…but before Jack Frost settles in for the long haul, here are a few things you should do to make sure your vehicle is ready for the cold season.
1. Check your battery: Cold weather is very harsh on your battery. When those temperatures drop, starting an engine can take almost twice as much current as it would need on an average day. Have a technician run a load test to see if it’s time to replace your battery.
2. Have your cowl drains checked: Leaves may get stuck in the drains that run from the base of the windshield. This can cause water back-up and major damage to electrical [...]

Brake components have changed quite a bit over the past decade but the basic principals are still the same. Back when automobile manufacturers cared less about weight, fuel economy and performance, brake components were built to be heavy and strong. The excessive mass of the rotors allowed room for them to be machined or “cut” down, in order to smooth them out and reuse the rotors when the brake pads need to be replaced.
These days, rotors are designed to weigh less, increase performance and reduce fuel consumption. Automobile manufacturers have reduced not only the weight, but the overall thickness of the rotor. The reduction in unsprung mass is noticeable on modern cars and has achieved the goal the engineers intended. However, modern brake rotors cannot be machined as they are too thin to remove [...]

This team of repair tech have simply been the BEST group of professionals I've encountered since we moved from Chicago in 2013. It took us a year to find Autohaus, and we started with the worst... VW Troy!!! Yuck! 2 words to describe VW Troy= overpriced + incompetent. We have been servicing a 2007 GTI and in late 2014 I was surprised that my 2007 Chrysler Crossfire was among vehicles the repair! Wow!!! Super happy. These guys do a great job and their prices are fair. The best part is they will work with you within in your budget all the while doing the repairs that ate truly required ensuring your vehicle remains road worthy. Oh, now they have employed Adam. Who is the absolute best service manager I have ever dealt with in my life. That's a huge honest statement. Trust me guys, I've have many new cars, "mostly Audis", and a couple of exotic marks and no one has been as knowledgeable and accurate as Adam. The guys doesn't tell you crap or make up diagnosis about your vehicle. I don't know how old he is, he looks very young, but he know his autos, and is very professional. I'd recommend any day of the week and twice on Thursdays!! Thanks Autohaus!!! You guys are the best!Seth H., Detroit
I always get fantastic, personal and competent service at Autohaus. This last time, my side mirror "kissed"
the side of my garage with a little too much passion and I damaged the cover. I had to go to the dealer for a
recall notice and I asked them what the cost was to repair the mirror. They said they had to REPLACE the total mirror for $580.00. When I asked Autohaus they said they could probably fix it for $280.00. Autohaus ended up FIXING the mirror for $192.00. It looks like new.Ilona T., Birmingham
Always great service, accurate estimates and fair pricing. Over 30 year as a satisfied customer!Chip T, Birmingham
It was my first experience taking my VW to a German specialty shop and I was a little skeptical. You guys did a great job finding out what was wrong with my car and getting it fixed in the most cost-efficient way. Knowing that I wasn't being charged for unnecessary labor hours or parts is all that I needed to make sure that I will use your shop in the future.Anonymous
Great service as usual!Patricia L., West Bloomfield
Good analysis and explanation of what was wrong with my car. Good estimate of time for repairs. Offer of rental car, that could be deducted from my bill (not needed this time). And timely repairs. Completed earlier than expected.Judy W. Detroit
I took my Tiguan to Autohaus for the first time recently The service was performed in a timely fashion at a reasonable rate and the staff were all very friendly. It's nice to have confidence in your car. Thanks Autohaus. First impressions go a long way. J.D., Huntington Woods
Great Customer Service and professionality. I change one injector and they charged me 1/3 of what I would have spent at the BMW dealership! I truly wish I knew them before, I would have saved a lot!!Marco A., Royal Oak
4 continuous years of stellar service!Tim S., Bloomfield Hills
All work done to my satisfaction!Judy W.
Very friendly, professional and quick service.A.H., Bloomfield Hills
