Thorough automotive inspections for accurate diagnosis

Performing auto repairs without a complete inspection is a waste of time and money. That’s why at Rod’s Japanese Auto Care, our technicians perform a complete visual inspection on every car that comes in. They then follow up with any needed mechanical or electrical testing. When you’ve got a check engine light on or a slipping transmission, you can trust us to figure it out.

Comprehensive and Honest Overviews

Some shops leave you scratching your head about your car. Not at Rod’s Japanese Auto Care. We provide our customers with a thorough overview of any recommended repairs, and are happy to answer any questions you may have. Honesty is our top priority, meaning we will never make any unnecessary repair suggestion.

No-Pressure Repair Recommendations

Some shops want to sell you everything under the sun. They think that’s the easy way to make money, but it doesn’t last. At Rod’s Japanese Auto Care, we earn business through honesty and integrity. We provide no-pressure repair recommendations. In addition, we make clear which repairs are vital (such as worn steering components) and which are suggested (such as replacing your cabin filter).

Come to Rod’s Japanese Auto Care for the best auto repair in Bellingham, WA. We look forward to meeting you soon!

I trust them to do all the work on not only my Subaru but my husband’s new Dodge Ram truck. I know I can count on them to do the work I ask and if they find another issue, they always call to let me know my options before completing the work.
