Vanguard Automotive Repair is proud to be a Certified Marin County Green Business.

We are inspected by and comply with all green requirements from PG&E and the MMWD. We recycle just about everything, including: engine oil, filters, batteries, plastic materials, paper, you name it!

Bonnie and her team love helping customers have a more efficiently running vehicle and lowering their greenhouse gas emissions! Proper tune-ups can increase vehicle gas mileage an average of 4%. Fixing a faulty oxygen sensor can improve mileage by as much as 40%. Proper tire inflation, using the manufacturer's recommended grade of motor oil for the vehicle, and clean air filters help with fuel economy as well.
