6000 × 4000
We hope everyone is staying warm today.

If you are having any concerns with your vehicle (regardless of brand) we are here to help. Below is a quick list of common concerns with temperatures this low.

Tire pressure lights will likely be on due to the dramatic change in temperature. If you’d like us to check - we are open today until 7 pm.

Shaking / vibrating steering wheel while driving: this can be caused by ice forming in your wheel wells - particularly if you’re driving and then parking your vehicle in a garage. When the snow or ice melts in a warmer garage, it can refreeze when your car and engine cools down.  This causes ice to form and creates an imbalance in the wheel balance. Our indoor shop can help thaw your rims - and get you back on the road.

Warning lights / sensors inactive - extreme cold can cause sensors to have errors triggering lights to be on. Please call us at 605-361-0361 so we can help determine how we can help.

Slow start / no start - cold batteries and engines can have a tough time starting. If your car is a Ford/Lincoln and it’s less than 5 years old the Roadside Assistance number is 800-241-3673 (Ford), and 800-521-4140 (Lincoln). You’ll need to have your VIN & license plate # handy. They can jump start or tow your vehicle for you. Older than 5 years, but need assistance? You can use your credit card to pay a one-time fee.

If you are unsure if your car is under warranty - or with Roadside Assistance, you can call us at 605-361-0361 for information until 7 pm tonight.
