It is all about you at JC Car Care & Tire that is why we strive for perfection and only settle for excellence.
JC Car Care is a full-service auto repair and preventive maintenance center. We have been performing our high quality and guaranteed auto repairs in the St. Charles area since 1987.
To keep families safe through reasonable, reliable, responsible auto repairs and through those repairs to develop strong, lasting relationships with our customers, their family members and friends.
Vehicles now days are built to go 250,000 to 300,000 miles with the proper maintenance. Our goal is to get you the most miles possible out of your vehicle. That is the only way to make the investment in your vehicle pay off.
We follow and recommend "Best Practices" when it comes to vehicle service and maintenance. These recommended service and maintenance standards come from the "Society of Automotive Engineers" These are the same engineers that designed your vehicle, and their recommendations are more stringent than what is recommended in your owners manual.
Please keep in mind two things when it comes to vehicle maintenance.
1) Vehicle manufacturers primary goal is to get you through the warranty period with a minimum of repairs. After the warranty is over and they have made their money from the sale of the vehicle and their money is made through financing the car and it is paid off, they want you to purchase another vehicle.
2) Fleet managers calculate the cost of vehicle maintenance into the total cost of purchasing a vehicle and by extending the maintenance the vehicle manufacturers can sell more cars and trucks to large corporations
It is important for you to understand that because of these two factors, it is in the dealers interest to extend maintenance. It is not in your best interest if you are the type of person that keeps your vehicle for a long time.
I have 300,000 miles on one of our vehicles. Most people start thinking about trading in their vehicle at around 100,000 to 150,000 miles. That means my wife and I have saved at least the cost of one car and possibly two. What could your family do with an extra $20,000 to $40,000? That does not include all the interest on the note or the increases on taxes and insurance.
The secret to long vehicle life is keeping all your vehicles fluids fresh and clean. We did not get 300,000 miles out of our vehicle by following the maintenance outlined in the owners manual. In fact we cut most of them in half but we definitely at least followed the Society of Automotive Engineers maintenance recommendations.
We offer MEET OR BEAT PRICING - if you want to bring your vehicle here - do not go anywhere else because of price. Bring in their estimate and we will meet it or beat it. Our goal is not to be the cheapest place to get your car fixed because we all know that you get what you pay for.
