Trust NextGen With Your Preferred Car Maintenance
We Assign One Technician Who Will Understand the Entire Performance of Your Vehicle
Your car is treated as if it were our own. We are committed to ensuring the quality and thoroughness of our services. Your car or truck will be assigned a technician who inspects every part of your vehicle, gives it a road test, takes pictures for reference, and writes up a detailed report for you.
Road Testing Your Car
Our trained technicians have years of experience in the sounds and sensations of a car’s performance. By taking your vehicle on a test drive, they can identify odd sounds, sense if there is a vibration from the tires, check the effectiveness of the braking system, and test how the car handles on turns. Many times, our technicians can identify an issue that you may not have noticed in your day-to-day driving. This road test is going to give our technicians clues to what parts of your Preferred Car Care will get the most attention.
Brake Pads, Rotors, and Brake Fluid Maintenance
With our preferred service, we provide a complete inspection of your brake pads, rotors, and ensure that your brake fluid is filled correctly. During our road test, we’ll see if your brakes are spongy, of if they pulsate, or if there’s any unusual noises when stopping. We’ll measure and test where it seems appropriate to make sure we catch any potential braking issues.
Suspension and Alignment
An alignment refers to the adjustment of a vehicle's suspension system, which governs how well the car turns and functions on the road. This also affects the wear of the tires and the performance of your car. If we see signs of uneven wear on your tires, or notice your vehicle pulling during our road test, then we'll recommend alignment work. If we notice that your vehicle is bumpier than usual, drifting, or lurching, then we will check your shocks and struts for issues.
Our Customized Vehicle Service Report Card
Our technicians start out with a report card where they can provide you with the results of their inspection of the car with photographic evidence of issues that they found during their survey of your vehicle. This will give you a documented account of the work we are doing and our recommendations for achieving optimal operation of your truck or car.
The Spark: Your Battery’s Charge Health Affects Your Car’s Health
One of the first things we check when road testing your car is how your car turns over. If there is a slow engine crank, which may be a sign that there is an issue with your battery, we will check your battery to see how it holds a charge. We'll let you know if a new battery might be needed now or in the near future. We’ll also check cable connections for sulphation, which is that white build-up you commonly see on automobile batteries.
Engine and Undercarriage Cleaning
Keeping your car clean, especially in Upstate New York, is going to be important to the longevity and performance of your car or truck. Our expert team specializes in thorough undercarriage cleaning. We use a special high pressure water system that will get the salt, soil, and debris cleaned out without damaging your vehicle. With our meticulous attention to detail, you can rest easy knowing your vehicle is clean and road-ready.
Why Regular Car Maintenance at NextGen

Ideally, by bringing in your car or truck every 5000 miles you will keep your vehicle operating at its best.
