Experience The Parra Car Care Difference With Our Free 32 Point Inspections

The best way to get the most value from your vehicle is to head off potential problems before they happen. At Parra Car Care, our ASE-certified mechanics carry out a 32-point vehicle inspection that covers all these potential problems. You’ll have the assurance that we’ve inspected and checked every system in the vehicle to the highest standards. We’ll send the results to your smartphone, and our service staff will be available to answer questions and schedule any recommended service and auto repair work at your request.

Consider Parra a member of your car care team! Help us maintain our standard of excellence at all levels of auto inspections, including any required state car inspection. Here are the steps that will allow us to go beyond your expectations:

STEP ONE: Let Us Know Your Concerns When You Schedule An Appointment

If you have any specific concerns about your vehicle, give us the details right away. Do you hear a new noise? Smell an odor you have never noticed before? Is the car pulling to one side? Nothing is too small to mention.

It also helps us to know how you drive your car. Do you have a long commute every day? Is it in stop-and-go traffic? Do you regularly haul heavy loads? The answer to these questions points us in an important direction regarding wear and tear on your car or truck.


Your car is an important part of your life for work and family responsibilities. Our superior customer care program begins before we do any work on your car. We offer our drop-off option for after business hours or a complimentary shuttle service. We aim to take the burden of car care appointments off you.

Parra Car Care is simply the best at what it does! Come in now to meet the rest of our car care team and start building a solid working relationship with us today!

STEP THREE: Interactive Online Inspection Report

After this vehicle inspection, we can send the resulting reports directly to your smartphone if you wish. These reports will show you exactly what the mechanics saw during the inspection. If your vehicle’s air filter is dirty, you’ll see a photo of it so you can decide whether to have us change it immediately or wait. We’ll do this for all your vehicle’s components and keep these reports and photos in our database for future reference. This will be helpful for comparison at your next inspection as your car ages.

We’ll take photos of your vehicle’s exterior, test results, and inspection stickers for our records. And, of course, Parra Car Care prides itself on providing honest feedback, advice, and fair prices for every customer.

SPECIAL FEATURES: Photo References & Tire Check

We won’t just tell you that your air filter is getting a little dirty. Our mechanics make sure to take photos of any problem areas identified in your vehicle so we can show you exactly what’s going on. Photos of the exterior of your vehicle are also taken for records, as well as pictures of test results and inspection stickers.

Texas State Vehicle Inspection


According to The Texas Department of Public Safety, “vehicles registered in Texas are required to pass an annual inspection to ensure compliance with safety standards. While safety inspections are required throughout the state, emissions testing is required of vehicles inspected in 17 Texas counties to comply with federally mandated clean air requirements. Vehicle inspections are performed at Official Vehicle Inspection Stations licensed by DPS.” Please refer to their website for your vehicle.

Parra Car Care can carry out the state vehicle inspection if your vehicle requires it.

We Offer Fleet Service Contracts


Our fleet customers have one primary concern: Keeping all their vehicles safely on the road as often as possible. If a vehicle breaks down or is in the shop for service, their businesses lose time and money. We work with our fleet service accounts to provide time-efficient maintenance that doesn’t keep vehicles in the shop for long periods. Regular preventative inspections are essential to our fleet customers. We focus on coming up with long-term solutions and affordable prices.

Great job on the 100,000 mile tune up for my 2012 Honda CRV. Parra is honest and fair unlike the dealership “service advisers” that invent problems about your car. It is important to me to not have to worry about the condition of my vehicle. In addition, the NRH location is more convenient than where dealerships are located in relation to home.


The repair experience was very positive in all respects, from my first call to the completion of the work. They were polite, friendly & very professional. I won’t hesitate to call on Parra again.


They have a great team from the office manager to the technicians as they were very polite and professional in every way. My vehicle was inspected, the problem found, and I was called and informed what my options were. They replaced the part same day and had it completed that afternoon. I would highly recommend them for any service needs.


Great, honest service. I know I can trust you guys to give me an honest assessment of what my car needs and then to perform the work at a reasonable rate. That’s incredibly valuable…thank you!


Personal, friendly and professional service is the standard at Parra. They deliver what the big franchise dealers are unable or unwilling to. I found Parra about a year ago and they have made me a lifelong client.
