Over time, your vehicle’s clutch can naturally degrade. As your car accumulates miles, the clutch disc will wear down if you do a lot of city driving requiring lots of stop-and-go and significant shifting.
Drive Shafts, U-Joints, Struts, and CV Axles
For the best performance and drivability of your vehicle, it is of utmost importance to have your driveshaft, axles, and CV joints regularly maintained.
Brakes ( Pads, Shoes, Rotors, Drums, Calipers, etc. )
One of the most important things about maintaining your vehicle is having your brakes respond the second you put your foot on it.
Free Test Drives (for diagnostics)
As North Carolina residents know, the weather can be very unpredictable and can cause some significant damage to your vehicle without your knowledge. During the changing seasons, it is important to have your vehicle serviced to check for any possible issues as a result of weather changes. While conducting a diagnostics test for your vehicle, our technician may ask about the nature of any problems your vehicle is experiencing, they will thoroughly inspect your vehicle, perform a computer diagnostics scan, and test drive your vehicle completely free of charge. This test drive is done only for the purpose of us figuring out any possible problems that we cannot physically see.
