Vehicle Maintenance

Keeping Your Car Safe When You Drive

It may seem too simple to make a statement about the importance of your car or truck’s ability to maintain contact with the road, but the truth is that that importance simply cannot be overstated. The team at St. Paul Automotive can help you stay safe on the road. So, what are the ways in which a car that is being operated in normal and safe ways can lose suitable contact with the road? One of the most common ways is the result of tires with too little tread remaining or tread that has somehow been damaged or compromised. The tread of your vehicle’s tires grips the road, using friction to ensure that it goes where you intend it to go. If your car’s tires no longer have deep enough tread to grip the road, it is more likely that you can find yourself skidding on slick roads or hydroplaning when there is a sheath of water on the road. When your car hydroplanes, it is effectively airborne, which means that steering and stopping become difficult or even impossible. Continue reading

Brake Jobs

What comes to your mind when you think about a vehicle? It usually has something to do with movement. Our cars get us from one place to another, with distances ranging from just around the block to drives from one coast to the other and anywhere in between. Another very important function of a vehicle is the ability to stop when needed. A vehicle that cannot be stopped properly is extremely dangerous to passengers in that vehicle as well as others on the road. The components of a vehicle that allow it to move must be matched by the components of the vehicle that allow it to come safely to a stop. St. Paul Automotive has the expertise to repair faulty brakes, replace worn out components, and provide vehicle owners with the peace of mind that they will be able to bring their vehicles to a stop when they need to.
