Routine wheel alignments keep your vehicle running safely and efficiently by reducing tire wear, improving gas mileage, and promoting safer driving conditions. On the other hand, wheel alignment problems left untreated have the potential to turn into steering and suspension issues because driving with wheels out of alignment not only puts stress on your tires but also on suspension components. We have state-of-the-art wheel alignment equipment at CSE Automotive and will make sure any alignment or suspension issues you’re experiencing are totally straightened out.
Brake Inspection, Service & Repair
There are several ways to tell if your vehicle’s braking system needs service. Lots of cars today have brake wear sensors, which cause a screeching sound when your brakes have reached the end of their lifecycle. For vehicles without sensors, squeaks, squeals, and grinding noises—indicating your brake pads are completely worn away and you’re hearing metal on metal—are a strong indicator you need brake repairs. The certified mechanics at CSE Automotive happy to inspect, resurface, and turn your brake rotors and calipers as needed to make sure your brakes don’t let you down.
Exhaust / Muffler Service & Repair
Your exhaust system is more than just a muffler. It is a series of pipes that run under your car connecting your muffler and catalytic converter. At CSE Automotive, we can take care of all your exhaust service needs, including catalytic converter repair, exhaust manifold repair, exhaust repair and replacement, muffler repair and replacement, and tailpipe repair and replacement. Our technicians will make sure your vehicle runs quieter, cleaner, and more efficiently than before, so you enjoy better vehicle performance. We also do exhaust pipe-bending, welding, and fabrication.

Plus, you can feel good about taking care of your emissions issue, as a properly functioning emission system not only ensures a cleaner environment, but peak vehicle performance as well.
Your suspension system includes an intricately aligned series of components that work together to ensure smooth driving and accurate steering. Suspension parts that require periodic inspection include ball joints, control arms, control arm bushings, sway bar bushings and end links, trailing arms, lateral links, tie rods, idler arms, and pitman arms. If any of these components fail or get out of whack, your steering can become inexact and dangerously unpredictable. If you suspect you need suspension service, please make an appointment and we’ll determine exactly what your vehicle needs.
Tire and wheel assemblies are prone to various weight discrepancies that can cause a multitude of problems for drivers. At CSE Automotive, we use computerized wheel balancers to pinpoint weight differentiation within a tire and wheel assembly. Based on the information we receive from our computerized wheel balancing equipment, our technicians will apply additional weight to the indicated areas to alleviate vibrations and help the assembly roll more smoothly. With your wheels properly balanced, you will enjoy an overall smoother ride, greater control, and longer lasting tires.
