Salinas German Auto Services

Maintaining a vehicle can be a daunting task at times which is why we're here to help. You can count on us being the #1 choice for European automotive repair and service in Salinas, CA. Unlike other automotive repair shops and corporate chains, we only do the repairs that you request and are needed for your vehicle. We will however, provide suggestions, warnings, and a second opinion on matters that could affect the performance, longevity, and even the safety of your vehicle, but will never perform work without your full consent. To that end, we can perform any maintenance task that your vehicle requires, including:

  • All minor and major routine services on BMW, Mercedes Benz, Audi, Volkswagen, and Mini Coopers.
    We follow the factory recommended maintenance schedules for these vehicles, not some corporate chain stores 'suggested schedule'.
  • Any other routine maintenance your vehicle will need during it's life time, such as brakes, clutches, fluid flushes, timing and fan belts, etc.
