Auto Service & Repair in South Burlington, VT

Welcome to The 4x4 Center Service Department; my name is Jason Carey, Service Manager. That means it is my job to ensure you have a great experience every time you visit us! If you look at our online reviews you will see many happy customers who feel that both they and their vehicle have been well taken care of at The 4x4 Center. Should you have any questions about your vehicle or service please direct them my way.

I am proud of the work we do, most of our techs have been here for a long time and work together as a team - I believe our customers really benefit from this. Our technicians have decades of experience not only studying, training, and learning all the new technology that comes with todays vehicles, but their experience is practical too. Armed with the most up to date technology and tools they understand the "whole vehicle" and perform any fix not only according to the text book but, based on their understanding of how all the vehicle systems work together - this means we're not just checking the "done" box, we're performing vehicle maintenance and repairs the way you would expect them to be done - right the first time.


Several things that set us apart from many shops:

  • We are not a flat rate shop. This means the tech spends the time needed to give you the best result.

  • We do not cherry pick. Meaning we will fix whatever needs to be fixed. We won’t overlook a complex electrical issue just to grab an easy brake job.

  • We will tell you if your vehicle is beyond economical repair up front. We won’t fix something and then say “oh & by the way…”

  • We do not perform unnecessary service to your vehicle and will ensure that when you leave, you know what the next logical step in servicing your vehicle should be.

We empower you, to be a smart customer of ours because we find, those make the happiest customers.
  • No surprises! At the 4×4 Center, we will always explain every job in detail to you and provide an estimate that you approve, before we go to work. We keep electronic records of your maintenance history, which can be critical for insurance, re-sale purposes, and for maintaining your warranties. (If the 4×4 Center suspects a defective component is in warranty, we will let you know and also contact the dealer to find out. We never want you to have to pay for a part you could have for free.) When you leave, you'll know what the next logical step in servicing your vehicle should be. This might mean, when your next oil change should be, if you recently had new products installed, when to check them. We empower you to be a smart customer because we find those make, the happiest customers.

Do you have a more complex 4x4 vehicle?

An important feature of our approach to serving your 4×4 is to create a working “priority list” of maintenance needs looking at the whole life of your vehicle. This allows us to implement repairs in the most cost effective order.

We’ll let you know what problems are real safety issues, which are likely to cause more damage (and/or a bigger bill) down the road if left unattended, and those items that you can elect to leave alone or take care of at your convenience.

You expect more out of a 4×4 than you do a regular car. You can expect more out of the 4×4 Center, too.
