Undercar Services: Maintenance & Repair

Rely on Griffith Automotive Repair in Tucson, AZ 85714 to provide quality care for your vehicle's undercarriage. Stop by our shop to see how we can help you or call 520-807-2886 for more information.

To keep your vehicle running at peak performance, we provide undercar services that 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 Griffith Automotive Repair.

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 Griffith Automotive Repair, 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 Griffith Automotive Repair's quick lube services, you will have a brake system flush performed by brake experts. Call 520-807-2886 or visit Griffith Automotive Repair 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 Griffith Automotive Repair 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 Griffith Automotive Repair, 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 Griffith Automotive Repair in Tucson, AZ 85714, 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 Griffith Automotive Repair in Tucson, AZ 85714 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 Griffith Automotive Repair 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 Griffith Automotive Repair, 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. Griffith Automotive Repair 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 Griffith Automotive Repair 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 Griffith Automotive Repair at 520-807-2886 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 Griffith Automotive Repair today.

    Coolant leak in my BMW. They did a full pressure test to make sure everything was good. Radiator cap was the only thing bad. Very happy to have issue resolved for just the price of a cap. They took card of me without charging for labor. Will be back.

    I took my 2002 Nissan Altima to a local tire shop for routine balance and rotation. At the tire shop they let me know that my tires were wearing out irregularly and they told me to check the alignment. They recommended Griffith Automotive and right away I made an appointment for the following week for an alignment. As soon as I arrived at Griffith Automotive Mark greeted me and told me that they would check the alignment and let me know what they found. The automotive experts found that my alignment was off because of the tie rod ends, they took me out to the shop and showed me exactly what the issue was. They also discovered that my struts would need to be replaced as soon as possible so that I would not have any alignment problems in the future. Mark gave me the estimate and it was very reasonable so I decided to have all the front end work done the following week. Sure enough my car was repaired in a timely manner and it rides like new again. I highly recommend Griffith Automotive to anyone who is looking for top notch automotive repair at a very reasonable price. I appreciate Mark's transparency and honesty. Griffith Automotive is the only place where I will get all my front end and suspension worked on. Thank you!

    Honest, Knowledgeable, Excellent!! Customer service is A+++. If there was a rating above 5 stars, I would give that! Last year another business recommended that I go to Griffith Automotive for an alignment. They aligned my car & it was excellently done. Last week, I had a quick oil change at a place near my apt. They had my oil change records, did a quick inspection & gave me a list of repairs. Because I was so positively impressed with Griffith Auto, I told them what the repair list said. They told me to bring my car in & they would give me a free inspection to make sure that my car needed that particular work & parts. They agreed that the timing belt needed replacing bc it was very old. My car had also been making a squeaking sound (maybe belts) & something felt loose under the hood. When Griffith Auto changed the timing belt, they noticed that the motor had old bolts thereby making the motor loose. Other parts & the belts needed tightened. I would've lost my engine & car. Griffith Automotive not only did an excellent job on replacing my car's timing belt, they also tightened the loose parts in my car at no additional charge. They were less expensive than the other quote and they told me I didn't need a couple of parts the oil change business had said I should get. Griffith Auto inspected & gave me a list of the work that would need to be done in the future (I have an older car), & let me know the order of importance of the maintenance I needed. I can definitely say that I will be having them service my car. They won me as a customer with their friendly & knowledgeable staff. They're honest & fair. They are very experienced & professional. They care about their customers. They guarantee their work & gave a lifetime warranty on the parts. I highly recommend Griffith Automotive Repair Service. They're worth more than 5 stars!!!

    In my initial communication with Tony and Mark they were both very helpful and asked me to come by so they could have a better understanding of my needs. Mark was very quick to discover and present a far better option and far more cost effective that what I had previously encountered. Upon scheduling for completion of the install, I threw a wrench in the works with replacing my side mirrors and it turned out that the ones I provided needed all kinds of additional parts. Mark went the extra mile in getting what was need and making it happen! In addition they worked within some crazy conflicts on my schedule, got the job completed in the time line needed, did both jobs at a great price and did the job with a smile It was a pleasure doing business with you and you will be my "go to guys" for any automotive needs or questions. Thank you!

    Just got my car fixed. My electronic throttle went out and I couldn't drive it safely. It was quick and they made sure to keep me in the loop as they went through it. It was all taken care of in one day. The rates were great and I couldn't be more impressed with the care they showed. I will definitely be back.

    Really upfront, nice people. They explained to my satisfaction what was wrong with my transmission, gave me a fair price, I was in-and-out quick. I was referred there by a friend who recommended their services. Good shop! They're busy so you'll have to schedule things a few days in advance, but that's proof of their quality.

    I have a 2019 370Z that I lowered. The car looked great after I lowered it but being that I am not a professional mechanic and don't have the equipment to do the alignment, my alignment was horrible. I could have made a lot of adjustments myself to make it better but I was frustrated and out of time since this is the vehicle I use to get to work. The fact that I work on my cars gives me at the very least the knowledge to know when an automotive shop is being dishonest. I took it to another shop and the lies came rolling in. I then took it to Firestone and they wouldn't touch it because of the aftermarket parts that I put on the vehicle. I talked to Tony on the phone and he told me what the car needed in order to fix the alignment. I knew he was being honest because I knew what it was going to take to do the repairs I just didn't want to do them and didn't have the proper equipment. I also voiced some concerns that I had and asked him if he could check my work. They tightened one of the components to spec that I failed to tighten all of the way and adjusted the dust shield on my rotor so it would stop making the grinding noise. They told me that in order to have the suspension running properly they would have to adjust the camber arms and ride height. They gave me an honest quote and the amount of work they said they had to do matched the time (money) they said it would require them to get the suspension dialed in. I was also able to talk to the technicians and they were nice guys and willing to talk to me about my suspension and heard me out when I told them what I wanted. You can tell when people HATE their jobs. These guys must get treated well at Griffith automotive and it shows, they seem to be in a good mood and very helpful. I'm sure the owner knows this but Tony and the technicians are worth keeping around. These guys will make your business stay around for the long haul. Being that I'm a car guy I have dealt with many dishonest shops and mechanics. Tony's also carries himself like he loves his job, the guy has great communication skills and is definitely a people person. So if you want an honest shop with great honest employees this is the shop to go to for quality work. Your employees are what makes your shop what it is. Thank you Griffith auto.

    By far the best shop I have ever been to! The staff are very professional and awesome to work with. I had complications with the engine I bought for my vehicle and they helped me every step of the way. Mark and Toni helped me with everything! They fought for me tooth and nail. They made sure my engine was covered under the warranty I had. Given all the things that I had going in my life, they handled everything. If I could give them more stars I would. I recommend them to my friends and family! They were more than fair when it came to price. There were some other issues with my truck and they addressed them to me and fixed them. Amazing shop! 10/10 stars! They went above all my expectations and standards!

    I met Mark and Tony yesterday. I learned about this shop from Raul at Discount Tire Store. Tony explained how my car would be evaluated regarding the condition of all front suspension parts. That helped to determine if anything needed attention before doing an alignment. I was pleased that the owner Mark spent some time with me and I'm happy with the results. I will be back and I recommend them without hesitation.

  • reviewicon

    Mark and Jeff are the best! They treat my truck like it was theirs. They always recommend the best solutions when needed and have the best prices in town. They treat you like family and they never suggest things that are not necessary like other auto shops. I highly recommend them.

    Wow what service! I came to this place per recommendation from discount tire and so happy I did.

Highly recommend using this garage for any of your needs!! I'll be back.
