Positive: Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality, Value I did not have an appointment and they took me in right away, (which I did not expect) and solved my tire pressure issue very quickly. Closs tire is always very accommodating and everyone there is very knowledgeable and very friendly.

I should have known better than to buy tires anywhere else. Unfortunately that's what I did (ladies: never listen to your husbands, lol). Well, not only did they sell me a defective tire, when i went to replace it they broke my shift knob!! Then they wanted to sent me to a mechanic who had nothing but negative reviews and gave me the creeps when I called to discuss. Thank GOD for Closs tires where they replaced the shift knob for me quickly, no hassle, easy peasy, in a clean environment, very professional, and they treated me like a VIP! I learned my lesson! stay with the good people at Closs, and don't make the mistake of going anywhere else.

Your vehicle depends on a properly working electrical system. Four main parts make up this system, and they must work together effectively.


Your car's suspension and steering system allows your wheels to move independently of the car, while keeping it "suspended" and stable.


Our ASE-certified technicians take professionalism to the next level by offering courteous and knowledgeable service to all of our customers.


We recommend you get a seven point preventative cooling system maintenance check performed at least once every two years. Consult your vehicle owner's manual for specific guidelines.
