WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT US
Bryan Marovich, Derby Line, Vermont
After moving to the area six years ago, I needed some work done on my car, and was recommended to go to L&R Automotive in Derby, Vermont. I have never looked back, and know I can always count on them to get the job done right, and at an affordable price.

We have been very satisfied customers since L&R Automotive began servicing our vehicles last February! We can count on them to be reliable and honest.
Your tires should be rotated every 6,000 miles or every other oil change. If it’s time, give us a call at L&R Automotive at (802) 766-2146.
A good rule of thumb is every 3,000 miles for an oil change. However, follow your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations. They will specify the frequency for an oil change for your driving conditions. The timing of your oil change should follow those recommendations. L&R Automotive is here to help, so get in touch if you need an oil change.
Brakes can squeak for a variety of reasons, but continuous squeals and grinding sounds may mean it’s time for new brake pads or shoes. Worn brakes can mean longer stopping distances and difficulty stopping in an emergency situation. Rotors and drums that are too thin may even become over-stressed and break. Here at L&R Automotive, we’re experts at getting your brakes fixed.
Besides excess noise and rough idling, what are some other things I need to watch out for with my car s exhaust system?
Excessive rust or broken bolts could cause mufflers, pipes, and other parts of the exhaust system to hang dangerously low, resulting in a hazard for the people driving behind you. However, these aren’t always things that can be easily assessed by just peeking underneath your car. As a rule, we recommend having your exhaust system inspected at least once a year, so if it’s time, give us a call at L&R Automotive, and we’ll be happy to help.
Air filters, engine oil weight, brake fluid, coolant, tire wear…how am I supposed to know about all this stuff, much less keep up with what needs to be checked and when?
With the help of your friendly technicians at L&R Automotive, you don’t have to be an auto expert. We’ll help you become more comfortable with your vehicle’s factory scheduled maintenance needs as well as help improve your knowledge of what to watch for and be aware of should a problem occur.
