Ask any mechanic and they’ll tell you, brakes are absolutely vital to your safety, as well as your vehicle’s longevity.

That’s why it’s so imperative the person servicing your brakes knows what they’re doing. Rest assured, Frerichs, Buncombe County’s third generation garage, has the expertise to put you back in the driver’s seat.
Your car’s suspension (i.e., shocks or struts) isn’t always given much thought until something goes wrong. People sometimes take suspension to mean comfort or “a smooth ride.” However, failing suspension can actually hurt your ability to control your vehicle, especially when stopping or turning.

Oil acts as the lifeblood of your car. Never underestimate the importance of an oil change friends! Likewise, you can avoid costly and avoidable repairs by simply committing to regularly-scheduled maintenance every 30,000 miles (otherwise known as 30/60/90K). Typically, the first step in 30/60/90K maintenance is to inspect the vehicle’s major systems for signs of trouble.
Have you ever heard a mechanic talk about flushing car fluids (transmission fluid, motor oil, brake fluid etc.). In essence, it just means replacing the old fluid with new fluid. In some cases, it’s necessary to fully flush fluids, cleansing the entire system by running water or a specialized cleaner through the system to remove any grit or grime that may have built up over time. That way, you can steer clear of contaminants when it comes time to add fresh fluid.
The exhaust system serves to make sure toxic fumes stay out of the cabin of your car. What’s more, it works to ensure your engine runs as it should while giving you the best possible fuel efficiency and cutting emissions that pollute the air. As you can see, there are quite a few good reasons to maintain the health of your vehicle along with its exhaust system.
