Miscellaneous Auto Services

For whatever else may pose a threat to your vehicle's road performance, our knowledgeable auto specialists provide a number of other miscellaneous auto services. And because our work is guaranteed, you can rest assured that you're receiving the best workmanship possible. Let us know how we can help you! Contact us at 805-498-0111 to set up an appointment for additional quality auto services.

Our miscellaneous auto services include:

    After-Hours Drop Off
    Sometimes auto repair needs arise long after most auto repair shops have closed (most auto repair shops close at 6 pm). With after-hours drop off services, you leave your car at the mechanics shop for repair even if the shop has closed. You simply fill out an envelope, put in your keys, and drop it in a drop box. The auto shop will only contact you when your car is ready or when they need additional information. At Academy Automotive 805, we value your convenience and that is why we offer after-hours drop off services. A completed Drop-Off Form will help the mechanic diagnose any problems. Even if we have closed, you just drop-off your vehicle at our shop and our mechanics will work on it and contact you when it is ready.

    Fleet Maintenance and Repair
    As a fleet owner, you have to do all it takes to keep the fleet on the road. When any vehicle is out of service, both revenue and your reputation as a reliable business are at risk. To make sure your fleet of trucks/vehicles is always on the road, partner with a professional auto shop. At Academy Automotive 805, we can manage your fleet repairs and maintenance. We make sure servicing is up to date and up to standards. We handle all aspects of fleet repairs and maintenance.

    Free Local Pickup and Delivery with Repairs By Appointment
    In certain circumstances, auto shops offer pickup and delivery services. This is whereby the auto shop picks up the vehicle at your work place or home, works on it, and delivers it after it is fully repaired and serviced. This saves you time and money. The p/u and delivery service can be either free or paid for. At Academy Automotive 805, we offer free local pickup and delivery whereby we routinely pick up your car from your home or workplace. We want to make the task of having that car repaired/serviced as stress free as possible. This service is subject to appointment.

    Free Local Shuttle Service with Repairs By Appointment
    When you drop your car at our garage for repair and servicing, you don't always have the time to wait until we've finished servicing your car. To get your busy life going on, we offer free local shuttle services. At Academy Automotive 805 in Newbury Park, CA 91320, we offer free local shuttle services to our customers. This service allows you to conveniently go back to your day's routine as we work on your vehicle - you don't have to wait at the shop. This service is by appointment.

    Fuel Efficiency
    The experts at Academy Automotive 805 can inspect your vehicle and perform services that can help it operate at peak performance and help improve fuel efficiency and overall fuel economy. These inspections and services may include items such as:

    • Change engine oil, using the recommended grade of motor oil
    • Check and change your air filter
    • Inspect and, if necessary, replace a clogged fuel filter
    • Adjust tire pressure to manufacturer-recommended specs
    • Inspect/clean the intake system
    • Inspect/replace emissions components and/or a faulty oxygen sensor
    • Inspect brakes for proper adjustment
    • Inspect power steering system and perform a steering alignment, if necessary
    • Align front suspension
    • Clean or replace dirty or malfunctioning fuel injectors
    • Inspect/replace spark plugs and spark plug wires
    • Check exhaust for clogged catalytic converter
    • Examine the exhaust gas recirculation system

    Hubs, Seals, Studs, & Nuts
    A wheel hub motor, also referred to as a wheel motor, is an electric motor incorporated into the wheel hub and drives it directly. You can have a safer and smoother ride today by replacing your warped and worn out wheel hubs. Let Academy Automotive 805 replace your worn out hubs today.

    Properly working seals provide oil and grease sealing - offering enhanced performance in a wide range of temperatures and environments. Worn out or warped seals allow external contaminants to enter the bearing unit or let lubricant escape from the unit. This ultimately leads to premature failure of the bearing unit. To keep out contamination and retain lubricant in the bearings, have the seals replaced with new ones. To have the seals replaced by experts, contact or visit Academy Automotive 805 today.

    Studs are the threaded fasteners that hold on the wheels of your truck. The wheel studs are permanently mounted on the wheel hub through the brake disk or brake drum. To secure the wheel, nuts (lug nuts) are fastened over the stud. Stripped wheel studs can be quite dangerous. Damaged wheel studs should be replaced with new ones immediately. To have your truck's wheel studs replaced with high quality ones, call 805-498-0111 or visit Academy Automotive 805 today.

    A wheel nut or lug nut is a fastener for securing a wheel on the hub. A set of lug nuts are used to secure a wheel to the threaded wheel studs (which are fixed to a wheel hub). Worn out nuts means one thing - the wheel is not fixed securely on the vehicle which puts the vehicle at the risk of rolling over. To have your truck's wheels securely fastened to the hub, contact or visit Academy Automotive 805 in Newbury Park, CA 91320 today.

    Most Extended Warranties Accepted
    An extended warranty (also known as a service contract) can provide peace of mind to most car buyers. The warranty (or service contract) kicks in after the usual manufacturer warranty has expired. An extended warranty covers major breakdowns and evens out the cost of repairs. Unfortunately, not all auto repair shops accept extended warranties. At Academy Automotive 805 in Newbury Park, CA 91320, we accept most extended warranties. We let you use the service contract to save on auto repair costs.

    Performance Modifications
    Do you have a passion for speed and performance? Performance modifications on your car let you attain high levels of speed and performance. This type of modification involves changing or completely replacing some of your vehicle's parts with high performance ones to boost its performance and speed. Mechanics at Academy Automotive 805 have a passion for performance too. The mechanics will make all the necessary performance modifications to ensure you get the best performance from your drive. For all your performance modification needs, contact us at 805-498-0111 or visit Academy Automotive 805 today.

    Pre-Purchase Inspections
    Are you planning to buy a new car? Don't take chances. Be confident about the car you are buying. Have pre-purchase inspections performed on the vehicle. Pre-purchase inspections involve examining the car's condition to ensure it is worth buying. At Academy Automotive 805, we have pre-purchase inspection experts - mechanics who will scrutinize any car, make, and model and allow you to make an informed decision. Pre-purchase inspections will definitely give you peace of mind when you buy your next used car.

  • Pre-Purchase Vehicle Inspections
  • Pre-Trip Inspection
    A pre-trip check up can make the difference between a safe trip and one that ends in a tragedy. The inspection aims at looking for possible defects and potential mechanical problems that could cause disaster. Before embarking on a trip you should make sure your car is fully inspected for safety. You can rely on the experts at Academy Automotive 805. We have pre-trip inspection experts who are able to conduct safety inspections on any car, make, and model. Our experts are dedicated to ensuring you have a safe trip. Simply drop by or give us a call at 805-498-0111.

    RV Repair
    Having issues with your recreational vehicle? Do not take your RV to just any mechanic. Rely on a professional only - a person/auto shop like Academy Automotive 805 that has a track record dealing with recreational vehicles. For all your RV repair and maintenance needs, contact or visit Academy Automotive 805 today. At Academy Automotive 805, we have qualified mechanics that have extensive experience repairing and servicing RVs.

    Trailer Hitches, Wiring and Tires
    Although a trailer does not have an engine of its own, it does require some maintenance. The trailer needs wires to move current to the brake lights and other lights at the back. Academy Automotive 805 has qualified and experienced electricians who will handle your trailer maintenance. Call us at 805-498-0111 to schedule an appointment.

    Wheel Bearings
    Wheel bearings are found inside of wheels, allowing the wheels to spin freely, and are connected to the brake system. They can become worn over time, causing a vibrating suspension and noisy rubbing as the car is driven. If they break completely, the vehicle will become very difficult to control and unsafe to drive. Replacement interval for wheel bearings varies greatly, but they should be checked for leaks and wear periodically. Academy Automotive 805 can make sure that your bearings are in good shape and let you know if they need replacement.

  • This shops A1. I have an older mercedes and they were on top of things to get it back into tip top shape after I was having major problems with it. It was NOT an easy fix, but their methodical and patient determination got my car to perfection. I give these guys a 6 star rating plus plus... Definitely use them for all my cars.

  • I had been putting off an oil change for a few days (weeks). I was driving by on my way to San Luis Obispo when I decided I had to get the oil change right away. I searched for the nearest oil change location on yelp and found this place with amazing reviews. I called and could instantly tell they were lovely. I went in 5 min later and was instantly greeted by the owner, his wife and Jake who I spoke to on the phone. They made a FRESH pot of coffee for me which may sound silly but this is just one example of how they all make you feel at home. This is clearly not a marketing ploy but rather they are just really great people that own a business and doing phenomenal at it. Highly recommend this location for any of your needs. I live in Downtown LA and I will make sure to come here when I'm traveling from here on out.

  • Great and friendly people! They were straight forward, informative, and provided excellent honest service! Thank you for helping me Academy Automotive 805!!
    reviewicon

  • I can't begin to tell you how great Academy is. They always take great care of my suburban. Never sell me on anything that is not needed, they are extremely honest. And never ridiculous costs on labor and parts. My 20 year old daughter takes her car to Academy for her regular maintenance and oil changes as well, they offer fabulous deals on multiple oil changes at a great price. I know she won t be taken advantage of and nothing but honest work, making sure her car is in tip top condition and safe.

  • I don't even live in Thousand Oaks anymore and I make sure to go there. Everyone is so nice, and they do an amazing job.
    reviewicon

  • Did great work and was responsive to my needs. Could do better with a written estimate and communication on status - had to have special shocks replaced, engine mounts tightened, and a new radiator. Not a small job and they did a great job!

  • Good work, friendly.

  • Great service and good price. I highly recommend Academy Automotive 805. I had a dent and scratched paint in my car, so after researching some body shops on Yelp, I found this gem in Newbury Park. Since I was paying cash, they gave me a fair quote and a cash discount. The damaged are looks like new. The car was ready on time. Jacob and Andrea were nice and pleasant to deal with.

  • This place is awesome! They fixed my moms car and it came out perfect. She was so happy I told her I would get on Yelp and do a review. It was the best price in town and they did a fantastic job. They fixed the dent on her rear driver side quarter panel, door and rear bumper. Thanks for making my mom happy.

  • I must thank everyone who had taken the time to review this shop on Yelp! The left fender of my car was dented so I took my car to a few auto body shops in Thousand Oaks and Westlake Village for repair estimates. So very glad that I used Yelp and found this place which has saved me $350 in repair cost! They don't have a full-time staffed front desk personnel, but it helps cut down their overhead cost. There's a white button at the front desk which you can ring and someone would appear right away to take care of you. Jacob, the person that I talked with both on the phone and in person, was a very nice and respectful young man. I appreciated that he tried to help me because I was paying for the repair myself and gave me a good price. Car was done on time and the damage is gone, like nothing ever happened! No compromise in quality. Cost is more than fair, people is kind and reasonable, and quality is very good... yea, highly recommend.

  • Brought my minivan in for a rattling sound in the exhaust when I accelerated. He put it up on a lift, inspected the exhaust system and found 2 cracked welds. He was honest enough to say that I needed to take it to a muffler shop. So honest that he sent me to get the work done somewhere else. I'm confident they'll treat you right and give you a straight answer without any BS. Thanks!

  • After trying countless mechanic repair shops I stumbled upon this gem tucked behind Home Depot. They were the first shop that did not turn me away because of the year make and model of my vehicle and the difficulty that comes with finding parts. They went through the entire truck and found (plus showed) all of the areas that needed to be addressed and explained the repercussions if I did not go forward with fixing them. They fixed everything go thing I needed and did the job perfectly, they were extremely affordable and even offered to drop my truck off since my office is only down the road. Five stars is an understatement when it comes to the shop.

  • Needed an oil change for my RV, looked on Yelp for local places and found these guys. I called and they said they could do it and to bring it right over. I was very happy with the personal and quick service. Found my new local Newbury Park automotive service place. Good Deal!
    reviewicon

  • These guys are great. I manage a fleet of about 16 cars and they are very prompt and complete with every job. I even take my personal cars here. I highly recommend them for any job, big or small.
    reviewicon

  • Academy Automotive 805 performs top-notch service on a variety of automobiles with an even wider variety of issues. They patiently hunted down a hard-to-find car part for my 1964 Buick Riviera and executed a lasting repair after another local shop tried and failed (twice!). I highly recommend giving them an opportunity to win your business too.
    reviewicon

  • Wonderful service and good price. I really recommend Academy Automotive 805. I had a dent in my car, so after researching for some body shops I found this place. They fixed the dent for a fair price (probably half the price of other body shops) and delivered the car on time. High quality service and fair price, two things that are hard to find nowadays.
    reviewicon

  • Awesome team and I can't thank them enough for taking care of my car's issues!! I appreciate their honesty and integrity and can't say enough nice things about the entire Team...I won't take my car anywhere else!!

  • These guys are awesome. They know their stuff and get the job done quickly. Honesty and integrity to spare. They'll be doing all of my automotive work in the future.

  • I had my 1965 Ford F100 completely restored here, they did an excellent job! I will definitely be a frequent customer. Thanks to Jacob as well for answering all of my questions. The paint turned out incredible!

  • Good place for General automotive repair and Fleet repair service.
    reviewicon

  • From my own experience with Academy Automotive, they deserve more stars than the universe. Pay Academy Automotive a visit with your vehicle, have the oil changed, get a tune up, or have your vehicle serviced - whatever it is, Academy Automotive can handle it!
