Don’t stay in Suspense about Suspension.

That is definitely a confusing statement.  Your vehicle’s suspension system is largely ignored until a problem rears its ugly head.  Tons of metal bear down on your car year after year.  At some point the shocks will simply wear out.  If your suspension system is on the fritz it will make your vehicle hard to control.

What are the warning signs of a faulty suspension system?

1.  Your ride is rougher than those horse soldiers of the late 19th century.
2.  When you turn your steering wheel, there is a pulling sensation.
3.  Put on the brakes.  Does your car steer in one direction or the other?
4.  The shocks have simply warn out.

What do you do next?  If you live in the Raleigh NC area you trust the ultimate “shade tree” mechanic.  He is Jim Liacos of Jim’s Auto Service in Raleigh.  He and his shop have been around for decades, but Jim and his staff continue to learn and grow as vehicles change.  Call for an appointment at (919) 824-4566 or drive to the shop at 3711 Tarheel Drive.

Meet the Man Behind the Business.

So many times, we do business with a company and we really don’t know who owns and manages it.  You might think that Jim’s Auto Service in Raleigh just has somebody’s name on the building, but the original Jim is long gone.  That is NOT the case in this particular instance!

Jim, in this case, is Jim Liacos.  We know him around here as “the ultimate shade tree mechanic”, because he cut his teeth repairing all types of vehicles more than a half-century ago.  His story is chronicled on his website and it is worth a read.  You will find that Jim has been involved in a number of different things over the decades.

We are lucky that he ultimately decided to open Jim’s Auto Service located at 3711 Tarheel Drive in Raleigh many years ago.  Jim and his crew have pursued excellence in automotive repair and customer service.  Whenever you have a need for preventative maintenance or repair of a major mechanical problem trust Jim.  Call for an appointment at (919) 824-4566.
