Always a great experience coming to Grand Imports. Their honesty and quality of service has been great. Been coming here for close to five years now and don't plan to go anywhere else. I highly recommend them. Steve and Havilah

I've been using Grand Imports for regular maintenance on my Honda vehicles for 11 years. I can usually get my car in promptly and it saves me money and I know it's done right. Ian, Misty, Liz and the crew are always friendly and helpful. It's a pleasure to do business with them. Lin
Road Trip Checklist
1. Inspect your tires. Tires should be properly inflated to the pressure listed in your owner’s manual, sidewalls should be clear without checking or cracks, and there should be at least 1/16-inch of tread left. Also make sure your spare is inflated.
2. Check your cooling system. Many modern cars often have long-life coolant engineered to last up to 100,000 miles. Older cars and RVs need to have the coolant changed more frequently. Make sure the radiator is full (check while engine is cold), and the overflow tank should be filled to its indicator line. All hoses should be firm and dry. If the level is low, try using distilled water to prevent scale and mineral build-up.
3. Check your oil. Many owners forget to check the level between oil changes. Make sure your oil level is full and for longer drain intervals switch to a top-quality, ester-based synthetic. Also note that you can add a quart of synthetic to conventional oils without issue.
4. Check your transmission fluid level. Most automatics have a dipstick clearly labelled in the engine compartment. Fluid should be full and clean (clear red, not brown or black). Manual transmissions should be serviced at intervals recommended in your owner’s manual. Also ensure that the fluid you select meets the specifications for your vehicle.
5. Test your battery. Extreme weather is hard on batteries. If your battery is several years old, have it checked. Be sure terminals are clean and tight. Test it yourself or bring your car into our shop for a charging system test. There is nothing worst than being stuck in the middle of nowhere with a dead battery!
