Firkins has been providing new and used cars to Bradenton since 1953. This dealership has a service center to fix mechanical problems, and a body shop to repair cosmetic damage. If you prefer to fix some problems yourself, the service center also carries parts direct from the manufacturer. It's also willing to order a part if you need something it doesn't have in stock. If repairs are going to take longer than a day, Firkins offers a courtesy drop-off service. Furthermore, there is a branch of Payless Car Rental on-site.
