Superior Automotive Service: How To Safety Check A Car Suspension

Mount Roskill, Auckland based Superior Automotive Service would like to reach out to the wider public and share useful information regarding safety suspension checks. The information they shared can be found in an article that was posted on their website.

New Zealand is currently in the middle of winter, and with wet, slick roads more common it may affect braking distance, steering and safety. As such, it is important for drivers to make sure that their car’s suspension is working as intended. Fortunately, it is often not too difficult to determine whether a car’s suspension has problems or not. One of the most obvious signs that an individual can look out for is additional difficulty steering their car. If it is difficult to steer a car, especially at low speeds, then there is probably a problem with the car’s suspension. This increased difficulty in steering is due to the fact that steering and suspension are closely related and have to rely on each other to function properly. Another sign that car owners should look out for is tyre pressure. An underinflated tyre can also cause the entire car to ride strangely, including pulling to one side. Tyres that are underinflated also cause uneven tyre wear and decreased petrol mileage.

Superior Automotive Service  Suspension Repairs

Although it is easy to detect problems with a car’s suspension, it can be hard to diagnose the specific cause of those problems. There are too many possible causes, including bad or worn shocks, struts, springs, tie rods or ball joints. As such, when a driver detects an issue with their car’s suspension, it is wise for them to have their car checked out by mechanical professionals — such as those at Superior Automotive Service. The professional mechanics at Superior Automotive Service have the skills and experience needed to properly diagnose problems and offer applicable solutions.

Drivers are advised not to ignore any problems that their car’s suspension may have. The suspension is an extremely important part of a car as it supports the entire weight of the vehicle. It also has effects on the car’s ability to steer and stop. A problematic suspension will cause many issues with controlling the vehicle, which is why it should be fixed as soon as possible. If left ignored, people can get involved in accidents due to poor steering, suspension and tyres. Fortunately, Superior Automotive Service is ready to provide any suspension repair needs that their community may present them with.

Although it is important to repair any problems with a car’s suspension, it is still better to prevent these issues from occurring in the first place. Wear and tear to suspension systems cannot be avoided as these happen naturally whenever cars are used. Since wear and tear are inevitable, car owners need to have their vehicle’s suspension systems regularly inspected and maintained. Vehicle maintenance may cost hundreds of dollars but paying for replacements and dealing with accidents costs far more.

Superior Automotive Service is an AA approved repairer that can deal with any car repairs and maintenance needs. More information about their services can be found on their website.

Customers have shared high praise regarding the services offered at Superior Automotive Service. Sazli Zulkifli says in a 5-Star Google review, “A long overdue review (been in Jay Bee Mt. Roskill in Jan 2020), but had to do it since they managed to fix a car of mine, a Nissan, which has been giving me issues for years, all in one afternoon! There was a guy there who spotted the loose wiring, and voila, the car runs like new again. Come to think of it, I had almost let the car go for cheap considering the terrible idling issue. Absolute legend! Someone please give that guy a raise, he deserves it!”

Verity Oliver says in another 5-Star Google review, “We were referred here by our mechanic for an issue he couldn't resolve. The service from Joe and the team was excellent. The problem was recognised immediately, I was well informed of the components likely required before work began, and they fixed it up very quickly at a fair price. Highly recommended.”
