Customers Love Us

I took my Mercedes to do the maintenance at HP Autosport a couple months ago. Harold, who's very professional and friendly, explained carefully and clearly what services I needed before he took my car in. As a girl, I don't know cars very well so I am afraid of being overcharged by something unnecessary. However, Harold is honest and reliable who gave me a reasonable estimate with a good service. I will definitely go back and I highly recommend it.

What is a "Check Engine Light"?

Check Engine Light is warning light that is illuminated when the onboard computer in the OBDI or OBDII system senses a malfunction. It requires a proper diagnose from a qualified technician with the proper diagnostic tool. It could be something as simple as a loose gas cap to a more serious engine malfuction. Once this light is illunimated, have a qualified technician inspect it.

Oil Change or Oil Service?

In the old days there is just an oil and filter change, but with newer Audi, BMW, MB, Porsche and VW it's actually an oil service. It's a more than just an oil change, a minor safety inspection is performed, all fluids levels are topped off and tire pressures checked. Please call us for a quote. This service will keep your car covered by the factory warranty. You do not need to go the the dealer for any service work to keep the warranty intact.
