The Speedway Chevrolet service team includes (L to R): Jeff Cantrell, Russell Pearson, Barry Bowles, Jake Tudor and Kyle Flores.
In these economic times, keeping up with your vehicle’s service and maintenance program is more important than ever before. According to Speedway Chevrolet service manager Jeff Cantrell, “We are doing all we can to help customers maintain and service their automobiles as economically as possible.”
The dealership is helping Chevy owners utilize more repair and maintenance options. “We’re not cutting any corners, but we are looking at all the alternatives and solutions available to keeping a vehicle operating properly. We want customers to feel comfortable bringing their vehicles to us for service,” says Cantrell.
Speedway honors all extended warranties, whether purchased from the dealership, an independent, or a bank or credit union. This may not be the best time for you personally to consider buying a new car, but it could be a great time to look at purchasing a service contract for your current vehicle – at a small percentage of the cost of a new or used vehicle.
All cars and trucks require regularly scheduled check-ups to make sure parts are in working order, worn-out or damaged parts are replaced, and fluids are at the correct levels. Speedway’s auto mechanics are Chevrolet certified repair specialists and know what it takes to keep your vehicle running safely and smoothly. If your car needs service or a scheduled periodic maintenance check-up, it is best to make an appointment. You may call Speedway or schedule an appointment online at www.speedwaychevy.com.
The parts that make up your car or truck are all interrelated. They work together as one unit to provide you with safe, reliable transportation. If you ignore or put off maintenance, it could lead to big trouble down the road. Neglecting even simple routine maintenance such as changing your vehicle’s oil or checking the coolant can lead to poorer fuel economy, unreliability, or a costly breakdown. It could also invalidate your warranty.
Speedway Chevrolet offers a full range of auto repair and maintenance services. These include oil changes, brake inspections and repairs, shocks and struts, tires, alignment, climate control, preventive maintenance, performance exhaust, and batteries. The qualified technicians on duty will help you schedule maintenance, repairs or other services.
Your vehicle represents a significant investment, and the part you take in maintaining it will help protect your investment. Scheduled service will extend the life of your car or truck and preserve its value. It may also help you avoid costly repair work in the future. When your vehicle is running like a top, you enjoy its performance, safety and increased fuel efficiency.
Speedway’s service department also offers complete auto detailing services, with five packages to choose from.
The commercial service department at Speedway Chevrolet is headed by Barry Bowles. Technicians are factory-trained for GM, Isuzu, Alison transmissions, and Workhorse for both RV and commercial chassis. They provide services in the shop (for light-duty trucks), and they service everything from small vehicles to medium duty to motor homes, gas and diesel powered. Pick-up and delivery services are available.
All fleet service – from one or two vehicles to several – is welcomed, and customers are taken care of in a prompt manner, because Speedway knows that an inoperable vehicle is costing you money. You can even call Speedway Chevrolet to arrange for towing services if your vehicle is stranded.
Speedway’s service department is open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The shop is closed on Sunday. Call today or go online to schedule your next service appointment.
