The Importance of Car Alignments

Have you ever wondered what makes a car alignment important? We asked Bryan Weber of Weber Automotive this question to get down to the answers. Here are some of the important reasons to get a car alignment…

  1. Pre-mature wear on your tires. 
  2. Extending the life of your tires.
  3. Tires can range from $400.00 - $1000.00 to replace so a simple alignment can save you costs. 
  4. Fuel consumption is another reason to get an alignment. Yes, you can actually save fuel with a properly aligned set of tires. 

Technical Reasoning Behind a Tire Alignment

If your anything like us, your usually skeptical when it comes to unnecessary expenditures and a tire alignment sounds like it’s just one of those unnecessary maintenance costs you can live without. If you think of yourself walking with your feet pointed inwards rather than normal, not only do you slow down on how you walk but you’re would also wear out your shoes much faster. 

That slowing down in your walk is similar to stressing out our engine a bit more because It’s essentially dragging the wheels more than rolling them. And that misalignment is also running your rubber down on your wheels much faster. 

Consider the Safety Factor of a Bad Alignment

So, we’ve covered the expenditures of a bad alignment. We’ve also covered the additional hidden costs associated with a bad alignment, consider the safety factors of a bad alignment. 

If your wheels are wearing down and you’re the type that doesn’t consider taking your car into the shop, you could find yourself with a flat tire. There are a number of safety hazards that come with the flat tire, not to mention your loss of time and the potential safety hazards that come with a misaligned set of wheels.

What to Do When Your Check Engine Light Comes On

By Weber Automotive
April 18, 2019 Category: Check Engine Light

Many car owners believe that they can take their cars into any shop when their check engine light comes on and the shop will scan the vehicle and immediately identify the issue. However, the scan does not tell you what the problem is; it only tells you that there is an issue. What Happens When the Check Engine Light Comes On? When the check engine light comes on it means the computer that operates the power train sees something out of its programmed parameters, and that generally indicates theres a problem with the vehicle. At Weber Automotive, we offer a free code scan in order to provide our customers with more value. If your check engine light comes on, we will run our code scanner which gives us direction to tell you where the problem is. From there we can tell you what tests have to be done beyond that scan to determine exactly whats causing that light to come on. The code is not a diagnosis as it does not tell you what needs to be done to solve that problem. Car Doctors It

The Importance of Regular Inspection on Your Vehicle

By Weber Automotive
April 11, 2019 Category: Inspections

A full inspection is an important part of preventative maintenance for your vehicle, and you cant get it done everywhere! If you take your car to one of those quick lube businesses, they will inspect your vehicle, but youre only going to get basic checks. Our Policy Unlike many other shops, we have a policy that every time a vehicle comes in a shop for an oil change or whatever it may be that we do a full inspection including a digital inspection. We record whats wrong with any part. We check every light bulb, exterior, and interior, on the vehicle. We look under the hood as seen in the picture below. We check your belts, hoses, fluids, air filter, for oil leaks, and much more. Why We Always Do Inspections The reasons we always do inspections is to serve our customers better. Its better to know about any malfunctions or leaks ahead of time rather than when it causes a major problem. This approach saves you money as repairs, when caught early, cost much less than a full-on replacement.
