TUNING & BRAKES
The Brake system provides the ability to stop a vehicle efficiently and safely and therefore is a vital component of driving safely. A well maintained Brake system protects the vehicle, driver, passengers and others sharing the road. Periodic inspection of friction material, vital system components and hydraulics helps to ensure efficient system performance and cost effective repairs.
Vehicle manufacturers recommend brake inspection at regular intervals, usually every 12,000 miles, to ensure vehicle safety and cost effective repairs.
Whether you drive a 2015 car or an older run around regular maintenance is a must. Many of us use our cars daily but can be guilty of putting the car service on the long finger. However having it serviced could be the difference between a minor repair job and a serious and expensive fault down the road.
It’s recommended that you have a professional service every 5,000 kilometers or every 3,000 miles, which may consist of a simple oil change or could involve a full service check of the vehicle including safety checks.
SUSPENSION & WHEEL ALIGNMENT
Auto manufacturers spend a lot of time and money making sure that their vehicles ride smooth and handles exceptionally well on the road, And then what do we do? We drive over potholes, speed bumps and rough roads – all of which will play a big part in throwing your car’s wheel alignment all out of whack. What makes Empire Auto Repair different from other alignment shops in CA? First, our shop features a state of the art Hunter flush mounted left matched to Hunter's DSP600 High Definition Digital Imaging 4 Wheel Alignment System.
We align your vehicle using Hunter’s laser measuring system and adjustments can be made to your cars geometry (camber, caster and toe) with incredible accuracy. When your vehicle is out of alignment, there are several reasons why you can’t afford to decline an wheel alignment. Poor alignment decreases gas mileage, tire life and will increases the risk of damage to other components, including steering components.

Be System Smart
System failures can lead to expensive engine repairs. The best way to prevent this is to remember the Car Care Council’s recommendation. Start inspecting the serpentine, cooling and timing systems at 60K miles, and replace worn components by 90K miles or as advised by the manufacturer.
