It’s not always easy to recognize when your vehicle is suffering from a simple problem that requires a little maintenance and TLC or there is real engine damage as symptoms can be overlooked and seen as “normal.” While not all sounds and smells may threaten the life of your car or truck engine, there are some obvious warning signs that require a vehicle inspection here at the shop right away.
This is how I explain it to my friends, when you find a good Doctor you stay with them. When you find a group of mechanics like the ones at Capital Car Care you stay with them. Whether traveling from Northern Virginia to Boston, Cleveland or any of the other places we like to drive we do so knowing we will get me from point A to point B reliably. We attribute that reliability to the outstanding auto maintenance we receive from Capital Auto Care. Their honesty and professionalism has kept them in business a long time. It really doesn't get any better. Thanks Capital Car Care! - Yelp review from Gary in Virginia.
We have great pride in our military and veterans and honor them on Veterans Day each November 11th. Did you know how and why it is on November 11th? The reason dates back to 1918 and pays homage to the date and time the WW I cease fire went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month when a temporary cessation of hostilities, between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect. November 11, 1918, is generally regarded as the end of “the war to end all wars” eventhough the official end of the what we refer to as "The Great War" ended with the Treaty of Versailles signed on June 28, 1919, in the Palace of Versailles outside the town of Versailles, France.
Perfect honest gentlemen. I will never take my vehicles anywhere else. All of the parts they order for vehicles come from my my brothers company. He told me that you can always tell the best independent shop in town by the quality of parts and supplies consistently ordered and that capital car care only orders the top of the line parts and supplies. These guys are the best. I cannot say enough good things about them. -James C.
Have you checked your brakes lately? I know you expect them to stop your car or truck when you step on that brake pedal, but when they don't work as expected it's too late and then you have an accident with damage to your vehicle but more importantly to the people inside your car and those on the road who may be in your path.
Let's avoid that issue! Test your brakes by lightly tapping them in different situations when the roads are both wet and dry. If your vehicle is pulling to one side, your brake pedal pulses up and down or the steering wheel shakes when the brakes are applied, you are very much overdue for a brake check. Getting in early will save you money as it is always easier to fix a problem before it becomes a huge issue and your brakes are gone requiring new brakes, pads, rotars, and drums.
When in doubt stop by our shop and have one of our professional automotive repair technicians take a look. Don't wait until it's too late to solve these problems and let us help you stay safe on the road! After all, that is the reason we raise these garage doors every day and open these tool boxes. We love what we do and want to ensure our drivers can stay on the roads longer with their vehicles safer and more cost efficiently.
I've brought all of my cars there over the years. They aren't ones to sell you repairs you don't need. The prices are reasonable, too, generally, if a little erratic. For instance I had nearly the complete brake system replaced in my truck. (No, they did not upsell me on a new brake system -- I came to them and asked for it). Not just new brake pads, but new lines, new drums and rotors, new calipers. and they did it for an incredible low price. But then one other time what I thought was a minor repair surprised me on the high side. But overall I have saved a lot of money with these guys and the quality of the work is good.
Good people that stand by their work and they don't try to sell you things you don't need.
We love CCC -- they are quick, honest and completely fairly priced. We take both our Honda's there -- Would recommend them highly!
