General Maintenance

 

Vortex offers a full spectrum of maintenance for all vehicle makes and models.

Customers quite often are not aware that they are not required to perform scheduled maintenance during the warranty period at the dealership. Vortex can perform the same full suite of inspections and diagnostic services according to the manufacturer's checklist, at significant savings. Bring your car in and our technicians will recommend the proper service based on the vehicle age and mileage.

Vortex mechanics are certified with over 175 years of combined experience. All services include wash, vacuum and a complimentary vehicle report, as well as pickup and drop-off service as needed. Come in today for a free quote!

Oil Service

Vortex employs only the best in conventional and synthetic oils to ensure optimum engine performance. Oil service is recommended every 3,000-5,000 miles for most vehicles.

Brake Service

Inspecting your brakes every 10,000 miles (or sooner under rigorous driving conditions) helps detect problems early before they can spread to other brake system components and require expensive repairs. Our technicians inspect pads and shoes, check the integrity of the hydraulic system, and refill and bleed the system as necessary to ensure precise brake performance.

Alignment   

Proper tire alignment is a critical consideration for all drivers. Misalignments cause rapid tire tread wear and impair the proper handling of the vehicle. Vortex technicians employ the industry-standard Hunter DSP600 laser alignment rack to optimize camber, caster, and toe-in for your particular vehicle and driving needs (on the street or on the track), guaranteeing maximum responsive steering and long tread life.

Tire Balance & Rotation

Regularly balancing your tires ensures a smoother ride and a longer life for tires and suspensions; rotating tires periodically (every 6000 miles is recommended) keeps the tread wear consistent between the tires. Vortex performs only dynamic (preferred to static) balancing with the state-of-the-art Corghi Master 26 touchless tire machine and Coats Direct Drive 1250 laser balancing system.
