Car making noises it shouldn't?? Come see us before the summer actually heats up!

[03/18/20]   With COVID-19 having an impact on our lives and businesses, I wanted to inform everyone that we are currently still open for business and able to handle your vehicular maintenance and emergencies.

We are following the guidance of global health experts at the World Health Organization (WHO) and U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) on preventing the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

We are reminding our employees about frequent hand washing, and we are regularly cleaning and disinfecting our facilities and equipment. We are asking that our employees stay home from work if they feel sick.

As this situation is evolving rapidly, please refer to the website to keep up to date with COVID-19 information.

Thank you for trusting us with your business.

[03/12/20]   * Is your car slow to start when it is cold?

It may be time for a new set of spark plugs and wires. The battery could be weak. An electronic component may be going bad. Any one of these reasons can be tracked down by the car mechanics at Countryside Auto Repair.

* Do you experience hesitation in your engine when you accelerate?

You may have a clogged fuel line or air filter. Or, your engine may not be getting enough spark. Do you know the last time your fuel and air filters were changed. How about your spark plugs and wires?

* Have you purchased a used car with no maintenance records?

Let us give it a safety inspection and inform you of any immediate needs. SAFETY FIRST!


Spring is around the corner, as are road trips and vacations. If you haven't had a tune up in a while it might be a good idea to schedule one. If your fuel mileage isn't where it's supposed to be it's a good sign that your spark plugs are bad. Call Carlos and schedule a tune up!

Ford's Raptor May Get Supercharged V8 Powered Special Edition: Report

Ummm, yes please. The Ford Raptor has always been one of my favorite trucks stock from factory. Once you start modifying the thing, the possibilities are endless. Having one supercharged from Ford would be awesome! #ford #fordraptor #svt Detroit is overflowing with big fast off-road truck rumors right now, as Ram is planning a Rebel TRX which will supposedly make use of the Hellcat supercharged Hemi, and it would seem that Ford is fighting back with its own supercharged V8 hopped up version of the Raptor. According to Car and Driver... 03/19/2019

Screech, Squeal: When to Replace Your Car's Brake Pads

1988 Lamborghini LM002 SUV

Did you know Lamborghini made a SUV in the past? A lot of people don't but it's pretty cool. On the auction block right now for $325k if you got it. Long before the Bentley Bentayga and Rolls-Royce Cullinan; when Ferrari wouldn't be caught dead thinking about building an SUV, and before Lamborghini's own Urus, there was the Lamborghini LM002. The LM002 was an SUV in every sense of the term... 02/20/2019

Midwest winters can be brutal and cause rust issues. This Murano was in desperate need of a new rear cradle. Before and after is a game changing repair for this vehicle.

[01/28/19]   Ok, last week we said to make sure to get your batteries checked because of the cold...but seriously, this week is going to be worse.

-50 with wind chills will kill marginal batteries and nothing is worse than a no start. Prepare before hand, not when it's already too late!


It's going to get cold really cold. Make sure your battery is up to par and stop by to get it checked. Nothing worse than waking up in the morning to a no-start or dead battery! 01/17/2019

If you're out celebrating the 4th, you're probably going to use some bug spray. After your done celebrating or camping that spray usually sits on a shelf for months right?

As a little tip, if your using bug spray with Deet you can ALSO use that to bring your older cars dull hazy headlight back to almost clear.

Save your money on those expensive kits.


Stop in and get that AC checked out and/or your fluids checked and oil changed.

This heat can really take it's toll so do what you can for preventative maintenance.
