    2012 Cruze 1.4T Turbo Replacement

    The codes in this vehicle indicate failure of the pcv relieve valve in the intake manifold, resulting in excessive crankcase pressure. This pressure causes the pcv bladder in the cam cover to rupture. The turbo code, O2 code, and cat code are symptomatic of the poor running conditions resulting...

A young person should not have to depend on their family's success in life. All that does is continue to keep the wealth...

    The Hypocrisy of Youth

    This is the product of youth coming of age. They are getting the beginnings of an education. They have a vague understanding of the law and what their rights may be, and they are trying to apply what they are learning in an inappropriate way. To attribute this to political leanings really is...

    What makes SuperTech Synthetic "cheap"

    Bottom line is that oil is cheap. Additives are what bring up the price, but even still, engine oil could still sell much cheaper than it does. AZ charges 5.49/qt for their house brand synthetic. They sell it to our shop for $2.75/qt. I can get a 12 quart case of full synthetic Dexos approved...

    AZ vs AAP vs Pep Boys vs Napa brakes

    Use an OEM pad kit. They come with the proper anti-rattle clips. Worth the extra $20 over the part store junk. As far as rotors go, you will be fine with any run of the mill aftermarket units from any one of those stores. We sell the OEM pads at 75.57/axle. I usually don't promote the OEM rotors...

    Am I right in thinking?

    The industry in general has decided that maintenance is viewed by the average consumer as an inconvenience. Returning the vehicle to a dealer for maintenance is not a desirable aspect of ownership. As a result, premium vehicle customers are inconvenienced as little as possible, hence, long...

    New pads old rotors, now squealing

    Winter takes a toll on the braking system on these vehicles. The brakes last forever in fair weather climates. Some aftermarket brakes are just going to be noisy. The only sure thing is an OEM pad set. It's worth the $75.

    2003 Hyundai Elantra GT Alignment Concerns???

    I would not worry too much about camber. As a Hyundai dealer I can tell you we have never installed or recommended installing a camber kit. The proper repair for non-adjustable camber that is way out of spec would be rear arm replacement.

    Cigarette butts...really?

    Personal freedom be [censored]! When a person's personal choice interferes with the health, financial well being, or the environment, then it is no longer defensible. The well being of the masses outweighs the liberties of the individual. As un-American a statement as one can make, but, oh well...

    When a company has a known issue from the time of it's initial production and they don't address it, then they get called out for it, they get skittish and try and be proactive about the other stuff they swept under the carpet years ago. They know eventually documentation of their knowledge of...

    Late 90's-early 2000's Nissan products.

    My 97 Altima with the KA24DE was outstanding. I would drive another 1st generation Altima in a heartbeat. Nissan quality has taken a dump since the 90's. We are a Hyundai dealer, but we have done several Versa engines. Junk.
