The engine of a car is like the heart of your car. It is the one thing that connects everything together and ensures that your vehicle continues to move. It’s main purpose is to transfer the fuel that moves into the engine area and then to move it back out so that your car as fuel to run on.
Many people think that their car’s suspension is only made up of the shocks & struts. Although the shocks & struts are a major part of your suspension system, there are other components that need period maintenance. Your car’s suspension system is important as it keeps your car on the road.
Your car’s transmission is one of the most important & often confusing components. It is made up of hundreds of parts, has been redesigned & redeveloped since it was first invented & without it, your car wouldn’t go anywhere. To ensure your transmission doesn’t fail leaving you by the side of the road, it needs proper care & maintenance.
Applied at the brake pedal, the driver’s braking effort is multiplied by the brake booster and then applied to the master cylinder. The brake master cylinder transmits the braking effort—via the brake fluid—to the brake calipers (on disc brakes) or to the rear wheel cylinders (on non-disc brakes).

After the short heat wave, thought Id' finally write up the review. Several Weeks ago I had taken my 2000 Dodge Durango 4.7L 4x4 to see why it has overheating as it has been a continuing issue. The last 3 Mechanics I went to tried to figure it out and the last one had my SUV for about 2 weeks. Which they changed the sparks plugs, installed a new blower motor and changed the oil. Lets's just that the last 3 mechanics I went to in the past 7 months, that money would have been better spent here at GIC than the last three guys! "Whoa" you say, "dude that is a bit harsh". In all honesty, this is what Yelp is all about. Everyday people writing about their experience of an establishment and on that particular day. Yeah sure there are some who write to bash a place or if the place had an off day. Then there are some who write to promote because of their close ties to that particular establishment to drive business to benefit one another.GIC is not like that. Yeah all the reviews you see on YELP is awesome, but you have to understand something. GIC is not your run of the mill, tired, grumpy, bitter, ignorant staff as you park and walk into that door. No, this Auto Shop is inviting, clean and in all honesty you can do your work there (just don't hold conference calls though 🙂 ) as GIC provides Free Wi-Fi. The couch is so comfy you can fall sleep there even with all the Air Guns ratcheting bolts and visitors dropping by. Why am I sold and why I will continue to bring my cars here you ask? The answer is so simple and most, if not all forgets the one thing in all business ethics. **Greeting the next potential long term customer!** Jose greets everyone with respect and in return also that you respect him and his staff as well while they tend to a customer. Jose could be talking to you and if he notices a customer coming in he will briefly pause, be courteous to you and say hold on for bit and "Hi, Welcome to GIC. Please have a seat as I finish up with this customer and I will help you next." Seriously who does that now a days with sincerity and honesty. He doesn't ignore you and will always try to make your short stay comfortable. This is Customer Service at it's Industry Sector Best! Jose is focused on Customer Service to make you feel at ease. He listens well (there were times I wanted to just say Thanks Doc Jose), but this is how he determines what is best for the car and what he can relay to the Tech's so they can pinpoint the issue. What also blew my mind about GIC is the level of detail that this Auto Shop does that no other Independent Auto Shop around the Santa Clara County nor any of the Car Dealerships does. A Detailed report. Call this your transcripts of everything that you, Jose and GIC has talked about and what they too have encountered. On all detailed report. Not even my Dentist provides that kind of stuff! Lastly, not sure if Jose has been doing this since he has been there, but let's just say he took a page from Jimmy Fallon (or maybe vice versa) and sends out Thank You Cards! The Nice Thank you Cards not the sarcastic ones like Jimmy does :). I was very impressed. So my 15 year old Durango is running fine. They replaced the Clutch Fan, but there are other things I need to fix as well like my Steering Pump and my Radiator Fan. But since it wasn't causing an issue it has been operating fine. Best of all, even with the recent heat wave and the last one in July, my "Baby D" is happy. When the Temperature Gauge hasn't moved past its normal operating Temperature I know this SUV will be chugging along hopefully another 10-15 years! It ain't no Classic, but Baby D is family! Thanks GIC & Jose, glad to be part of your family!! See you all shortly as I will be back for the Radiator Fan and the Steering Pump.
My wife, two kids and I were reffered to us by a friend, so we decided to try GIC for our smog cert. I wslked in Saturday, to find out that I should have made an appt. (sorry about that) but the gentleman behind the desk said he did have some extra time that morning and was able to schedule me in.(I did'nt even have to tell him that my family was waiting outside. The waiting room was nicer than some doctors offices, and clean. I could go one but wont. Thank you again to the gentleman befhind the desk, and the Technician who performed the test
Great service and fair prices!
Smog testing the easy way. Jose suggested a way to be sure I wouldn't have to test the car twice and was wonderfully helpful in scheduling. This is even better than Apple!
Will travel for great service and prices. Long time customer. Thank you GIC !
Jack said the business always has good service when he goes to them and he does not have to worry.
I had an appointment for a smog check at 10:00 am, 55 minutes later I was on my way. Jose was pleasant and courteous. I would go there again.
I have been going to GIC for a few years. They have always been professional and helpful. They help me maintain my car so I will have it for a long time.
I came here for a oil change no problems, they were fast & courteous. Great customer service.
Though this time it was a maintenance service, once again I felt I am in good hands with the up-keep of my vehicle. Thank you GIC Car Clinic!
