Hit A Pothole Or Curb? Get Your Alignment Checked ASAP!
One of our favorites, The Monday Morning Mechanic, shows how hitting a pothole or curb can lead to broken shocks and struts and misaligned wheels. These can lead to decreased fuel efficiency, tires that wear much faster than normal, and wasted money. Your best bet is to bring your vehicle into a trusted ASE-Certified auto repair shop (May I suggest Elite Auto Repair?) and have your alignment checked along with your shocks and struts! Come in for a front end alignment check today!
The discount oil change at the big national chain store, it’s so alluring. Just look at all you get for $14.95, or #19.95! Or could you possibly be getting more (or less) than you bargained for? The old sayings still apply…”there’s no free lunch” and “if it’s too good to be true, it probably is”. We don’t intend to pick on a particular chain, today’s story just happens to have occurred at a Jiffy Lube, and was caught on camera by a news team.
Steering is one of the things we take for granted in our vehicles. So, what are some of the things you should know about taking better care of your steering system? I like to think of steering in two areas. First, the power assist, and second, the actual parts that steer the vehicle. I’ll bet most people under forty have never driven a car or truck without power steering.
