At Long Lake Automotive, this statement really outlines our philosophy around vehicle care. Maintenace is about more than just oil changes and fluid flushes, it is about regular inspections and services that will keep your vehicle running in top shape with less stress, breakdowns and in the end, we can prove it will save you significant amounts of money over the lifetime of vehicle ownership.

Our goal at Long Lake Automotive is to make each customer an educated customer. What is an educated customer? A customer who, fully understands the unique requirements of their vehicle and is prepared for the various costs that will be incurred to keep the vehicle in good shape, safe and reliable over the full course of ownership. We aim to minimize surprises and do so by performing proper inspections and based on those, create a plan that will stretch many years into the future. This “Maintenance Plan” will take the vehicle on a journey through many levels of service and inspections to properly identify concerns and repair them BEFORE the vehicle breaks down.
