Having your car inspected for suspension and tires damage due to winter pot holes

There are many signs that indicate spring is almost here -- the days are longer, the flowers are blooming, the sun is shining, and of course, the road is covered in potholes! It only takes one pothole to damage your vehicle. Pot holes can really take a toll on your vehicle’s: 

  1. Suspension: When your vehicle drives over a pothole, your suspension system will absorb the initial shock. Each time your suspension system hits a pothole, it slowly begins to deteriorate. Over time, you might begin to notice that your vehicle isn’t absorbing potholes like it used, and you might be in for a bumpy ride! 
  2. Alignment: When there is something wrong with your vehicle’s alignment, you will notice vibrations, poor steering, or premature and irregular tire wear. 
  3. Tires: When you hit a pothole, you immediately think of your tires. Hitting a pothole can lead to uneven wear, tire damage, and even potentially bending a rim. 

We know the road is scattered precariously with potholes, but we don’t want you to worry each time you can’t avoid a pothole. The severity of the situation depends on the speed at which you hit the pothole and the depth of the pothole. 

Now is the perfect time to have your vehicle’s suspension system and tires inspected for signs of wear and tear from all the potholes littered throughout Kansas City and beyond. Schedule your appointment today! Our shop hours are Monday through Friday, from 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM.
