The Top 5 of Tempe Car Repairs

The Top 5 of Tempe Car Repairs.

Even with proper maintenance, your car will eventually require a repair or two. Understanding what the most common repairs are will help you to better identify them when you start experiencing trouble. Then you can get to a mechanic as soon as possible to head off any other problems from forming.

Of course, collisions can also cause serious damage that only a manufacturer certified auto body shop should handle.

Here are the top 5 car repairs that will land you at the mechanic’s or an auto body shop in Tempe:


Your brakes take a lot of wear and tear. Just think about how many times a day you come to a stop. Every time you do, you are wearing away the brakes just a bit.

If you take your car in when you first start noticing signs of a problem with your brakes, you may only have to replace the pads. But if you continue driving on your brakes when you hear grinding or squealing, you may have to pay to replace the rotors, drums or more, which can cost quite a lot of money.

Electrical System

The electrical system in your car controls everything from the lights to the starter. Small issues may be corrected with a new spark plug or bulb, but more serious issues may require the replacement of sophisticated (and expensive) parts or the re-programming of certain parts. As always, take your car to your mechanic as soon as you notice any problems to prevent the issue from worsening.

Air Conditioning

In Tempe, any problems with the air conditioning can feel like a disaster. You may just need to get more coolant for the system, or you may have electrical or other problems. The only way to know for sure — and to minimize your outages — is to get to a qualified mechanic as fast as possible.


The exhaust system does more than keep fumes away from your car. It also improves your fuel efficiency and influences the way your car performs. Unfortunately, exhaust repairs are almost always complicated and expensive. Yet letting these issues go untended can cause even more serious problems for your engine and your fuel system.

Body Work

Dents, broken glass, and other major issues cost even more. You need to visit a Tempe manufacturer certified auto body shop to make sure that the work is done right. You don’t want to spend all that money for a poorly done job. The right Tempe body shop will get your car back to top condition.
