Preventative maintenance is the best way to ensure your vehicle stays reliable, and lets you avoid major repairs as well as the expenses that come with them. At Cascade Automotive Service, we provide a complete preventative maintenance program, and carry all the necessary parts and expertise to take care of the little jobs that let you avoid the big ones. Choose from a comprehensive range of the fluids, oils, filters, and belts that your vehicle needs to keep running happily and healthily. Relax while your ride is inspected by our highly-trained technicians, and rest assured that it'll keep running smoothly for miles and miles.
The first part of our preventative maintenance program deals with your vehicle's fluids. Your car needs these fluids to keep running smoothly and prevent overheating. Most of our fluid change services are completed quickly so you can get back on the road in Grand Rapids, MI. Our technicians are happy to monitor and refill your engine oil, automatic transmission fluid, brake fluid, anti-freeze, power steering and wiper fluids. We also perform checks on your radiator to ensure there are no small leaks caused by stones and other road debris.
The next area of our program deals with the filters in your car. Whether filtering oil, fuel, or air, your car's engine and drivetrain rely on pure ingredients free from power-robbing particles. Your vehicle's fuel system, for example, wants only the purest gasoline or diesel. When microscopic particles build up in the system over time they reduce its efficiency and cause issues like decreased gas mileage. The same goes for your engine's air filter. An engine needs a mix of fuel and air to create combustion, and that can't happen if your motor can't breathe. Regularly changing your car's filters will prevent this from occurring. Cascade Automotive Service will make sure all your car's filters are flowing smoothly and clear, as well as the often-overlooked cabin air filter which can make a huge difference in how pleasant a car is to be inside.
Tire balancing is an important area of preventative maintenance where we excel. If your car's tires are out of balance, they could be putting undue strain on components in the suspension, braking, and drivetrain systems, which can cost you greatly further down the road. Ensuring a smooth ride with professionally balanced wheels and tires is a much cheaper, easier, and safer way to make sure your car stays on the road, while ensuring a long life for your tires.
Your car's timing belts are extremely important to examine during the course of preventative maintenance. There are a number of events that need to take place for one full revolution of your car's engine. These belts ensure that they all line up with each other, and occur at exactly the right moment. Should the belts become damaged or break, the events can fall out of sync and happen at the wrong time, which can be seriously detrimental to the health of your engine and your car overall. Cascade Automotive Service ensures that all your car's belts are healthy, and that all of those events keep happening at exactly the right time.

Always top notch service! On time as promised and with prices that are always better than the dealership.
I've had several cars serviced by Cascade Auto Services. They do a great job at a fair price. Perhaps more importantly, they are have shown the utmost integrity in working on my vehicles.
Jeff and his guys do a wonderful job of providing service and explaining the process behind what they are doing and why it needs to be done. I highly recommend Cascade Automotive Service!
Since moving to the Grand Rapids area I went from repair shop to repair shop looking for a place that did great work and had fair prices. Went a decade before finding Cascade Automotive and now that is where I take my vehicles. They accurately diagnose the issues, fix things right, all at the reasonable price. I trust Cascade Automotive.
Cascade Automotive has always given us top notch service on all of our vehicles! And much better pricing than dealerships. Also love that it’s close to home and can walk home after dropping off my vehicle. Very reliable service, they have our trust!
Great service at Cascade Automotive Service. They are very efficient. This was appreciated greatly. A sense of urgency when you don't have a car is very nice. They explain in detail what needs to be fixed get the job done right. They also open at 7:30 which is nice for early drop offs before work. I would recommend this service. Thank you!
Jeff, thank you for taking care of our entire family of cars. And thank you for putting on new wipers when you heard we would be driving into tropical storm remnants. You treated us like family. Amazing service!
I just relocated to the GR area and started having transmission problems... and I'm so relieved to have found this place. Jeff is an honest man! I found my new local mechanic shop.
I have never been to an auto-repair shop that truly acts as though they care about their customers the way that Jeff and his family does. Honestly, this is the most honorable, honest, and truly caring automotive repair shop that I have ever been to. Thank you.
We have been going here for a couple years now and won't go anywhere else! Very trustworthy, hardworking, and good people!
Good to know a mechanic you can trust. These guys are thorough and honest. My car was finished in less time than I was quoted and they charged me accordingly.
When I worked on the east side of Metro GR I used Cascade Auto for my personal cars and my work vehicles. Due to the downturn in the economy I wound up in a situation where I really had to start taking care of things myself. So for the past 10's I've been doing my own repairs. Just recently I had a problem that was outside of anything a repair manual or the internet could tell me. I needed help and my first thought was to take it to Cascade Auto. I'm happy to say they found the problem!!! It was something that should have never happened and could have been a defect going back to when the motor was built in the factory. The repair tech didn't give up and despite everyone and everything online telling him that couldn't be the problem he figured it out. Very happy that I reconnected with Jeff and his team.
