Perrin upgrades

Debris on differential plug

We recently had the opportunity to perform a Preventative Maintenance service on a 2014 Subaru BRZ Limited.  Our long-time customer bought this vehicle as his “fun” car and knows that in order to keep it running efficiently and effectively, maintenance is a MUST.  This vehicle had 19,000 miles on it when it came in for service.  After a good bit of research, our customer decided that he would like to service the rear differential, manual transmission and upgrade the shifter though the mileage was low.  He wanted to change out the conventional differential oil and replace it with synthetic gear oil.  He also wanted to get rid of some of the “slop” from the factory shifter so he upgraded to a Perrin shifter bushing and rear transmission mount.  We were in total agreement and the following pictures show a little bit of what we did.   The car drives like a dream, and our customer loves his fun car even more !

THANK YOU to everyone that voted for us and helped us bring home the title of “Best Auto Repair” in Lexington, SC for Two Years in a row !  We are extremely appreciative of all the support, and Thank You for believing in us and allowing us to live our dream.  Thank you for supporting local business !

We all want our vehicle’s heat to warm our bones, but we need clear windows to see well.  Set your control to a comfortable temperature AND set air flow direction to Defrost.  Doing so allows the heat of the engine to warm the cabin, and the defrost turns the air conditioning compressor “ON” to aid in moisture removal, thereby clearing the glass for you to see.  If your vehicle’s air conditioning is not operating correctly or at all, defrosting windows will take forever.

We’ve all seen the person that has foggy windows and is peeping through a small clear area in the glass while trying to drive.  That person has an A/C issue.  Summer heat played havoc on your vehicle systems, and Winter will prove the weakness of these systems.  The first “big” season cold snap will arrive soon.  Don’t be the person with the poor windshield wipers, tires that have too little tread for traction, or a battery that is too weak to start the car.  Our staff will inspect your vehicle and recommend any items that need attention.  Winter inspections are complimentary – our visual inspection includes:

  • Tires
  • Brakes
  • Horn
  • Fluids
  • Wipers
  • Battery
  • Filters
  • Air Conditioning System
