We work very hard to overcome the stigma of other maintenance facilities. Lots of companies concentrate on selling as many products or services as they can get the consumer to buy every time a customer comes in. Not so at Kwik Kar Vista Ridge. Any employee selling a service unnecessarily is subject to termination on the spot. We are independently owned and operated with a large investment in land, building, and equipment. We want “customers for life”.

We make recommendations based on manufacturer’s maintenance recommendations of mileage or abnormal wear and tear to help you protect your warranty. If you request, you can have a comprehensive service review that you can see and touch on your vehicle before repairs or maintenance are performed. We view this as our opportunity to give you the options that you desire in what is often a confusing and mentally shaking experience. Many times these occurrences are unexpected. Let us give you as many options as possible to meet your needs.
