The Christmas Truce.

Amazing things happen this time of year.  One of the most remarkable events occurred in 1914.  Europe was in the grips of what would become WW1 when suddenly, on Christmas Day, a cease fire occurred so that both sides could celebrate the holiday in their own way.  It was an historic day of peace on earth.

On that Christmas Day some 104 years ago the two sides actually emerged from their trenches and played a soccer (football) game.  That’s right, they put down their weapons and kicked around a soccer ball for a couple of hours!  (Germany won the game, by the way).  It is a moment in time that we should all reflect on when considering how lucky we are today.

These days the America and Germany are staunch allies and we at A.J.’s Import Garage are proud to service the reliable German-made vehicles that are being driven around the Topeka area.  What goes around, comes around and the consistence of German cars with the tender loving care we give at A.J.’s is a powerful combination.  Merry Christmas from all of us at A.J.’s Import Garage at 501 S.W. Harrison.

Come on, Come on, Turn Over.

Have you ever said that to your car when you try to start it on a cold Topeka morning?  I think most of us have.  It happens to just about everyone who does not have garage parking during these upcoming winter months.  Don’t we all dread the clicking noise that we hear when an engine won’t turn over on a December morning?

Here are some tips –

1.  Your battery may need replacing
2.  There is water in your fuel line
3.  You’ve got the wrong oil in your vehicle
4.  Something is wrong with the carburetor

Here is the best tip of all.  Have your car checked for winter by the mechanics at A.J.’s Import Garage.  A.J.’s has been the go-to area prevention mechanic for both foreign and domestic cars for many years.  As winter dawns don’t forget A.J.’s Import Garage located at 501 S.W. Harrison in Topeka KS.  Call for an appointment at (785) 233-1000.

The History of Audi in America.

The Audi emblem featuring its iconic four rings identifies one of Germany's oldest-established automobile manufacturers.  It symbolizes the amalgamation in 1932 of four previously independent motor-vehicle manufacturers: Audi, DKW, Horch and Wanderer.  These companies form the roots of what is today the amazing Audi.

The four rings symbolize the four manufactures.  At this point, the mid-sized cars were assigned to Audi.  Then, in 1964, Volkswagen bought control of Auto Union from Daimler.  The new model, called the Audi 72, was built until 1972 (genius!).  The Audi brand name was gaining global traction in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

Soon thereafter, A.J.’s Import Garage began servicing this remarkable vehicle.  Located at 501 S.W. Harrison A.J.’s soon became the go-to place for Topeka area Audi owners to have their cars serviced.  Whether it’s suspension, brakes, fuel injection, climate control, whatever, A.J.’s Import Garage is your Audi service center.  Call for an appointment at (785) 233-1000.

What is Thermotronic Climate Control?

Question: have you ever been freezing cold while the person next to you is about to break a sweat while riding in the car?  Mercedes-Benz has taken that situation into account and has gotten way ahead of the curve by equipping its vehicles with dual-zone climate control to allow drivers and passengers to have their own temperature controls.

So, what happens when you’re in a convertible and the temperature outside the vehicle is changing the temperature that you set on the climate controls?  That is where Thermotronic Automatic Climate Control by Mercedes-Benz comes into the picture.  It has proven to be an intelligent system that automatically adjusts the temperature to keep it consistent.

Knowing your Mercedes-Benz inside and out and top to bottom is the job of the top foreign car mechanics in our area.  They are found in Topeka KS at A.J.’s Import Garage located at 501 SW Harrison in Topeka.  Whenever you need maintenance on your Mercedes or other foreign vehicle call for an appointment at A.J.’s Import Garage at (785) 233-1000.
