Davis Repair and the Maintenance Mindset

When it comes to their vehicles, some Centennial drivers don’t have a maintenance mindset. You know you need to take care of your cars, but it just seems really hard to get in the habit of scheduling maintenance. Centennial drivers generally accept that many things in life require regular care, but haven’t applied this knowledge to maintaining your vehicles. For example: your lawn. You water it every other day and mow it every week. You weed the flower beds and rake the leaves. There are other things that Centennial residents are diligent about. Going to the dentist twice a year. Clothes to the dry cleaner. Flu shots. Taking your kids to their doctor for a checkup before school starts. So Centennial drivers really are maintenance minded. They just have to learn to apply that mindset to cars. I mean, if you never brush your teeth or go to the dentist, you’ll become painfully aware of your neglect when you get a big cavity ... read more

Keep Your Tires Well Rounded in Centennial: Tire Rotation and Wheel Balancing at Davis Repair

Taking care of our tires is a vital part of car care for Denver area drivers. We know they have to be replaced when they wear out, but tires also require some important preventive maintenance. This maintenance will improve fuel efficiency and extend the life of your tires, so it’s well worth the effort and expense get it done. Tire maintenance includes keeping tires properly inflated, rotating tires, and balancing wheels. The recommended tire pressure for a vehicle’s tires is printed on a sticker on the inside of the driver’s side doorjamb.

Vehicles also get better traction, handling, and fuel economy on properly inflated tires. Check your tire pressure at least once a week and add air if ... read more

Shake It Up in Centennial!: Why Wheel Balancing

Our vehicles are not massage chairs. While we may enjoy a good vibration in an overstuffed recliner, we Centennial car owners generally want as smooth a ride as possible in our vehicles. One way to achieve this is to keep a vehicle’s wheels in balance. When a tire is mounted onto a wheel, it is usually out of balance. This means that as the wheel spins, there is a slight wobble to the path of the tire. For best handling performance and safety on the road, drivers want to minimize this wobble as much as possible; so we balance our tires. To balance a tire, your honest and friendly Davis Repair service advisor spins it on a machine or drum to determine where it is off-balance. He then attaches weights that counter-balance the uneven weight. Most car owners are surprised at how much balancing improves the smoothness of their ride. High-quality tires generally hold their balance well. But over time, wear and tear take their toll and tires can become unbal ... read more
