Is it wear & tear or a serious problem?

It’s not always easy to recognize when your vehicle is suffering from a simple problem that requires a little maintenance and TLC or there is real engine damage as symptoms can be overlooked and seen as “normal.” While not all sounds and smells may threaten the life of your car or truck engine, there are some obvious warning signs that require a vehicle inspection here at the shop right away.

Veterans Day Appreciation & Thanks

We have great pride in our military and veterans and honor them on Veterans Day each November 11th.  Did you know how and why it is on November 11th?  The reason dates back to 1918 and pays homage to the date and time the WW I cease fire went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month when a temporary cessation of hostilities, between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect. November 11, 1918, is generally regarded as the end of “the war to end all wars” eventhough the official end of the what we refer to as "The Great War" ended with the Treaty of Versailles signed on June 28, 1919, in the Palace of Versailles outside the town of Versailles, France.

Have you checked your brakes lately?

Have you checked your brakes lately?   I know you expect them to stop your car or truck when you step on that brake pedal, but when they don't work as expected it's too late and then you have an accident with damage to your vehicle but more importantly to the people inside your car and those on the road who may be in your path. 

Let's avoid that issue!  Test your brakes by lightly tapping them in different situations when the roads are both wet and dry.   If your vehicle is pulling to one side, your brake pedal pulses up and down or the steering wheel shakes when the brakes are applied, you are very much overdue for a brake check.  Getting in early will save you money as it is always easier to fix a problem before it becomes a huge issue and your brakes are gone requiring new brakes, pads, rotars, and drums. 

When in doubt stop by our shop and have one of our professional automotive repair technicians take a look.    Don't wait until it's too late to solve these problems and let us help you stay safe on the road!  After all, that is the reason we raise these garage doors every day and open these tool boxes.  We love what we do and want to ensure our drivers can stay on the roads longer with their vehicles safer and more cost efficiently.

Great Work

Great service, they explained to me what they were going to do to my vehicle before they went through and began doing the work and didn't try to sell me things I didn't need on my vehicle.  I like that they didn't try to upcharge me and they have earned my trust at Carney's Auto Service.  -Eric C

Great Experience

Had a great experience. They answered any question I had asked. They explained everything in detail. I would take any car there for possible problems. The staff at Carney's are understanding and friendly.  -John H

Saved Me Money

Just bought my second set of tires from Carney's Complete Auto Service. They are competitive with all the big boys in Brighton/Howell and in the second case even cheaper. Plus I can just drop the car off and leave it because they are only 5minutes away and I am spending my money right in town. I also like dealing with just one or two people unlike at big dealerships or big franchise places. -Bill W, a fan of Carney's
