    Our Reviews

    I was very pleased with this experience. I called late on a Tuesday afternoon and they were able to put me in the next day. I brought the car to the shop and walked home (they did offer me a ride, but it was a great day outside).

    Throughout the day they let me know the status of the car and got me exact dollar amount quotes. I felt that they were very honest, and did not suggest anything that I did not already know was a concern. Often as a female, I get people trying to sell me stuff I don't need. They definately did not do that. I would definately use them again!

    Simpson Brothers Garage Advice: Don't Overlook These 10 Automotive Services

    Organization is the key to managing a busy life in CO. So setting up an annual calendar for vehicle care can keep Grand Junction residents on top of preventive maintenance. But you can't just write “oil change” every few months on the calendar. Modern vehicles have many systems that are vital to the safe operation of a vehicle, and they all need to be inspected. Grand Junction residents can't afford to overlook any of them.

    The following is a list of preventive maintenance services that are often overlooked by vehicle owners in the Grand Junction area. They are not presented in any particular order.

    1. Simpson Brothers Garage Power Steering Service. Moisture gradually builds up in your power steering fluid, which can lead to corrosion in your steering system. The fluid also gets dirty, which can gum up your steering system. The fluid needs to be replaced periodically.

    2. Simpson Brothers Garage Wheel Alignment. Wheels that are out of alignment will cause a vehicle to pull to one side. This is dangerous for Grand Junction residents and can lead to accidents. Also, it causes uneven and rapid tire wear, which means tires must be replaced more often.

    3. Simpson Brothers Garage Differential Service. They are part of the drive train system that transfers power from the engine to the wheels. Damage or wear in this system can make a vehicle undriveable.

    4. Simpson Brothers Garage Cabin Air Filter. Your vehicle may or may not be equipped with a cabin air filter. Its job is to remove dust and pollen from the air that enters the passenger compartment of the vehicle. If this filter clogs, it can stink. So check your owner's manual to find out if your vehicle has a cabin air filter. If so, come visit us at Simpson Brothers Garage and get it changed according to the recommended schedule.

    5. Simpson Brothers Garage Timing Belt Replacement. Most passenger cars and some vans and trucks have timing belts. Grand Junction residents can check their owner's manual to find out if their vehicle has one. If so, you can't drive without it. And if it breaks while on the road, you may be looking at thousands of dollars of repairs. So it is important to inspect it occasionally. If your vehicle has close to 60,000 miles/100,000 kilometers or more on it and you haven't had your timing belt replaced, then you need to find out the recommended replacement interval NOW.

    6. Simpson Brothers Garage Transmission Service. Transmission fluid gets dirty and has to be replaced. If not, you risk repairs.

    7. Simpson Brothers Garage Air Conditioning Service. The refrigerant in your air conditioner needs to be replaced periodically. This fluid doesn't just refrigerate air; it provides lubrication to the air conditioning system and conditions seals. Lack of fluid can damage components.

    8. Simpson Brothers Garage Brake Service. Even if your brakes are quiet and working well, the brake fluid still might need to be changed. Over time, moisture builds up in brake fluid. Water has a different viscosity than brake fluid, so the brakes can't compress properly when there's too much moisture in the fluid — and you shouldn't need to be told how it is to drive with brakes that are compromised. Moisture in your brake fluid can also corrode parts in your brake system, causing it to fail altogether.

    9. Simpson Brothers Garage Coolant System Service. Antifreeze is another fluid that needs to be changed regularly. If not, it actually becomes corrosive and begins to damage your cooling system. Eventually it can eat holes in your radiator.

    10. Simpson Brothers Garage Fuel System Cleaning. Over time, your fuel system just gets gummed up, which can interfere with the flow of fuel in a number of ways.

    Of course, your next question should be: How often do I need to get all of this done? Well, the answer varies depending on which service we're talking about, the make and model of your vehicle, the climate where you live in CO, your usual driving conditions and your driving habits.

    But don't lose heart. Your owner's manual will give you a recommended service schedule for most of the service items listed. And you can get quality auto advice from your friendly and knowledgeable Simpson Brothers Garage service advisors to help you meet the service intervals that suit your vehicle.
