Alex was extremely kind and thorough in his work. I am very pleased!
Alex was late due to traffic - this a big city and that stuff happens - but he kept me informed (the dealer doesn't do that, to they?) and it was not a problem. He was quick, clean and efficient, and his service was 70% cheaper than the dealer's price. As part of the service, he did a overview of maintenance needs on the car (none) and spotted a minor repair I wouldn't have caught. Let's review - certified mechanics, working on *your* schedule, at *your* place, at a fraction of the cost the dealers charge. Brilliance.

Having a mechanic come to you is such a novel idea; put the money in the hands that deserve it, ie. the mechanics not the shops. Cost of service & parts was a decent percentage cheaper than I'd pay taking / towing the vehicle elsewhere. Max exceeded my expectations both professionally and personally -- a tough combination in his field.

Carlos was very knowledgeable and did the job right on schedule. One item needs clarification; If your company recommends you replace something and it turns out that it does not need replacement. You should not replace it just because you erroneously recommended it. and if you do, you need to reimburse customer for your error. I think Carlos was doing what he was instructed to do thus not sure how to avoid your "wrong" recommendation or keep a job from getting done/installed unnecessarily.

Alternator Repair Service

How does an alternator help your car run?

The alternator is the component that charges the battery in your car. When you use electrical components in your car (stereo, lights, etc.), the battery loses power. The alternator recharges the battery, replenishing the lost battery power. The alternator is located in the engine compartment. If the alternator is not working properly, your car will only stay running for as long as the battery has power stored. Once the battery loses power, your car will not start. Normally, a malfunctioning alternator will turn on the battery warning light or will have a low volt gauge reading.

Alternator

Before repairing the alternator:

The mechanic should check the entire charging system before installing a new alternator, including checking battery cables for corrosion and the condition of the battery.

Steps when replacing an alternator:

  • Inspect entire charging system (battery, cables, alternator).
  • Inspect the drive belts.
  • Test alternator output.
  • Remove and replace alternator if found to be faulty.
  • Re-test alternator output.

Our recommendation for alternator replacements:

Ask your mechanic to inspect the condition of the charging system during every major service. The mechanic should also clean and tighten the battery cables during every major service.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Alternator?

  • Dead battery or battery will not hold a charge.
  • Dim lights.
  • Battery warning light is on.

Why repairing your alternator is important:

Your alternator charges your battery, which powers the electronics in your vehicle, such as the radio and the air conditioning. The battery is also needed to turn on your vehicle. A malfunctioning alternator will not charge your car’s battery, and your vehicle will eventually run out of battery life and not be able to start.
