TUNING & BRAKES
TUNE UPS: When we say tune up, its not like the old days when a mechanic would tune your vehicle by adjusting things like air/fuel mixture, ignition timing or idle speed. With computer controls, fuel injection and electric ignitions our certified technicians will inspect many components of your vehicle including spark plugs, wires, coil packs (depending on vehicle), distributors (depending on vehicle), air filter, fuel filter, PCV valves, fuel system and intake air system. Some older vehicles may require additional parts or service not listed. Our technicians will replace and repair necessary components and clean the intake air system and fuel system to keep your vehicle operating at it's peak performance.
BRAKES: Brake systems can contain many components such as calipers, rotors, brake pads, brake lines, hydraulic hoses and bleeding the system.
Free Brakes For Life: We offer Gold and Platinum brake pad options. Both carry limited lifetime warranties on pads as well as 6 month (180 day) labor warranty for Gold Brake Pads and 12 month (365 day) warranty on Platinum Brake Pads. Never worry about your brake pads again as long as you own your vehicle*. When scheduling brake work, advise your technician which option you prefer.
Platinum brake pads are premium brake pads and are perfect for daily driving and they offer the best performance. These pads are going to stop faster and last longer than economy and mid-grade pads. Platinum pads produce low brake dust so if your ride sports custom wheels then you'll probably want to avoid unsightly brake dust by upgrading your brake pads from the economy version. These pads have patented 4 layer HEX shims to eliminate noise and revolutionary burnishing strips to allow for proper break-in of new brake pads and rotors. The Platinum brake pads will include premium hardware if hardware is required to complete the job.
Gold brake pads are great for daily driving. These pads offer advanced, application-specific formulations to stop faster and last longer. Similar to the Platinum brake pads, the Gold pads produce low dust so they keep your wheels cleaner than a lower grade brake pad. If you want ultra-quiet braking then the multi-layer shim on these brakes pads will provide just that.
*Certain restrictions apply. Valid with orignal receipt of service. For full warranty details, please refer to our written warranty policy.
While each vehicle on the road has its own manufactures recommended service schedule, staying up to date with yours is essential to maintain your vehicles peak performance level. At NextGen Automotive Service & Repair, LLC. you can expect to receive high quality parts and fluids backed by certified technicians performing your service.

WHEELS & SUSPENSION
Among routine vehicle maintenance items, wheel alignment may be the most misunderstood. After all, aren’t a car’s or truck’s wheels already “aligned” at the factory? Why should a vehicle owner need to worry about alignment at all?
Modern suspension systems offer certain adjustments to allow for such variables as manufacturing tolerances, wear, changes in tires, and even accidents. But wherever there’s an adjustment it’s possible for parts to wear over time or to slip a little bit (particularly when bumped hard), resulting in misalignment. Also, any time something related to the suspension changes, as when a new set of tires are installed, alignment can change as a result. Periodically checking and adjusting the alignment is a necessary part of keeping every vehicle running safely and economically.
To understand why periodic alignment is important, it’s helpful to know a bit about what aspects of alignment can be adjusted.
The major alignment adjustments are:
Toe: While tires should face almost directly forward, sometimes slight deviations from that are used to help the vehicle track straight even on rough or crowned roads; these deviations from straight forward are called toe. Excessive toe (inward or outward) dramatically increases tire wear and can decrease fuel economy because the tires rub against the road instead of merely rolling, and large deviations from proper toe settings can make a vehicle difficult to control.
Camber: The extent to which tires are tilted toward or away from the center of the vehicle, when viewed from the front or rear, is called camber. If the tires are exactly vertical (0° of camber) then acceleration and braking performance are maximized, while a slight tilt of the tops of the tires toward the inside (called negative camber) can help handling because it compensates for the forces incurred during cornering. When camber is even a little bit too great (positive or negative), tire wear increases greatly because one edge of the tire takes all the load; when camber is badly misadjusted, safety becomes an issue as braking performance suffers.
Caster: Caster, which is usually adjustable only on the front tires, is the difference between where a tire touches the road and the point at which it pivots when turned. Picture the front wheels of a shopping cart, which automatically align themselves when the vehicle is pushed forward, to understand why this can be important. Correct caster settings help the vehicle track straight; incorrect settings can make the vehicle unstable or difficult to turn.
There’s a common theme to all three adjustments: when they’re set right, the vehicle performs well, but even a small deviation from the correct settings can increase tire wear, reduce fuel economy, and render the vehicle difficult or even unsafe to drive. Thus, driving a car, truck, or utility vehicle whose suspension is misaligned costs money (in extra tire and fuel costs) and can be unpleasant or even hazardous.
