Of all parts and systems involved in a drivable vehicle, brakes need to be the number one highest priority. “Go” is great, but “Stop” is way more important. If your brakes are worn, screeching and screaming is a strong sign that they need attention. Feeling shaking or wobbling when braking are indicators as well. The need for sudden stops in traffic, or a surprise deer encounter are a couple of examples of why good reliable braking is crucial. They need to be in good working order in that unexpected moment. It’s never a good idea to put off needed repairs when it comes to your brakes. It’s not worth risking anyone’s safety, or needing costly accident repairs. Octane Garage will inspect your #brakes and if needed, replace them, usually same day. Just call Octane Garage for an appointment at (732)509-9911. OCTANEGARAGENJ.com

If COVID19 has affected your travel habits, like working from home, utilizing shopping delivery services, or avoiding usual visits or vacations, it’s possible your car may need some attention to keep it in sound mechanical condition. Some of the more common issues encountered with extended sitting are dead batteries, rusty brakes, even mice. Yes, mice! Here at Octane Garage we have seen several cases over the last year. They make their nests in hidden, inaccessible places and apparently they enjoy chewing on wires. So good advice is to keep up driving your car regularly, even short trips on the weekends can avoid some of the problems that can occur from sitting idle for too long. If you have a case of “CARVID”, need some regular maintenance or just a checkup call Octane Garage for an appointment at (732)509-9911. Stay safe!
CARVID - (kar-vid) / noun, slang:
A condition experienced by vehicles which have been sitting idle for extended periods of time due to COVID19. Vehicle problems developing from lack of regular use due to the pandemic’s changes to travel and commuting habits.

Octane Garage invites you to let us know how we’re doing, what do you like about us, what would you like us to change? We’re listening, but more importantly so is the public. Every review on any platform is valuable to us and we thank you in advance if you’ll take the time to write a few kind words, simply a “Like” on our Facebook page can help someone in making their choice. The age of electronics has changed the way small businesses get their names out there to the public. Small Repair shops rely heavily on recommendations and reviews when it comes to growing their business. Having a recommendation is a tremendous help in finding a reputable Auto Repair Shop, without one the feedback provided by local strangers can be very helpful. When the public shares their personal experiences in the form of reviews on various social media sites it can provide some insightful information, both positive and negative. When trust is important a little homework in advance, like reading customer reviews, can help find what you’re looking for. Stay safe, and if you need an appointment call Octane Garage at (732)509-9911.

Sometimes repair shops that are highly visible and accessible aren’t necessarily the best choice if your car needs work. Along with great location comes relatively high overhead, so all the cool signs, flags, banners and other attention grabbing gimmicks are costs that inevitably are passed on to the customer. With our location being off the main roads and without the high visibility a different approach is required. We don’t have nearly the same flow of traffic as some repair shops so we are the ones who try harder. Most of our customers have been recommended to us by other customers, their friends and their families because trust is rare and highly valued, especially in the auto repair industry. Unfortunately it’s not always easy to find. We keep the quality of the work high and the frills to a minimum to keep prices reasonable and our customers happy. Stay safe, and call if you need us at (732)509-9911.
