Watch for spongy, noisy, or vibrating brakes
We check all brake pads - regular, metallic, and ceramic
Don't use pads lower than manufacturer's recommendation
Check brake fluid - it maintains braking pressure and power

Modern cars can break down
Today's automotive fluids contain higher percentages of additives than in the past to protect your vehicle's components from wear and corrosion.
A staffer had a pickup truck overheat, despite having the correct coolant levels. The radiator pan was corroded and was dumping the coolant. It had only been topped off, and never replaced. The coolant became acidic and degraded the radiator pan.
Another staffer found that the Washington State safety inspection law required him to have his SUV checked every two years. He benefited from it, as he had worn rear brake pads, the sound of which drowned out the radio, DVD player, and his kids. The rear brake rotors were damaged, with the right one being replaced entirely.
Annual inspections can save you from paying more later, especially since we'll provide a FREE brake inspection.
Taking proper care of your vehicle will help keep it running for miles to come. Let our experienced team provide you with reliable auto repairs, including brakes, suspensions, exhausts, and engines and electrical systems.
Find out how far you'll travel, the types of roads you'll be traveling on, the terrain, the weight you will be carrying, whether you'll bear a rooftop carrier or tow a trailer, and the potential elements you'll encounter
Inspect shocks and struts beforehand
Ensure top suspension and alignment for comfort
Ensure your brakes are in good working order
Check your belts and hoses
Change the engine air filter
Get an oil change to prevent overexertion of cooling systems and your transmission
Check your AC, wiper blades, and headlights for comfort, visibility, and safety
We'll help check, replace, and rotate your tires
Not just as simple as driving less and saving gas
Replacing your engine air filter is an underrated method of saving fuel
Ensure proper oil level - too little prevents your engine from being properly lubricated, causing extra friction that impinges upon your fuel economy
Dirty oil also causes extra friction - keep oil lines clean
Your transmission needs clean fluid to work efficiently - more fuel is consumed with less efficient transmissions
