Our shop uses the latest in paint-match technology to ensure a flawless match to your current paint. Alternatively, if you want a new look, our team can help you pick out the perfect new color and finish.

Finding the perfect paint for you and your vehicle can be a stressful experience, but it doesn’t have to be difficult. Bring your vehicle to Italy A&F Auto Repair today for an estimate and a consultation. Our team has years of experience and will be more than happy to provide you with the excellent service you and your vehicle deserve.

It’s normal for your car’s exterior paint to show wear over time. Exposure to the elements can break down the color of your vehicle’s paint and take the shine out of its finish. A fresh application of paint can provide a complete transformation and make your car look like it did the day you bought it! In the case of collision repair, a repaint is usually necessary to give the replacement parts a match to the existing color and give the entire vehicle repair a finished, seamless look.

If your vehicle’s paint is peeling, scratched or torn, bring it by our shop so we can touch it up. It’s important to have a paint touch-up completed by a professional, as scratches and peeling paint can penetrate to the underlying metal and will not produce a smooth finish when simply painted over. At Italy A&F Auto Repair we will assess the individual needs of each touch-up and create a solution that includes a true color match with the rest of your vehicle’s body.

We offer a variety of paint services:

  • Auto Paint Touch-ups
  • Auto Paint Scratches
  • Auto Paint Chips
  • Full Body Repaints

Wheel and Tire Repair

Even minor damage to your wheels and tires can cause major problems down the road. Bent, cracked, damaged wheels can cause uneven alignment and premature tire wear, even leading to dangerous blowouts.

Wheel damage can be sustained in many forms. Driving over potholes, having a minor collision or getting too close to a curb can all cause your wheels to bend or crack. Even if the issue is simply cosmetic, our shop can repair your wheels.

If your wheels have been damaged in an accident or minor incident, call Italy A&F Auto Repair. We will inspect your wheels and give you a fair quote. From curb damage to major accidents, we can fix it all.

Fender Benders

Fender benders are minor accidents that involve the bumper or fender of a vehicle. While these low-speed incidents are not serious, they can be costly to repair and should be handled by professionals who can give you the best price.

Tips & Advice

How often should I rotate my tires?

Your tires should be rotated every other oil change or every 5,000 miles. Neglecting to rotate tires is a major cause of premature tire wear.

Is it really necessary to replace my timing belt at the manufacturer’s recommended interval?

YES. The failure of a timing belt in many cars can result in major engine damage. The cost of repairing an engine with a broken timing belt is much greater than the cost of a timing belt replacement.

What does it mean if my “check engine” or “service engine soon” light comes on?

There are many sensors and computerized components that manage your vehicle’s engine performance and emissions. When one of these fails, the “check engine” light is illuminated. Although your car may
