Good News Garage Vol. X #2 – April 2014

Let’s Bring Easter to our Troops in Afghanistan

Easter Goodies

Our company is gearing up to assemble another care package for a local U.S. Army Reserve unit that was deployed to Afghanistan in January.

Care Package

We had a huge success in putting together a Valentine’s Day Care Package for our troops in February. We purchased over $600 in goods for our troops, and sent hundreds of cookies, valentine day cards, and everyday necessities in a giant care package packed by students from a local elementary school, Garden Oaks, to Afghanistan.

If you would like to get involved, here is what can you do to help. We’re planning our next send off in time for Easter!

Bring home baked cookies, snacks, travel sized personal hygiene products, handwritten cards, letters, or comics to our shop by Thursday April 10th to be mailed out to a local Engineering company, Unit 808, currently deployed in Afghanistan. As a reminder, no chocolate bars pleas

Back by Request: Young Adult Car Care Clinic

Young Adult

Knowledge is power and we realize that drivers are more confident when they understand how they “auto care” for one of their principal investments.

Our next car clinic is Thursday, June 5 from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. College students, drivers in their 20s and even new drivers are welcome. The cost is $15.00 and includes materials and dinner. Participants will learn about all the major systems of the vehicle, how to handle emergencies, how to do preventive maintenance that will reduce car repair bills. The class is limited to ten, so call to reserve your spot today

It’s Official: We’re Now a NAPA Auto Care Center


Adolf Hoepfl Garage always strives to find new ways to improve our customer service and quality of workmanship for our customers. Teaming up with NAPA is another step in that direction.

A couple of months ago we were approached by NAPA to join their nationwide network of Auto Care Centers. After some negotiations, and a gift of flowers, we agreed to become a NAPA AutoCare Center.

f you have been to our shop recently, you may have seen our new Menu Board for our customers. That was also a gift from NAPA to provide more information to our customers.

So how does this help you as our customer?

Although we are already AAA approved, hold many Awards of Excellence granted to us by the BBB, NAPA offers many programs that will help us train our technicians, offer more services to our clients, and a Nationwide warranty program (see article below).

NAPA also gives us another option when it comes to auto parts. Some of NAPA’s parts’ lines, for example, their brake pads and suspension parts, are recognized as among the best in the industry. We utilize over 50 vendors in providing our customers the right parts for their vehicles. Our staff has a more than a century of combined experience in parts product knowledge. We have never been the type of shop that utilizes two or three vendors. We research thoroughly and always consider the customer’s needs to provide the best value and quality for their vehicle.

What is Our Standard Warranty Period?

We offer a 3 year, 36,000 mile warranty on all of our repairs, unless it is otherwise stated on your repair order. While it is rare, it can happen that you need warranty help when you are not close to our shop. So if you are further than 25 miles from Adolf Hoepfl Garage, we offer not one, but TWO nationwide warranty plans for our customers, Through NAPA, we offer a 2 year, 24,000 mile nationwide warranty on parts and labor at any NAPA Auto Care Center. From Uni-Select we offer a 3 year, 36,000 mile nationwide warranty on parts and labor that can be taken to any repair facility. Of course we want to hear about any concerns whether you’re in or out of town, so always call us first! If you are in town, we are able to handle these situations more personally, if they do arise. If you are out-of-town, call us and we will guide you through the process. Remember our intown warranty requires us to see the vehicle for any issue.

Sybren & Kathryn’s Dream becomes a reality For the past several months, we have been working on a project to bring special Texas made products to Adolf Hoepfl Garage. We had originally scheduled a grand opening in February, but because of our unseasonably cold weather, it had to be postponed. That turned out to be a good thing! Now, the grand opening of the Liberty Garage will be bigger than ever.

We invite all our clients to attend an amazing event on Saturday, May 17, 2014. Come shop, and experience TEXAS in a way that you have never thought of. Bring your friends, enjoy free BBQ meal, live music and square dancing.
