Mechanical Repair Basics

Posted June 15, 2014 by Matthew

The mechanics of a car include radiators (heating), condensers (cooling), safety systems, brakes, suspension, exhaust, airbag systems, park assist, etc. These mechanical systems work together to make your vehicle operate correctly and safely. Mechanical repair services are closely related to structural repair, in that, if a vehicle’s structure isn’t straight, then the mechanics won’t be straight either.  When considering an auto body repair shop to trust your vehicle repairs to, it is important to choose a shop that has the expertise in not only mechanical, but structural as well, because these often require a cross-over in services. Don’t get stuck having to bring your car to multiple shops! Trust the experts at American Auto Body for all of your structural and mechanical repair needs.

Fall is a time when deer are on the move. Last year MN drivers crashed into 33,000 deer. Minnesota has one of the highest rates of deer/car accidents, and according to a study by State Farm Insurance, our state is the eighth most likely to have a deer/vehicle collision in the country.

If you are unlucky enough to collide with a deer this season, give us a call at 763-424-2522. We offer free loaner cars, and the experience and speediness to get your car repaired quickly.
