Your vehicle produces toxic fumes. The exhaust system is put in place to prevent harmful substances from entering the cabin while also reducing the amount of pollution your vehicle releases into the air. If your car is making more noise than usual, it’s likely your exhaust is malfunctioning and should be inspected.
We all know the importance of our vehicle’s brakes. Functional brakes are not only vital to the safety of you and your passengers but also to the performance of your car. To prevent costly brake repairs or malfunctioning brakes, we recommend an annual service of your brake parts. Listen for a squealing sound as this might indicate worn brakes or caliper issues. Come visit our team for an inspection any time you hear an odd sound or any other irregularities in your vehicle’s performance.

These are called constant velocity joints, they allow your transmission to transfer torque to the wheels and provide a smooth ride with a full range of motion.
