Repairing the People’s Car.

Volkswagen has been dubbed “the people’s car” because of its meaning in English.  The Volkswagen group is the largest in the world.  This immortal vehicle goes back to pre-World War II Germany.  In those days only one German out of fifty owned a car.  It was clear that there was a market for an inexpensive compact car.

Well, this innovation caught on world-wide.  After the war, Volkswagen became the symbol of West Germany’s regeneration.  In 1961 VW expanded its product line with four new models.  Then in 1969 a larger type was introduced.  Today the Volkswagen line continues to expand its presence around the globe.

If you are a proud owner of one of these reliable vehicles you want to keep it in tip-top condition.  In Raleigh that location is 3711 Tarheel Drive.  That is the home of your Volkswagen repair experts…Jim’s Auto Service.  Just as we are all proud of our ‘Heels, take pride in your ride and have your VW maintained by Jim Liacos.  Call (919) 824-4566.

Congratulations to the UNC Tar Heels

"Congratulations to the University of North Carolina Tar Heels men's basketball team... now NCAA champions for the SIXTH time! Only two other schools hold more national titles than the University of North Carolina -- UCLA, who holds 11 titles and the University of Kentucky, who holds 8 titles."

Brake Check Time.

Next to the engine itself and the tires, what could be more important than your vehicle’s brakes?  Your safety depends on them.  Now that winter is pretty much over it is time to make sure that your brakes are ready for increased highway driving in warmer weather.  When was the last time that a professional took a look at them?

Often, it is painfully obvious that brake repair is a priority.  When you hear that awful “squealing noise” when you put your foot on the pedal do not hesitate another day.  A less obvious, but important sign would be a “mushy” feeling when you apply the brakes.  We may convince ourselves that this is not serious, but it probably demands your attention.

Brakes do not always adhere to a schedule.  Your owner’s manual may tell you the number of miles that are “projected” between a brake replacement.  Safety is at stake here.  Trust Raleigh’s vehicle brake replacement expert Jim Liacos.  Stop by his shop located at 3711 Tarheel Drive and have your brakes checked…or call for an appointment at (919) 824-4566.
