Multi-Point Inspection

Summer seasonal maintenance should always begin with a multi-point inspection that evaluates primary systems and vital components. Our certified technicians perform inspections using the certified checklist that ensures thorough and accurate results. A certified Volkswagen multi-point inspection covers a lot of ground, including the tires, battery, brakes, all fluids, filters, engine, transmission, exhaust, and steering/handling systems.

A/C Service & Repair

Living and driving in Florida means living and driving in the extreme summer heat. Nothing promotes a more pleasant driving experience through the summer as solid air conditioning. Air conditioning systems need maintenance when the air isn’t as cold or feels restricted exiting the vents. Fixing A/C problems begin with an inspection that identifies the problem component. Common A/C maintenance includes A/C recharge service to add more refrigerant, condenser/evaporator cleaning to remove blockages, and compressor repairs to fix the pulley or replace the component.

Windshield Wiper Blades

Summer has many rainy days, with heavy thunderstorms likely in and around Clearwater, FL. Good windshield wiper blades will be necessary for the best visibility and safety during summer’s adverse weather. We recommend inspecting and replacing old wiper blades if they have damaged rubber, poor performance defined by leaving streaks, or over one-year-old.


The greatest threat to automotive batteries is extreme heat. Automotive studies have demonstrated that the average battery in the United States lasts 4-5 years, with those deeper south experiencing faster decline and shorter life due to extreme heat. This situation calls for summer battery inspections with load testing to ensure performance and reduce the risk of a dead battery immobilizing your vehicle. We can provide battery replacement service immediately if your old battery fails and inspection/electrical test.
