gear shift on a vehicle

If your transmission isn’t shifting correctly, you’ll want to be careful about how you choose to proceed.

At Schaeffer Automotive in Huntingburg, IN we can take a look at your issues and also give you some tips on what to do when that option isn't available yet.

Unless you are confident in your abilities as an automotive mechanic, there is really only one rule when purchasing a flood-damaged vehicle: don’t do it. Unfortunately, sometimes sellers aren’t particularly straight-forward with their used cars. Many will try to hide the fact that it’s been damaged by floodwaters at all or try to convince potential buyers that the car is in fact fine. “It has gone months with no issues” or “technically it is flood-damaged but” are two red flags, and while it isn’t impossible for a flood car to be fine, it’s altogether a good idea to stay away.

Obviously, your brakes are essential. However, it’s easy to neglect or ignore brake issues, and even miss them altogether; as long as the truck still stops, many people don’t see the need to have their brakes serviced. From Schaeffer Automotive in Huntingburg, IN, here are some common brake issues, and why you should fix them.
