2. Brake Checks
Brake repair is an important safety measure. Without properly working brakes, normal driving situations would take a turn for the worst. There are several signs that will help you figure out when the brakes of your dad’s car need a check-up. If he complains that he hears a high-pitched squealing while braking or if his car’s steering wheel vibrates when he slows down or stops, it’s time for a brake check. Offer to bring his car to the nearest Quality Tune-Up shop for a brake check maintenance.
A regularly scheduled tune-up can drastically improve the efficiency of your dad’s vehicle’s engine. Getting Dad a car tune-up for Father’s Day will not only save him the money to buy one from himself, but it will also save him potential damage in the future.
Quality tune-ups include new spark plugs and points if equipped. We also check the condenser, rotor and distributor cap if equipped. All tune-ups include labor to install parts and any necessary adjustments.
4. Air conditioning
Summer in Northern California brings hot temperatures, and this is the time that most people turn on their vehicles Air Conditioning for the first time. With Father’s Day approaching, recharging your dad’s system will keep his air conditioner blowing cold air for those hot summer days. A thorough check of the system can reveal potential problems that are easily repaired if found early but expensive to fix if the component fails.
