It’s been said, “It’s cheaper to maintain them than it is to fix them.” A car is like most things in life; if neglected they will deteriorate, become unreliable, break down, and put you in a bad situation. At GermanTech MotorWorks we can’t stress the importance of your plan enough. Do you want to sell the car next month? Do you want to make the car last just two more years? Do you want the car to make it to 300k miles? Do you want your car to make 500whp and be a daily driver? These are all questions that every car owner should know and share with us. We want to build you the most optimal plan to achieve the goals you have in mind. The worst thing you can do is to put off maintenance and problems until they pile up into a list that takes thousands of dollars to rebuild. Why? Because then you’re stuck with a car that is in shambles and is also worth absolutely nothing to potential buyers as a result. Let us help you keep it maintained so that everything works as designed regardless of the number of miles on the odometer. By mapping out the required maintenance and heading off the common issues with your model, you will save thousands in repairs that may have been preventable in the first place. We also have financing available if needed. This is usually still much more affordable than buying a new car.


In a perfect world, all good things would last forever. That said, we all know that’s not how life works. The next best thing is to know that you have a team of trained experts to help you with your problems when they do arise. Reliable people looking out for your best interest and doing quality work at a reasonable price. Any repairs performed by GermanTech MotorWorks also carry a two year warranty on parts and workmanship. You can also rest assured that in the event of an emergency, you can always bring the vehicle to us without an appointment.


If you’re like most of us, you will spend over 6,500 hours of your lifetime driving. A lot of people don’t give this much thought and are happy with a reliable car that suits their needs, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with this; however, there are others who want more from their daily commute. They enjoy the winding roads, the lone straight stretches, different wheels, and modifying various other features. If you are one of these people, you are not alone and we can help. We have relationships with many vendors who we work with daily to provide upgrades of all kinds for our customers. Some of these include: Steve Dinan’s Carbahn, Malone Tuning, BM3, MaxPSI and Tire Rack. Whether you know exactly what you want and simply need assistance installing, or you have an idea of what you want but would like to discuss options, we can help.
