Taking Proper Care of your VW.

In order to maintain the good running condition of your Volkswagen it is important that you know how to properly maintain your baby.  The cooling system of your VW vehicle is one of the parts that can easily deteriorate due to constant use and exposure to engine heat.  This is the part that you might have to replace more often.

Here are some important things to remember –

1.  A clean engine runs more smoothly.
2.  Replace your VW car's coolant on or before the factory recommended intervals.
3.  Replace ALL of the cooling system’s hoses.
4.  Make sure to at least adjust the water pump drive belt.
5.  Switch out your VW's fan clutch or fan blade if needed.

We pride ourselves in the care and upkeep of these incredible German vehicles.  We are Jim’s Auto Service Raleigh’s premier Volkswagen repair and parts replacement headquarters in the Raleigh NC area.  Bring your VW to us.  We will treat it like our own.  Call for an appointment at our 3711 Tarheel Drive location (919) 824-4566.

Special Orders Don’t Upset Us.

You have heard these words before when promoting a fast-food restaurant chain.  So, how does it apply to your vehicle’s mechanical repair?  What we are referring to is the ability to do the same great job on ALL vehicles.  Be they foreign or domestic, we fix them all.  The new era of electrical systems does NOT challenge us.

When you learned your profession as a “shade tree mechanic” you can make that claim.  That means we did not study at the hands of specific auto manufacturers as many people do.  The truth is, I have had the greatest teacher of them all…experience.  You learn by doing, and in the last 40 plus years I have just about repaired ‘em all!

I am Jim Liacos, the head of Jim’s Auto Service here in Raleigh NC.  You may read about my history and background by visiting  I hope you feel that no matter what type of vehicle you drive you will trust me and my staff to fix it right the first time at our shop located at 3711 Tarheel Drive.  Stop in or make an appointment by calling (919) 824-4566.
