Maintenance

Your vehicle’s maintenance can be as simple and straightforward as an oil service at your 3,000 mile mark, or it can include a larger service at milestones of 30k, 60k, 90k or 120k miles.

It’s understandable that maintenance and repairs on your car, truck, SUV or hybrid may be inconvenient, and yes, even spendy, but your vehicle is a means of getting you places. You rely heavily upon it…and may use it heavily.

Perhaps daily?
A few times daily?

It’s not always easy to remember that “use” creates “wear” on & in a vehicle’s systems.

These are a few of the services and parts involved in the wide world of maintenance:

30/60/90/120K service

Air filters

Belts

Brake flushes

Shocks

I take my car to Tom's because they are friendly and reliable. I appreciate they are able to "triage" and explain the maintenance needed to keep my car up and running. It's great they offer a shuttle in the morning and late afternoon to help the locals get back to work!
I once had to pull off the freeway due to my car acting oddly. I called Kandie at Tom's and she was able to explain what I needed to do. This helped me stay calm and confident in an otherwise stressful situation.

Tom’s is great. I took my vehicle in for a transmission issue. They were thorough with their diagnostic and communicated my options every step of the way. Honest and reliable service.

Everyone at Tom's cares about delivering great, expert service and keeping your car or truck in excellent mechanical condition. I have a 2001 Yukon XL which is a 3/4 ton towing vehicle and has been serviced at Tom's for 14 years. It has 187,000 miles on it, and I credit their commitment to excellent service and workmanship for the vehicle's longevity. They are the best in the business, and we are super fortunate to have them in West Seattle.

Tom's Automotive is open and honest. They have a friendly staff and are helpful in getting answers that work for the budget. I never feel pressured to do something that I don't want to do and they are willing to present options. Thanks, Tom's!
