I got a text saying Tien was on his way, so the five minutes he was late due to traffic and a part pick up didn't bother me at all. He did exactly the service I requested, plus an overview of my newly purchased used vehicle, and didn't try to sell me a bunch of extra services. I was given a quote of $171 when I made the appointment, and I was charged exactly $171 when the service was completed. Pep Boys gave me an estimate for the same service of c "$325, minimum" just last week! Tien did find an additional issue I need to take a look at, and gave me a reasonable explanation with pictures showing the area that needed attention. i'll be booking the service for that in a couple weeks. The ease of making an appointment and paying online, the convenience of them coming to me, the integrity of their quote being the actual price, and the thorough service provided will keep me coming back (and recommending to my friends) for all my maintenance and service needs!

Very satisfied. Robert diagnosed the problem correctly and fixed it on the spot. He was courteous and helpful, and explained clearly what he was going to do, and why. He also gave me an estimate for some necessary further work, and showed me why that also needs to be done eventually. He is obviously a competent mechanic and understands the electronics involved. I would be glad to work with him again.

All about Strut Assembly Replacement

The strut assembly, an essential part of your car's suspension system, is attached to the front wheels and is used to absorb road shock, providing a smooth ride. Most cars made after 1995 have shock absorbers in the rear and strut assemblies in the front suspension. Older cars may have shock absorbers at all four wheels. Faulty or damaged struts affect the ride comfort as well as the braking effectiveness. The strut assembly, located in the front or rear of the car, is basically a shock absorber with a spring coil for additional support. The front wheels have the extra weight of the engine and need extra support to absorb shock from the road. The shock absorber has a piston and a cylinder that contains a gas or liquid substance. The spring is attached to the piston. When you drive over a bump, the piston inside the cylinder moves up and down against the gas/fluid and the spring, absorbing the shock from the bump. The strut assembly takes a beating over time, especially on bumpy roads. It will eventually start leaking the gas/liquid, leaving you with an unstable or rugged ride. With worn out struts, it is possible that the tires could lose contact with the road and/or the tires will wear out prematurely.
