Uzma A.Porter Ranch, CA  6 friends  27 reviews 3/22/2017 By far the greatest auto body shop known to man! I called in from a recommendation from a friend, and was not disappointed at all. I got my side mirror fixed and an oil change in one day. I was very worried they wouldn't find the mirror parts, but thankfully they did. They even gave me a ride back to my office after I dropped off my car.  I dealt mostly with David S., who was such a great gentleman! When I first talked to him, I knew right away that he would do everything possible to help get my mirror fixed. And he did! I like that they respected me rather than judged me. Most mechanics up their prices just bec ... read more

Potholes, Politics and get Paid

Potholes, Politics and get Paid

There’s no more an important time to talk about potholes in LA. The cost, the danger, the unsightliness of them. You know, the ones Mayor Garcetti promised to fix in his first Mayoral run in 2013. Oh, and by the way, he’s running again today. Yes there is an election in L.A. today March 7, 2017. Also, the much needed rain amped up the pothole problem by making existing ones worse and new ones ample. The Laurel Canyon Sinkhole may have started as pothole. The danger to drivers is obvious. Blown tires, bent wheels, broken shock absorbers and struts, bent suspension, detached bumpers, broken mufflers and exhaust pipes and on the extreme side, accidents and sinkhole swallows. At AutoAid we’ve addressed all but the sinkhole vehicle damage and we’ve directed clients to recover the cost of the damage to their vehicles from the City of L.A. https://claims.lacity.org/Home/BasicClaim

Using your ABS (Anti-Lock Brakes) in the Pouring Rain

Anti-Lock Brake systems were introduced to assist drivers in maintaining control of their vehicle during emergency braking in all weather conditions. Especially in rain, snow, ice and slick conditions. Simply stated, The ABS computer senses when a wheel locks up  when applying the brake pedal and electronically compensates for it by equalizing the brake pressure to all the wheels, thereby  avoiding a skidding and out of control vehicle. If you've never experienced the ABS engaging, the brake pedal will pulsate, the brakes will make unfamiliar and sometimes strange growling noises, but not to fear, the system is doing what it's designed to do.

Hydroplaning caused this accident. My wife Survived.

Hydroplaning caused this accident. My wife Survived.

    Thanks to the Air Bag System in our 2007 Nissan Versa, my wife suffered minor injuries when the car Hydroplaned on the 101 near Santa Barbara during a rain storm last year. Even when driving through sitting water on the freeway with good tires and at a safe speed, hydroplaning can occur simply due to the separation and lift created by water between the tire surface and the road. Unfortunately, the car was a total loss and fortunately my wife wasn't. We loved that little car, but I love my wife more.   Take advantage of the Wet Weather offer at AutoAid which includes a free inspection of tires, brakes, wipers, lights and more to keep you safe on the road during this long overdue rainy season in Southern California
