If you’re searching for tire pressure monitoring system service (TPMS) or other auto repairs local to New Orleans Parish and Greater New Orleans, look no further than the auto mechanics at Uptown Auto Specialist in Jefferson. From the moment you arrive at our auto repair shop for TPMS service, we are going that extra mile to ensure your customer experience is stress-free and exceptional.

One of the safety systems featured on newer vehicles today, TPMS employs electronic sensors that report real-time tire air-pressure information to the driver of the vehicle, typically on the dashboard via a warning light, pictogram, or actual air-pressure numbers. The TPMS system is designed to warn you that at least one or more tires are significantly under-inflated, possibly creating unsafe driving conditions.

We believe you and your vehicle deserve a complete and up-to-date repair. The team of auto mechanics at Uptown Auto Specialist combines expertise, experience, and education. Owner Paul Cosma goes to great lengths to ensure he and our staff stay up to date on advancements in car repairs, including TPMS and other new active safety technologies installed on new vehicles today. He’s proud of our business' professional technicians, all of whom annually receive authentic automaker factory training on specific vehicle systems, new diagnostic techniques introduced by automakers, as well as evolving automaker-specific service information and how it applies to various auto repair procedures.

These resources are essential to safe and complete auto repair today, so we partially offset these investments by charging a prorated fee for the vehicles we service each year. It’s how we service and repair your vehicles without compromise. Other competitors may choose not to keep their knowledge, skills, information resources, or equipment current so they can charge less, but we won’t shortchange your vehicle’s health, longevity or performance.

The tenure of our auto mechanics ranges from 5 to 25 years of proven NOLA auto repair experience. That matters, given New Orleans’ predisposition to heavy rains. For example, besides TPMS service and replacement, Uptown Auto Specialist offers two services unique to the NOLA climate: (1) detailed pre-purchase inspections, with images and documentation, so customers know a used car is in good condition before they buy it; and (2) we can provide complete restoration for flooded automobiles. Flood damage and rust are also some of the items we check in a pre-purchase inspection.

Our customers tell us they appreciate us taking the stress and confusion out of their auto care. Here’s a five-star review shared by a happy customer:
