Spotted: Mid-Engine Corvette

There have been a lot of camouflaged prototypes for the highly anticipated mid-engine Chevrolet Corvette. The eighth-generation Chevrolet Corvette will switch to the mid-engine configuration for the first time in the model’s history. Two prototypes were spotted testing on the Nurburgring, ditching the loose black rags to expose a more form-fitting spotted white camo underneath.

When viewing a prototype you get a better view of the C8’s front end, which looks very little like that of the front-engine C7. The front valance features large intake vents on either side and a large splitter juts out from beneath the front lip. The headlights don’t appear to be production-spec.

There’s a large vent in front of the rear wheel and the mid-engine Corvette’s body has lines running across the doors and fenders. It also has significantly widened hips and in the back, the Corvette’s characteristic four-lamp taillights peek through the camo. There have also been glimpses of its square-tipped quad-exhaust and a new wing.  

Exact specs are not known, but there have been rumors that two-dual-overhead-cam V-8 engines will be offered. The front brakes feature one large multi-piston caliper, but you can see a second caliper opposite the primary clamping unit. The mid-engine proportions are very apparent when viewed from the side.

It’s expected that the mid-engined Corvette or C8 will be a bit heavier than the current car’s roughly 3500 pounds, but according to caranddriver.com, “it will compensate for that with about 500 horsepower from the LT1”. Thanks to the increased traction of rearward weight bias and a quick-shifting transaxle, it’ll be quicker than the C7.

The mid-engined Corvette will need massive amounts of airflow, meaning the entire leading plane of the nose will be open to the air and packed full of heat exchangers. The C8 will extract engine-compartment heat through vents below the taillights on the rear fascia. Combustion gases will be fed through an exhaust that includes the familiar dual-mode system to maximize airflow and noise generation at high engine loads.    

General Motors wants to replace the traditional hydraulic master-and slave-cylinder mechanism with an electronic actuator in the transmission triggered by a sensor on the clutch pedal. If they proceed, at the moment it’s just a rumor, this system would make for a much simpler clutch actuation system, which would certainly be helpful in a mid-engine car with the transmission at the rear. So what kind of engine can it possibly have?

As mentioned the engine will be heavier as it could possibly use a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox sourced from Tremec. Of its seven speeds, the top three are overdrives and Tremec says it can handle 9000 rpm input speed and 664 lb-ft of torque. According to Car and Driver, they argue that Chevy will only offer this Corvette with one gearbox to reduce cost and complexity, “but a world without a manual-transmission ‘Vette is hard to imagine”.     

According to a 2017 leak by gmauthority.com, the mid-engine Corvette will likely be offered with the following three engines:

  • Naturally-aspirated 6.2-liter V-8 LT1, which makes a maximum of 460 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque in the C7 Corvette Stingray with the Z51 package.
  • Twin-turbo 4.2-liter V-8 DOHC (Double Over Head Cam) engine making in the vicinity of 600 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque.
  • Twin-turbo 5.5-liter V-8 DOHC engine making in the vicinity of 700 horsepower and 700 pound-feet of torque.     

The engines will likely be manufactured at the GM Tonawanda powertrain plant. The mid-engined Corvette will likely be offered with a choice of two transmissions – a seven-speed manual or a 10-speed automatic. The market forecast has the majority of volume going to the 6.2L V8 with 14,000 units produced annually from 2019 to 2021.

2019 Chevrolet Impala Miami Lakes

Chevrolet Impala Production Extended

2019 Chevrolet Impala Miami Lakes

General Motors will continue to produce the Impala despite making plans to end its run; at least for a little while. The 2019 Chevrolet Impala large sedan was expected to see its production run through June 2019, but plans have been pushed back to January 2020. With seven additional months of making this vehicle, GM is hoping to finish off the demand this vehicle carries. The 2019 Chevy Impala carries upgraded and advanced technology features in safety technology like Forward Collision Alert. Let’s explore why GM will keep this vehicle running a little longer.

New Technology Sticking Around For A While Longer

The 2019 Chevrolet Impala provides a 2.5-Liter ECOTEC direct injected 4-cylinder engine that has stop/start technology and carries a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Part of the reason for that high rating is due to having 10 standard airbags for every trim. Aside from safe, the 2019 Chevrolet Impala is fast and sleek. Owners can opt for the 3.6-Liter direction injection V6 engine that offers 305 horsepower. The 2019 Impala represents a refined interior with owners gaining an 8-inch touchscreen, a nice size for drivers when using the Rear Vision Camera. The Premier trim offers Rear Cross Traffic Alert standard and Forward Collision Alert is available. Impala owners gain Apple Carplay and Android Auto with every trim. The technology offered in the Chevy Impala is a large reason General Motors will look to continue the large sedan’s production into next year.

GM Production Continues

As far as the production goes, there are plans to close the Detroit-Hamtramck plant in 2020. GM has said they notified all employees, dealers, and suppliers of the changes. This is one of potentially four factories in the United States that could close. The extension of the Chevrolet Impala makes sense as it still provides customers with quality. As pickup trucks and SUVs continue to grow in popularity, this is one vehicle that will remain on the market. General Motor expects to save about $6 billion in cash flow by the end of next year. Those generous savings will help to allow them to invest in future technologies like automation and electrification. To test-drive the latest Chevy vehicles, come to Miami Lakes Automall today and see for yourself why owning the 2019 Chevrolet Impala is a great choice.

2020 Silverado HD Is Wildly Impressive

2020 Silverado HD Is Wildly Impressive

Chevrolet is looking to wow customers with their new 2020 Silverado HD pickup the new Chevy HD is impressively strong with a maximum towing capacity of 35,500 pounds. That number reflects a vast 52 percent increase from the previous-generation Silverado HD and is 400 pounds more than the largest Ram HD pickup available today (the Cummins diesel version). Owners will have the choice of five trim options (Work Truck, Custom, LT, LTZ and High Country with a remarkable 22 cab, bed chassis and driveline configurations.

They Can Build It To Be Stronger, Faster and Better

Chevrolet has invested heavily in making its new HD massive. Expected to be taller, and broader, with a lengthened wheelbase of 5.2 inches for Crew Cab models. In fact, the overall length of the Crew Cab with a standard bed is nearly a foot longer than the previous truck, and it’s almost 2 inches taller. For those interested, there’s plenty inside that has been upgraded to make the Chevrolet HD stand above the competition. Chevy has plenty to say about their products, including the newest 2020 Silverado HD line being built in Flint, Michigan.

“We set out to make the best HD trucks on the market, bar none. We increased towing capabilities across the line, not just for dually buyers. We added class-leading towing technologies, such as 15 available camera views1, to make trailering more convenient, whether pulling a large cargo trailer or a fifth-wheel camper. And we made a host of changes to make tasks easier,” said Jaclyn McQuaid, chief engineer, Silverado HD.

What Is Expected Inside and Out?

What is expected inside? Chevrolet has mentioned every component from the transmission to the wheels are new and upgraded. What has been enhanced? Owners will notice the suspension has improved, made to handle the extra load. The rear axle is enhanced with an 11.5-inch ring gear for 2500HD models and a 12-inch ring gear for 3500HD diesel trucks. There are new larger-diameter prop shafts and the cooling system is upgraded to mitigate heat. A new Allison 10-speed automatic transmission to swap cogs has been added.

Managing that maximum tow rating demands a precise rig choice; a regular cab 2020 Silverado HD with two-wheel drive and dual rear wheels at the back. The required engine for that monumental task is the unmatched 6.6-Liter Duramax turbodiesel V8 powertrain. This massive engine is producing the same 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque with direct injection. That’s more power than you get from rival brands like Ram, though Ford hasn’t released figures for its refreshed upcoming Super Duty.

Drivers can link up their trailer easier than ever before thanks to 15 cameras as part of the in-vehicle trailering system. Electronic trailering apps are being developed to allow for considerable functionality to those towing large RV trailers. Helpful features like auto park brake assist, grade hold help, trailer sway control, and integrated trailer brake control provides hands-on towing assistance. As for passengers, they will enjoy a bit more legroom thanks to a modest three-inch overall increase in interior space.

Silverado Options For All

While the pricing for 2020 Chevrolet Silverado HD is not yet released, we can expect to see this large pickup in the Summer of 2019 and we can’t wait. Can’t wait to drive a new Silverado?

Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Sold Out for 2019

The Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 only produces 2,000 units per year and it already reached its quota for this year. Bison, the ZR2 model that’s sold out, is an upgrade to an already serious off-road pickup. So does that mean that it’s nowhere to be found? Not exactly.

Thedrive.com reached out to Chevrolet in regards to the truck being sold out or not and Monte Doran, Chevrolet spokesperson, told them “the Bison is incredibly popular, and demand from both dealers and customers is exceeding supply.” That’s good for Chevrolet. Dealers have asked for far more Bison’s than they can produce.    

As it stands, the Bison currently makes up about 10 percent of total Colorado sales, according to Chevrolet truck marketing director Sandor Piszar. According to official sales data, the Chevrolet Colorado tallied 134,842 US sales in 2018. Beyond the formidable ZR2 is the extreme Colorado ZR2 Bison, which tops the Colorado truck lineup in off-road capability, and price.   

SO WHAT’S NEW?

Chevrolet worked with aftermarket truck outfitter AEV (American Expedition Vehicles) to take the already capable ZR2 one step further, leading to Bison. The truck outfitter also designed new front and rear steel bumpers to protect the truck from trail obstructions. The front bumper has factory accommodations for a winch and unlike the standard ZR2 bumper, the Bison’s steel bumper offers a place for a pair of standard factory fog lights.

The rear bumper features chassis mounted tubular corner pieces that wrap around the rear quarter panels to provide some extra protection. It also features two integrated recovery points for when things don’t go as planned. Lastly, a new grille with flow-through “Chevrolet” lettering replaces the traditional bowtie.   

Keeping the ZR2 Bison on the road is a set of 31-inch Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac off-road tires mounted to Bison-specific 17 x 8-inch aluminum wheels. Which adds wider fender flares than the standard ZR2 to go with the new rubber and also has a 3.5-inch wider rear track. On pavement, the truck still rides smoothly in spite of its toughened, giant tires, thanks to the Multimatic DSSV dampers.

Behind the wheel, the changes don’t translate to a different experience from the regular ZR2. Those knobby rubbers still send a decent amount of road noise into the cabin and cause the truck to move a bit. The 3.6-liter naturally aspirated V-6 doesn’t have trouble holding the truck at speeds high enough. Even with those traction tires and height and the 308 horsepower and 275 ft-lb of torque.

Inside, customers will find exclusive headrest stitching and floor liners that feature the AEV logo. Outside, a snorkel, which helps the Bison ford through water, provides proper air filtration while driving on dusty trails. Other things that can be included are front and rear locking electronic differentials, Multimatic DSSV dampers, off-road rocker protection, an Autotrac transfer case, a rear axle with a 3.42 ratio and the Bison can be equipped with the optional 2.8-liter Duramax turbo diesel.

If customers are willing to do the research they will still be able to find one in dealer inventories. They will have to call daily and see if dealers have a Bison on order that has not been sold to another customer. But from a Chevrolet perspective, the vehicle is sold out.

But you’ll have to act fast since the truck is in high demand, especially the 2019 model. Chevrolet told thedrive.com that the trucks only sit on a lot for 10 days on average before being sold. That is no time at all.

GM Powers Up 2020 Silverado HD Pickup Line

The Chevrolet design team is listening to what their customers want. The team took into consideration and put into action, the earlier feedback they received and their customers made one message loud and clear. Make a heavy duty truck that looks very different from a light-duty; make its appearance convey power and capability, as a heavy-duty truck should be.  

The 2020 Silverado HD sketches, unveiled at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show (Feb. 9-18, 2019), showed a few new specs of what the 2020 Silverado model will have. For one, it will be available in five trim levels- Work Truck, Custom, LT, LTZ, and High Country – across 22 cab, bed, chassis and driveline configurations. Like their GMC Sierra HD siblings, it will also have the choices of two new powertrains.

The choice of having two new powertrains will give a new direct-injected gas engine with a 6-speed automatic or the turbo-diesel engine that is mated to a new 10-speed Allison automatic transmission. The diesel engine is listed at 910 lb-ft of torque, which is the same as the current L5P 6.6-liter Duramax V8 turbo-diesel. Other unique features include the new towing mirrors, LED roof-mounted heavy duty marker lights, and a handy bed-step on the side.

INCHES & DIMENSIONS:

The standard engine is a new 6.6- liter gasoline V-8 with direct injection making 401 hp and 464 pound-feet of torque mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. According to autonews.com, “that is an 11 percent increase in horsepower and a 22 percent increase in peak torque, respectively, resulting in 18 percent more towing capability –17,400 pounds — according to GM. It replaces a 6.0-liter gasoline V-8 that delivered 360 hp and 380 pound-feet of torque”.   

However, something to consider is that the all-new 6.6- liter gasoline V8 engine, in the 2020 Chevy Silverado HD, will not utilize active or dynamic cylinder deactivation, according to gmauthority.com. The report also states that the new direct-injected heavy duty V8 engine will not offer an automatic engine start/stop either. But not to worry.    

There’s also another optional engine costumers can choose. The 6.6-liter diesel V-8 rated at 445 hp and 910 pound-feet of torque coupled with a 10-speed automatic transmission co-developed with Allison. The 2020 Silverado HD, according to GM, is 10.4 inches longer than the outgoing truck, 1.4 inches wider and 1.6 inches taller.

WHERE WILL THE ENGINES BE BUILT?:

The Duramax diesel engine will be built at its jointly operated DMAX facility in Moraine, Ohio. The 10-speed transmission will be produced at GM’s Toledo Transmission plant in Ohio. The 6.6-liter gas engine and six-speed transmission will be produced at the automaker’s Tonawanda Engine plant in Buffalo, N.Y.  

TAKE A CLOSER LOOK:

From what has been shown of the teaser image, the new 2020 Silverado HD has a Z71 badge on the grille. That badge defines that the Silverado will be a proper off-road truck on offer, straight from the factory. Z71 optioned trucks make for great adventures, as they are great at getting to remote trailheads.

The front grille of the Silverado HD looks to be highly influenced by the 2019 Silverado 1500 Work truck lineup. Goodbye, famous Chevy Bowtie. That is now replaced with “Chevrolet” stamped promptly across the grille.  

The lettering is also cut out, which allows more air to cool the engine. And you might find similarities with the 2019 Silverado HD. This setup is similar to the “Flowtie,” which was introduced on the 2018 Camaro ZL1 and carried over to the 2019 Silverado (4500/5500/6500) HD trucks.

Upcoming Silverado HD Will Pay For Electric Future

2019 Chevrolet Silverado Miami Lakes Automall

Chevrolet is thankful for the success of their all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado. General Motors had an ace up its sleeve with their line-up of diesel model Silverados, their highly popular and awarded pickup. The good news is there’s more technology being added. In June, the latest refresh from the all-new 2019 Silverado is set to debut. The Silverado HD heavy-duty truck was already lighter, yet stronger than the previous generation, but Chevy will have their newest heavy-duty, the all-new 2020 Silverado HD, by mid-2019.

Chevrolet has gone even further to gain more with less with even greater fuel-efficiency. Known as simply the 2020 Silverado HD, it is a new product for Chevy. With so much focus on the pickup, they have seen good returns on the Silverado and that success will help fund the research GM has for their self-driving projects. Let’s find out how much Chevrolet has invested.

Outlook For 2019

General Motors (GM) pickup trucks combined for a total of $65 billion in annual revenue with the heavy-duty versions of the Silverado and GMC Sierra making up nearly 20 percent of GM’s full-size truck sales. The revised Silverado HD will have competition in 2019 when Ford’s Super Duty is revamped. With GM’s reported sales hitting 210,000 heavy-duty pickups in 2018, the figure is expected to rise in 2019. As sedan sales have trended downwards, it’s less profitable than previous years for American automakers to make them. The latest trucks have more technology included and are more advanced with better engineering than ever before.

“These vehicles have among the highest margins in the business. You have no tomorrow if you don’t sell these trucks today,” said Jeff Schuster, senior vice president of forecasting at LMC Automotive.

Success and Continued Growth

GM reported sales of 210,000 heavy-duty pickups last year as the hope is the upcoming new models will sell even more. GM gains roughly 2 billion dollars through these sales alone before taxes, so the goal going forward is to continue to produce as many new pickups and other light trucks. Despite trucks being more expensive to build, they expect to grow by 1,000 workers to help launch the latest heavy-duty trucks in Flint, Michigan.  

General Motors is thrilled that these pickup trucks alone cover the $1 billion a year that the automaker places into its GM Cruise LLC self-driving unit. However, GM Cruise LLC  has yet to bring in revenue and has not yet begun its upcoming ride-hailing service, which set to debut in 2019. GM has an investment to solve the difficult problem of arranging a computer to operate a car. This problem is so costly that GM sold a piece of Cruise to SoftBank Vision Fund for $2.25 billion and another portion of the company to Honda Motor Co. for $2.75 billion. But they are looking to create this service to drive revenue even higher. This isn’t the first time they’ve put money into electric technology.

Electric Plans For Chevrolet

Back in 2016 the Chevy Bolt, GM’s latest electric car sold, lost nearly $9,000 per vehicle for the automaker. Chevy will take steps to ensure they don’t have that problem again. By 2022 the global auto industry as a whole will have spent $255 billion on electric vehicles and an additional $61 billion expanding self-drive technology, according to a report last year from consulting firm AlixPartners. There is no plan to sway GM from making electric vehicles, in fact they are doubling down on making new technology for us all to enjoy. Selling their pickups has netted GM over $9 billion annually and the future will showcase their latest innovations. For the latest Chevrolet pickups, head to Miami Lakes Automall today.

A Z07 package is also available for some versions, which adds additional aerodynamics and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires. The Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 is an ultra-high performance sport summer tire that offers excellent handling ability in summer track driving conditions.

Inside the Final Edition, the interior has also received a slew of upgrades such as a carbon fiber trim package and black Nappa leather.

Europe, Germany, and Switzerland are getting a new Final Edition of the coupe versions of the Grand Sport and Z06 Corvette C7 (nicknamed “the ultimate Corvette C7”) will be available in Germany and Switzerland.

“Thanks to its unique combination of racing technology, excellent driving dynamics, unmistakable style, and high everyday suitability the Corvette has grown to be the ultimate sports car icon,” said Chevrolet Europe’s director of performance cars, Felix Weller. “With this special edition, we aim to honor the current generation, which has once more contributed greatly to the history of the Corvette series.”   

While waiting patiently for the arrival of the mid-engine C8 (according to motortrend.com it’ll be here in 2020), the 2019 model year will have 28 iterations for the seventh-generation Corvette (C7), including coupe/convertible versions of Stingray, Grand Sport, Z06, and now the ZR1.

THE HEART OF THE CORVETTE:

One of the main components of any car is the engine. The final editions have impressive engines.

  • The 2019 Stingray has a 6.2L V8, 460 horsepower and can go 0-60 in 3.7 seconds.
  • The 2019 Z06 also has a 6.2L V8 and a 650 horsepower and it can pull up to 650 LB-FT of torque.
  • The 2019 Grand Sport has a 6.2L, 460 horsepower and it can go 0-60 in 3.6 seconds.
  • The 2019 ZR1 has a 6.2L, 755 horsepower and can go from 0-60 in 2.85 seconds

As you can see there are several variations in the vehicles but the engines are all the same.    

PRICING:

So what is the pricing for the Corvette C7 Final Editions?

The Stingray coupe starts at $55,900 (plus destination fee). The Grand Sport starts at $65,900 (plus destination fee). The Z06 starts at $80,900 (plus destination fee). The ZR1 starts at a whopping $123,000 (plus destination fee).

According to carbuzz.com, “we’ll have to wait and see if the Chevrolet Corvette C7 Final Edition will be sold in the US”. Let’s cross our fingers that they are.

2019 Chevrolet Blazer Is Out to Change The Game

2019 Chevrolet Blazer Miami Lakes Automall

Photo credit: Chevrolet

How does the current crossover SUV segment look? It’s a whole lot flashier now that the Chevrolet Blazer has returned to form with its latest incarnation. The 2019 Chevrolet Blazer has debuted and its ready for drivers. Looking for something to drive and enjoy that isn’t a sluggish SUV or bulky crossover? Don’t stray away from the latest Chevrolet product that has set itself apart from the pack. We’ll go over all the details, but keep in mind how the makers of the Blazer view their sharp new product.

“For the midsize two-row crossover customer, the business case was that they weren’t looking for body on frame. Same thing with off-roading — that’s not what this Blazer was ever going to be. There are a few things about it that you could call Camaro-esque. But our intent all along was to offer dry road performance, like a sports sedan. Some competitors have more emphasis on utility; this one has more emphasis on the sport,” said Blazer engineer Larry Mihalko.

Details of the Flashy New Blazer

The standard powertrain for the 2019 Chevrolet Blazer is the hearty 2.5-Liter Ecotec inline-four powertrain with a nine-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel-drive in the base trim. The 3.6-Liter V6 Pentastar engine included in the Premier trim carries 305 horsepower and 269 lb-ft of torque and is the standard powertrain with the RS and Premier trim, and works as an available option for the L and Base.

The 2.5-Liter Ecotec inline-four engine provides drivers with 193 horsepower and 188 lb-ft of torque is standard for L and Base trim. The V6 engine also has front or all-wheel-drive options and all Blazer options carry high-performance cross-axis ball joints for greater lateral stiffness, according to Chevrolet. With a combined 29 mpg, the Chevrolet Blazer helps drivers by providing a reasonable fuel economy for owners.

Full of Features, Packed With Modern Technology

Additional features that make the Blazer worthwhile and modern is the hands-free power liftgate, wireless charging, and six USB ports. For owners that use their Blazer for towing, they can use the Hitch Guidance feature, which helps aid the aligning process for a driver to hitch a trailer with a view of the center line on the rear vision camera. The Hitch View provides a top-down view of the hitch so drivers can see just where the hitch ball rests. Drivers are going to love driving the Blazer today more than ever before. This is made easier thanks to the large 8-inch touchscreen. Available features include a rear-seat DVD player that is a part of an infotainment system that makes rides more fun for others.

This is a new product that differs from the previous Blazer that had a production run from 2001-2008. The all-new Blazer offers a 0-60 time of just 6.5 seconds with the 3.6-Liter V6 and starts at only $29,995 MSRP (plus destination fee). The Premier trim begins at $43,895 MSRP (plus destination fee.)

For those looking for a smaller SUV, the newest line-up offered by Chevrolet includes the Trax and Equinox. Drivers that want a little more space, but no sacrificing on behalf of the power, the Blazer is a perfect fit.

Experience The Difference of Chevrolet Today

We hope to accommodate everyone who wants a test-drive with the all-new 2019 Chevrolet Blazer. We carry the latest Chevrolet vehicles and take pride in offering a large quality pre-owned variety that will make all customers happy to test-drive.

Quality Servicing And Repairs Done Right

When a vehicle needs to be repaired, would an owner be better served to take matters into their own hands or take the vehicle to a trusted service center? YouTube has millions of videos with tens of thousands of videos added every day, but those videos don’t carry the same experience and training that is applied to our service members. We’re sure to be able to handle much more than any videos can provide and in a timely manner., In most cases, we’ll have any vehicle returned to the owner in less time than if the owner attempted the repairs on their own.

Vehicles are machines that have many moving parts and require maintenance on a regular basis. Oil changes, replacing brake pads and car batteries are common issues, but we are certified to handle even the most difficult of maintenance or repairs. Let’s go over the various maintenance work and when to expect to come to our service center.

What Services Are Available?

Oil changes, which involves lube and a filter change, are a regular servicing task. We suggest to come in for oil changes every 3,000 miles. If full synthetic motor oil is used, this will provide up to 10,000 miles of use before replacement oil is needed. At the same time, tires should be rotated to make sure they wear evenly.

Looking for new tires or to patch a current one? We can guarantee you leave with the proper solution for nearly any vehicle. We also adjust tires to the proper tire pressure with every visit.

Battery service and replacement is normal as well, every two or three years. Let us test the battery and replace any battery that is testing low voltage. Nothing is worse than being stranded with a dead battery. We’ll properly dispose of any old battery.

Brake servicing requires proper attention to detail and we’ll make sure brakes are properly tended to. We advise a visual inspection of brake rotors and brake pads every 5,000 miles. We’ll examine brake lines and hoses at 15,000 miles through our multi-point inspection. At 30,000 miles we will measure each brake pad and disc. We have the proper training to know what to look for and how to address any issues. Don’t neglect brakes. Doing so can end up costing more than brake maintenance and even be dangerous.

Less Common Maintenance Work We Can Handle

Have an older vehicle? Just got new tires? Front end alignment is extremely important to ensure a vehicle goes on the right path and keeps tires from going bald. If you notice any tire is uneven or the vehicle veers to the left or right instead of moving straight, bring it in because we can correct that problem with a proper alignment.

Transmission repair and replacement is a service we handle as well. Whether the transmission requires an overhaul or replacement, we have the tools and knowledge to get it down.

Coolant replacement or flushes are necessary and should take place every 60,000 miles and flushed again after 30,000 miles and beyond that mark over the course of a vehicle’s lifetime. We will correctly dispose of the radiator fluid with a coolant replacement and keep a vehicle from overheating with a coolant flush.
