QUIET TIME (Listening for Vehicle Problems)Posted June 16, 2019 7:04 AM
Everybody's got friends like this. You know, the kind who, the minute they get in their vehicle and turn the key, the sound system is deafening. They just love to hear that music, sports, news… anything but the sound of the vehicle itself.
And maybe you're that person, too. Here's something to consider: your sound system might be drowning out some valuable clues that could help you diagnose problems with your vehicle, problems that need to be dealt with. So, turn down the volume and listen for these things:
Here’s our B & M Auto Specialist suggestion - set a regular weekly alarm in your smartphone alerting you to listen to your vehicle once a week for five minutes. Just five minutes without the music or the sports show or public radio… whatever your taste is. You can even use your smartphone to record any noise you might be hearing. Between that and your description to your service advisor, a B & M Auto Specialist technician should be able to diagnose the source of the noise and get your vehicle sounding healthy again. Do it before that noise turns into the sound of a serious problem.
Who knew a little quiet time could be so useful?

Great customer service!
Alternator went out. Called B & M electric and they told me to come in. They installed it immediately. It was excellent service! They put it on and we was right on our way in less than an hour!!
Was an amazing place to take electronic devices to get repairs.
Excellent service. The owner was very nice and very helpful.
I've had nothing but good experiences here. Over the years I've pulled several failing alternators and starters and brought them in for overhaul. Most recently they diagnosed a bad alternator pulley. I couldn't get the alternator out myself, due to hidden bolts and zero clearance, so I had them do the whole job. Sure, they charge for their time, and expect to cover costs and make a profit. What's wrong with that?
These guys are professionals. The work they did on my Jeep couldn't have been done better anywhere else.
Always great service here.
Excellent prompt and professional service. Very good!
I am the owner of Auto Express, and B & M services cars for us to prep them for sale on a daily basis. They have great mechanics and very reasonable prices. I would recommend them for all your auto repairs!
Fast service, competitive prices...what more could you want? I hope not to come back, but if I have to, I will. You should too.
