At Alternative Automotive, 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. Alternative Automotive aims to secure your peace of mind in a different way: with our range of car care solutions for out of warranty vehicles in Escondido, CA. 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 Alternative Automotive will take care of your out of warranty vehicle and keep your peace of mind intact.

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 Escondido, CA. As part of our peace of mind package, Alternative Automotive 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.

Regular Inspections
An ounce of prevention, as the old saying goes, is worth a pound of cure. That's the approach Alternative Automotive 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.

First experience with Alternative Automotive was a great one. My car broke down and Daniel and the team had me in and out in no time and back on the road. They were very professional and honest to work with. I will definitely be back next time I need service for my autos.

Crazy noise and then smell burning rubber, never good. Got it towed to Alternative Automotive and they diagnosed, fixed and got it back to me for less than I expected! I trust them.
