Fleet Maintenance

Complete Fleet Services

Proper, periodic inspections of your vehicle's major operating systems are the best way to reduce the chances of unexpected breakdowns and costly repairs. At Firestone Complete Fleet Care, your vehicle receives a free courtesy check every time you visit. At regular intervals, your vehicle manufacturer also recommends a more complete inspection of the major systems.

For this more in-depth check of your vehicle, we offer a Complete Vehicle Inspection. In addition to the visual courtesy check, we perform a hands-on inspection of the brake, steering/suspension and exhaust systems to make sure they meet the vehicle manufacturer's specifications. Ask an auto care advisor for a complimentary printout of your vehicle manufacturer's recommended maintenance schedule. Following this schedule will help keep your vehicle running properly and spot any problems before they become costly repairs.

A/C Diagnostic & Repair

A/C service keeps you cool when it's hot.

  • Does your air conditioning blow hot?
  • Is your air conditioning usually loud?
  • Is your car's A/C environmentally friendly?

A faulty air conditioning system can affect your car's performance and your driving comfort. Technicians identify, diagnose, and treat A/C problems quickly and efficiently so you're comfortable when you get back on the road.

A/C Performance Check:

  • Visually inspect A/C components
  • Run performance test (including system state of charge test and system control test)
  • Perform leak test using approved electronic leak detector (if a slow leak exists but can't be detected by our leak detector, a dye detection service may be necessary)

Brake Service

Disc Brake Service

Our technicians will conduct a complete inspection of your vehicle's braking system to ensure that only necessary repairs are recommended.

Your car's brake pads are telling you the condition of your brake system. Lifetime Brake Service offers factory remanufactured replacement calipers that can enhance rotor and brake pad life (up to 50%), and improve your car's overall braking performance. Our technicians fully inspect you vehicle's braking system to determine which repair is right for your vehicle.

At regular intervals, your vehicle manufacturer also recommends a more complete inspection of the major systems. For this more in-depth check of your vehicle, we offer a Complete Vehicle Inspection. In addition to the visual courtesy check, we perform a hands-on inspection of the brake, steering/suspension and exhaust systems to make sure they meet the vehicle manufacturer's specifications.

Any number of symptoms indicate the need for heating and cooling services, and it's essential that you address them quickly. Cooling system failure is the number one cause of automotive breakdowns.

Starting & Charging

Does your car start slowly? Do extreme temperatures affect your car's ability to start? Electrical problems can often be attributed to your car's battery, but not always. When these sorts of problems arise, it's a good idea to check the charging system as a whole. Proper testing can eliminate more serious problems down the road.

Steering & Suspension

Conventional System

We offer Steering and Suspension services for most cars, light trucks, vans, and SUVs. The two major types of steering systems are Conventional and Rack & Pinion.

Most premature treadwear can be prevented by regular alignment service and proper tire inflation. Worn or damaged steering and suspension parts can also play a role in premature wear. When replacing worn tires, check the wear patterns for these signals:

Feathered Areas

Worn tread areas with a feathered appearance could be the result of an incorrect toe seating. In this case, a complete inspection for worn or damaged front end components should be performed.

Cupped Wear

Tread that has a cupped or scalloped appearance may be the result of worn shocks or struts. Loose wheel bearings, unbalanced wheels, or worn bushings could also cause problems.

On Side Worn

Incorrect camber settings often cause one side of a tire to wear more than the other. Ball joints, coil springs, and bushings should be inspected carefully. On vehicles equipped with MacPherson struts, the strut housing or shaft should also be checked.

Rack & Pinion System

Our technicians employ advanced alignment equipment in diagnosing and correcting most steering and suspension problems.

Are Your Shocks and Struts Working Properly?

The condition of your shocks and struts has a major affect on the life of your tires.

Shocks and struts that must be replaced include those that are leaking, have damaged or broken mounts, or have visible damage. After an inspection of the steering and suspension system, we will make the appropriate recommendations based on MAP Uniform Inspection & Communication Standards.
