We are taking every necessary requirement to keep our facilities and employees safe. We are also seeing insurance companies
paying out much quicker during these times, so get your vehicle in now and let’s get it covered !!
Can I take my car to any body shop for insurance
YES! You can use any body shop you want. You do not need to use the body shop that your insurance recommended. The choice is 100% yours. And that’s the law, in a lot of cases letting the insurance company choose the repair shop has benefits for the insurance company because they have negotiated lower rates and many times parts discounts with those collision shops. You should always use the shop you want, and our team at Auto Resources is here to help with your body shop needs.

Am I responsible for maintenance on my leased automobile
Even if you lease a vehicle, you are responsible for all maintenance and repairs required to keep the vehicle in good working order as outlined in the owner’s manual.
What parts need replacing under my warranty
Check your owner’s manual. It will give you all of the information you need regarding specific parts and service intervals. Make sure to read it thoroughly and note any exceptions or severe service notations. Warranties are there to protect the consumer, but you must follow the requirements.
Do you use after market Parts
Some are manufactured by the same supplier and may even be warrantied longer than original equipment parts. Aftermarket parts supplied by CARQUEST meet or exceed manufacturers’ specifications.
How often does a timing belt need replacing
A timing belt is a part of an internal combustion engine that controls the timing of the engine’s valves. Your timing belt should be changed every 50,000-70,000 miles, however, every manufacturer is different. You should consult your owner’s manual to determine the correct replacement interval.
Does brake fluid need replacing
The average driver uses their brakes 75,000 times per year and takes for granted that they’ll work every time. Today’s brake systems are hydraulic and use brake fluid which is hydrophilic, meaning it can absorb moisture from the air. Once the hydraulic system has moisture in it, corrosion takes place and brake components fail. Brake fluid should be flushed periodically to keep corrosion under control. This procedure is not expensive and is included in many preventative maintenance schedules. Brake fluid should be handled with care. It will melt plastics and remove paint.
