PTA has purchased state-of-the-art computer diagnostic equipment and many special tools to insure that your vehicle will receive the best available diagnosis and repair possible.  Our maintenance services are the same as those recommended by the factory.  PTA provides the same quality service and repairs that the automotive dealers do at a more reasonable price in a comfortable setting with a focus on customer service.  We provide a 12 month - 12,000 miles warranty on repairs.  (For details, see the Warranty link, above.)

We like to follow the services recommended by the Toyota and Lexus factories and as published in your owner’s guide.  Some dealers may add extra “profit builders” as if they were part of the factory authorized services.  We do not play that game.


There is a very important service every 5,000 miles.  The only way to keep warranties alive and your car running correctly is to follow the factory guidelines. Doing so will save time and money!


Every time you bring your car in, we also check the tire pressures, brakes, engine check lights, fluid levels, etc.  It’s our business to make sure your car is safe; and guess what, we will not charge you extra for this!    It’s all part of the excellent service we offer.  

We stock genuine Toyota and Lexus parts, including 12 different types of oils, 5 different transmission fluids, 4 different coolants, and the list goes on.  Using the correct product is important to your car’s performance, and that matters to us.  We want your car to be PERFECT!.

We also honor “extra care” Toyota/Lexus warranties.

Rather than describe each service here, we request that you call our service experts for information and pricing.

Most repairs can be done within 24 hours.  

If you need new tires, you can purchase high quality and reasonably priced tires online at http://www.TIRERACK.com.  PTA has made arrangements with Tirerack to ship the tires you purchase directly to our shop.  Once we receive the tires, we will call you to set up an appointment to install and balance them.  If your vehicle then needs to be aligned, we have the equipment to do that as well.

On the Tirerack website, choose your tires, buy, then choose Perfect Timing Auto Service and Repair LLC as your “preferred installer.”  The tires will then be shipped to our shop.


We have trained smog technicians on site that can help you if you have received a notice from the Department of Motor Vehicles that your new registration will require a smog certificate.  Our smog check price is $59.95 and includes all cars and models beginning in 1976 - diesel included.  We also provide smog certificates for transfer of ownership if you sell your car.
