Bring your vehicle into “the masters” at Wayside Garage in Monterey, CA. Your vehicle is an important investment that you want and need to protect. Nothing puts a halt to your daily schedule like a repair need or a breakdown. We could tell you that we can fix whatever vehicle malfunction that you have at an accelerated speed and a reasonable rate, and that would all be true! But we’d rather focus first on the services that allow you to avoid those costly auto repairs and breakdowns. Who wants to deal with engine breakdowns and system malfunctions when they don’t have to? Our customers know that they don’t have to worry about them when they follow our quality service plan. Many drivers think that repairs and breakdowns are a necessary part of vehicle ownership. That’s not true at all. We understand that repair needs can happen because of simple wear-and-tear on the road, but that does not have to be the rule. That can be the exception! We handle every service, from routine maintenance to complex transmission services, with the same excellence. Ask our satisfied customers.
