Some states have already made driving while using a cell phone illegal, and it’s highly discouraged in every part of the U.S. But there are many more distractions in the car than just talking on the phone or texting. Fortunately, voice control software has reached the point where many different devices in the car can be controlled by voice commands. However, not everyone can afford these extras, and they’re still fairly expensive. Here are some of the most common things people use their hands for instead of driving and their safer alternatives.
A part of car ownership involves vehicle maintenance and the occasional shopping trip to replace obsolete auto parts. Whether the parts aim to maintain the function of the vehicle, or you’re looking to improve the appearances of your vehicle, shopping will present a whole new challenge if you can’t determine the difference between OEM and Aftermarket Parts.
Let’s talk shocks and struts. Shock absorbers last a long time and wear out pretty slowly, so I guess you could say they’re easy to take for granted. But your shocks and struts do a very important job, so you need to pay attention to them. They keep your tires on the road, and your tires are what connect your vehicle to the road and allow you to safely handle your car through turns, over bumps and even stop efficiently. So what happens when your shocks or struts are worn?
We just passed the 30th anniversary of the original Back To The Future movie. (30 years?! Seriously?!) Obviously, for car buffs this immediately brings to mind the ultimate time machine…the DeLorean! (With the flux capacitor option, of course.) Today we look at the history of that iconic car, made in Belfast, with its sleek stainless steel exterior and gull wing doors.

You probably take them for granted. You’re constantly checking it to see how fast or slow you’re going. You check it to see how much gasoline you have left, or how far you’ve traveled. It’s your instrument cluster! They range from the clean and simple to astoundingly complex. Ever wonder what all those indicator lights in the instrument cluster mean? What other functions does it perform?
Great shop, very friendly, Nice to have someone you can trust.
I have been using this shop for about 2 years now. It is clean and they have accommodations for the customers, like water, coffee , pastry, and soda. They even have multiple phone chargers for your use. The guys are always friendly and attenative. They always get me right in. The prices are fair and reasonable. They stand behind their work. No extra or unexpected charges. Great place to have your vehicle serviced or repaired.
