Fleet Maintenance and Repair
As a fleet owner, maintaining the roadworthiness of your fleet is very important.

To ensure that your fleet of trucks/vehicles remains operational at all times, it's crucial to collaborate with a professional auto repair shop.

We are well-equipped to manage your fleet's repair and maintenance requirements. We ensure that your servicing is in line with both the latest standards and the stipulated schedules. Our expert team takes on the complete spectrum of fleet repairs and maintenance.

Free Loaner Car with Repairs By Appointment
In situations where your vehicle is undergoing repairs at our auto repair shop, and you require alternate transportation, we provide a free loaner car. A complimentary loaner car offers you the convenience of having a vehicle at your disposal while your own car is being serviced. We are one of the few shops that extend this service to our valued customers. It's essential to prearrange this service and subject to availability.

Free Local Pickup and Delivery with Repairs By Appointment
In some cases it may be much more convenient for you if we pick up your car for service and deliver it back to you after service is completed. We do offer this service for local customers

This approach saves you both time and money. Pickup and delivery services can either be free or may involve a fee. We aim to simplify the process of having your vehicle serviced or repaired, minimizing any stress or inconvenience. Kindly note that this service is contingent on the scheduling of an appointment.

Hubs, Seals, Studs, & Nuts
A wheel hub motor, also referred to as a wheel motor, is an electric motor incorporated into the wheel hub and drives it directly. You can have a safer and smoother ride today by replacing your warped and worn out wheel hubs. Let Giant Oak Automotive replace your worn out hubs today.

Properly working seals provide oil and grease sealing - offering enhanced performance in a wide range of temperatures and environments. Worn out or warped seals allow external contaminants to enter the bearing unit or let lubricant escape from the unit. This ultimately leads to premature failure of the bearing unit. To keep out contamination and retain lubricant in the bearings, have the seals replaced with new ones. To have the seals replaced by experts, contact or visit Giant Oak Automotive today.

Studs are the threaded fasteners that hold on the wheels of your truck. The wheel studs are permanently mounted on the wheel hub through the brake disk or brake drum. To secure the wheel, nuts (lug nuts) are fastened over the stud. Stripped wheel studs can be quite dangerous. Damaged wheel studs should be replaced with new ones immediately. To have your truck's wheel studs replaced with high quality ones, call 805-375-3117 or visit Giant Oak Automotive today.

A wheel nut or lug nut is a fastener for securing a wheel on the hub. A set of lug nuts are used to secure a wheel to the threaded wheel studs (which are fixed to a wheel hub). Worn out nuts means one thing - the wheel is not fixed securely on the vehicle which puts the vehicle at the risk of rolling over. To have your truck's wheels securely fastened to the hub, contact or visit Giant Oak Automotive in Newbury Park, CA 91320 today.

Most Extended Warranties Accepted
An extended warranty (also known as a service contract) can provide peace of mind to most car buyers. The warranty (or service contract) kicks in after the usual manufacturer warranty has expired. An extended warranty covers major breakdowns and evens out the cost of repairs. Unfortunately, not all auto repair shops accept extended warranties. At Giant Oak Automotive in Newbury Park, CA 91320, we accept most extended warranties. We let you use the service contract to save on auto repair costs.

Pre-Purchase Inspections
Are you planning to buy a new car? Don't take chances. Be confident about the car you are buying. Have pre-purchase inspections performed on the vehicle. Pre-purchase inspections involve examining the car's condition to ensure it is worth buying. At Giant Oak Automotive, we have pre-purchase inspection experts - mechanics who will scrutinize any car, make, and model and allow you to make an informed decision. Pre-purchase inspections will definitely give you peace of mind when you buy your next used car.

Pre-Trip Inspection
The importance of a pre-trip inspection cannot be overstated, as it can be the decisive factor between a safe journey and one that ends in disaster. This inspection aims to identify potential defects and mechanical issues that might lead to accidents or breakdowns. Before embarking on your trip, it is essential to ensure that your vehicle undergoes a comprehensive safety inspection. Feel free to drop by or give us a call at 805-375-3117.

Wheel Bearings
Wheel bearings are located within the wheels and enable them to rotate freely while being connected to the brake system. Over time, these bearings can wear out, leading to a vibrating suspension and audible rubbing noises during driving. If they break down completely, the vehicle becomes extremely difficult to control and unsafe to drive. The replacement interval for wheel bearings can vary significantly, but it is essential to periodically check them for any leaks or signs of wear.

What Our Customers Are Saying

I cracked a cylinder head in my engine in my beloved 4Runner after initially thinking it was just a clamp accidentally left on my fuel line after a smog check elsewhere. Mike is so honest and his prices are so fair and reasonable and he even gave me a ride home and dropped me off. He also straightened out my license plate for free. What a guy!!!

This is the best place to take your vehicle for repairs. Mike is a straight shooter and made the process of dealing with my warranty company very simple and stress free. He was very responsive and kept me well informed throughout the process. I strongly recommend this place for any auto repairs you need!

My wife and I have been taking our vehicles to Mike at Giant Oak Automotive for over 20 years. During that time Mike and his crew have consistently provided excellent service at very fair prices. He is honest, hard-working, knowledgeable, and will go the extra mile to get the job done, often without charging extra. I would recommend his shop without hesitation for anyone needing a reliable mechanic.
