Why Is Your Steering System So Critical for Safety

The Importance of Steering System

While we all realize a sound steering system is essential for a safe drive, the challenge is which auto repair shop can you trust? Motorists here in Louisville, Shepherdsville, Shelbyville, and other nearby communities rely on Tony’s Brake & Alignment and its team ASE-certified auto mechanics. Why? They won’t compromise your safety or your pocketbook when it comes to steering system or other needed auto repair.

Your steering system — like wheels, brakes, and lighting — is one of the four cornerstones that enable safe, reliable mobility for you and your family. Unlike cars of yesteryear, modern steering systems have evolved into a sophisticated array of mechanical, electronic and software-driven computer modules, components, sensors, linkages, and actuators. In addition, steering is also integrated with suspension, body control, and other vehicle systems. Tony’s Brake & Alignment provides its auto mechanics with the most current training, tooling, equipment and other service and auto repair resources available. That gives you the best steering and auto repair expertise and value your money can buy.

“We’ve always had a reputation for caring for our customers and employees,” says shop owner Robert Ohlmann. “Our customers here in the Louisville area tell us in person or in the reviews they share on our website that our customer service is what sets Tony’s Brake & Alignment apart. Our honest, ethical and caring approach is rooted in the vision of my grandfather: “You don’t have to sell customers anything. Just solve their problems, be honest, and you’ll have all the work you can handle.” That’s a philosophy that’s served our customers for three generations. It’s what we do.

Your vehicle’s sure-footedness matters. As your NAPA AutoCare Center and Michelin Alliance Dealer here in Louisville, we know how the weather, roads and terrain changes here challenge tires, wheels, steering and other related systems. Sudden stops, changes in speed, tight turns, running over rock and other debris, hitting a pothole and other hazards can wreak havoc. Whenever damage occurs, or as a Spring and Fall precautionary check-up before the extremes of Summer and Winter driving impact us, knowing your vehicle’s steering and other safety systems are good-to-go.
