Routine Vehicle Maintenance

See Us for Your Scheduled Auto Maintenance in San Rafael

Many vehicles that require repair could have prevented the problem by means of inspections, checkups and scheduled car maintenance. Every car and truck has a recommended maintenance plan, and if a physical manual wasn’t included with its purchase, the schedule can be located online. Neuhaus Service, Inc. in San Rafael believes that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of savings. Bring in your personal car or one that you’re interested in buying, and we’ll run a diagnostics report to check on the health of the vehicle.
