Failing Brakes are like Fingernails on a Chalkboard.

It is a sound we never want to hear…the grinding and screeching of failing brakes on our vehicle.  How long does it take to stop when you are driving down the highways of the Raleigh area?  At sixty miles per hour it will take your car the length of a football field to come to a complete stop!

What are some of the signs of failing brakes?  The obvious one is the sudden appearance of the brake light on the dashboard.  At least we have this modern piece of technology to “dumb down” the process.  If you have driven for any length of time you instinctively know that it is taking just a bit longer to bring your car to a halt.

At the very first sign of failing brakes we know where to turn in our area.  It is the ultimate “shade tree mechanic”.  Jim Liacos of Jim’s Auto Services is the Raleigh area brake specialist.  He will diagnose and effect any and all necessary repairs to your vehicle’s brake system.  Don’t let the danger grow.  Make an appointment with Jim Liacos at his shop located at 3711 Tarheel Drive by calling (919) 824-4566.

Winterizing Your Car.

It is not too early to consider what your vehicle needs to get through the upcoming winter driving season.  We realize that winter in Raleigh is NOT winter in Boston, but it still can hit hard and fast.  You cannot take winter for granted here.  It is also NOT Miami and your vehicle will be subjected to changing weather conditions.

What are some of the emergency items that should be in your car?

1.  A working flashlight
2.  A blanket, a hat, and gloves
3.  A shovel small or large
4.  A brush with an ice scraper
5.  Non-perishable food

That would be a good start.  Now, what about your vehicle beneath the hood?  For that task, people of this area have counted on the decades of expertise from auto mechanic Jim Liacos.  At Jim’s Auto Service they are Raleigh’s premier automobile winterizing headquarters.  It will be here before you know it.  Visit the shop at 3711 Tarheel Drive by calling (919) 824-4566.
