Expired Warranty Care

At Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc., we understand the peace of mind that comes from your car being covered by its manufacturer warranty. Unfortunately, warranties don't last forever - and once they expire, it can be very expensive to get maintenance or repairs done at a dealership. Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc. aims to secure your peace of mind in a different way: with our range of car care solutions for out of warranty vehicles in Coralville, IA. We provide warranty-approved services for all major brands of cars and we don't stop when the warranty does. Read on to find out about all the ways Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc. will take care of your out of warranty vehicle and keep your peace of mind intact.

Regular Inspections
An ounce of prevention, as the old saying goes, is worth a pound of cure. That's the approach Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc. takes when maintaining your vehicle. Simply bring your car or truck in for a comprehensive inspection once your manufacturer warranty ends, and we'll create a profile of it based on its current condition, known issues with make/model, and the way that you use it. From there we'll recommend a regular care schedule based on mileage or time elapsed so that you're fully aware of everything that's going on with your ride. At each appointment we'll discuss any issues you may have had since your last visit and check all your vehicle's major systems for faults. Problems are often simpler (and cheaper!) to remedy if they are caught early. Should a problem arise between appointments, we'll get your car back to perfect health with the same manufacturer-approved parts we use for the duration of your warranty.

Fluid and Filters
Quality fluid and filters are extremely valuable allies in the fight against out of warranty repair bills. If you can keep fluids, filters, and the systems they service in good condition, you're far less likely to end up broken down at the side of the road with looming expenses in Coralville, IA. As part of our peace of mind package, Central Automotive Service & Repair, Inc. will provide you with free reminders via phone calls and text messages or emails letting you know when it's time for new fluids and filters. If you plan on keeping and driving your car for years and even decades to come, we provide a filter/fluid package that guarantees you the finest quality products. It's just another way that we take care of the little things so you can concentrate on enjoying the drive with perfect peace of mind.

  • -Barbara A.

    Everyone here was extremely friendly and helpful. My daughter and I felt very welcome and they took care of us in a timely fashion. They even recommended a place where I could purchase less expensive tires. I will be back! Thank you!


  • -Ashley L.

    I will not take my car anywhere else. They are trustworthy, fast, reliable, affordable, and they do not take advantage of you. They really value you here!


  • -James L.

    Central Automotive is the only place I will go. Mike always finds time to fit me in no matter what the issue and keeps me and my fleet on the road. The team of mechanics can handle every situation from oil changes to full engine rebuilds and technical electrical issues. The staff is always friendly and most importantly honest. They understand my schedule and will even go pick up the cars or give me a loaner. Finding an automotive shop that you can trust is hard to find but I always get honest answers on what is worth fixing and what should wait and there is never unnecessary extras or running up the bill. 10 stars wasn't an option or they would get that.


  • -Joe D.

    Best place to get maintenance done! Also the customer service is great.


  • -Rob S.

    Great place to get your vehicle diagnosed and repaired.


  • -M. Schell

    Knowledgeable, friendly, honest service. Will continue to visit for service. I wouldn't trust anyone else with my vehicle. They even gave me a lift home on the other side of town while doing my repairs. Great place, great people!


  • -Theresa C.

    My experience was amazing from the start. I called in about a nightmare of an oil leak. I was anticipating them being able to get me in by the afternoon at best, if not the next day, but Doc kindly answered the phone and told me to bring the car in as soon as I could. I brought it in an hour or two later, and they diagnosed the problem in ten minutes. Everyone was very communicative about the issue, and one member of the team even offered to give me a ride to work as it was going to take a couple of hours. Mike ensured that my car would be repaired by the end of the day, even with the several other projects already in line. It was just extremely refreshing to have honest, genuine, caring people providing top quality service. You can bet I'll be going there for my automotive needs from now on. Thank you!!
