Best Auto Repair Shop in Gilbert & Queen Creek, AZ

Driving down the road, you feel your car slow down. You press the gas a little more and get no response. You quickly look around for a way to coast out of traffic and make it to the side of the road without getting run into. Barely. As you sigh in relief that you are safe, you turn the key off, then try to start the car again. Ne-ne-ne-ne-ne-neh. Dang.

You try it again. Ne-ne-ne-ne-ne-neh. Dang. You try talking to the car. Maybe that will help. You pat it on the dash and say, “Now, come on, start for me. I really don’t want to take you to the auto repair shop.” Ne-ne-ne-ne-ne-neh. This time you sigh in frustration. Now what?

You know that when the tow truck gets there, the driver is going to ask you where to take it. You can take it to the auto repair service department at the dealer, but you know it’s going to cost you an arm and a leg to fix it. Then you think APA Total Car Care! Perfect. They have great service techs who know what they’re doing.

Why APA Total Car Care?

Sean Gordon has been working in the industry since the early 1990s. Sean and his wife Kelly bought an existing shop and turned it into the success it is today. Each technician in their family-owned shop puts their heart into the business and the work they do, just as if they owned it. And part of Sean & Kelly’s success is because they hire automotive technicians that are knowledgeable at fixing anything and everything, and they treat your car as if it were their own mother’s car.

At APA Total Car Care when you need a crank sensor, they’re not going to tell you that you need cam phasers – something you have to take half the engine apart to get to. To top it off, everyone that works in the shop is friendly and their goal is to get you back on the road as quickly as possible.

Additionally, if you want customizations to your vehicle – maybe a little more horsepower or sport suspension, they’ll do what they can within your budget to make it happen. And if they can’t do the work within your budget, they’ll tell you instead of selling and installing cheaper add-ons that won’t really accomplish what you’re looking for.

Auto Repair services in Gilbert & Queen Creek, Az

APA Total Car Care isn’t your typical shop. Most shops are set up for light work, such as brakes, steering and suspension work, oil changes, and the like. While we do all of that, we also do so much more. People in the areas of Gilbert, Queen Creek, Chandler, Tempe, and Mesa benefit from having a nearby shop that does it all. From diagnostics to replacing a simple sensor to a timing belt or head gasket, or even replacing an entire engine that is completely worn out, people from the East Valley area have their own one-stop-shop.

Models We Service:

Maybe you’ve never been here before. You wonder if you should bring your car here. You ask yourself, “Do they work on my car?” The short answer is, “Yes.” Our automotive technicians work on just about anything with wheels – even hybrids. APA will work on just about anything from domestics like Ford, Dodge, and Chevy, to Hyundai and Kia. The most common imports like Honda, Toyota, and Nissan, to German Vehicles like BMW, Mercedes, Audi, Volkswagen, and Range Rover. In addition, We also provide auto repair services for Powerstroke, Duramax, and Cummins diesel powertrains.

We have the latest diagnostic equipment to properly diagnose issues with your vehicles and, when required, the specialty tools required to fix the problem. We also have the ability to do vehicle computer programming and flash updates that are typically reserved for the dealerships.

We Use OE and OEM Parts:

“Yeah, but do you use the same quality parts as the dealer?” Yes, we do. We use OE (original equipment) and OEM (original equipment manufacturer) parts, including AC Delco, Motorcraft, and Valvoline. We make sure your car gets the best care while it is in our auto repair shop.

Whether you are here for auto repair on your personal vehicle, fleet services for your business vehicles, work done in our custom shop, an engine replacement, or a transmission replacement, we are sure to use only the highest quality parts. If you drive it, we fix it, and we fix it right – and we do it with a smile.

Okay, But What’s It Going to Cost Me?

The cost of repairs at any auto repair shop depends on the repair, the make and model of your vehicle, and the cost of the parts you need. We use an industry-standard repair guide with set time frames for each repair. There is actually a method to our pricing to make sure you pay a fair price for a professional auto repair.

APA Total Car Care Auto performs high-quality digital inspections on every vehicle that comes thru our Gilbert, AZ, or Queen Creek, AZ, shops. This inspection allows us to see what is going on with your car, a health report if you will, then we can cost out the individual jobs for you and send you an estimate for your approval to your phone via text or to your email. Should we find that you need additional work, then we’ll call you to authorize that work before we do it. While our technicians like to find everything before we start working, sometimes it is not possible to see if something else is worn or needed until we take it apart.

For example, if you need an oil pump, we might find that the rod bearings are worn – but not enough to start knocking – once we pull the oil pan. That is something we can’t see until we pull the pan. If that is the case, we’ll stop working until we receive direction from you.

Can Your Auto Repair Shop Fix My Car Today?

And, that’s the million-dollar question. If it’s something that takes a few hours, we try to get your car fixed on the same day. However, if we have to special order a part or if the job takes 14 hours, then chances are that it’ll be two or three days depending on the circumstance. You’ll find that to be true with any auto repair shop you go to.

We’ll also let you know an estimated time of repair when we call you with what we’ve found and the cost to repair it.
