A big part of vehicle ownership is properly maintaining your vehicle. One thing that almost every owner should be used to is taking their vehicle in for a regularly scheduled tune-up! These tune-ups give technicians a chance to repair and replace the components in your vehicle that are suffering from wear-and-tear. From brake pad replacement or a wheel alignment, the tune-up gives your vehicle a chance to get properly readjusted, just like if you visited a chiropractor.

Signs of brake wear come in many shapes and forms, with the most common signs being a spongy brake pedal and strange sounds such as squeaking, squealing, or grinding. If you notice any sign of brake wear, it’s important to have your vehicle serviced right away. Without properly functioning brakes, every drive you have will be a dangerous one that could lead to severe consequences.
If you notice minor or major shaking when you drive your vehicle, your vehicle may be knocked off alignment. The vibrations are typically caused when the wheels of your vehicle aren’t properly angled and working against each other. By visiting our shop, we’ll be able to quickly realign your wheels and get rid of the pesky rumbling. If left unattended, it could make operating your vehicle a lot more difficult and dangerous!
When you are operating your transmission system, the gears should shift smoothly and accurately. If you notice that there is a slight hitch or hesitation when you are shifting gears, that is a clear sign that something is wrong with your transmission system. Manual drivers will notice this when they are shifting gears in general, while automatic drivers will notice this during their shift from “Park” to “Drive.”
