Rising costs

It is unfortunate that the rate of inflation feels insurmountable. It is going to level out eventually. We can’t stop the inflation train and we all must bear it. We try to keep our rates fair, but like most businesses we are in the business to make money. We also understand, as I am sure most of you do, price is a direct reflection of value. The cost is worthy if the value can be seen. Value doesn’t mean inexpensive. It means getting what you pay for, knowing that who you pay will stand behind what they offer, and that they will explain it clearly and concisely as needed for you to feel comfortable handing over your money. We appreciate all our customers and want them to feel comfortable with us. We are all in it together and understanding that there is a constant rise in costs for everyone we try to buffer best we can. We must charge with a reflection of our costs such as the expense of keeping quality employees that will follow our high standards is more expensive becau ... read more

Motor mounts

Motor mounts, transmission mounts, torque rods, and bushings are something that people often don’t notice them failing because they gradually get worse over time. What does this mean to you? A lot. I have had people say, “my boyfriend says its more of just a comfort thing”. Well, he is partially correct. But he is more wrong then correct. While it is a buffer to isolate vibrations and harshness from torque in the driveline, it also keeps your driveline in alignment with other components for optimum efficiency. When you have worn mounting components, it allows the driveline to move itself, rather than transfer the energy to the drive tires and then to the ground. All that shifting around is just wasted energy. That wasted energy on starting froward motion is a huge fuel loss. Along with it being inefficient it is unsafe. When they design vehicles, they assume the driveline will have certain characteristics for a collision that aren’t there when your driveline is ... read more

It's not all about the cars

It's not all about the cars

This is not a car blog. This is about the need to reset. How ever that may be done for you, this is how I do it. I am not a crowd person, I don’t enjoy concerts or restaurants, like I did when I was younger. I do not have a problem sharing my hobbies but am a follower of the rule of 4. That rule is that once you pass the number of 4 it is hard for there to be any true connection with the people you are with. Inevitably once you pass the rule of 4 you will have the person that cannot avoid talking about the news, or rabble rousing in general just to create conflict or take comfort away. I don’t want that in my private or public life. I find solace in being able to think clearly without media deciding what should be going on in my head. I don’t listen to the radio or watch television, and I certainly don’t want to listen to someone regurgitate incorrect information that they have no place talking about. First and foremost, my family is a huge part of my reset. Be ... read more
