Brake Service

The Cache Valley, including Providence, is mountainous. You will likely be driving up and down mountain roads often. This activity, while beautiful, can put a lot of wear and tear on your brakes. Some of the components that could need servicing are the

  • Master cylinder

Brakes are so important that you should not wait until they fall to get them checked. We recommend yearly brake checks at least for Providence, Utah. 

A/C Service 

There is nothing better than driving to a lake, hike, or picnic in the summer in Providence. Yet, summers will likely be very hot. That means you need a working air conditioning system in your vehicle. Without it you will be hot without ever getting to your destination. Ethan’s Honest Automotive provides the top A/C service in the area, guaranteed.

Transmission service

During your yearly auto check-in, you will likely want your transmission looked at. The transmission oil may need to be replaced. This is most likely in older vehicles or those that are driven a lot. Other common transmission services that we provide are

What we’ve been calling the yearly check-in could also go by the name of a tune-up. Tune-ups can occur at any time, though. If you notice that your vehicle is not performing optimally, it may be time for a tune-up. Let us know what’s going on. We will likely perform a
