Frequently Asked Questions

FREQUENTLY ASKED REPAIR AND SERVICE QUESTIONS

Can I bring my vehicle to Pacific Automotive for service even though I purchased my vehicle through a dealer?
Yes-you may bring your vehicle to Pacific Automotive for any service regardless of purchase location. We can perform all factory required services at a much lower price than the dealer, and we will let you know of any work that needs to be done by the dealer under the manufacture warranty.

What type of warranty do you offer on your services?
We stand by our work, and all repairs done by Pacific Automotive are warranted. Ask your service adviser for warranty details for your specific services and repairs.

Will I pay a higher price to service my vehicle at Pacific Automotive than other independents?
Other independents may quote you a lower price for the same repair, but in most cases will call you back after the car is apart to tell you about additional items necessary. Pacific Automotive will always be less expensive than the dealer, but the service superior and personalized. Pacific Automotive aims to give you the lowest possible price at the highest value possible.

Do you have a Body Shop?
Pacific Automotive does not have a body shop on site, but we will help refer you to a body shop that will best fit your needs.

Pacific Automotive does not stock tires. Pacific Automotive has partnered with Discount Tire to get you the best price on tires as well as a nationwide warranty with free tire rotations for the life of your tires.
