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.

Free Local Shuttle Service with Repairs By Appointment
When you drop off your vehicle at our garage in Hendersonville for repairs and servicing, you might not always have the flexibility to wait until the work is completed. To help you resume your busy daily routine, we provide a complimentary local shuttle service. This service empowers you to efficiently get back to your activities while we address your vehicle's needs.

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 General Auto Repair and Tire WNC, 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 General Auto Repair and Tire WNC, 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 828-693-5457 or visit General Auto Repair and Tire WNC, 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 General Auto Repair and Tire WNC, LLC in Hendersonville, NC 28791 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 General Auto Repair and Tire WNC, LLC in Hendersonville, NC 28791, 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 828-693-5457 or visit our workshop in Hendersonville, NC.

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 General Auto Repair and Tire WNC, 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 828-693-5457.

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 General Auto Repair and Tire WNC, 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.
