Everyday Essentials

While a Kia Sportage is not a Dodge Durango or a Volkswagen Atlas, all three models share basic needs. All vehicles need essential maintenance to keep the engine running optimally while you enjoy a smooth, comfortable ride. Our team is pleased to offer standard maintenance services at our repair center near Dubuque, such as:

  • Tire rotation
  • Belt and hose replacement
  • Oil and filter change
  • and much more

In addition to giving you a vehicle that runs well right away, these services help prevent more significant problems since they give our team another look at your vehicle. While we're performing your service, we can check your vehicle's systems and alert you to any issues when they are still minor repairs.

Advanced Repairs

Hiawatha driving is full of uneven pavement, potholes, and other road hazards. If you commute and carpool through town, it's almost a sure recipe for alignment and shock issues. So, if your RAM 1500 veers to the side of the road or your Chevy Silverado doesn't ride as smoothly, bring your truck in to get these problems addressed at our service center in Cedar Rapids. If you wait, your vehicle can develop more significant or additional issues.

OEM Parts and Accessories

Although your everyday routine can sometimes feel repetitious, life is about more than making it to work or getting errands done. For example, when you want to go on vacation outside of Mount Vernon, we can outfit your Dodge, Chrysler, or any other vehicle with OEM parts and accessories likeĀ  roof rails, a bicycle rack, or cargo management systems. Talking to our team can give you an idea of what we can do for your vehicle.
