Alaska is special and so are our vehicle maintenance intervals. At METRO, we have created a data-base of intervals specific to Arctic conditions.

Ensure that your vehicle is safe and reliable.
Next to brakes, struts are one of the most crucial safety concerns for vehicles in Alaska. Struts help mitigate frost heaves and give your car the ability to dodge obstacles like a moose in the road. Our tough climate prematurely wears the rubber seals on your struts, causing failure and alignment issues, making regular vehicle suspension inspection essential.

We Love Fairbanks!Metropolitan Garage began on a hillside in Goldstream Valley as an unfinished single-bay shop, attached to an unfinished house. It was really a modest garage with kids, ducks and chickens inside! As the shop grew, so did our staff, and as our family has matured, they have become an integral part of our expert team.
