To keep your vehicle running at peak performance, we provide undercar services that include:
Wheel alignment (or simply alignment) is standard car maintenance that involves adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the manufacturer's specifications. The main purpose is to let the suspension and the steering systems operate at their desired angles - this reduces tire wear. Alignment is a complicated process and not all mechanics get it right. To have experts handle your car's alignment, visit John's Service Center.
Anti-lock brakes prevent wheel lock-up when rapidly decelerating by automatically modulating the brake pressure during an emergency stop. With this system, the wheels are able to maintain traction with the road while braking. Failure of the anti-lock brakes could lead to an increase in the risks of multiple vehicle crashes and run-off road crashes. To avoid this, have your anti-lock brake system checked and repaired by experts. At John's Service Center, we have anti-lock brake experts who will examine and repair your faulty ABS - keeping you safe.
A brake is a mechanical device for slowing or stopping a vehicle (usually by means of friction). In short, a brake inhibits your car's motion. It lets you stop the car whenever and wherever you choose. Brakes are one of the most important parts of a motor vehicle. Without them, you would not be able to stop the car. If your vehicle's brakes are having issues, consider having them worked on. Brake experts at John's Service Center can work on your car's brakes to ensure you have a safe drive.
A chassis is the car's internal framework that supports the body and other parts like the wheels, engine, transmission, driveshaft, differential, and suspension. A weak or damaged chassis will translate to a weak car. To have a strong and properly working vehicle, have your car's chassis checked for defects. At John's Service Center, there are experienced undercar service providers who can work on your chassis.
A driveline is a part of your motor vehicle that connects the engine and the transmission to the wheel axles. The driveline consists of the parts of the powertrain less the engine and transmission. Failure of the driveline means that the car would not move since energy cannot be transmitted from the engine to the wheel axles. Therefore, make sure that your car's driveline is regularly inspected and serviced. And, at John's Service Center, you can have the driveline serviced by experts.
In a motor vehicle, an exhaust system is a piping used to guide exhaust fumes away from the engine - usually to the rear of the vehicle. A properly functioning exhaust system not only sounds better, it is better - for you, your car, and the environment. John's Service Center has expert technicians to service your car's exhaust system.
Shocks (or shock absorbers) are mechanical devices designed to smooth out rough roads. The devices do this by converting kinetic energy to another form of energy. Properly working shocks reduce the effect of traveling over rough ground, leading to improved ride quality and vehicle handling. When shocks develop problems, driving on poorly leveled roads becomes unpleasant, and your vehicle may sway when turning. To have your vehicle's shocks diagnosed and repaired, visit John's Service Center today.
As tires get older, they lose traction and deteriorate from the inside out, increasing the likelihood of a tire bursting. This can cause a rapid loss of control of your vehicle. To have a better performing vehicle, you need to make sure the tires are in good condition. For all your tire needs, contact John's Service Center today.
I was looking for a reputable repair shop to take my car for service. My neighbors recommended John's. I first took my car for state inspection and oil/filter change. I was in and out in less than an hour. On another occasion my son thought he needed a battery for his truck. We stopped in at John's as he was going to lunch, but he took the truck in and replaced the battery. My wife took her car to several local shops including some dealerships due to a loud roar in the front. She was told she needed a hub bearing. The price of repair ranged from 600-800 dollars and about 4hrs to perform the repairs. I took her car to John's who was booked full all week. I explained my wife had to go out of town for Christmas and was afraid to drive it with a bad bearing. I was told to bring it in tomorrow morning. He did the work for less than all the other shops and completed the work in about two hours. Again, this shows a business that cares about customer satisfaction. Needless to say, John's Service Center has won over my entire family and we have found a place that appreciates our business. I highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a decent place to service your vehicle needs.
