Drivers often get price shock when paying for foreign car repair because the parts cost more than parts for American made cars. Foreign cars include all Japanese cars, such as Toyota and Mitsubishi, but also BMW, Mercedes, Volkswagen, Porsche, Volvo, Jaguar and Audi. While a dealership will usually have mechanics who specialize in foreign car repair, drivers who buy a foreign car far from his or her hometown, may have trouble finding a mechanic capable of working on a foreign vehicle. Also, there are fewer online manuals and books that help amateur mechanics fix things in their driveway, unlike the manuals available for American made cars.

Another problem with foreign car repair is the amount of time it may take a shop to receive an ordered part. If the repair requires extensive work and the parts aren’t stocked at the shop, the mechanic will need to order the parts. Sometimes, mechanics may need to order a part from overseas. In addition, if the car isn’t in driving condition, then the driver will end up needing to rent a car until the part arrives and the mechanic fixes it.

TIRE REPAIR SERVICES IN CAMPBELL, CA.

Flat Tires can easily cause the rim of the tire to rest on the tire tread or on the ground possibly creating in loss of control of the automobile or irrecoverable damages to the tire. The most common reason for a flat tire is puncturing of the tire by a sharp object, such as a nail, permitting air escape. Depending on the dimension of the puncture, the tire could deflate gradually or swiftly. Which might lead to the following issues:

  1. Failure of or damages to the valve stem
  2. Enabling air to escape from the valve or inducing damages with deliberate puncturing
  3. Rubbing of the tire versus the roadway, ripping the tire, or separation of tire and rim by crash with additional objects
  4. Too much wear of the tire tread causing explosive tire failing or enabling roadway debris to tear through it

Some tires, especially a slow leakage, can easily be repaired and re-inflated; others, specifically those from used tread, should be changed.

CALIFORNIA TIRE REPAIR

Listed here are some simple methods to catch tire issues before they become costly or dangerous. Take a thorough examination of each tire in a well lit atmosphere. Inspect for unequal tire wear, which can easily be created by:

  1. Excessive or inadequate air pressure
  2. Troubles with tire positioning or tire balancing
  3. Problems with the suspension
  4. Uneven tire wear could be an indication that you might need to have your tires rotated

These could mean you require brand-new tires– quickly. Driving with a flat tire, especially at high speeds, may result in a deadly crash. These issues have the capacity to cause a blowout, inducing a loss of control that may be incredibly risky.

  1. Splitting or bulging treads or sidewalls that may imply there is wear or weakness
  2. Foreign objects that penetrate in to the tire (nails, screws, glass)
  3. Tread pulling away from the body of the tire

TRANSMISSION REPAIR SERVICES IN CAMPBELL, CA.

Since transmission fluid loses viscosity gradually, replacing your transmission fluid routinely could protect the life of the transmission itself and stop some transmission complications. Frank’s Foreign Car Service provides quality affordable transmission repair in Campbell, CA and other auto repair services.

What it does: Transmission fluid coats and protects the gears in the transmission. This coating helps prevent too much wear and slipping of the gears. Therefore it is imperative that a transmission fluid flush be performed every 30,000 miles.

Why service is important: Transmission fluid loses effectiveness eventually. Flushing your transmission fluid at routine intervals may enhance the life of the transmission and stop some transmission troubles.

Get your transmission examined if:

  1. Your automobile won’t move

    I have been coming for about 7 years now!

    — Stas O. —
  • Greg is awesome, I stopped in and asked him to diagnose my car trouble, which he did at no charge.
    The shop is clean and tidy, I’ll be going back.

    — Mr. S. —
  • I love this place. Greg is honest, efficient, knowledgeable, and always helpful. Highly recommended. for any car repair/servicing needs.

    — Justin D. —
  • This is my first time to come to this auto repair shop. After I explained the problem with my car, it took only few minutes for Greg to find out the cause. Highly recommend!

    — Nikki H. —
  • This place is a definite recommend! Greg is very honest and thorough and knows his stuff. Ten stars!

    — Lisap N. —
  • My family have brought our cars here for years. I echo the other comments about honesty and integrity. Also polite and nice people to talk to.

    — Heather S. —
  • I have been a customer since 1978, when Joe owned it and Greg worked for him. Greg did not miss a beat when he took over and John is very qualified. They really know the definition of customer service .Honest, comparable market rates, and always willing to “work” you in.

    — Joe Z. —
  • Car made a weird noise. The week before it was service at VW for a fortune. Decided to look online for something more reasonable, and found Greg.

    I called, 10min later I was there, he found the problem in 5min, a piece of the motor was broken.

    I left for 10days left my car with him, and everything was done when I came back. he emailed me the price. It was inexpensive, maybe $250. VW charges me $190 just for “checking” my car and not even doing a damn thing to it.
    Greg even replaced a dead light bulb.

    Since I emailed him when I have a problem, and we fix a time convenient and to me and him so I dont have to wait, and PROBLEMS ARE SOLVED.

    AWESOME service, TRUSTED and HONEST person.

    — Stephanie B. —
  • If I could give more than five stars I would! Jonathan and Greg are by far the best mechanics in the Bay Area! I had a Lexus that needed work done and they made sure everything was done perfectly! Thank you Jonathan and Greg for awesome service!

    — Nicole K. —
  • I have been taking my cars to Frank’s for 26 years. The number of years as a customer pretty much says it all. I have never been unhappy with the service, nor have I ever had to bring a car back because the work wasn’t done correctly.

    Integrity and honesty, served up with a great sense of humor. You won’t be disappointed if you give them a try.

    — Jeanie E. —
  • I’ve been taking my 2001 VW Beetle to Greg since we moved here about 1.5 years ago. He’s great and I highly recommend him. He’s done small stuff and large repairs – I like that I can count on him to be thorough and bring things to my attention. I appreciate his honesty too – sometimes he’ll find things and decide that it doesn’t need to be fixed right away so he’ll keep an eye on it for a while. I would definitely recommend him.

    — Erin W. —
  • My wife and I have been taking our cars to Greg at Frank’s FCS for nearly 10 years, and he’s never once steered us wrong. There’s a reason this guy is always busy – he’s honest, knowledgeable and a generally good guy. I recently became in need of some work on my 1999 M3, and there was nobody else I even thought of calling.

    — Dean W. —
  • Nice guy. Took care of me. Reasonable price. Delivered when promised.

    — Ozzy D. —
  • I have been going to Frank’s Foreign Car Service for over 20 years. I started with Joe and Shadi, then Joe and Greg, and now Greg. It is a nice feeling to go to a mechanic that you can trust. Greg will show me the old part he replaced and explain what happened. I never have to wonder if the work was actually done, like I have from dealerships. Greg will inform me of future repairs to expect and won’t say “let’s replace it right now” like a dealership does. He is honest and will say “it’s a hairline crack that will start leaking in the long run, so let’s just keep an eye on it.” I drop my car off before he opens. I receive a call by mid morning with the estimate and explanation. By the end of the day my car is waiting for me.

    — Erika B. —
  • If you have a sick Volkswagen (like my awful 2005 Jetta) or other foreign car, go see Greg at Frank’s Foreign Car Service. I have been there alot for regular services and more serious stuff – he is great! He knows what he is doing, is very informative and constructive, knows folks in the dealerships, not too pricey….great guy. Did not charge me when I took the Jetta back a while ago when it broke down, but he helped me enormously. I even took my Chevy Trailblazer to Greg recently. He fixed most things and referred me to someone else to look into some serious problems (cos he does not specialize in Chevys). What a great service.

    — Mark C. —
  • Greg is great (Frank is retired btw). He is price competitive (I know, I called around). He explains the work he is going to do and what options you have. He will also show you the parts and the wear on the replaced components. I have used this place twice now and my coworker used them once. Highly recommended.
