If my car is under warranty at the dealership, can I still bring my car to your shop for regular service and not lose my warranty?

Yes, absolutely. You are protected and have every right to take your car to any auto repair mechanic for routine service and it will have zero affect on your warranty at the dealership. This is protected by Federal Law with the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act (15 U.S.C. 2302).

This federal law regulates warranties for the protection of consumers. The essence of the law concerning aftermarket auto parts is that a vehicle manufacturer may not condition a written or implied warranty on the consumers using parts or services which are identified by brand, trade, or corporate name unless the parts or service are provided free of charge. The law means that the use of an aftermarket part alone is not cause for denying the warranty. However, the law’s protection does not extend to aftermarket parts in situations where such parts actually caused the damage being claimed under the warranty. The law states in relevant part: No warrantor of a consumer product may condition his written or implied warranty of such product on the consumers using, in connection with such product, any article or service (other than article or service provided without charge under the terms of the warranty) which is identified by brand, trade or corporate name… (15 U.S.C. 2302(C)).

How often do I need an oil change?

  • 5 star ratingWas recommended by a friend to check out Genesis Automotive when we got an outrageous quote from the dealership for a water pump replacement.  Not only did they replace the water pump but they replaced some belts and seals that the dealership hadn't even mentioned.  It was all done for about half of what the dealer quoted.  Thank you Carl and Glenn!!  I found my forever mechanics 😉

    5 star ratingHonest mechanics? Yes!! Carl, the owner, actually shows you the used or damaged parts that were in your car. He always carefully explains their function and why they needed to replace them. Also, they never push for any extra services. I'm never going anywhere else... Genesis is an outstanding auto service shop!!

    5 star ratingCame here after purchasing a 2002 Toyota 4Runner and wanted to have the car looked at thoroughly by a professional, but was skeptical about finding a good mechanic. I was referred to Genesis by a guy who does the tint on my vehicles and was told Carl is the guy to go to when it comes to Toyota. With that being said I called them up and set up a time for me to drop my truck off.

    5 star ratingGenesis Automotive is fantastic. The owner of the business, Carl, worked at Lexus and Toyota dealers for two decades, so I receive the same level of service here as I do at the Lexus dealer, except I can afford to eat now.

    I have a 2006 Lexus RX400

    Carl and his team are skilled, honest, and organized. I am female, young, and clueless about cars. I could be easily taken advantage of but Carl is always honest and works with me to find affordable solutions for when problems arise. I love the whole team here.

    I brought my car in because I had issues starting the car and figured it might be the alternator not charging the battery since i just replaced it at Costco a couple months ago.  I was able to have AAA jump start the car and drove it to have Carl take a look at it.  Turns... read more

I brought it to Genesis based on a referral from a family member because I don't have a mechanic that I like. They were super helpful! The garage was clean, the technicians were friendly and talked to me like a person, not just a girl! They fixed my car up, they did not try to sell me a ton of extra stuff.   I've gone back three times since then for various maintenance. They are consistent. I'm so relieved to find... read more

They were. Picked up my car and payed a little under the estimate.  Pleasantly surprised, honesty is hard to come by in this field but that's what you get here. Highly recommend this place. Any future problems I know where to bring my car.

You would definitely at least go to Carl and Glenn, they are the best, always have room for your vehicle, honest, friendly, trustworthy, professionals and will get your ride going again.

    5 star ratingEverybody needs a mechanic like Carl or Glenn.  

    They are honest, easy to talk to, hard working and most of all - THEY ARE ASE CERTIFIED MASTER MECHANICS and they are the ONLY person who will touch your car. As opposed to big shops or dealership that have ONE master mechanic and a bunch of young guys who will be the ones actually doing work on your car.

    Try these guys out - you won't go to anybody else.
