NAPA Warranty

We have been doing auto repair for a long time. Over time, we’ve developed a deep understanding and knowledge of the various parts manufacturers, whether we are talking OEM or aftermarket parts. This expertise has allowed us to forge long-lasting relationships with the highest quality parts vendors in the industry to ensure your vehicle is always serviced right the first time.

We are so confident in the quality of our parts and our work that we offer to all our customers, starting September 1, 2016, a Limited Lifetime or 36 months/ 36,000 mile warranty on our parts and labor.

Yes, many other automotive service centers out there will extend you warranties, but we would ask you to shop and compare, as we think we have the best warranty out there.

And in the end, this is probably one of the best claims we can make to how much we care about our customers and their vehicles.
