Properly aligned steering and suspension systems on your vehicle are responsible for maintaining comfortable riding conditions and driving performance. When a car’s suspension does not work properly it can be dangerous. A vehicles suspension absorbs bumps smoothly; the shocks and struts enable proper steering, and prevent the car from pulling in directions you do not want to go.
No matter what type of suspension system your vehicle has, the auto repair experts at Reliable Auto Center have the tools and experience to diagnose and repair your shock, struts, and suspension problems.
To help identify if your steering and suspension systems are working effectively, Reliable Auto Center will examine all of your steering and suspension parts, and will also check:
- Steering wheel alignment
- Power steering fluid
- Tightness of nuts and bolts
- Unbalanced tires
- Torn or worn steering belts
A faulty transmission can negatively impact your vehicle’s performance. If you have noticed spots in your driveway or garage, your vehicle may be leaking transmission fluid. Low fluid levels in your automobile can ruin a transmission. To prevent damage to your transmission it has to be resealed. Modern cars and trucks have transmissions that are more complicated than they were in the past.
Extreme heat is a major cause of premature transmission failure and the reason why many cars end up at Reliable Auto Center. We recommend after a vehicle has been working excessively after getting stuck in mud or snow to stop in for transmission service. Heavy loads can also cause overheating and reduce transmission life.
At Reliable Auto Center we offer transmission services:

Transmission problems start out small but get much worse over time. Receiving the proper transmission maintenance can go a long way in saving both time and money.

Wheel alignments are part of a standard automobile maintenance consisting of adjusting the wheels on your vehicle so all the wheels are corresponding to each other. The purpose of a wheel alignment is to reduce the tire wear, gain better gas mileage, improve handling and ensure safer driving conditions. At Reliable Auto Center we have several years of experience performing wheel alignments to customers in Connecticut. We recommend customers follow the vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations noted in the owner’s manual. A Vehicle’s wheel alignment should be checked every 10,000 miles or at least once a year.
At Reliable Auto Center our wheel alignment details include:
- Inspection of steering and suspension systems
- Adjustment of wheel angles so they are parallel to each other and perpendicular to the ground
