Cosmetically or mechanically, exterior or interior, Auto Truck Service will correct the issues all under one roof.

Arguably the most important topic on any vehicle, the brake system is what allows a vehicle to slow a large amount of mass down to a complete stop from rather high speeds. From drum brakes to disc brakes, they both will need service. Brake pads, calipers, rotors and many other items will wear as mileage and time increases. If there is anything that should be maintained properly, it is the braking system. The auto mechanics at Auto Truck Service will replace your brakes back to new, once you leave our shop you will be stopping as smooth as ever.

Living in Minnesota strains your suspension more than almost anywhere else. Potholes, washouts and inconvenient weather are the norm here. Ball joints, struts, shocks, tie rods, control arms and bushings are constantly taking punishment to keep you safe and in control. Once these items start to wear you may notice a loose steering wheel, excessive body bouncing or body roll, this is when it is time to get your vehicle inspected. Mechanics will check for a loose steering wheel, uneven and excessive tire wear, or steering components with excessive play. If you are experiencing any of these, chances are something is wearing out and is due for service.
