For more than 35 years, Pinnacle has been a BOSCH authorized service facility – a difficult accolade to achieve. With stringent requirements to become and maintain certification, it’s no surprise our BOSCH certified mechanics offer work of a completely different caliber. We are also certified by ASE and AAA, have factory training and certifications from Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, and Volkswagen. We have been certified by the state of New Jersey as a recognized inspection and emissions repair facility and are dedicated to continuing our efforts of staying at the forefront of the industry by continuously taking technical courses in all European vehicle makes and models. We thoroughly equip our shop with the latest tools and technology, including computer diagnostics supported by Autologic and AllData
We know going to get your car repaired is a bit like going to the dentist: nobody loves doing it. We want to make the process as easy and enjoyable as possible for you. We genuinely care about your car and your experience, committing to provide you quality, care and value. For as many years as we have been in business, our focus has been to make sure every customer is satisfied with the service we have given their vehicle and believe we provide the best quality and value available. Going to a dealership is impersonal, when people come to Pinnacle, it’s more one-on-one; people talk to us directly.
This personal touch and passion for cars is what unites Pinnacle with its customers, many of whom have been bringing in their cars, choosing us for all of their automotive needs, for over 30 years. We may not be related, but we want you to feel like family. Bring your car in today for an inspection, and see what our commitment to quality and care is all about!
