WARNING - Light is on, what do you do?

A light on the dash that doesn't say - washer fluid is low immediately panics you right?  It can happen when you don't keep up with standard maintenance and with older vehicles you see it due to the age of the vehicle, however here at City Auto Repair in Gainesville we like to keep you driving happy and listening to your favorite songs or talking to friends and family worry-free!  Here are some quick tips and hard lines in the sand that you do not need to ignore.

FIRST TIP:  Do not ignore a warning light.  However, first line of defense is to stop the vehicle as soon as it is safe and then turn the engine off - wait a few minutes then turn it back on.  If the light is still there - get your manual out to see what the light means (or Google it).

City Auto Repair is the BEST!

City Auto Repair is the BEST!!! So happy with the work I receive on my car but most importantly the HONESTY they provide. I went in for a simple oil change and alignment both the owner Rachael and her awesome manager Dan were like why do you need an alignment? Are you sure? My car is brand new that is why they were shocked I needed an alignment. I said yes, something isn't right and I hear a sound like a thump when I turn my steering wheel...so long story short they not only did my oil change, align my car but also tightened my tire rod bolt that had come loose!!! They said that is quite dangerous. No more sound and the alignment was indeed needed because of that. They are AWESOME! And they didn't even charge me for going the extra mile. I highly recommend Rachael & her team to everyone in town! Thank you guys so much. - Maria W.
