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

How to Prepare Your Vehicle for Summer Heat

Just like how we need to prepare for summer -- breaking out the swimsuits, sunscreen, and everything in between -- we need to do the same for your vehicle. The rising temperatures can take a toll on your Audi, Volkswagen, and Porsche. However, the team at Dubwerx is here to ensure your vehicle is ready for whatever comes its way, including summertime fun.  Here is how to prepare your vehicle for the summer heat:  Let’ start with your tires.
