Gainesville FL Porsche Repair & Service

Porsche is a name synonymous with luxury and power. The first ever Porsche, the 356, featured a Volkswagen engine and parts scrounged from post-war Europe. Since then, the vehicle has built a reputation across the globe, first as an unbeatable racing machine, and then a luxury sports car.

Although Porsche has prided itself on creating a quality product, every vehicle is prone to design flaws. Whether a person drives the classic Porsche 968 or is enjoying the brand new 2016 Porsche 911, he must be knowledgeable of potential problems and choose a Porsche vehicle service center that is both affordable and convenient.

In Gainesville Florida, Carrsmith Auto Repair is the place to go for a variety of Porsche auto repair needs. At Carrsmith, their five-star quality service goes hand in hand with satisfied customers. The owner and mechanic has been providing specialized repair service for Porsche, BMW and other European imports for three decades. As an ASE Certified Master mechanic, he has extensive knowledge of the inner workings of the world's most luxurious vehicles.

Gainesville Porsche repair needs often stem from Florida's extreme heat and humidity. The Porsche is prone to brake problems caused by cracked pads, rotors or drums. Similarly, owners of the Porsche 996 often experience engine troubles caused by the heat. In some extreme cases cracks in the cylinder head can result in a rattling sound that only gets worse over time.

Porsche vehicle service is often required for less major issues, including the tendency for some automatic window systems to fail. This could be due to a bad microswitch or other simple problem and can often be repaired in under an hour. The Cabriolet is particularly prone to window problems.

With more than 50,000 vehicles going through Carrsmith's service doors, those who find themselves needing a Gainesville Florida Porsche repair company should call Carrsmith and set up an appointment.
