Why European Car Repair is Different

At Milito’s Auto Repair in Chicago, your European car isn’t just another car. No matter how similar they might appear on the surface, European cars are different. They aren’t built, wired, or programmed quite the same as their domestic and Japanese counterparts.

European cars travel at higher speeds with better handling, and are generally designed to last longer. They also tend to get more miles to the gallon. They’re often more expensive than their domestic counterparts. But with that you receive the quality of materials — and engineering — that European automakers tend to use.

What is the difference for European vehicle repair?

European brands are often recognized for their superior craftsmanship and driving performance. But many of their proprietary parts do need to be specially ordered, which can come at a cost.

And as luxurious as European cars are, common problems and fixes abound. The mechanics at Milito’s Auto Repair are knowledgeable about European car repair. They have the expertise and experience to narrow down the potential list of problems sooner and identify model-specific issues no matter which make or model you drive.

Top Repair Problems for European Cars

Every make and model comes with it’s own set of possible problems, but there are some common issues.

Suspension and Steering Components — Ball joints, sway bar links, and control arm bushings have been reported to wear out at around 100,000 miles. Front upper strut mounts may wear prematurely, resulting in a loud noise from the front of the vehicle when going over bumps. We can fix all types of suspension and steering problems!

Oil and Power Steering Leaks — Most noted at around 55,000 miles, symptoms include a squealing noise, leaking fluid, low fluid levels, and decreased steering performance.

Electrical Components — Owners have reported that the most common problems are failure of digital dashboard display or console, erratic lights, and failed tailed lamps.

Engine and Transmission Mounts— These components isolate vibration and noise from the passenger compartment of the vehicle. When the mounts no longer hold the powertrain firmly in place, the engine will lift up on acceleration and may slam down when you release the throttle. You’ll hear a bump or thud as the engine lifts and drops, and eventually damage may result.

All of these problems and more can be fixed by the European auto service mechanics at Milito’s Auto Repair in Chicago.

Benefits of Getting Regular Check-Ups By Expert European Car Mechanics

Improved Reliability

If you don’t take good care of your vehicle, it won’t be there for you in the future.

While this means oil changes and tire rotations, it also entails having routine check-ups performed by expert european car repair mechanics at Milito’s Auto Repair in Chicago.

Higher Resale Value

If you’re looking to sell your european car at some point in the future, you’ll want to keep up with routine service and maintenance.

This will help to ensure that it continues to run in optimal condition. Selling it will not only be easier down the road, but much more profitable!

Better Fuel Economy

First, make sure your tire pressure is set to the right levels. This prevents your car from expending unnecessary energy and fuel while moving.

If your air filter is clogged or your fuel lines are leaking, your vehicle’s fuel economy can be negatively affected by up to 20%.
