Car Repair Tips and Tricks

Your Car Repair Options in The Metro Are Huge – What Do You Do?

The first thing you should do is maintain your car on a regular basis so you don’t have to many unforeseen repairs. Most of us are pretty spread out across the Twin City area and we rely heavily on our cars. You need to take care of your car so it takes care of you.

Next you need to have a repair shop that you know, like and trust. Don’t go from shop to shop with different repairs stick with one shop. They will get to know you and your car.

The benefits of that are obvious, the shop knows what has been done to your car, which may affect what they do in the future. They will work with you because of your loyalty. Sometimes you may just need an opinion, if you work with a shop that will sometimes be at no charge. Businesses tend to take care of their good customers.

Picking a car repair shop is not easy. Of course you can go to the dealer, the pros are they know how to fix your car. the cons are you will probably never talk to your mechanic. A different mechanic will work on your car every time you bring it in.  Dealerships are more expensive, are impersonal, won’t do you any favors, and will never use rebuilt parts, which can save you a ton of money.

Another choice is your franchise shops, you know the ones. Precision Tune, Midas, Goodyear, Firestone, Tires Plus, and so on. You might find a good one, but most of them aren’t focused on repair, they are more about tires, brakes, and mufflers. Plus most of what I said about dealerships apply to franchise shops. I have also had customers tell me that they thought the “mechanic” didn’t have a lot of experience.

Please don’t miss understand me, these are general comments and if these kind of shops work for you that’s great.

There are shops like mine, Lowry Imports that only repair cars and have been doing it for a long time. They care about you and your car and will do great work at a reasonable price so you come back. The will work with you on needed repairs. They will do things to get you by is cash is tight. They will give you advice you can trust.

That’s the kind of car repair shop you want to find, a good local mechanic the you will get to know, like and can trust.

Of course you can come and visit Lowry Imports anytime. :-)

Lowry Imports Can Help
Understanding how all of the parts work together is different from model to model. They way a car moves and handles can give the driver clues to possible problems ahead. If things just don’t seem right to you bring your car in and I will give you a FREE analysis of your cars suspension.
Here is just example of what your car may be telling you. When you step on the brakes you may notice your car has started to shutter. This could mean that your rotors over heated and warped. Or it could mean that one of your ball joints is going out. One of these is very serious, bring your car in anytime things just don’t seem right.
