Undercar Services: Maintenance & Repair, Centerville, OH

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 Centerville Service Center.

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 Centerville Service Center, we have anti-lock brake experts who will examine and repair your faulty ABS - keeping you safe.

Brake System Flush
Brake fluid is hygroscopic (it absorbs moisture). The absorbed moisture lowers the fluid's boiling point. It also corrodes the lines and cylinders. With the lowered boiling point, the brake fluid could boil during braking which makes you lose braking ability. Although this is an extreme scenario, it does happen in heavy braking. To reduce the effects of the absorbed moisture, auto manufacturers recommend that you have a brake flush done periodically. A brake system flush involves the replacement of used and contaminated fluid with fresh fluid. With Centerville Service Center's quick lube services, you will have a brake system flush performed by brake experts. Call 937-433-5122 or visit Centerville Service Center today.

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 Centerville Service Center 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 Centerville Service Center, there are experienced undercar service providers who can work on your chassis.

Differential Flush
The differential is a car part that compensates for the difference in travel distance between the inner wheels and outer wheels when the vehicle is turning. Due to the differential's position in most non-four-wheel-drive (FWD) vehicles (located at the rear and under the car), it does not get any of the star treatment the engine gets. The one thing that every car owner needs to know is that failure of the differential will mean failure of the car. To save the differential from failure, you need to have differential fluid changed every 30,000 to 50,000 miles. Changing the oil on the differential is as important as changing the car's engine oil. Although checking and changing differential oil is pretty easy, you need to visit an auto shop to get a comprehensive differential flush. For differential flush services, visit or call Centerville Service Center in Centerville, OH 45459 today.

Differentials
The differential transfers the engine power to the wheels. One important function of the differential is to pass on power to the wheels while allowing them to rotate at different speeds - thus the name differential. When turning, the outer wheels travel a larger distance than the inner wheels do (also the front wheels travel a longer distance than the rear wheels). This means that all four wheels travel at different speeds during a turn and this is where the differential comes in to help. To make sure your vehicle's differentials are working properly, have them checked regularly. Contact Centerville Service Center today for differentials examination and servicing.

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 Centerville Service Center, you can have the driveline serviced by experts.

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. Centerville Service Center has expert technicians to service your car's exhaust system.

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 Centerville Service Center today.

Struts
Much like a shock absorber (shocks), your car's struts provide a dampening effect as you travel over a road's surface. By absorbing the shock of the road, struts allow passengers to ride in a car without constant and uncomfortable motion. Struts work a bit differently than shocks in that they provide structural support for your car's suspension. This means that struts support your car's weight, unlike shocks which only regulate the speed at which the weight is transferred. Struts usually last around 50,000 or 60,000 miles. This is simply because the damping characteristics of the parts gradually deteriorate over time. Call Centerville Service Center at 937-433-5122 if you have questions about the struts on your car. Our expert technicians will diagnose any problems and help you make an informed decision about repairs.

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 Centerville Service Center today.

There is a reason they have 100% 5-star reviews. These guys are the best. Their prices are probably average, but the level of service and integrity is off the charts. They'll take the time to talk you through the issues without rushing through it. Highly recommend.

This place is on North Main Street in Centerville, not Dayton. Anyway - these guys are honest as the day is long (or short, this time of year!) and do great work. They're not the cheapest place in town, but they do only the work that's necessary and they do it right.

I've taken my cars to CSC for about five years now. They have consistently been honest, reliable and speedy all while maintaining a great level of quality.

reviewicon
They were ready for my appointment, took my car, completed the job, in record time. Very pleased with the quality of work.


reviewicon
This location is friendly, honest, and trustworthy. The prices seem a bit higher than others, but you most likely won't find someone who will keep you from spending unnecessary dollars.


reviewicon
I was very happy with the work done on our Jetta. They installed my own disc pads and did a great job. They just forgot to complete a tire rotation, but there was no charge at the time. I will definitely consider this location for future work on this car and others in our family


reviewicon
Very satisfied, excellent service from people I have put my trust in through the years.


reviewicon
Needed a quick fix on my automobile. They checked it out, did the repair and I was out the door in about an hour. Great Servic Center.


reviewicon
100% satisfied with the folks working at Centerville Service Center. Very skilled and professional mechanics. A bonus for any customer is that they are friendly as well. These guys will always go out of their way to be sure you are pleased with the work performed on your vehicle. The price is always fare and very competitive. A clean place to await vehicle's repair with coffee and very often free doughnuts.


reviewicon
I don't have any problems with the time, price or quality of the work. They did what they promise to do. Can't expect any more. Thanks


reviewicon
Centerville Service Center is where I bring all my vehicles. They are very efficient at locating the problem/issue and their prices are extremely fair. They even offer military discounts unlike several other places. I recommend to anyone that needs work done on their vehicle to bring it into them.


reviewicon
I brought my car in and had it checked for the check engine light coming on and some other noises it was making. They provided a quick diagnoses and the most money saving way of moving forward. I always appriciate their honesty and not just trying to offer the fix that will get them the most money out of me.


reviewicon
Car taken in as scheduled and problem isolated quickly. Took a day to get the part and so a loaner vehicle was provided. Finished up next day and seems as though the problem was solved. Good service and followup. The servicing of my car was quick and complete and it was in and out in less than one day, as I had hoped. We have been coming here for years with our cars and will continue to do so when the service is so good.


reviewicon
I wouldn't trust anyone else with general maintenance & repairs on my vehicle. Highly recommended


reviewicon
The service was good. It would have been good for the bill to reflect that the technician inspected the brakes while he was replacing the rotors and that they were O.K. I asked that that be added before my bill was printed and the clerk did that.


reviewicon
As long as I live in the area, Centerville Service Center has a customer in me! I will recommend this place to anyone. They were fast, friendly and honest. They even fixed a nail in my mom's tire on the spot when she was dropping me off to pick up my car. Also, many times I have gone to auto shops where I felt I was talked down to and charged unfairly, simply because I was a female. These guys are gentlemen. The problems were explained to me thoroughly and I walked away with a plan of action to deal with other, not as urgent issues. Cannot thank Ben and the whole team, enough. You guys rock!
