Engine Service

A car’s engine is the heart of the vehicle, so it’s essential that you properly and routinely have all of its components serviced. Merrill Automotive is your trusted local auto shop, providing engine maintenance and repair to keep your vehicle running as it should.

Routine maintenance following a factory-recommended maintenance schedule is the best way to maintain the health of your vehicle and avoid costly auto repairs. Engine repairs can be particularly serious and expensive, so we make it our priority to work with you to find a routine maintenance schedule that works around your schedule and budget.

If your vehicle requires engine repairs, our experienced, trained, and certified auto mechanics work on cars of all makes and models, including trucks. Contact us today to schedule an appointment!

Oil Change Service

The most common auto service car owners experience is an oil change. Routine oil changes are crucial to the health and function of your vehicle’s engine. If the engine is the heart of your car, then the oil is the blood.

Routine oil changes ensure your engine runs smoothly and helps prevent potential damage to the internal components of the engine. At Merrill Automotive, an oil change service is far from just filling or replacing your oil.

First, we install floor mats and seat covers to keep your vehicle clean before taking photos to log visible damage. Our technicians will also take your vehicle for a spin around our test loop to see if there is anything unusual. They then complete a courtesy check of the vehicle, which is reported on a tablet and sent to your phone for great transparency.

Our technicians then complete the oil and filter service, top off fluids, and address any other maintenance items you may have requested. All this is completed in about an hour. Schedule your oil change today!

Brake Service

Another essential component of any vehicle is the brakes. Routine brake maintenance and replacement is the only way to ensure your car stops safely, so your brakes should be inspected regularly.

Our certified mechanics are trained and experienced with many types of brakes and parts across all makes and models, including trucks. For brake replacements, we only used high-quality brake components with an extended warranty we stand behind.

Most brakes have strong service lives, but you shouldn’t forget about them entirely. Have your brakes inspected periodically, and if you feel any vibration, hear squeaking, or notice any other unusual behavior from your brakes, schedule an inspection immediately!

Suspension Service

Thanks to our more than 90 years of experience servicing the Lakewood community, Merrill Automotive is extremely adept at servicing and repairing suspension.

In fact, we even invented equipment for suspension repair and service that are now widely used. Simply put, vehicle suspension is in our blood.

Modern vehicles have complicated suspension systems that require precision and knowledge to service. Our expert technicians work on suspensions for all vehicle types and can repair, replace, or upgrade your car’s suspension with tremendous ability.

Suspension is important to both the safety and performance of your vehicle. Just like any component, routine service is the best course of action. Our technicians help you stay on top of your suspension’s health and always notify you of potential issues in order to avoid costly repairs.

Brought my Mom's Cadillac in for repairs and was glad I did! Even though there were many things wrong, they helped me to get the most important safety issues taken care of. Thanks for the help! Great shop! We will definitely be back.


It had been a while since I'd been to Merrill's. When I have alignment, or front end issues, I've always been satisfied with the work. I've always felt I was charged fairly, also. It's a little far for me, now that I live up north, but it's worth the drive. Thank you!

-Larry Frederiksen

Chuck and Mike were awesome! I brought my 71 Chevy truck in, and they were very transparent about the issues and the cost to do the repairs. I would definitely recommend other people to them and I would definitely do business with them again.

-Marcello Da Cunha

Mike is very friendly and super nice. He explained everything they did. And told me everything that needed to be fix. This is the third time I have been there. I high Recommend them. They did a great job and didn’t have my car for ever.
