Think of Buick service professionals as doctors who can diagnose a car’s illness. Of course, just because you said something was wrong about your car doesn’t mean they can immediately provide a solution without assessing the vehicle. They need to know the source of the problem to come up with the best fix. Otherwise, it’s just applying band aid to a wound that requires a complex treatment strategy.
While a Buick auto service center is always open to help you out, time is of the essence. You need to determine whether there’s an immediate need to have your car repaired or serviced. Knowing the symptoms of a failing car is necessary for you to provide the care it needs. Read more from this article: http://bit.ly/2yUtg1S

Because your Buick’s brakes are crucial to your safety, it’s important to ensure they are in the best condition. Brakes are prone to wear and tear, especially if you’re always on the road. However, their service life still depends, to a large extent, on your driving style and maintenance routine. Bringing your vehicle to a Buick service center in Portland is one way to ensure the quality and condition of your brakes, but there are other steps you can take to prolong their life.
Avoid Stopping from High Speed
Sudden stops from high speed will ruin your car’s braking system. You hurt your brakes just a little bit more if you stop from high speeds like 65 mph instead of 55. This is due to the vehicle’s motion called kinetic energy. You can gauge this energy by multiplying half of the vehicle’s weight by the square of the speed. This energy is then turned into heat whenever you brake. The lesser the speed, the lesser kinetic energy and brake material are used and less heat is generated. The car’s brakes don’t have to work too hard that they wear themselves out if you don’t make sudden stops often. Read more from this article: http://bit.ly/2xUudJ1
