Over the years, the reputation of German car quality and dependability has become legendary. One only has to look at the number of “older” cars of Teutonic heritage that are driven on a regular basis to appreciate this. When Bill, Margie and Colin Dougherty decided to expand their business, they made the conscious decision to service select German cars knowing that, when properly maintained, they reward their owners with years of service well after others have fallen into irreversible disrepair. As our reputation has also been built on quality and dependability, the association is a perfect match, ensuring customers an excellent alternative to dealer service.
On a typical day in the Dougherty Automotive facility one would see Mercedes, BMWs, and Porsches on our lifts next to our mainstay Volvos and Saabs. Full service capabilities at Dougherty Automotive eliminate the need to travel from one facility to another to complete your service requirements. Our ability to mount and balance tires, perform wheel alignments, service air-conditioners, etc. in addition to full range mechanical repairs makes Dougherty Automotive a true “one-stop” service facility. The added convenience of a “loaner” car, while yours is being serviced, demonstrates the Dougherty’s desire for your auto repair to be as pleasant as possible.
Dougherty Automotive management and technicians stay abreast of the latest information and service methods for the newest models assuring that service on your German automobile will be carried out in the most efficient and timely manner. As a full service facility, we are able to perform routine maintenance, diagnostic work, or ancillary system repair on all German vehicles. We pride ourselves in having a comprehensively stocked parts department managed by parts professionals who can source genuine repair parts quickly avoiding unnecessary down-time. Our status as an Bosch Authorized Service Center ensures that we have the latest diagnostic equipment and specifications for your car eliminating the “part substitution” technique employed by other non-authorized service facilities. This allows us to correctly identify the problem and effect the solution quickly to get you up-and-running without delay.
When your German car comes up for service we hope that you will make Dougherty Automotive your service facility of choice. We are confident that our service will not only meet, but exceed, your expectations.
