Undercar Services: Maintenance & Repair

Save On Auto Care approaches caring for your car or truck from the ground up. That means that before we look over the internal components of your ride we take time to make sure that you're working with a solid foundation. Our comprehensive undercar inspections and services cover an important area of your car that can easily be neglected and give the foundation of your vehicle the care and attention it deserves.

Avoid disaster by coming in and having your undercarriage checked out today. Call us at 909-920-9492 or visit us in Upland, CA so we can schedule an appointment to ensure your car is in tip-top shape!

Our competitively priced undercar services include:

Alignment
Wheel alignment (or simply alignment) is standard car maintenance that involves adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the manufacturer's specifications. The main purpose is to let the suspension and the steering systems operate at their desired angles - this reduces tire wear. Alignment is a complicated process and not all mechanics get it right. To have experts handle your car's alignment, visit Save On Auto Care.

Anti-Lock Brakes
Anti-lock brakes prevent wheel lock-up when rapidly decelerating by automatically modulating the brake pressure during an emergency stop. With this system, the wheels are able to maintain traction with the road while braking. Failure of the anti-lock brakes could lead to an increase in the risks of multiple vehicle crashes and run-off road crashes. To avoid this, have your anti-lock brake system checked and repaired by experts. At Save On Auto Care, we have anti-lock brake experts who will examine and repair your faulty ABS - keeping you safe.

Brake System Flush
Brake fluid is hygroscopic (it absorbs moisture). The absorbed moisture lowers the fluid's boiling point. It also corrodes the lines and cylinders. With the lowered boiling point, the brake fluid could boil during braking which makes you lose braking ability. Although this is an extreme scenario, it does happen in heavy braking. To reduce the effects of the absorbed moisture, auto manufacturers recommend that you have a brake flush done periodically. A brake system flush involves the replacement of used and contaminated fluid with fresh fluid. With Save On Auto Care's quick lube services, you will have a brake system flush performed by brake experts. Call 909-920-9492 or visit Save On Auto Care today.

Brakes
A brake is a mechanical device for slowing or stopping a vehicle (usually by means of friction). In short, a brake inhibits your car's motion. It lets you stop the car whenever and wherever you choose. Brakes are one of the most important parts of a motor vehicle. Without them, you would not be able to stop the car. If your vehicle's brakes are having issues, consider having them worked on. Brake experts at Save On Auto Care can work on your car's brakes to ensure you have a safe drive.

Chassis
A chassis is the car's internal framework that supports the body and other parts like the wheels, engine, transmission, driveshaft, differential, and suspension. A weak or damaged chassis will translate to a weak car. To have a strong and properly working vehicle, have your car's chassis checked for defects. At Save On Auto Care, there are experienced undercar service providers who can work on your chassis.

Custom Exhaust
A motor vehicle exhaust system is piping used to guide exhaust gasses away from the engine to the outdoors. Although the exhaust system's main purpose is to guide exhaust gases from the engine to the outdoors, it can be modified to increase engine power, reduce pollution, and reduce noise. To achieve this, you need to invest in a custom-made exhaust system.

At Save On Auto Care in Upland, CA 91786, we can create a custom-made stainless steel exhaust for your vehicle. We specialize in custom performance exhaust systems, stainless steel mufflers, mufflers, exhaust kits, racing mufflers, and exhaust accessories for a huge and diverse range of vehicles: customized cars, standard road cars, classic cars, kit cars, 4x4's, imports, and racecars.

Differential Flush
The differential is a car part that compensates for the difference in travel distance between the inner wheels and outer wheels when the vehicle is turning. Due to the differential's position in most non-four-wheel-drive (FWD) vehicles (located at the rear and under the car), it does not get any of the star treatment the engine gets. The one thing that every car owner needs to know is that failure of the differential will mean failure of the car. To save the differential from failure, you need to have differential fluid changed every 30,000 to 50,000 miles. Changing the oil on the differential is as important as changing the car's engine oil. Although checking and changing differential oil is pretty easy, you need to visit an auto shop to get a comprehensive differential flush. For differential flush services, visit or call Save On Auto Care in Upland, CA 91786 today.

Differentials
The differential transfers the engine power to the wheels. One important function of the differential is to pass on power to the wheels while allowing them to rotate at different speeds - thus the name differential. When turning, the outer wheels travel a larger distance than the inner wheels do (also the front wheels travel a longer distance than the rear wheels). This means that all four wheels travel at different speeds during a turn and this is where the differential comes in to help. To make sure your vehicle's differentials are working properly, have them checked regularly. Contact Save On Auto Care today for differentials examination and servicing.

Driveline
A driveline is a part of your motor vehicle that connects the engine and the transmission to the wheel axles. The driveline consists of the parts of the powertrain less the engine and transmission. Failure of the driveline means that the car would not move since energy cannot be transmitted from the engine to the wheel axles. Therefore, make sure that your car's driveline is regularly inspected and serviced. And, at Save On Auto Care, you can have the driveline serviced by experts.

Exhaust
In a motor vehicle, an exhaust system is a piping used to guide exhaust fumes away from the engine - usually to the rear of the vehicle. A properly functioning exhaust system not only sounds better, it is better - for you, your car, and the environment. Save On Auto Care has expert technicians to service your car's exhaust system.

Shocks
Shocks (or shock absorbers) are mechanical devices designed to smooth out rough roads. The devices do this by converting kinetic energy to another form of energy. Properly working shocks reduce the effect of traveling over rough ground, leading to improved ride quality and vehicle handling. When shocks develop problems, driving on poorly leveled roads becomes unpleasant, and your vehicle may sway when turning. To have your vehicle's shocks diagnosed and repaired, visit Save On Auto Care today.

Struts
Much like a shock absorber (shocks), your car's struts provide a dampening effect as you travel over a road's surface. By absorbing the shock of the road, struts allow passengers to ride in a car without constant and uncomfortable motion. Struts work a bit differently than shocks in that they provide structural support for your car's suspension. This means that struts support your car's weight, unlike shocks which only regulate the speed at which the weight is transferred. Struts usually last around 50,000 or 60,000 miles. This is simply because the damping characteristics of the parts gradually deteriorate over time. Call Save On Auto Care at 909-920-9492 if you have questions about the struts on your car. Our expert technicians will diagnose any problems and help you make an informed decision about repairs.

Tires
As tires get older, they lose traction and deteriorate from the inside out, increasing the likelihood of a tire bursting. This can cause a rapid loss of control of your vehicle. To have a better performing vehicle, you need to make sure the tires are in good condition. For all your tire needs, contact Save On Auto Care today.

What People Say About Us


  • -Brian M.

    We were driving through upland on our way to Arizona for a baseball tournament. The heater hose broke on our Yukon and AAA recommended Save On Auto Care. We had no idea who to use or who to trust. We were towed to Save On Auto Care and they were very busy. They knew we had to get to Arizona for a baseball tournament the next morning and I was a little worried about being taken advantage of. They ordered the hose and got us in and out within 3 hours and the price was very fare. They all were extremely professional and courteous. If they were in our home town I know who we would trust with all our vehicles!


  • -Diana L.

    I came in after my car had broken down on the freeway. The owner made me feel at ease right away. He kept me updated frequently on the status of my car. He even offered to keep his shop open a little later so that I can come drop off my new car battery. Truly exceptional customer service, professional, and fair pricing! David and his team are very caring and friendly. I will definitely bring my car here for all repairs from now on. I highly recommend this great place!

    Excellent service. Tells you exactly what needs to be done. Dave was very specific on what is necessary and what repairs are to be scheduled at a future time. I would rate this auto service 5 stars and would highly recommend them.


  • -Scott G.

    I haven't needed their services in quite some time. However, today, I came in regarding my water pump, and I spoke with Paul. He took the to check under my hood to confirm my suspicions. Instead of just doing the work to charge me, he advised me that he thought my vehicle was still under warranty and to verify with the local Chevy deal. They "lost" a repair job, but strengthened their stellar reputation. It is so difficult to find a honest mechanic, but look no further then Save On Auto Care.


  • -Alfonso N.

    Always great service up front by Cindy and the girls, and great service by the guys in the back! Very fair and very friendly; highly recommend them. I've been bringing my vehicles here for several years.

  • -Barry W.

    I have been bringing our 2008 Honda Accord here for many years and never cease to be amazed at how good their service is. Cindy is always upbeat and easy to work with. I highly recommend their shop for their excellent service and they stand behind their work 100%. They work on all imports and specialize in servicing Toyotas and Hondas. They will have all my business on my Camry too.


  • -Rachel C.

    Came in for the first time, got an oil change. I didn't have an appointment, only waited about 30 mins. Very friendly staff, nice waiting area, lots of magazines, coffee, & a fridge with water. Close to home, I think I've found my new auto shop!


  • -Eileen R.

    I'm a return customer since 2014 for car maintenance and check engine light. Cindy is always cheerful as well helpful and informative. Scheduling an appointment is a breeze. David and the team here really know what they are doing and give you honest recommendations. This is our go to place. Highly recommend


  • -Lydia P.

    I have a 2007 Honda Accord, the guys at Save on Auto Care. Have helped to take care of my car over the years. With regular scheduled service I am well over 200,000 miles on my car and will be rolling into 300 soon. The honest, well priced service I receive gives me peace of mind as I make my commute everyday. Thanks for keeping my car on the road and me safe!


  • -Lisa C.

    I absolutely feel that my car & I are in the best of hands at Save On. I bought my car years ago because it was cute & I had no idea how particular the make was in terms of parts ( Volkswagen ). I can't describe the recent ordeal that took I think 3 weeks to resolve. But David & the rest of the team worked hard to find the exact used part I needed in order to save the additional money that a new part would cost from the dealership. And when I went to pay the bill, I know they showed kindness to me once again. David & the rest of the staff have great automotive knowledge, they complete work timely & always have fair prices. I feel safe recommending Save On to family & friends, especially in terms of fair pricing & sound repairs.


  • -Kevin K.

    This shop is amazing. I can't explain how Cindy is. She understood my situation and you wouldn't believe what they could have charged me but didn't. Then the owner really helped me out of a bad spot. The best auto repair shop by far that I've ever dealt with. But THE BEST thing about this shop is Cindy. She's professional, friendly, understanding and pleasant to deal with.


  • -Phil W.

    One of the best experiences I've had taking my car to a shop. From the start they did everything they could to make my life easier during my cars repairs. An honest, upfront family run shop that I recommend for any of your auto needs!


  • -Rogelio R.

    Went in for a brake and lamp inspection. Service was fast and excellent. Will be back for my smog check. Highly recommend. Great service!!!


  • -Lacy W.

    I came here for the first time today for a oil change and brake service. When I mentioned that they priced their brake service higher than the special offered at the dealership, they gave me a very generous discount. They offered cold water, soda, or coffee at the front and the woman who works in the front was very helpful and professional. I appreciate the service and I will definitely be returning.


  • -Omar H.

    Very professional business as well as the service reps here. Very easy to deal with and amazing customer service. This is a one stop shop for all your automotive needs! They helped me out and took care of me for an inspection that I needed to do on my car, they also checked everything out and made sure all was good!


  • -Phil M.

    Quick stop here for a smog check after being suggested by AAA. Fast service, fair prices, and good vibes from the crew. Definitely will come back if I need anything done to the daily.


  • -Sammy P.

    Kind and friendly. They provide drinks and snacks while you wait. Good and inexpensive services. The name says it all.
