Over the years, I have favored some products over others when it comes to washing your car at your home. Depending on the look you are going for, you will most likely use different products to get different effects. These are the products our mechanics favor, because these seem to actually get the job done: [Read more…]
Spring is here and potholes are a plenty! Chicago’s dreaded pothole season started in February this year, but we are gearing up for round two. With the combination of rain from the past few days and the freeze we are expecting this weekend, we are sure to see more potholes form on the roads in the upcoming weeks.
Potholes occur when snow and ice melt during the Spring. As a result of the freeze-thaw cycle, water seeps beneath the pavement through cracks caused by the wear and tear of the road. When temperatures cool to freezing at night, the water becomes ice and expands below the pavement, forcing the pavement to rise. With the weight of traffic continuing to pound on this raised section – and the temperatures once again rise above freezing – a shallow divot forms under the surface and the pavement breaks, forming a pothole.

A car is generally the second largest investment we make in our lives after a home, yet on many occasions we are willing to trust the sellers opinion of the vehicle with our money! Would you buy a house without getting an inspection first? Not likely – most mortgage companies insist upon it. So why would you take the risk to purchase a vehicle without getting an independent opinion of it’s real condition?
For little more than an hour and a few hundred bucks you can get peace of mind by ensuring your car is a good investment and understand what service items you will need to spend money on in the near future.
Many consumers bring us vehicles that they’ve just bought, only to find there’s a whole host of problems they were unaware of. Don’t let this happen to you. This is why we strongly advise you take the time to have a used vehicle inspected with our PPI Service. See first hand from one of our customer’s experiences below:
With racing season in full swing we have put together a checklist for how to prepare you and your car for the racetrack. Track Days are exciting and addictive, but they can be a lot harder on your equipment than you may realize.
We have broken the following into sections on what the driver should have and what your car must have. Take a look:

When purchasing a used vehicle you are most likely presented with an extended warranty option. Before signing up consider all your options and make sure to read the fine print.
Being in the auto repair industry, we deal with extended warranty companies on a regular basis. While these companies are certainly not the most pleasant people to talk to, they do make for some interesting stories (and lessons learned!). Some companies are truly helpful and actually cover most, if not all, of the items on the customer’s repair bill. On the other hand, some of the other companies seem more like scam artists and refuse to pay anything on the repair bill.
Below are examples of situations we have come across:
