Undercar Services: Maintenance & Repair

Rely on Great Lakes Auto Repair in Pontiac, MI 48340 to provide quality care for your vehicle's undercarriage. Stop by our shop to see how we can help you or call 248-858-4139 for more information.

To keep your vehicle running at peak performance, we provide undercar services that include:

Alignment
Wheel alignment (or simply alignment) is standard car maintenance that involves adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the manufacturer's specifications. The main purpose is to let the suspension and the steering systems operate at their desired angles - this reduces tire wear. Alignment is a complicated process and not all mechanics get it right. To have experts handle your car's alignment, visit Great Lakes Auto Repair.

Anti-Lock Brakes
Anti-lock brakes prevent wheel lock-up when rapidly decelerating by automatically modulating the brake pressure during an emergency stop. With this system, the wheels are able to maintain traction with the road while braking. Failure of the anti-lock brakes could lead to an increase in the risks of multiple vehicle crashes and run-off road crashes. To avoid this, have your anti-lock brake system checked and repaired by experts. At Great Lakes Auto Repair, we have anti-lock brake experts who will examine and repair your faulty ABS - keeping you safe.

Brakes
A brake is a mechanical device for slowing or stopping a vehicle (usually by means of friction). In short, a brake inhibits your car's motion. It lets you stop the car whenever and wherever you choose. Brakes are one of the most important parts of a motor vehicle. Without them, you would not be able to stop the car. If your vehicle's brakes are having issues, consider having them worked on. Brake experts at Great Lakes Auto Repair can work on your car's brakes to ensure you have a safe drive.

Chassis
A chassis is the car's internal framework that supports the body and other parts like the wheels, engine, transmission, driveshaft, differential, and suspension. A weak or damaged chassis will translate to a weak car. To have a strong and properly working vehicle, have your car's chassis checked for defects. At Great Lakes Auto Repair, there are experienced undercar service providers who can work on your chassis.

Exhaust
In a motor vehicle, an exhaust system is a piping used to guide exhaust fumes away from the engine - usually to the rear of the vehicle. A properly functioning exhaust system not only sounds better, it is better - for you, your car, and the environment. Great Lakes Auto Repair has expert technicians to service your car's exhaust system.

Driveline
A driveline is a part of your motor vehicle that connects the engine and the transmission to the wheel axles. The driveline consists of the parts of the powertrain less the engine and transmission. Failure of the driveline means that the car would not move since energy cannot be transmitted from the engine to the wheel axles. Therefore, make sure that your car's driveline is regularly inspected and serviced. And, at Great Lakes Auto Repair, you can have the driveline serviced by experts.

Tires
As tires get older, they lose traction and deteriorate from the inside out, increasing the likelihood of a tire bursting. This can cause a rapid loss of control of your vehicle. To have a better performing vehicle, you need to make sure the tires are in good condition. For all your tire needs, contact Great Lakes Auto Repair today.

Shocks
Shocks (or shock absorbers) are mechanical devices designed to smooth out rough roads. The devices do this by converting kinetic energy to another form of energy. Properly working shocks reduce the effect of traveling over rough ground, leading to improved ride quality and vehicle handling. When shocks develop problems, driving on poorly leveled roads becomes unpleasant, and your vehicle may sway when turning. To have your vehicle's shocks diagnosed and repaired, visit Great Lakes Auto Repair today.

-Mary K.

Had my car fixed and fixed correctly the first time, competitively priced with outstanding customer service by knowledgeable technicians. Was my first time going there, but now it will be the only place I take my car.


-Doyle H.

If you want an honest and reasonable place, it's here! They are amazing.


-Dina L.

This is a good shop with qualified mechanics and fair prices. As a customer since they first opened, and a former employee, I can guarantee you on any given day this place is far too busy to fix anything on your car that isn't necessary. Their mechanics are certified and very knowledgeable. They often take on jobs no one else wants or can handle. The entire staff is very friendly and willing to go the extra mile. Whether it be giving customers a ride to and from, shopping around for parts, dealing with tight deadlines, staying late, or anything in between, Great Lakes will do what it takes to make your experience as pleasant as possible. They are also very good at prioritizing what needs fixed now and what can wait when on a budget. All of their work is warrantied and they stand behind anything they do. When it comes to prices they are exceptionally competitive. If you find someone to do it cheaper than these guys it's probably not going to come with a receipt, and cash will be the only form of payment excepted. I highly recommend this shop for any of your repair needs.

-Tracie J.

I’ve been brining my 70’s classic and late model vehicles to Great Lakes Auto Repair for several years now. Whether it’s a minor brake repair or something more major and complex, it’s not just a job, rather they truly care about the quality of work and attention to detail. Quotes are accurate, follow-up and communication are very timely. I truly appreciate the time spent taking me through repairs and explaining, in great detail, why and how certain repairs were done. Without a doubt, they have Integrity and trust, at a fair cost.


-Erik W.

I had a great experience with Great Lakes Auto Repair. They are quick but thorough! They are upfront about prices and let you know what needs to be fixed in order of priority. Which I really appreciated. Very nice and professional whenever we spoke, and kept me updated on everything before they performed the work.


-Danielle

These are my go-to people. I will go way out of my way to get here (like 200 miles towed). They are completely honest about everything and have never overcharged anything. They are making a living not a killing. This place is absolutely the best I have ever experienced. They have gone WAY out of their way to ensure that I am taken care of. I can't tell you how comforting it is to have an honest mechanic shop that does great work. I cannot recommend this place enough.


-Thom C.
