Spring into March with Steering and Suspension

Spring into March with Steering and Suspension

Spring is just around the corner. While the season comes with warmer, joyous, and sunny days, it also means more rainy days. For instance, two sunny days might be followed by a day or two of rainfall. Suffice to say, your car's steering and suspension system are quite fundamental, especially when driving through wet, slippery, and rainy conditions. Additionally, you'll want to pay attention to how the steering and suspension systems perform after a long winter. Besides safety, steering and suspension systems also enhance the vehicle's comfort, making your ride smooth and controlled. The two systems operate in tandem to enhance your car's ride, facilitate easy control on the road and create the ultimate functionality and handling.

Tire Safety & Maintenance Tips

Tire Safety & Maintenance Tips

Well-maintained tires are an integral part of an optimally performing vehicle. Tires are always in contact with the ground, and they are essential when it comes to handling, steering, braking, and overall safety. Tire maintenance is simple, but it can make a big difference insofar as keeping you and other road users safe is concerned. Below are some tire maintenance tips that you can count on to ensure that you are safe when driving. Check Tire Tread Tire treads help your car keep a firm grip on the road, especially in icy or wet conditions. When they are significantly worn out, your car could slide and skid, and this might put your life in danger. Therefore, you need to regularly check your tire treads, and consider replacing the tires if the treads have worn down to 2/32 of an inch. Check Air Pressure Ensuring that your tires have the right air pressure can go a long way in improving durability, fuel efficiency, and even safety. Therefore, you need to read your user manual to kno ... read more

The Impact of Cold Weather Conditions on Your Vehicle

The Impact of Cold Weather Conditions on Your Vehicle

Baby, it's cold outside. Cold weather can impact your vehicle, but knowing what to look for goes a long way in preventing safety issues or unwelcomed repairs. Dead battery Winter is tough on your car's battery. If it's cold and your car won't start, the battery is likely dead. Fortunately, this issue is fixed easily by jumping the car. If you live where it gets extremely cold, battery warmers are an inexpensive option to aid in preventing dead batteries in cold weather. Underinflated tires With the dawn of tire sensor systems, you've likely seen the tire pressure warning illuminate at the first sign of cold weather. The air in your tires has contracted, resulting in low tire pressure. Driving on underinflated tires causes uneven tread wear. It's good practice to check your tire pressure more often when it's cold. Those living in the extreme cold might consider winter tires. Ice in the fuel line The age ... read more

Can I Trust Auto Repair Shops?

Can I Trust Auto Repair Shops?

We’ve made it our mission here at Best Auto Repair Experience to gain the absolute trust of our customers with our superior customer service and full transparency. It’s no secret that there are many vehicle owners out there that simply do not trust auto repair shops. Most of them have had negative experiences at a dishonest place, such as a mechanic recommending a service that the customer just had done only weeks before. While there are always going to be bad shops out there, the truth is that only a handful of auto repair shops are dishonest.  AAA conducted a survey in 2016 which revealed that 2 out of 3 vehicle owners reported that they do not trust mechanics. The primary reasons that were given for this distrust were being overcharged for services or being pushed to pay for additional services they didn’t need. Both of these reasons were based on negative past experiences that the vehicle owner had. While this may be relatable for most, it is shocking to a s ... read more

Do Auto Repair Shops Offer Payment Plans?

Do Auto Repair Shops Offer Payment Plans?

Air Conditioning Services and Signs of Potential Failures

Air Conditioning Services and Signs of Potential Failures

The heat is in full force here in Cartersville, GA, and having a working vehicle A/C system is so important to the comfort and safety of your drive. Did you know that even in 70 degrees Fahrenheit weather, the inside of a car parked in direct sunlight can continue to rise in temperature up to 40 degrees each hour? While some say you can drive safely in the hot summer heat with the windows down in a car, the truth is that being uncomfortable isn’t the only side effect of a hot vehicle. The heat will cause perspiration, which means you and your passengers will need to stay hydrated properly throughout the ride. Heat exhaustion and dehydration can lead to heatstroke, which can be deadly. With all of that being said, we want to encourage you to check your vehicle’s air conditioning now before the real heat arrives. Getting any issues taken care of quickly will ensure that you have a working air conditioning system in your car when you need it. Here at Best Auto Repair Experie ... read more
