Winter Recovery Service at Quality Automotive Servicing

This epic winter has subjected your vehicle to some dirty, rough roads. At Quality Automotive Servicing we know that mountain-driven vehicles in Truckee have incurred damage from road hazards such as excessive dirt, rocks, potholes, road chemicals and the daily blast of moisture under the body. Truckee's Tahoe Donner has reported over 64 days of snowfall, so it's no surprise that your front suspension, as well as many other systems on the vehicle, have been through a lot.    

Mountain Driven Vehicles Simply Need More Maintenance

Mountain-driven vehicles need more maintenance and a professional team. Daily driving during weather events, on dusty roads and at extreme temperatures, both cold and hot, put added wear and tear on vehicle components. A mountain-driven vehicle needs a full-service, not just a hurried oil change. The folks at Quality Automotive Servicing suggest a service every six months to stay on top of issues that might start as small problems but quickly become big expenses. 

What starts as a small problem can

quickly become a big expense.  

Damage Control. Here is what we have been seeing at the shop. 

  • Suspension damage including worn shocks & struts, loose ball joints, bent tie rods & control arms.
  • Alignment issues causing uneven tire wear & other problems.
  • Underbody skid plates cracked, broken or missing that can longer protect the underbody.
  • Fluid reservoirs and hoses cracked and leaking.
  • Windshield wipers and wash system damage.
  • Pitted, cracked and broken headlights and tail lights, some full of moisture. 
  • Cabin air filters full of dirt, pine needles and rodent remnants. 
  • Failed door electronics due to moisture in the door panel.
