Car Care: Auto Maintenance Services

Thomsons Auto Repair Inc. in Kentwood, MI 49508 is a full-service preventative maintenance and auto repair center, providing comprehensive car care services for your domestic or import vehicle to keep it running at full power. For questions, contact us at 616-281-5150 or send us an email, and our experts will help determine what needs to be done.



Our basic auto maintenance services include:

Check Engine Light
No one likes to see their car's "Check Engine" light come on. The light could mean a costly problem, like a bad catalytic converter, or it could be something minor, like a loose gas cap. At Thomsons Auto Repair Inc., we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 616-281-5150 or stop by the shop for our expert assistance.

Factory Recommended Service/Maintenance
Automotive and auto parts come with a factory recommended service and maintenance schedule. The manufacturer will tell you how often to service or replace an auto part. At Thomsons Auto Repair Inc., we offer factory recommended service/maintenance. Our highly skilled auto mechanics offer comprehensive knowledge and experience. At Thomsons Auto Repair Inc., all your factory recommended service/maintenance needs are handled with the latest diagnostic equipment. Remember, we work on all American and imported vehicles (either diesel or gas engines).

30/60/90K Mileage Maintenance
As time goes by, various auto repair and maintenance needs come up at different intervals. Most manufacturers recommend car maintenance in intervals of 30,000 miles. This is the 30/60/90K mile schedule (issued by the manufacturers to car owners). Trust the experts at Thomsons Auto Repair Inc. to keep you on schedule, and help you preserve the condition of the vehicle, optimize its performance, and increase its resale value. The 30/60/90K service includes the following:

  • Fluid replacements
  • Oil and Filter changes
  • Tire rotation, spin balance, and pressure adjustments
  • Inspection of parts and systems - gears, tires, brake pads, belts, hoses, etc.
  • With higher mileage: spark plugs, belts, timing belts when applicable

Oil, Lube, and Filter
To keep running smoothly, your car highly relies on oil, lube, and oil filters. Oil helps in lubricating, cooling, and cleaning the internal engine components. With time, motor oil becomes contaminated. Your car needs an oil, lube, and filter change every three months (or 3,000 miles). When it is time for a lube, oil, or filter change, take your vehicle to Thomsons Auto Repair Inc. in Kentwood, MI 49508.

Hoses
Hoses transfer coolant and antifreeze throughout the engine's cooling system (including the radiator). Sooner or later, your vehicle's hoses will dry out and crack. When you are ready for a replacement you can count on Thomsons Auto Repair Inc. for all your vehicle's repair needs.

You not only have to get the hoses replaced with quality ones but you should have the work done by experts. To have the hoses replaced by auto cooling and heating experts - and get your car driving right - visit Thomsons Auto Repair Inc. today. The mechanics at Thomsons Auto Repair Inc. will thoroughly inspect your car's hoses; replace all worn hoses; and adjust the installed hoses.

Belts
A fan belt, also known as a drive belt, is a belt connecting your car's engine to the front mounted accessories. The fan belt rotates the water pump and engine fan, which maintains a cool environment for the engine and its components. Sooner or later, your vehicle's fan belts will dry out and crack. When you are ready for a replacement you can count on Thomsons Auto Repair Inc. for all your vehicle's repair needs.

You not only have to get the belts replaced with quality ones but you should have the work done by experts. To have the belts replaced by auto cooling and heating experts - and get your car driving right - visit Thomsons Auto Repair Inc. today. The mechanics at Thomsons Auto Repair Inc. will thoroughly inspect your car's belts; replace all worn belts; and adjust the installed belts.

What People Say About Us


  • -Dana J.

    Great customer service, always making sure customers are satisfied. They take time to show and explain the repairs. Very down to earth family oriented. Definitely NOT your typical auto shop. Clean bathroom, and beautiful, nice option for snacks or drink and free fresh popcorn while you wait!


  • -Ryan L.

    If I could give more than 5 stars I would. These guys are absolutely great!! They do not nickel and dime you, and they are very honest with their work and recommendations. Had some exhaust work done, and I thought it would take them 3-4 days, judging by how many cars were in the parking lot...nope...done the next day in the afternoon. I was very impressed...price was as quoted with no additional "surprises" in the repair...I found my forever repair place...Thanks to all at Thomson's!!!


  • -Alexander W.

    I took my 2009 Jeep Wrangler into Thomson's, with a whole shopping list of things that went wrong with the vehicle. Shawn and his team worked tirelessly to make sure that my vehicle was fixed properly and quickly, to accommodate my timelines. The customer service was outstanding, and their knowledge behind their work is even better. I could not be more satisfied with the work they have done, and I would recommend them before any other shop around!


  • -Rob P.

    They're always very helpful and very knowledgeable. The prices are reasonable and they're very friendly. They also always explain exactly what's wrong with your car or what they have to do. I would recommend them to anyone.

    They're honest and get the work done when they tell you it will be done. Toyota had issues and I was able to get car fixed at more reasonable price than dealership and get on road faster!!!!


  • -Terry C.

    My wife and I have heard a lot of positive remarks about Thomsons auto repair. I just took my Windstar in for a few repairs and I am pleased with the results. Their price is reasonable and the staff are very informative and friendly. We have further repairs to be done on our vehicles and you can bet we will be taking our vehicles to Thomsons for repairs in the future. I would recommend Thomsons Auto Repairs to everyone we know.
