Designed for endurance and durability, the Land Rover brand is synonymous with function and reliability. That’s why when you notice an issue with your Land Rover, you may become especially disappointed, and rightfully so. However, it’s important to keep in mind that no machine can function without ongoing maintenance and care. Even if you follow the recommended maintenance schedule perfectly, you might still encounter issues.

One issue that can be especially frightening to encounter in your Land Rover is ABS (anti-lock braking system) failure ... read more
Whether you’re sitting at a red light or attempting to pass a line of cars, your vehicle throttle response, or engine response to some, is the rate at which your car is able to increase its speed after the accelerator is engaged. If you press your foot down on the gas pedal and it seems like forever until your car accelerates, then you are experiencing poor throttle response. This can be due to any number of issues with your vehicle. The solutions to these issues range in cost, depending on the severity of the issue as well as the automotive shop’s pricing; therefore, finding an honest, trustworthy automotive specialist is imperative.

Helping your European vehicle navigate all sorts of tough terrain, an air ride system is one of the key reasons that manufacturers like BMW, Porsche and Mercedes are able to offer such unparalleled performance. These suspensions can do everything from keeping your tires in contact with any type of terrain and to actually being able to lower the vehicle to improve fuel efficiency and a vehicle’s handling. The air ride system works together with the drive train, hydraulic dampeners and electronic sway bars and at the center of these suspensions is an air compressor that provides the correct air volume and pressure needed by the corners. In these cars the compressor itself and the air ride control unit are intelligent components that communicate with the Body Control Module and the Stability Control Module on a seri ... read more
When it comes to your vehicle, your engine is one of the most critical things you need to maintain to avoid catastrophic damages occurring to your vehicle. Any time the check engine light turns on, drivers know that action must be taken quickly to avoid compounding any problems as engine repair work is usually the most extensive and expensive of repairs. However, one key component that is often overlooked during routine maintenance is the timing belt in your engine.

Specifically, the rubber timing belt eventually wears down over time and in worst case scenarios, will break while you’re driving your vehicle. Should your timing ... read more
