Some Of The Automotive Maintenance, Repairs & Services We Offer
At K & M Auto Service, we perform Shock and Suspension Repair with honesty and integrity. Our mechanics are highly trained and skilled at what they do. We can handle a vast number of vehicle repairs, ranging from highly complex engine repairs to the mundane oil change or transmission flush. Unlike other Portland mechanics, we work closely with our customers and educate them so that they can understand what exactly is wrong with their vehicle and make an informed decision when it comes to having their vehicle examined and repaired.
We understand that when your vehicle needs repairs, you want a mechanic who you can trust and depend on. We are a family owned auto repair shop that strives to provide superior customer service to each individual customer who walks through our door. Our mechanics are experts at what they do, and have an in-depth knowledge of just about any vehicle in existence, including both foreign and domestic models. We specialize in repairing shocks and vehicle suspension systems. Shock absorbers and vehicle suspension systems are critical safety features on every vehicle. Without shocks or suspension, driving your car would be a bumpy, painful and uncomfortable ride. If you have worn down shocks or your suspension system is damaged, you will notice excessive bumping and swaying and a significant decrease in handling and braking ability when you drive.
Basically, when your vehicle’s suspension is damaged, your vehicle will function poorly and can endanger you and other drivers on the road. Shock absorbers, like most vehicle parts, tend to break down over time. If you do the vast majority of your driving on smooth city streets, your shocks will last much longer.
However, driving your car on bumpy roads or going on off-road excursions will reduce the lifespan of your entire suspension system. In general, it is recommended that you replace your shock absorbers about every 50,000 miles. K & M Auto Services, our skilled mechanics know the ins-and-outs of suspension systems, and are equipped to make any repairs that are necessary. When we are done, your car will ride much smoother and will handle much better.
With a K & M Auto Service oil change, or any other service, you’ll receive a Touch® Courtesy Check. We’ll look inside, outside, under the hood and underneath the car, then explain the findings and give you a written report.
While you’re there, let us perform a Touch® Courtesy Check, which includes a visual check of the following items:
- Engine air filter
- Brake fluid
- Power steering fluid
- Automatic transmission fluid
- We’ll also walk you through your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations for replacing these vital fluids and filters.
