Routine Service Doesn’t Mean Basic!

Routine Service Doesn’t Mean Basic!

  Your Car Needs Attention People often ask our technician, “How do you keep a car like mine past 100,000 miles?” It’s a good question, and one that we wish more people were asking. We tell them, “Obey routine maintenance.” Routine is treated as a dirty word. To the average customer, it sounds like we’re saying ‘banal,’ ‘every day, or ‘easy.’ But to our team, routine means ‘steady,' ‘consistent,’ and ‘competent.’ It means keeping regular intervals. Every day, we see cars that are brought to our shop damaged. There’s a level of neglect involved. That sounds harsh and mean, but that’s what we’re facing; we’re trying to turn back time on automobiles that have been damaged by the constant assault of daily driving.  Problems don’t start big; they often start small and are very hard to detect. As the problem grows, it affects whole systems. That&rsq ... read more

Things Are Cooling Down; Time To Check Your Vehicle!

Things Are Cooling Down; Time To Check Your Vehicle!

Image by Stefan Schweihofer from Pixabay How has the year been for you?  With Autumn finally here and winter swiftly arriving, now is the perfect time to check in on your vehicle. How is it running? When was your last service?    The local weather is particularly hard on European vehicles. The hot and wet Florida months can cause damage and stress on your car that isn’t readily visible. It's important to make sure everything is in good working order at intervals. The start of winter is an excellent interval.   A digital vehicle inspection (DVI) can ensure that your car is running smoothly and identify any potential issues before they become bigger problems. It comes fre ... read more

Why You Need To Get A Safety Inspection!

Why You Need To Get A Safety Inspection!

Photo by Chad Kirchoff on Unsplash Why You Need To Get A Safety Inspection! Is everything going good with your car right now? We genuinely hope it is, and all is well with your vehicle for many miles to come.    People tend to anthropomorphize their vehicles over time, and think of it with a gender, a name, and even an identity. But unlike a person or a pet, your car doesn’t self-heal. It requires adjustment, attunement, replenishing, and care to be well. When it’s ill, it’s like a good friend being ill– you want it taken care of properly, by caring hands.   It’s essential to know that problems you can’t even see are growing and developing in your car. It’s not an IF but a ... read more

Back To School We Go: How To Get Your European Vehicle Ready For Back To School Season

Back To School We Go: How To Get Your European Vehicle Ready For Back To School Season

Photo by Lisanto 李奕良 on Unsplash   A new school year is upon us! We can almost hear the sound of children's laughter as they run around on the playground. Unfortunately, kids also run into the street-- retrieving lost sports balls, chasing each other, or just making reckless decisions as they head home. It’s a good time to remember the importance of awareness on the road, and the responsibility of good maintenance.   For new drivers who may be unaware, August and September aren't even the worst months for pedestrian accidents (that's November, December, and January, when kids are super distracted by the holiday season). This is the month where we find ourselves hitting the brakes the most, as both driver ... read more

How To Protect Your Vehicle In The Florida Rainy Season

How To Protect Your Vehicle In The Florida Rainy Season

Photo by Tom Morbey on Unsplash   The Florida rainy season is upon us. Our heaviest rains and most violent storms occur in the months of July, August, and September, when the summer sun is at its most violent and the cooling change of the season begins to create storms.    The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has predicted 2022 to be a particularly violent rainy season, with 14-221 named storms predicted. That’s a lot of water under our chassis. Coral Springs drivers have natural worries about how to navigate violent weather ahead. Here are our thoughts for new arrivals to the Cape Coral area about how to navigate rain season:   Rust comes for Florida cars, particularly for cars in coas ... read more

What To Look For When Purchasing A BMW

What To Look For When Purchasing A BMW

Photo by Jon Koop on Unsplash BMW is one of the favorite luxury brands that we service at USP Euro Car Care. They are powerful, elegant, luxurious vehicles with gorgeous aesthetics. BMWs offer a terrific return on investment if you take care of them properly and choose wisely. But like any car, there are questions you should ask before purchasing a new or used BMW. You want to pick a vehicle that’s best suited to your lifestyle in the Coral Springs area. BMWs do not make good starter cars for a family. They make great cars for the family that has grown and is ready to enjoy the finer things in life and for the driver who is thoughtful and careful about how they maintain their BMW.    Here are four essential factors to consider ... read more

How Do Correct Diagnostics Work?

How Do Correct Diagnostics Work?

Photo by Sten Rademaker on Unsplash What Is A Vehicle Diagnostic? Your auto repair shop is not too different from your doctor’s office! You might think of your auto repair shop, and its auto mechanics like you do a doctor’s office and its doctors. Doctors and medical technicians need special education and certifications to ensure the public they are qualified to handle the job; auto mechanics are the same!   You might have heard of “ASE-Certifications” before. These are certification courses and tests that auto mechanics and service advisors go through to test their knowledge of cutting-edge industry standards and vehicle requirements. Like medica ... read more

😮 Not all oil changes are created equally!

😮 Not all oil changes are created equally!

As a car owner ─ oil changes + routine service work, hopefully, are a part of your routine to keep the car safe rolling. They are second nature, yet always pop up at the most opportune times. Whether you take your car to the local quick-lube chain, OEM dealership, or specialty European repair shop -- there are huge differences. When choosing a place to repair or service your vehicle the following variables are always in play: technician skill level, pricing, oil/parts quality, and convenience. When it comes to European vehicles, these attributes provide valuable insight into the quality of service you are receiving.  There are always exceptions to every rule, but generally speaking, the shops that promise you a “30-minute oil change”, should be the last on your list on where you chose your Volkswagen, Audi, Porsche, BMW, or Mercedes Benz service. While there are some “quick lube” shops, that do excellent work ─ these shops work on a volume model. The more ... read more
