    Exhaust issues tend to be neglected, and we get that; there are just other parts of your vehicle that you'd rather focus on.

  • Have you checked your battery? If it looks like this - It's bad!

    When you are having trouble with your car or truck starting and you open the hood up to take a peek to see this....you'll see what an overly corroded battery looks like. This happens naturally over time on vehicle battery terminals.  If you are like 99% of normal Independence drivers, you don't check your oil or your battery so you don't keep an eye on the amount of corrosion that's building up on your car or truck battery.  Here at Lee's Auto Repair, we do and there are solvents that we can use here in the shop during a battery maintenance service that will help slow the corrosion process but nothing that can prevent it 100%. Way before it gets to this point, we will be suggesting you consider replacing the battery. 

  • How is the Air Quality in Your Vehicle?

    When driving around town, your vehicle's engine needs clean air to burn the fuel – and it needs a lot. In fact, a typical vehicle needs about 216,000 gallons of air for every tank of gas. All that air passes through a filter that catches the dust and dirt. Eventually, the filter gets completely full, and because the filter can only hold so much, dirt starts getting through. At Lee's Auto Repair in Independence, we want to help you get the best air quality in your vehicle, but first, we want to explain the process of where this dirty air is going. 

  • Is it a bad brake master cylinder or something else
