Whether you have a Volkswagen, Audi, BMW, Mini Cooper, Porsche, or Mercedes-Benz, the ASE certified technicians at Rick’s are ready to assist you. Serving Marcus Hook, Pennsylvania, and southeastern Pennsylvania, we are located at 7 11th Street. Call us at (610) 485-1133 or use our convenient online scheduling system to make an appointment for Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. or Friday 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. We look forward to serving you by maintaining your German car.
The owner’s manual for most German cars refers you straight to a dealership for parts, maintenance, and service. In fact, many general mechanics won’t even attempt working on one of these vehicles. At Rick’s Auto Repair, however, we specialize in performing the work necessary to keep your German car on the road for years to come. We use excellent equipment, modern tools, and back all work with our 24-month/24,000-mile warranty, even offering you a free loaner car while yours is being repaired. Operating since 1989, we are a family-owned business. It matters to us that you entrust us with your vehicle.
Many German vehicles are designed to be luxury or performance cars, just what you always wanted, your dream car. While their features are great, you may not realize until after your purchase has been finalized that your car will need some special attention. Our certified automotive technicians can help take the stress out of German car ownership. Our state-of-the-art equipment enables us to efficiently diagnose your vehicle’s issues. This is important because, as fabulous as they are, the German models are known to have a few unique quirks. For example, how do you know if a light is bad or if you have an often-seen wiring issue? Answer: You don’t have to know because we do. When should your oil be changed? Recommendations are different depending upon the motor your car has and whether it is turbo, supercharged, etc., and cabin air filters need changing at regular intervals, too. Additionally, tire selection, installation, and tread checking are crucial to the proper performance of your German car. If your tires don’t “match,” your transmission will likely shift improperly. For some models, a match between all four tires, not just the two on each axle, is required. One call to Rick’s Auto Service, (610) 485-1133, or use of our online scheduling system can put you at ease and take the complications out of maintaining or repairing your German car.
