When you bring your vehicle to Rick’s Automotive for auto repairs or maintenance, we promise to deliver honest answers and a job done right the first time, so you drive away with a smile. Our ASE Master certified technicians use the latest diagnostic equipment and the best quality parts and fluids, and we explain every service your car needs in terms you can understand. Our goal is to teach, not to sell. If you drive an import or domestic car, diesel pickup truck, hybrid, or high-end luxury vehicle in the Granada Hills area, we hope you’ll count on Rick’s for all your car care needs!
And don’t forget, we offer shuttle service to get you where you need to go while your car is at our shop.
Your suspension is what keeps your car stable while you are steering. If your ride is noticeably bumpier or rougher than it used to be, or if your vehicle pulls to one side during turns, or if the front or back of the car lurches forward when stopping, these are all signs your suspension system isn’t working properly and needs service. It is best to get any chassis, suspension, or alignment issues dealt with quickly as a failure of any of the components can be a major safety risk.
Automotive electrical systems and computer controls are very complex and constantly evolving. Our technicians are qualified to diagnose and repair your vehicle’s electrical system and computers, including circuits, fuses, wires, sensors, relays, and connectors, as well as your starting and charging systems. Call us at Rick’s Automotive if you’re experiencing dim headlights, malfunctioning signal lights, power window issues, or any other electrical or computer-related problems.
Maybe it seems obvious, but many drivers don’t recognize the importance of quality tires for vehicle safety. Tires are the only thing connecting your car to the road, and life-saving technologies like antilock brakes and electronic stability control cannot do their job if your tires don’t have a good grip on the pavement. At Rick’s Automotive we have a great selection of tires and tire-related services to fit your needs and budget. Make us your first stop when you’re looking for replacement tires.
A properly functioning heating and air conditioning system is essential to your comfort (especially when it tops 100 degrees in the Santa Clarita Valley) and, in some situations, your safety. Our mechanics can diagnose and fix all types of heating and A/C problems, including improper air temperature, low or no vent air flow, smells, windshield fogging, noises, and overheating. If you’re due for an air conditioning recharge, we can handle it quickly and get you back on the road, no sweat.
Your brakes are one of your vehicle’s most important safety elements, and it’s important to keep your braking system in good condition to protect yourself, your passengers, and other drivers on the road. Rick’s Automotive offers complete brake system services, from major brake repairs and part replacement to preventive maintenance to ensure all your braking components are in good working condition. If you suspect any issues with your brakes, don’t delay making an appointment.
Our technicians work on diesel powered cars and trucks and hybrid vehicles, including Mercedes diesels, Ford diesel pickups, BMW diesels, Volkswagen TDI vehicles, Prius, and all electric vehicles. You can count on us to be up-to-date on the latest diesel and hybrid technology, and provide you with the service you need to get the most from your diesel or hybrid vehicle. We recognize that today’s diesels and modern hybrids aren’t like those of the past, and we treat them like the state-of-the-art machinery they are.
