Same-Day Service

For most repairs, our team will work on your vehicles and have them back to you the same day.

Customer Shuttle

Having enough time during the day to get your car fixed, serviced, or checked out can be a challenge. We offer a convenient courtesy shuttle within the local area that will bring you to and from work or home. This will allow you to continue with life as usual while we repair your cars. Let us know if you need a ride to drop off or pick up your vehicle.

Inspection Services

Pre-Purchase Vehicle Inspection

If you purchased a used vehicle or are thinking of purchasing one, let our experts perform a complete vehicle inspection. We will provide you with a list of any items we find, along with an estimate for the repairs. We will even help you prioritize the things needed to be done for your car.

Most dealerships nowadays will allow you to take the vehicle to be checked by your repair shop. We have had some of our customers meet the prospective private seller at our shop so we could inspect the car. In most cases, you can wait while we do this. Just give us a call before coming in to make sure we've got a lift open.

Our Team

Will make sure you don't get caught with unexpected costly repairs. Let us check your vehicle out before you buy it.  Call today or use our convenient on-line request form to schedule an appointment, or if you'd just like more information about this service.

End of Warranty Vehicle Inspection

Is your vehicle manufacturer's warranty about to expire? Trust our team to perform a complete vehicle inspection and give you a list of the items covered under warranty. This will help you know what needs to be repaired so that it can be done before your warranty runs out. Other than that, we can take care of anything that's not covered or included in your car’s warranty

We have access

To the same technical service bulletins and recall information as the dealer. You can bet your local dealer isn't going to remind you to check your vehicle before your warranty ends, nor will they warn you about known problems that could cost you thousands of dollars after it expires. If you're reaching the end of your manufacturer's warranty, reach out to us to schedule your end of warranty inspection.

Road Trip or College-Bound/Return-Home Vehicle Inspections

Heading out for a road trip? Have a college student heading back to school or returning home? Whatever the reason is, Douglas Automotive Repair Inc. can give your vehicle a thorough inspection to make sure you don't get sidelined by a breakdown. We are happy to provide this service to keep you and your loved ones safe on the road.
