    Why Come To Us If Your Check Engine Light Is Lit

    A lit-up “check engine” light can range from meaning that you just need a software update to a major engine issue. This is why it’s important to work with manufacturer trained technicians using a computer-powered shop. Our technician’s first step is to tap into your vehicle’s software to get an issue code. That guides a deep hands-on diagnosis to find out exactly what’s needed. Every appointment also includes a cleaning inside and a virus-killing germ bath treatment.

    The “check engine” light is not something you want lit up. It is a warning that the onboard diagnostics system has detected a malfunction in the vehicle’s emissions, ignition, fuel or exhaust systems. It can be anything from a software issue to loose gas cap or spark plug or something as severe as a faulty catalytic converter or major engine problems.

    Don’t ignore it.

    The “check engine” light usually comes on for a few seconds every time you start the engine. That’s normal. There’s a problem if it stays on. If the “check engine” light is flashing or blinking then you have a more serious problem that needs to be dealt with right away. You should speak to a technician or service advisor before driving it.

    Because the “check engine” light can mean anything from super serious to just a technicality, it’s impossible to estimate cost until the technicians determine what the issue is. As with all work done through CarCare, you’ll have the chance to review and approve any work with pricing before it’s done.

    We serve Washington DC, Bethesda, Chevy Chase, Silver Spring, Rockville, Potomac, Arlington, Alexandria, and the entire DMV region.

    This was my first time using CC2G/Ourisman Jeep of Bethesda, and it was a fantastic experience. The online booking and valet service went smoothly, and the work was completed in a timely manner. The best part of the experience was the communication with the service team. I knew going into the appointment I needed significant work done, so I definitely appreciated how straightforward everything was. The written estimate included a detailed breakout of the costs (for both labor and parts), pictures of the relevant parts & info about their functionality, and scaled recommendations about how soon something should be addressed. Everything was very transparent. The service team kept in touch throughout the process. If they said you'd hear from them by a certain time then they actually called you at that time. They also listened and engaged in conversation; they took my preferences and driving habits into account when making recommendations. And the detail was SUPERB! I checked all the nooks and hard to reach spots when my jeep was returned; the engine, under the seats, the air vents, the vanity mirror, even down into the under-floor jack storage - everything was immaculate and gleaming. Work Completed: - new radiator, hoses, & thermostat - replaced rear axel seals - oil change - detail

    This is just the best car valet service I have ever used. They pick up the car when promised, return it when agreed and it is clean and shiny. No more having to drive to and wait for service. It could not be easier and the nicest people to deal with. I am happy to give it 5 Stars. Wish it could be more.

    Carcaretogo did a wonderful job with taking my Subaru in for an oil change and tire rotation. They have speedy communication and have proven to be a trustworthy company. I was blown away with the free valet service, and the thorough communication I received. I first scheduled a valet service prior to a big snow storm. Since it was storming I decided to change my appointment and did not anticipate it to be an easy ordeal, but I was proven wrong with the ease of changing my appointment and communication on both ends- the valet service and dealership. Thank you for your great customer service!

    What a joy to be able to have my car serviced without having to sit in the dealer's lounge! The pick up and delivery service was top notch, and the app used by the drivers had GPS tracking to be able to determine exactly when the driver would arrive at my home. Communication with the dealer was clear, concise and frequent -- including a call the day before to confirm details. Service was done as planned, and the car was returned at the end of the same day! What more could anyone else ask for?

    Very quick service. Came right on time in our selected window and was communicative about the issues on my car (which were many). Dropped my car off same day just as quickly as they picked it up! Highly recommend and a special thanks to Ryan and Steve for their help.
