Steering System & Safety: Signs You Won’t Want To Miss

Problems with the steering system, although still dangerous, tend to give you a lot of warning signs before things go south. It’s important to heed these signs instead of ignoring them. This article will cover a couple of the more significant ones:   Difficulty in turning the wheel - Beware of power steering. Check the fluid reservoir. Fill it up if it’s empty. If the process repeats, inspect the vehicle for any signs of fluid leakage.   Steering wheel vibration - Although this can indicate wheel alignment problems, more often than not, it can also mean a problem with the power steering.

Keep Your Audi, Volkswagen, and Porsche Hydrated By Checking These Fluid

 Keep Your Audi, Volkswagen, and Porsche Hydrated By Checking These Fluid

Just like how you need fluids to stay hydrated, your Audi, Volkswagen, and Porsche do too. Your vehicle is comprised of various systems, including your braking system or steering system, and each of these systems requires different types of fluids in order for your vehicle to properly perform. It is important for a qualified technician to check your Audi’s, Volkswagen’s, and Porsche’s fluids regularly.  What exactly is the purpose of my vehicle’s fluids? If you are looking to preserve your vehicle’s fuel economy and longevity, proper fluid level is necessary. There are six key fluids in your vehicle that need to be maintained on a routine schedule. These fluids are engine, coolant (antifreeze), power steering fluid, brake fluid, transmission fluid, and windshield washer fluid.  Your engine components spin at thousands of reps per minute and your oil keeps all of these parts lubricated to minimize friction and optimal performance.

It is All in the Details -- Don’t Forget About Your Windshield Wipers and Headlights

It is All in the Details -- Don’t Forget About Your Windshield Wipers and Headlights

When we think of auto repair, we tend to think of more complicated procedures, such as transmission repair or brake service. The team at Dubwerx doesn’t want you to forget about your windshield wipers and lights. Both of these components of your vehicle are your first line of defense against the elements. Imagine you are driving down a dimly lit road in the middle of a rainstorm, your windshield wipers aren’t working, and your lights don’t turn on. You might find yourself in a dangerous situation.  At Dubwerx, we pay close attention to all the finer details on your Audi, Volkswagen, or Porsche, including your vehicle’s windshield wipers and lights. Without adequately working lights, you won’t be able to see the road, and other drivers most likely won’t be able to see you. Lights do get worn down, and they will require routine inspections and maintenance. It is essential to make sure both your low and high beams are correctly working. Don&rsquo ... read more

Why You Shouldn’t Ignore Hitting a Curb

Why You Shouldn’t Ignore Hitting a Curb

Hitting a curb may seem like a simple and small mistake, but it can wreak havoc on your vehicle. It doesn’t matter if you hit the curb or another stationary object at 5mph or 20mph. When you hit the curb, you jar the connection between your steering system and wheels. Your ability to steer safely and securely is immediately at risk. If you continue to drive your vehicle without performing the necessary repairs, the effects will become more severe.  Tire and wheel damage are common causes of hitting a curb. Your vehicle’s control arms and tire rods will be more damaged by the impact. Your tire rods are what connect your wheels to your steering system. If your tire rods are damaged, your steering will most likely be affected, and you might find yourself in an unsafe situation.  Any damage to your control arms and steering knuckles will also result in driveability and safety issues. Your vehicle’s control arms allow for up and down movement in your suspension ... read more

Main Differences Between European, Japanese, and Domestic Vehicles

Main Differences Between European, Japanese, and Domestic Vehicles

Drive down the Cincinnati streets, and you will see a variety of different European, Japanese, and Domestic models. Many of us are drawn to either European, Japanese, or Domestic vehicles, but what exactly makes these cars different? When you decide to drive an Audi, Porsche, or Volkswagen, you are deciding to drive an European vehicle that is easily distinguishable from a Domestic or Japanese model, and here is why: Design/Style: Imagine you have a European, Japanese, and Domestic vehicle parked side-by-side. What do you notice first? You will first notice int he difference in style with the European vehicle. In Europe, the looks of a vehicle is extremely important -- they design cars that are eye-catching and mesmerizing. The appearance of Japanese and American vehicles aren’t usually as sleek; Japanese car designs aren’t usually as updated as quickly as European vehicles.  Fuel-efficiency: When buying a vehicle, most people consider fuel economy, and Japanese vehi ... read more

Most Common Car Repairs in the Spring

Spring is just around the corner, which means it is time for spring cleaning. It is easy to remember to clean out the interior of your vehicle, specifically the spots where you might have spilled that cup of coffee on the way to a morning meeting or the crumbs your little ones left behind. However, don’t forget about the exterior of your Audi, Volkswagen, or Porsche, specifically what is under the hood. Here are the most common car repairs in the Spring:  Your tires probably underwent some wear and tear during the winter season. Tires should be examined and replaced if needed during spring.  Your windshield wipers also have undergone a lot during the colder months of winter.
