You Made it Through the Winter.

Well, at least your car battery did.  Another tough Topeka area winter and it (as well as you) survived it…congratulations!  So, what shape is your car’s battery in now?  It seems painfully obvious that the best time to replace your battery is before you need to, but how do you know it’s time to replace the battery if it’s not dead?

Here are a few common warning signs –

1.  The engine cranks slowly when you start it.
2.  A misshapen battery case.
3.  Battery fluid is leaking.
4.  Of course, that good old check engine light.

There is little that is more triumphant than replacing your vehicle’s battery just before it conks out on you.  To make that happen, stop in at A.J.’s Import Garage located at 501 S.W. Harrison.  A.J.’s has been taking care of foreign and domestic car batteries around the capitol city for many years.  Call for an appointment if you wish at (785) 233-1000.

Japanese Imports and Their Challenges.

Japanese cars are renowned world-wide for their reliability, and many owners of Japanese automobiles report being able to drive 200,000 or even 300,000 miles before any major repairs are needed.  This is a testament to Japanese engineering and is evidence that Japanese vehicles are among the most reliable on the road.

On the flip side, here are some common problems in maintaining Japanese automobiles –

1.  Rust…not unique, but very real.
2.  Cracked or chipped paint.
3.  The suspension systems…keep a close eye on that.
4.  Brakes…replace them often as need be.

Here is a suggestion.  If you drive a Japanese import in the Topeka KS area you can always count on A.J.’s Import Garage…a premier location for fixing and maintaining your prized possession.  A.J.’s Import Garage specializes in German and Japanese vehicles at 501 S.W. Harrison in Topeka.  Make an appointment at (785) 233-1000.
