Preventive Maintenance

Preventive Maintenance

Preventive vehicle maintenance is simply what the manufacturer of your vehicle suggests getting done to keep your vehicle performing optimally over the course of its lifetime. And it’s truly the best way to avoid serious breakdowns and minimize the high costs associated with serious automotive repairs. Whether you have a car, truck, or SUV, we provide the maintenance services to keep it running well.

Brakes unavoidably wear out over time. How long they last is based on numerous factors, such as where you live and how you brake. For this reason, it is necessary to service your brakes regularly. We are familiar with the driving conditions here in DeKalb, and know that your brakes need care. So we provide a complimentary inspection with every service to make sure that any problem is addressed before it becomes a major concern.

We have exceptional diagnostic capabilities at Barb City Automotive. Not only do we use the latest technology and state-of-the-art equipment, our technicians review areas of your vehicle’s engine that may not be covered by a computer system.
