Here’s More on Our Most Popular Auto Repair Services

  • Brake Service

    Brake Service

    Your brakes are your vehicle’s biggest safety feature, so they need to be working perfectly to best protect you and your passengers when you need to stop suddenly. Our mechanics are equipped to handle all types of brake repair and maintenance items, including brake pad and shoe replacement, brake caliper replacement, brake hose replacement, and brake fluid flushes. Come to us for brake service, and we’ll have your car’s braking system working like new.

  • Clutch Repair & Replacement

    Clutch Repair & Replacement

    Clutches naturally degrade over time as miles accumulate. The clutch disc can wear down, especially with stop-and-go city driving that requires significant shifting. Aggressive driving can also accelerate clutch wear, but even the most careful driver will have to service their vehicle’s clutch eventually. Our mechanics have experience working on all types of transmission and shifting systems and handle a full clutch replacement should you need one.

  • Scheduled Maintenance

    Scheduled Maintenance

    Maintenance of your vehicle, including oil changes, tire rotation, and fluid top-offs, is necessary to retain its value, safety, and dependability. Diligently following your vehicle manufacturer’s recommended maintenance schedule also helps you avoid serious breakdowns and minimizes the likelihood of needing a high cost auto repair. At Cruz Auto Repair, we emphasize scheduled maintenance as the smart and convenient way to keep your car running well.

  • Suspension Repair

    Suspension Repair

    The suspension system is responsible for maintaining comfort and control while you drive. Suspension system components, including shocks, struts, and coil springs, help to lessen the impact of road force and provide the “handling” that makes you feel in charge of your car. Excessive bouncing or swaying during bumps and intermittent control while driving are reasons for a suspension system checkup. Uneven tire wear is also a potential sign of a suspension problem.

  • Timing Belt Replacement

    Timing Belt Replacement

    Failing to get your timing belt replaced when it needs to be can result in complete engine failure or, at a minimum, severe engine damage. Signs of a worn or stretched timing belt include rough idling or difficulty starting the engine. Cracks on the belt are an indication that it may soon break. Replacement of your timing belt will help keep your engine performing as it should and ensure you avoid expensive future repairs. 

  • Tune-ups

    Tune-ups

    When your car is properly tuned, the engine, computer, fuel system, ignition system, and emission system are all working together in perfect harmony. When they are not, your vehicle needs a tune-up to recover lost performance and efficiency. As part of a tune-up at Cruz Auto Repair, we’ll check (and replace if necessary) your sparkplugs, ignition coils, distributor cap, and more. When we’re done, you’ll enjoy a better ride, and likely save money at the gas pump.
