The Best Auto and Truck Repair Maintenance Services in San Marcos

At Paradise Auto and Truck Center in San Marcos Ca, we offer complete automotive service and repair for all makes and models of cars and trucks. From Mercedes and Audi’s to Toyota hybrids to Ford, Dodge and Chevy diesel truck engines and everything in between, we service and repair it all. Our ASE certified technicians know how to diagnose your automobile and truck correctly the first time. Whether you have a check engine light on or simply need an oil change, Paradise Auto and Truck Center is the auto repair shop for you. If you are driving down the road and brakes start to squeak, bring your vehicle in for a free brake inspection. The sooner we diagnose the problem with the brakes, the less the repair costs will be. For example, if you simply need pads or the rotors turned, those can easily be fixed in an hour or two and it’s very affordable brake repair. If you let the brakes go too long without looking at them, you might end up having to replace the brake pads and rotate the rotors, or worse, have to replace the rotors. At Paradise Auto & Truck Center in San Marcos, we care about our clients and want them to have the best experience possible, so we treat everyone like they are family. If there are tips we can provide you after your vehicle inspection, then we will empower you with the knowledge that will help your cars and trucks run longer and have inexpensive car and truck repairs.

30,000 60,000 90,000 Mile Tune Up

Is it time for your 30,000 60,000 90,000 Mile Tune Up? If so, then it is time to bring your vehicle into Paradise Auto & Truck Center in San Marcos where Charlie Marabella will personally help you with all your automotive needs. One of the most important things you can do for your car to keep your vehicle running is to keep the fluids clean by changing them on a regular basis. The engine is the heart of your vehicle and the fluids are the blood, so changing the oil based on the manufactures recommendations is probably the single most important thing you should do. However, there is no standard interval to change the oil for all vehicles. Be sure to have your cars and trucks serviced every 15,000 miles. The important milestones are 30k, 45k, 60k, 75k, 90k and 105k miles. Replace the worn wiper blades and check the wiper blade fluid levels. Flush the radiator if it has been more than 30,000 miles, otherwise top off with coolant. Hot and cold temperatures tend to tighten and loosen hoses, belts and clamps. Be sure to have them checked out at Paradise Auto & Truck Center in San Marcos. Change the Oil and Oil Filter. Paradise Auto & Truck Center is still offering the Lowest Price Oil Change in Town at only $12.00 for an oil change plus disposal fee when you purchase three at a time. Inspect the lights and the bulbs to ensure proper visibility on the road. Check the condition of the tires… Our auto mechanics are ASE Certified and are trained to work on your car or truck.... read more
