Best automotive shop in the valley. Family owned and always honest, even to a single girl in her 20's who doesn't look like she knows much :). I've been coming here for over a decade and always get quality work. - Nicole C.

This was our first visit and we felt management, as well as mechanics, were knowledgeable, forthright, and extremely courteous. We left feeling good about the repair to our vehicle and we would certainly go back for any future repair work. Thank you for a job well done! - Susan S.

Jack and his crew are the best bunch of guys I have ever had work on my car. I've taken my car to them for the past 15 years here in the valley and they have never let me down. These guys know their cars. They do very good work quickly and at a good price. I have recommended them to a lot of friends who are also very thankful I gave them the recommendation. I've learned my lesson; I won't even take my car for an oil change anywhere else anymore. Sunset Automotive Rocks!!! - Pam F.

I have taken my autos there for over 5 years when I need something done I cannot do. They are honest, which is hard to find these days. Sunset is such a great shop! - Paul C.

My family and I have been coming here for years and these are some really great guys here!  I was taking my Xterra to the Nissan dealership for oil changes for the first few years after I bought it because it was free; every time they'd tell me something needed a repair/replacement of something (no, it wasn't every oil chang, but it was more often than it needed to be), I'd take it to Sunset for a second opinion and only once did these guys tell me I actually needed it.  I have referred many folks here, but just this weekend, I sent another friend here after she was having a hard time starting her car. She dropped it off Monday evening (Memorial Day), they checked it out on Tuesday morning and told her that it was definitely the starter, but that based on the year, when she bought it, etc, that it was probably under warranty, and even called over to Hyundai for her to check. Turns out it was, thus saving her several hundred dollars and there are MANY seedy establishments that would not have.  I'm telling you, I would trust Sunset Automotive and all of the fantastic people they have working there with any car issue on the planet.  As a girl in her mid 30's who knows zilch about cars, I can't explain the peace of mind I have about taking my car there and referring my equally clueless friends :).  Thank you, Jack and your amazing crew!  You guys are the best! - Tracy M.

There seems to be a common misconception among many that if you have an aftermarket/extended warranty, that your car, truck, SUV, or Jeep must be taken to a dealership. This is not true. Non-dealership / Independent Automotive repair shops can service and repair your new or UNDER WARRANTY/EXTENDED WARRANTY. As a positive, at our shop, you can get fast service and work with highly trained technicians!  We'd love to take care of your vehicle for you and can do so right here at our automotive shop. Repairs by highly rated and trained automotive technicians with dealer rated diagnostic tools, at BETTER PRICING by a shop that knows you!

It is a law that independent automotive repair shops can maintain and service your warranty. All consumers are protected by the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, which is enforced by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). It prohibits a manufacturer from voiding the new vehicle's warranty or a vehicle's extended warranty because service was performed by a Non-Dealer/Independent Repair shop.

Per the FTC, “It's illegal for a dealer to deny your warranty coverage simply because you had warranty work or routine maintenance or repairs performed by our automotive shop. Routine maintenance can include anything from oil changes, tire rotations and belt replacement, to fluid checks, flushes, new brake pads, and inspections.” It is also important to note that the “Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act makes it illegal for a company to void your warranty or deny coverage under the warranty for the simple cause that you used an aftermarket or recycled part.”

One of the major perks of bringing your vehicle to an independent repair shop is the ability to make your money go further. Many times, warranties will have a limit or a deductible. Our goal is to make your warranty work for you.

Lastly, If you are on the fence about whether or not to purchase an AFTERMARKET or EXTENDED warranty. We suggest opening a savings account for your car and putting back money for possible breakdowns. While warranties are great the limitations can sometimes outweigh the benefits.

Whichever option you may choose we will be there for you every step of the way! We look forward to taking care of your new or under extended/aftermarket warranty, car, truck, SUV, or Jeep right here. Give us a call today!

TRUE OR FALSE? Until your vehicle is out-of-warranty, it must be serviced by the new car dealer or the factory warranty will be void?
FALSE?    Our ASE Certified technicians at Sunset Automotive, Inc CAN SERVICE your vehicle if it is under warranty with the same tools typically faster and at a better price point plus we are cross-trained in multiple lines of vehicles vs. just the brand at the dealership you bought your car or truck giving you more options!  

It’s the law that independent repair shops can provide the services to maintain your new car warranty. Consumers are protected by the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, enforced by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), which prohibits a manufacturer from voiding the vehicle warranty because service was done by a non-dealer.
