Family road trips are meant to be fun and car trouble is a quick way to ruin that. The Black family knows that all too well. Their RV was towed into Leo & Son Garage when their vacation fun was just getting started. Thanks to the Black family for trusting us and allowing us to take that stress out of their hands. We were able to help them out and get them back on the road. We work hard to make sure our customers aren't dealing with the stress of car trouble, that's our job. Read Jennifer B.'s review of Leo & Son Garage on Yelp Thanks to the Black family for the great review. We're glad we could be a positive part of your family trip. Hope you enjoyed California!
Halloween is right around the corner! The weather is cooler (kind of), the leaves are changing, we're breaking out the scary movies, the costumes, and best of all the candy! Halloween is wonderful but it also has its issues. One of those issues being a whole bunch of people walking the streets at night in dark costumes. Halloween is fun but it's not so fun when you're not safe. Here are some tips on how to stay safe on the streets this Halloween. Watch For Children! This sounds obvious, I know, but it's important. Kids are likely not going to be thinking too much about the carson the road when there is candy to collect and fun times to be had. Don't assume that any pedestrians are going to stop for you. It's safer to stop and allow them to cross. Slow Down There are going to be a lot more people on the streets on Halloween weekend. Drive at least 5 miles below the speed limit, especi ... read more
Summer is here! It’s time to talk about your vehicle’s air conditioning. Did you know you should service your vehicle’s air conditioning at least once a year? I didn’t!! I thought as long as it was blowing cold it was working and I didn’t need to get is serviced. Wrong! Your vehicle’s air conditioning system should be serviced at least once a year even if it’s blowing cold air. The service is to ensure it keeps running correctly. The AC can fail due to no preventative maintenance being done, which would leave you spending hundreds on repairs. You can save yourself hundreds just by doing preventative maintenance. Do your pets travel with you? A dogs normal body temperature is 100.5 to 102.5 degrees. The inside of you r car can reach up to 160 degrees even with the windows cracked. This would send your pets into heat stroke. As a pet lover I would feel absolutely awful if I sent my pet into heat stroke be ... read more

We all love a good relaxing vacation. Frankly we all deserve a good vacation. As you plan your road trip and get all things in order. Keep in mind your vehicle needs to get ready for your trip as well, Leo and Son would like to ensure you have a relaxing trip. Therefore, we recommend bringing your vehicles in for a free overall maintenance inspection. This will ensure your vehicle is running properly for your vacation on the road. No one wants a vacation that ends on the side of the road due to vehicle malfunctions.

Hi Everyone! If the door sticks a little or the window doesn’t roll down, it’s no big deal right? Wrong! You might think they’re just “cosmetic” fixes, however in reality they could save your life and your loved ones as well. Nobody likes to think worst case scenarios, however it is important to make sure you are prepared for the worst, if it should happen. If you were in an accident (which we hope you are never involved in one) and you need to get yourself or your children out of the vehicle quickly and safely it is imperative that your windows and doors operate property to allow you easy access in and out of your vehicle. Personally have a large dog, her name is Maya. She loves to go for car rides with me. If something were to happen and I needed to get her out in a hurry, I want to have a piece of mind and confidence that my vehicles windows and doors operate as they should. I want to know that I will be abl ... read more
