Fleet Maintenance and Repair
As a fleet owner, maintaining the roadworthiness of your fleet is very important. When a vehicle within your fleet is out of commission, it not only affects your business's profitability but also jeopardizes your reputation for reliability. 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 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 Northwest Automotive LLC 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 Northwest Automotive LLC 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 419-782-7827 or visit Northwest Automotive LLC 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 Northwest Automotive LLC in Defiance, OH 43512 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 Northwest Automotive LLC in Defiance, OH 43512, we accept most extended warranties. We let you use the service contract to save on auto repair costs.

On-Site Welding
Welding is an essential process in the fabrication and sculpting of metal parts. We offer a range of welding services. Please feel free to give us a call at 419-782-7827 or visit our workshop in Defiance, OH.

Performance Modifications
Do you possess an unbridled passion for speed and performance? Opting for performance modifications on your vehicle allows you to achieve heightened levels of speed and performance. This type of modification entails the replacement or complete overhaul of certain parts of your vehicle with high-performance alternatives, thereby enhancing its overall performance and speed.

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 Northwest Automotive LLC, 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 419-782-7827.

RV Repair
Encountering issues with your recreational vehicle can be challenging. It's crucial not to entrust your RV to just any mechanic. For all your RV repair and maintenance needs, do not hesitate to contact us or visit our shop.

Trailer Hitches, Wiring and Tires
Although a trailer lacks its own engine, it still requires regular maintenance. This includes the management of wiring to facilitate the transmission of current to the brake lights and other lights situated at the rear of the trailer. At Northwest Automotive LLC, we have skilled and experienced electricians who are well-equipped to handle the maintenance of your trailer.

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.

I have a 2011 Jeep Liberty, the A/C stopped working, so I called up Tim and told him. He said can you bring it in today at 1:00pm? I said yes. So I took it in, they found that all the Freon was out of the unit. So they put more Freon in plus added some dye to find if the system may have a leak. So I paid the bill. Tim said, if you have any further problems bring it back. So the next day I started my Jeep up. The A/C stop working. So I called them back on Saturday. Can you bring it back on Monday at 2:00pm? I replied yes. Returned back to Northwest Automotive. They took my jeep in and recharged the A/C unit, and checked the system for any possible leaks. So Tim filled me in on no signs of dye so go ahead drive it and if any further problems bring it back. So how much money do I owe you? He replied nothing. The next day I drove my Jeep the A/C stop working again. So I called them back and told them. Can you drop it off so we can get to work on it Monday morning. I said yes. So I called them up Monday around noon and asked how are things going with my jeep? He replied that we believe we have found the leak. So he asked you said when it would set over night that the next day it not work? I replied yes. He asked if you don't need your Jeep back today, we will let it set overnight and check and see if it is still working in the morning. So I replied yes. I called them back the next day and asked how are things going with my jeep? Tim replied it is working fine. He asked if I would pick it up later today, l said that is fine because I will not be in town till around 3:30pm. Because I was at work. So went to pick up my Jeep. Tim said I believe the problem was from the low pressure valve. It should be alright. I replied so how much do I owe you. He said nothing, if you have any further problems bring it back. I believe he is a fair and honest person. I will respect that and I will bring him some more business. Thanks again.

Northwest Automotive didn't charge me to look over my Geo Traker, even though I didn't end up having anything done to it. Will be going back to them.
