If you’re starting to hear squeaks or a grinding noise, it’s time to get your brakes inspected. One of our technicians will give you a thorough inspection for free and then recommend a solution for you. We stock name brand brake pads and brake shoes and can resurface your drums or rotors to make sure your car is braking the way it should be.
Keeping your car on a regular service schedule will make sure that you can put as many miles as possible on your vehicle and that you don’t run into bigger problems down the road. Your owners manual will tell you when to bring the car in for service. If you don’t have it anymore, you can give us a call and we will recommend something for your specific vehicle.
Your engine uses oil to reduce wear on all the moving parts but over time it does break down. Most cars recommend an oil change between every 3000-5000 miles so make sure to check the owners manual. When you’re ready, our oil change includes up to 5 quarts of a name brand oil, a name brand oil filter and a courtesy vehicle inspection. For an additional fee, we can include a high performance or high mileage oil for you.
Having a working heating and cooling system in your car is essential to being comfortable when driving. The coolant that runs through it must be maintained otherwise, it can start to degrade other components like the hoses and gaskets. Degraded coolant can also lead to premature water pump failure due to deteriorated seals. Thankfully, this can be avoided with regular coolant flushes at intervals recommended by your manufacture.
Winter time can wreak havoc on your vehicle, destroying your tires, chassis, battery and more. Let our technicians inspect your car before it’s too late. Along with topping off your fluids, they can recommend any preventative work that can be done to make sure you don’t get stranded in the snow with unexpected maintenance bills.
Your vehicles heating and cooling system is constructed out of many different components that are often buried deep with in the car. This makes it difficult to find out which part is actually causing the problem.

A properly working suspension system will help you stay in control on the road and can even reduce your braking distance. After 50,000 miles though, your suspension has cycled about 85 million times and is ready to be replaced. Studies show that if your suspension is worn out, a new set could reduce your braking distance by up to 10 feet!
Suspension Warning Signs to Look Out For
- Fluid leaking out of the shocks or struts
- Steering is stiffer than normal
- The vehicle nose dives when you apply the brakes
- Abnormal tire wear
- Your ride is bumpy or sways when you turn
- Grinding or buzzing noises

Your exhaust system is used to move all of the poisonous gasses away from your vehicle and out into the atmosphere. It typically starts at the exhaust manifold and flows through the catalytic converter, the resonator, the muffler and finally the tail pipe. If any of these parts are not working properly, then power problems can develop or worse, harmful gasses could be leaking into the passenger cabin, putting you at risk.
Exhaust Warning Signs To Look Out For
- Overly noisy engine
- Decreased power or acceleration
- Hissing or popping noises
- The smell of gas or something burning
- Reduced gas mileage
