Steering & Suspension
The steering and suspension systems of a car are not only important for safety reasons but also to enhance the comfort of your car’s ride. The two systems are directly related to each other, which is why they are often referred to together.
Improvements in steering and suspension systems, increased strength and durability of components, and advances in tire design and construction have made large contributions to riding comfort and to safe driving in recent years.
A wheel alignment will keep your vehicle running safely and efficiently by promoting reduced tire wear, better gas mileage, and safer driving conditions. Wheels out of alignment will contribute to uneven tire wear. Uneven tread wear can be felt in a vehicle pulling to the right or left while in motion. Left untreated, wheel alignment issues have the potential to turn into steering and suspension issues, since driving with wheels out of alignment not only puts stress on your tires but also on suspension components.
Your brakes are one of the hardest working parts of your vehicle. Our shop offers complete brake services for our customers and we offer everything from brake line repair to complete brake pad, rotor and brake caliper replacement.
Regular engine tune-ups bring power and efficiency back to your car. At Lake Country Auto, we visually inspect all of your engine components and install new parts (including spark plugs and fuel filters) as needed. A regular engine tune-up will lower emissions, improve fuel economy and restore lost power.
To control vehicle emissions and improve performance and fuel economy, we provide a monitoring system that continuously checks the readings from various sensors and turns on the “Check Engine” or “Service Engine soon” light when a sensor is not providing the correct information to the computer. Whenever the “Check Engine” or “Service Engine Soon” light appears, there is a service code, often called the trouble code, stored in the computer’s memory circuit that can be extracted and used to help troubleshoot the problem.
At Lake Country Auto, we welcome new clients, and your vehicle could not be in better hands. We provide:
- Servicing of All Makes and Models
- State-of-the-Art Diagnostic and Repair Equipment
