Bad brakes display warning signs for impending brake maintenance. If your brakes squeal or grind when in use or pull to one side when braking, then this may point to worn brakes!
Our ASE certified technicians can inspect:
If your shocks are worn out there may be leaking (oil or wetness) on the outside of the shock or strut. While weak shocks and struts won't necessarily create a driving hazards if you continue to drive on them, there are studies that show worn shocks increase the distance it takes to stop a vehicle on a rough surface. Increasing the risk of skidding.
Its cheaper to change your oil than to change your engine! Depending on the car you should have the oil changed every 3-5,000 miles or 3 months for less wear and tear on the engine. If any of the steering or suspension parts can be lubed, our technicians will take care of that with a lube, oil and filter service.
Tire rotation is critical to gain maximum life from your tire investment. It refers to the regular practice of switching the position of each tire on the car to help equalize tread wear.
Why worry about tire balance? Because as much as just 1/4 an ounce of a difference on your tire rotating can cause serious vibration and wobble. To balance tires, our technicians place tiny offsetting weights at specific points around the wheel.

Your radiator protects your engine and air conditioning condenser from overheating. It also plays an important role with the computer controlled system.

The primary function of your cars suspension and steering systems is to allow the wheels to move independently of the car, while keeping it "suspended" and stable.

Vehicle alignment is closely tied to the condition of the suspension and steering systems.
Most vehicle break downs in Cleveland Ohio are related to belts, hoses and cooling system problems.
