Fact: An Independent Mechanic CAN Do Routine Maintenance and Repairs on Your Car Without Voiding Your Warranty!

Misconception: Your car's dealership needs to conduct your factory recommended maintenance in order to keep your warranty in effect. In fact, this is NOT true! (You can learn more about this at the FTC's website.)

What is true: Your warranty is safe and secure in the hands of Yates Automotive, an independent automotive service center.

  • Save Time: Take all of your cars to one location close to home. We service all makes and models.
  • Convenient: We're conveniently located next to Braddock Rd. Metro and we provide complimentary Lyft/Uber credit to get you home or back to work.
  • Honest & Dependable: Serving Alexandria since 1964 and Angie's List Super Service Award winner.
  • Bonus: A FREE hand car wash and vacuum with every service.

Ensure maximum miles without major break-downs with routine car maintenance at 30,000, 60,000, and 90,000 miles. Scheduled maintenance allows us to do a point-by-point vehicle inspection, tune-up (spark plugs, filters, etc.), oil change, and transmission maintenance. Depending on your miles and the vehicle, we may change belts, re-time your vehicle, and test the battery. 

Cost per vehicle can vary depending on inspection, so please call us for vehicle-specific service information and pricing.
