For those of you who missed our previous blog about pre-purchase inspections ( you can read it here ) we want to let you know AGAIN!

Here is an example why it is always a good idea to have a neutral (well really more on your side) mechanic check out your used car before you buy it.

This is a 2014 Mini Cooper S. It was “pre-purchased certified” by the dealership our customer purchased it from. (no we are not going to say who) They say they do a multi-point inspection on every vehicle checking and replacing everything before you purchase it, but this vehicle was brought into us right after purchase and you know what the first thing we found was?

Yep, look at that air filter!

Kind of makes you wonder what else they didn’t “inspect or replace” doesn’t it…

Integrity Automotive is happy to offer a FREE pre-purchase inspection so you know what you are getting into with your new-to-you car. PLEASE take advantage of us and bring your perspective purchases over BEFORE you buy.

The Importance of Having a Quality Car Repair Shop Change Your Oil, Oil Starvation 

Integrity Automotive wants to talk about oil starvation. Oil starvation basically means when the oil in your cars engine doesn’t get to all the places inside your engine that needs it. This lack of lubrication causes similar problems to your car that lack of water causes to your body (dehydration).

This is a good example of why it is important to have a quality car repair / mechanic change your oil. Here at Integrity Automotive this is one of the many extras we check for when you schedule an oil change with us.

Integrity Automotive wants to talk about a common issue we have seen lately. Some or all the lights and gauges have been failing in GM trucks. To illustrate the problem we are using a 2004 Chevy Silverado. Usually a few gauges and lights stop working. In this Chevy the entire instrument panel has failed. The most obvious issue with an inoperable dash is you do not know how fast you are driving!

Integrity Automotive wants to talk about the importance of routine maintenance and checks. Unlike the quick in-and-out oil shops, this is part of what we do at your routine oil changes at Integrity Automotive. In addition to changing your oil, we go through and look at your car as a whole and inspect it front to back.

One of the things we check for is your E-Brake (parking brake or emergency brake). That little piece of technology is often forgotten about as we drive our cars. Drivers rarely use parking brakes since the invention of automatic transmissions, except when on a steep hill. But parking brakes are an important part of your car and need to be inspected just like your regular brakes you use every day.
