Today, car manufacturers include at least one computer in motor vehicles. This computer's main function is to monitor and adjust engine and transmission operations. The computer receives input information from different sensors. The computer controls spark plugs, idle speed, and fuel injectors so as to get you the best possible car performance. Failure of the car computer will greatly affect the things it controls. To get the most out of your car's computer, have it evaluated regularly for updates and proper operation. If it is already failing, have it repaired or replaced. To have your car's computer handled by experts, visit Thomsons Auto Repair Inc. in Kentwood, MI 49508 today.
Thomsons Auto Repair Inc. has state-of-the-art equipment to provide computer reflashing to our customers in the Kentwood area. The primary reason to reflash a computer (which basically means updating or reinstalling its software) is that an update has been issued by the manufacturer. It's a very simple procedure, and there may be minor updates that the car hasn't had. The manufacturer may have tweaked the transmission-shifting algorithm or some other parameters that are not crucial but may bring slight improvements to drivability, mileage or emissions. Since auto manufacturers are coming out with automobile updates every day, there may be a reprogram available for your vehicle. Stop by Thomsons Auto Repair Inc. or call us at 616-281-5150 to schedule an appointment!
Drivability is the degree of smoothness and steadiness of your car's acceleration. Most modern cars are fitted with on-board computers that continuously check the readings from various sensors. In case of drivability problems, you will receive a warning message on your car's dashboard. To have your car diagnosed for drivability issues, visit Thomsons Auto Repair Inc. in Kentwood, MI 49508 today. At Thomsons Auto Repair Inc., we have the necessary tools, training, and technology to diagnose and address your car's drivability issues.
Basically, an engine control system is an on-board computer in your car. Like all computers, the engine controls are composed of hardware and software. Automotive engine control systems are responsible for regulating exhaust emissions, and providing increased fuel economy. To get the best out of your car's incredibly powerful technology, make sure engine controls are working properly. To check if your car's engine controls are working properly, call Thomsons Auto Repair Inc. today.
Great customer service, always making sure customers are satisfied. They take time to show and explain the repairs. Very down to earth family oriented. Definitely NOT your typical auto shop. Clean bathroom, and beautiful, nice option for snacks or drink and free fresh popcorn while you wait!
If I could give more than 5 stars I would. These guys are absolutely great!! They do not nickel and dime you, and they are very honest with their work and recommendations. Had some exhaust work done, and I thought it would take them 3-4 days, judging by how many cars were in the parking lot...nope...done the next day in the afternoon. I was very impressed...price was as quoted with no additional "surprises" in the repair...I found my forever repair place...Thanks to all at Thomson's!!!
I took my 2009 Jeep Wrangler into Thomson's, with a whole shopping list of things that went wrong with the vehicle. Shawn and his team worked tirelessly to make sure that my vehicle was fixed properly and quickly, to accommodate my timelines. The customer service was outstanding, and their knowledge behind their work is even better. I could not be more satisfied with the work they have done, and I would recommend them before any other shop around!
They're always very helpful and very knowledgeable. The prices are reasonable and they're very friendly. They also always explain exactly what's wrong with your car or what they have to do. I would recommend them to anyone.
Thomson's is amazing! Very, very trustworthy. Repairs are always done right, and always done in an excellent amount of time. The prices are always good, and they are ALWAYS willing to talk you through the repairs needed. I would highly recommend Thomson's for all your automotive repair!
These guys are GREAT!!!!! Even got my car back the next day, problem fixed!!! Very pleased!!!
They're honest and get the work done when they tell you it will be done. Toyota had issues and I was able to get car fixed at more reasonable price than dealership and get on road faster!!!!
My wife and I have heard a lot of positive remarks about Thomsons auto repair. I just took my Windstar in for a few repairs and I am pleased with the results. Their price is reasonable and the staff are very informative and friendly. We have further repairs to be done on our vehicles and you can bet we will be taking our vehicles to Thomsons for repairs in the future. I would recommend Thomsons Auto Repairs to everyone we know.
