Pleasure Island Automotive in Carolina Beach is your trusted local family owned automotive repair shop offering friendly, professional and honest vehicle maintenance and repair services.
Pleasure Island Auto is a full service auto mechanic shop, since opening they have been continually growing to meet the needs of the community they serve.
The main question that full-service auto repair shops receive is, "Why do I have to pay for a diagnostic?" Cars are absolutely nothing like they used to be. They are complex and require diagnostic equipment that is specified to each manufacturer. Today's vehicles have an unbelievable amount of computers; microprocessors that control the brake system, radios/navigations, windows and locks, engine controls, transmission controls, and computers that analyze your fuel-to-air ratios to mention just a few.  Did you know that today's cars contain more computer power than the Apollo spacecraft that landed on the moon? Or that the average luxury vehicle has more than 100 million lines of code which equates to twice the amount of code found in an average desktop?  Not only do auto repair facilities need the computer diagnostic equipment, but they also need a serious amount of other tools to help with diagnosing fluid and air leaks, component failures, electrical shorts, and the list goes on. It is also the responsibility of the repair facility to make sure their employees receive continuing education, training, and receive certifications. There are online mechanic websites and portals that require sign-up and monthly subscription fees and most small repair facilities operate using more than one.  
In order for smaller mechanic shops to keep up with the dealerships, they are required to consistently buy new diagnostic equipment per manufacturer which require regular updates. Why do the manufacturers do this? It makes it easier to retain their revenue if they can continue to tweak their vehicles so that the privately owned shops have to spend more and more money on being able to properly read, program, and reinitialize the updated computer systems.
But what about the little orange hand-held device that the after-market auto parts stores use to "check your codes"? This scan tool only tells you a very small piece of the puzzle. A lot of small repair facilities will waive their diagnostic fees if the work is performed at their shop. This is becoming increasingly difficult to continue to offer, due to the amount of time a correct diagnostic takes. Some diagnostics are relatively easy while others can take days. Pleasure Island Auto’s qualified technicians are able to help with any standard maintenance or repair issues on all vehicles even imports.  “Our lead technicians are certified and treat every vehicle with care and precision.
