When the check engine light illuminates on the dashboard, Hangtown’s technicians use diagnostic tools to pinpoint the underlying issue, allowing for proper diagnosis and repairs.

Hangtown’s brake-related services involve evaluating the braking system components, including brake pads, rotors, calipers, and hydraulic systems. Our technicians look for issues such as brake wear, fluid leaks, or malfunctions, ensuring safe and effective braking performance.

If there are issues with the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system, our technicians are ready to diagnose problems related to the blower motor, refrigerant levels, compressor, or electrical controls. Let’s get you the optimal climate control in the vehicle that you deserve.

Our expert technicians provide comprehensive diagnostics, air bag module replacement, sensor and wiring inspection and repair, clock spring replacement, air bag inflator replacement, and thorough system reset and testing. 

Our factory-trained technicians test and diagnose problems related to the electrical systems of vehicles. This includes diagnosing issues with the battery, alternator, starter, wiring, fuses, and various electrical components.

When there are signs of transmission issues, our auto repair shop checks transmission fluid levels, examines the transmission control module, and conductsa road test to assess gear shifting and performance.

Our experienced technicians check for leaks, analyze emission levels, and assess the condition of components such as the catalytic converter, muffler, oxygen sensors, and exhaust pipes.

A fuel injection service helps improve fuel efficiency, engine performance, throttle response, and overall drivability. We recommend including fuel injection service as part of your regular maintenance or when issues appear, such as rough idling, hesitation, or decreased fuel economy, are observed.

Our technicians assess the performance of the engine and its subsystems. We run full checks such as fuel pressure, ignition timing, airflow, and sensor readings to identify problems that may affect engine performance or fuel efficiency.

We perform tests to identify issues with components like shocks, struts, ball joints, tie rods, and power steering systems. This helps ensure proper handling, stability, and ride comfort for the suspension and steering systems.

We use advanced diagnostic tools and scanners that can read and interpret data from foreign vehicle systems. These scans can provide insights into issues with the engine, transmission, ABS (anti-lock braking system), airbags, and other onboard systems.

Regular timing belt service helps ensure that the engine’s valves and pistons operate in sync, preventing potential valve-to-piston interference and costly engine repairs. Hangtown’s services includes seal and gasket inspection, water pump replacement, and tensioner and pulley replacement.

Pre-Purchase Inspection for Foreign Cars

Don't Purchase without an inspection

Hangtown Foreign Car Service’s pre-purchase inspection are performed by our qualified and reputable technicians who have experience with the foreign vehicle you are considering. Our technicians perform a thorough evaluation of the vehicle’s condition and provide a reliable assessment of any potential issues. The cost of a pre-purchase inspection is a worthwhile investment compared to the potential expenses and headaches of buying a problematic vehicle.

Our pre-purchase inspection will uncover any hidden mechanical, electrical, or structural problems that may not be apparent during a casual inspection or test drive. Hangtown’s trained technicians thoroughly assess the vehicle’s condition and identify potential issues that could lead to costly repairs down the line.

Hangtown Foreign Car Service’s comprehensive inspection uncovers safety-related concerns that could jeopardize your safety and that of other occupants on the road. We identify issues with brakes, suspension, tires, lights, airbags, and other critical safety components. Knowing the vehicle’s safety status allows you to make an informed decision about its suitability for your needs.

Hangtown Foreign Car Service’s inspection provides an overall assessment of the vehicle’s condition, including the engine, transmission, drivetrain, exhaust system, electrical components, and more. Our technicians will help you understand the general health and longevity of your potential vehicle, allowing you to gauge its potential reliability and performance.

Our pre-purchase inspection can provide insights into the vehicle’s true value. By evaluating its condition, mileage, maintenance history, and potential repair needs, you can make a more informed decision about the fair market value and negotiate the price accordingly.

If the inspection reveals any issues or maintenance needs, it can be used as a negotiation tool to discuss the price with the seller. Depending on the severity of the findings, you may request repairs or negotiate a lower price to account for the necessary fixes.

Investing in a pre-purchase inspection offers peace of mind, knowing that you have made an informed decision based on a professional assessment. It minimizes the risk of purchasing a vehicle with hidden problems and provides confidence in your choice.

If you are purchasing a used vehicle with an existing warranty, our pre-purchase inspection can help determine if the vehicle meets the warranty requirements. It ensures that you are not unknowingly purchasing a vehicle with pre-existing conditions that may void the warranty coverage.
