If you ignore the need to rotate your tires, it can cause premature tire wear.
If You Service My Vehicle, Will It Void My Dealership Warranty?
Ruggless Auto Service can provide all your auto repair and maintenance needs without voiding your factory warranty. However, your dealership must perform all factory warranty and recall work. While we can perform all other auto repair and maintenance work, it doesn’t make sense to not use the dealer if the work is “free”.
