Poughkeepsie Alternators and Starters Repair | Foreign Car Specialists

You will never have to worry about this team trying to sell you on services you don’t need and if it’s only a battery issue, you will know! 

We have experience with alternators and starters, but how do you know which it is? Signs it’s the alternator includes: weak or dead battery, dim lights, warning light, funny smell, or odd sound. Signs it’s the starter include a whining noise without the engine turning over, smoke or a burning smell, or a grinding noise when trying to start your vehicle. Unfortunately, it’s hard to differentiate whether it’s a problem with the alternator, starter, or battery.

“They are great! They absolutely will take care of you. Rick behind the counter is one of the nicest guys I have ever met. If your car is out of warranty, they will do everything they can to fix your problem so that you are not stuck having to pay the ridiculous prices from your dealer. The first time I visited I was apprehensive because it's located right in the city of Poughkeepsie. However shortly after sitting in the waiting room and actually seeing how they operate I became very comfortable. Since then I have been back at least 4 times to have a clutch repaired, oil change and now tires. Every time I come in Rick remembers me by name and we can have a conversation about almost anything. I sincerely give this place the best rating because they deserve it. But don't take my word on it. Come in and see for yourself.” -- Marc H.
