We have exceptional diagnostic capabilities at Alternative Car Care. Not only do we use the latest technology and state-of-the-art equipment, our certified technicians review areas of your vehicle’s engine that may not be covered by a computer system. If your check engine light is on, we’ll find out why and make sure your running conditions are safe and sound.

Transmission Service

Transmission work can be one of the most complicated (and potentially expensive) repairs done on your car or truck. That's why it's important to take your vehicle to a trusted auto repair shop. At Alternative Car Care, our knowledgeable technicians understand that some transmission problems can be resolved with a minor adjustment while others require a complete overhaul. We have the training and expertise to properly diagnose and fix your vehicle's transmission problem.

Brake Service

Not being able to stop is one of the worst things that can happen on the road. Brakes wear out and need to be serviced and replaced on a regular basis for optimum safety and performance. Our knowledgeable brake experts understand the driving conditions in the Neptune area and know that your brakes require care—which is why we provide a free inspection with every service to ensure that any issue is fixed before it becomes a dangerous problem.

Oil Changes

As our mission is to provide Neptune drivers with a local auto repair shop that takes care of all your vehicle’s needs, we also provide oil changes. We additionally offer a complimentary vehicle inspection with your oil change as we care about your safety.


We’re qualified to handle exhaust work for domestic and foreign vehicles, including mufflers, pipes, turbochargers, and other exhaust components.

Alternative Car Care offers factory-scheduled maintenance for all makes and models. We’ll check your fluids, change them as needed, and keep track of when your vehicle needs particular services. Our technicians are value-minded, so we’ll never perform a service you don’t need.
