Hubs, Seals, Studs, & Nuts
A wheel hub motor, also referred to as a wheel motor, is an electric motor incorporated into the wheel hub and drives it directly. You can have a safer and smoother ride today by replacing your warped and worn out wheel hubs. Let Cruz Auto Repair replace your worn out hubs today.

Properly working seals provide oil and grease sealing - offering enhanced performance in a wide range of temperatures and environments. Worn out or warped seals allow external contaminants to enter the bearing unit or let lubricant escape from the unit. This ultimately leads to premature failure of the bearing unit. To keep out contamination and retain lubricant in the bearings, have the seals replaced with new ones. To have the seals replaced by experts, contact or visit Cruz Auto Repair today.

Studs are the threaded fasteners that hold on the wheels of your truck. The wheel studs are permanently mounted on the wheel hub through the brake disk or brake drum. To secure the wheel, nuts (lug nuts) are fastened over the stud. Stripped wheel studs can be quite dangerous. Damaged wheel studs should be replaced with new ones immediately. To have your truck's wheel studs replaced with high quality ones, call 510-215-1841 or visit Cruz Auto Repair today.

A wheel nut or lug nut is a fastener for securing a wheel on the hub. A set of lug nuts are used to secure a wheel to the threaded wheel studs (which are fixed to a wheel hub). Worn out nuts means one thing - the wheel is not fixed securely on the vehicle which puts the vehicle at the risk of rolling over. To have your truck's wheels securely fastened to the hub, contact or visit Cruz Auto Repair in Richmond, CA 94804 today.

Most Extended Warranties Accepted
An extended warranty (also known as a service contract) can provide peace of mind to most car buyers. The warranty (or service contract) kicks in after the usual manufacturer warranty has expired. An extended warranty covers major breakdowns and evens out the cost of repairs. Unfortunately, not all auto repair shops accept extended warranties. At Cruz Auto Repair in Richmond, CA 94804, we accept most extended warranties. We let you use the service contract to save on auto repair costs.

Pre-Purchase Inspections
Are you planning to buy a new car? Don't take chances. Be confident about the car you are buying. Have pre-purchase inspections performed on the vehicle. Pre-purchase inspections involve examining the car's condition to ensure it is worth buying. At Cruz Auto Repair, we have pre-purchase inspection experts - mechanics who will scrutinize any car, make, and model and allow you to make an informed decision. Pre-purchase inspections will definitely give you peace of mind when you buy your next used car.

Pre-Trip Inspection
The importance of a pre-trip inspection cannot be overstated, as it can be the decisive factor between a safe journey and one that ends in disaster. This inspection aims to identify potential defects and mechanical issues that might lead to accidents or breakdowns. Before embarking on your trip, it is essential to ensure that your vehicle undergoes a comprehensive safety inspection. Feel free to drop by or give us a call at 510-215-1841.

Wheel Bearings
Wheel bearings are located within the wheels and enable them to rotate freely while being connected to the brake system. Over time, these bearings can wear out, leading to a vibrating suspension and audible rubbing noises during driving. If they break down completely, the vehicle becomes extremely difficult to control and unsafe to drive. The replacement interval for wheel bearings can vary significantly, but it is essential to periodically check them for any leaks or signs of wear.

Cruz and his team have been repairing my car for the last few years. They have done an amazing job. I just recently got my control arm replace because it kept making noise. My car feels great after their repair.

I just met Augustin, and he really took good care of me. Replaced the damaged parts that were causing a vibration in my Dodge Ram. He took it for a test drive and made some recommendations for service. Great service, honest, friendly, and very reasonably priced. Thank you! I highly recommend this shop.
