Finding the right fit for you and your vehicle

Any type of small business is really about relationships and the better you build a relationship whatever service you are looking for, as a rule I think these things work out.   If you're going to choose a Automotive repair facility in your local area, take your car in for a simple thing like an oil change. Get to know the people there, see if you are comfortable. Over a period of time you get more comfortable knowing "my car is being looked after properly."   Pay attention to those lights coming on, pay attention to a strange noise. Don't be afraid to pick up the phone and ask a question “The only stupid question is the one never asked, and in this case it could save you hundreds, thousands of dollars -- just by picking up the phone.

Seven Signs you need brake work done

Seven Signs You Need Brake Work Done Posted on February 10, 2015 by Eli Banayan Safety is a top consideration for drivers. While today’s cars offer more safety features than ever, from passive devices like air bags to active features such as stability control, nothing replaces careful attention to the most fundamental safety feature: brakes. An annual brake inspection should be at the top of every motorist’s to-do list. Better yet, year-round attention to braking performance and developing the habit of listening for signs that brakes need attention should be part of every wise driver’s skillset. Check it out! Here are 7 signs your brakes need to be inspected: 1. Feel any drag? Be alert to brakes that seem to stick, wheels that are hot or an engine that seems to lose power. The brakes may be failing to release; alternately, the condition could reverse, leaving you with no brakes at all. 2. There’s a pull. Does the vehicle pull to the left or right whe ... read more

Winter is coming, what service should we do? First and upmost should be a comprehensive vehicle inspection. Winter time, wiper blades, tires, and brakes are most important. Going to visit relatives during the holidays? Want peace of mind? Performing a complete 45 point vehicle inspection is very important. Tire pressures should be checked and adjusted as needed. Inspection of dried out wiper blades from summer heat. Engine and fuel induction service. Spark plug replacement or inspection. Winter gasoline is different than summer gasoline. Winter fuel can cause drivability issues if tune components are marginal. Poor visibility at night? Headlamp candle power marginal? Headlamp lens cleaning needed? We use our headlights more in winter than summer. Most plastic headlamp lenses can be polished out to remove the oxidation build up. Winter especially, but should have all year long an emergency kit stored in your vehicle

Why is repairing newer vehicles today different than the last 10-15 years?

The vehicles are completely different today as we all know. We have onboard computers / modules that tune your vehicle as you drive. There is no tune-up per say any more. Ignition and fuel related parts are changed at specific intervals. We have engine management systems, transmission management systems, and even body control management systems. There are specific fluids for vehicles, no more 1 coolant fits all for example. For all the extensive technology that is used in today’s vehicles, repairing is completely different. We have basic charging systems that are not basic any more ( eg. Stop/start idle vehicles). With technology changing and is more complicated, repairs and service’s become more complicated
