Ball Joint Failure-See pictures

This is the latest part failure added to our wall of shame.  We saw this vehicle 42 miles ago.  Customer declined repair at that time.  Warned customer that vehicle shouldn't be driven.  Very unsafe.  Vehicle came back on a tow truck     When a ball joint is getting ready to brake you have very little warning.  You will probably feel a shimmy in the steering wheel and about the time you ask yourself what that is,  Boom it breaks.  And hopefully you are not on the freeway doing 70 mpr with a car load of kids.    Your vehicle mileage can be deceptive.  Lets say you have a 10 year old car but only 25,000 miles on your vehicle.  You would think that your ball joints wouldn’t be worn out.  But your vehicle is 10 years old and can be worn out.  Sometimes not driving your vehicle a lot can be harder on your vehicle than driving your vehicle every day   In an ... read more

11th Annual FREE BRAKES at DuFresne's Auto Service

11th Annual FREE BRAKES at DuFresne's Auto Service

11 Years ago DuFresne's Auto Service started collecting non-perishable food for the Oregon Food Bank. If you brought in 3 cans of food you would receive a FREE BRAKES INSPECTION and if you needed brakes the PADS AND OR SHOES would be FREE. We had one barrel that the OFB had provided. The first year we had a hard time filling the barrel. Nancy ran to Costco at the end of the promotion and bought food to fill the barrel. Our FREE BRAKES has grown steadily over the course of 11 years. We now have a POD to hold the food during the month. We have customers who store food all year and drop off at our POD. We even have customers that drop food before the month starts. Over the course of the years we have given away over 1000 FREE BRAKES to customers and have made the OFB TOP 10 list of donations 2 years in a row. If you would like us to check your brakes give us a call to make an appointment or E-mail Tee at [email protected] Bring in a grocery bag of food when you dro ... read more
