The Original Full Serve Garage



There are some crazy drivers out there. To be safe on the road, you better be able to stop!

Today’s vehicles have complex braking systems that are designed to give you control of your vehicle in all types of weather. If your ABS system or traction control isn’t working the way it was designed, you are putting yourself in danger. Keep an eye on your dashboard for lights indicating brake problems.

At Abita Garage, we inspect, service and repair all types of brakes, stability and traction control systems for all types of vehicles.  If you don’t trust your brakes, swing by the shop.  But please, pull in slowly!

Air Conditioning

Here in South Louisiana, you’ve got to have good AC. At Abita Garage, you can rely on us to keep you cool and comfortable. When your air conditioning doesn’t work right, you are not just driving in a hot car, but you may not be able to clear the inside of your windshield during rainy weather. That’s not safe.

Here at Abita’s original full service garage, we have the skill, equipment and years of experience to diagnose your problem right, the first time. No air conditioning issue is too difficult or too complicated for our team.

There is no reason to suffer through a hot car ride. If you just need an 0-ring, that’s what you’ll get. If the compressor is shot, you know we’ll stand behind our work. Contact Abita Garage and let us help you to make sure your air conditioning is working right.

Engines & Transmissions

Your drive train (engine & transmission) is a series of complex components and systems.  When one starts to fail, it can effect your car’s overall performance. Whether you have an automatic or manual transmission, an efficient 4 cylinder engine or a heavy duty diesel, the Technicians at the Abita Garage can find the problem and fix it.

Pay attention to your Check Engine light. When it comes on, your vehicle is trying to communicate with you.  Don’t panic. But don’t assume it doesn’t require attention. If your Check Engine light is flashing, your vehicle requires immediate attention and you should stop by the shop as soon as possible.

Also pay attention to any changes in your vehicle’s behavior including jerking, grinding, stalling, slow acceleration, strange odors, vibrations or sounds. Explain any changes in detail to the team and they will make sure to check it out.

Full Fluid Services Available



Sometimes the most basic services are the ones that keep your car on the road and out of the shop. Regular fluid services, like oil changes, coolant flushes and transmission servicing can keep your car running better, longer.

Over time, the fluids in your car will break down, losing their ability to do what they were designed to do. Oil becomes contaminated by dirt and other materials, which can prevent it from protecting the most sensitive parts of your engine. Transmission fluid not only lubricates expensive parts, it also cools and provides the pressure necessary to shift gears.

At the Abita Garage, we can take care of all of these services and more. We perform all types of fluid services including those for the cooling system, brake system, power steering system and transmission on an as needed basis or as required by repair or your owner’s manual. You’ll have confidence knowing that your car is being maintained and will be ready to go when you are.

Tires & Suspension

You know what they say, “The chrome don’t get you home!” Tire and suspension issues can not only cause a bumpy ride, but can quickly put you on the side of the road, or worse.

If your tires or suspension are wearing out, your car may be hard to control while making a quick stop or turn. Your suspension system works with your brakes and your tires to ensure that your car stays level and under control. Keeping your tires and suspension in check is an important step in car care.

We are happy to inspect your tires or excessive or abnormal wear.  This is often the first sign your suspension is failing.  The tire & suspension experts at Abita’s original full service garage will also help you choose tires that fits your vehicle and budget.

State Inspection Stickers

Officer Friendly is always on the lookout for expired inspection stickers.  Not only does this generate revenue for the State, but it protects other drivers for cars that shouldn’t be on the road.  Abita Garage a licensed Auto Inspection Station by the State of Louisiana.  Our certified vehicle inspectors will inspect your general vehicle based on the State Standard Requirements and update your inspection sticker.

At the time of a vehicle inspection all drivers must present:

Have a problem that might not pass?  We’ll let you know and quote you a price for the repairs.


Ready to grill but the tank’s empty?  Man that’s not going to work!  Don’t spend more at one of those expensive tank swaps at the big box store.  Swing by the shop and we will be happy to fill your approved propane tank.


Don't Trust A Clown with Your Car.
