Undercar Services: Maintenance & Repair

JayBees Auto Service approaches caring for your car or truck from the ground up. That means that before we look over the internal components of your ride we take time to make sure that you're working with a solid foundation. Our comprehensive undercar inspections and services cover an important area of your car that can easily be neglected and give the foundation of your vehicle the care and attention it deserves.

Avoid disaster by coming in and having your undercarriage checked out today. Call us at 520-790-6035 or visit us in Tucson, AZ so we can schedule an appointment to ensure your car is in tip-top shape!

Our competitively priced undercar services include:

Alignment
Wheel alignment (or simply alignment) is standard car maintenance that involves adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the manufacturer's specifications. The main purpose is to let the suspension and the steering systems operate at their desired angles - this reduces tire wear. Alignment is a complicated process and not all mechanics get it right. To have experts handle your car's alignment, visit JayBees Auto Service.

Anti-Lock Brakes
Anti-lock brakes prevent wheel lock-up when rapidly decelerating by automatically modulating the brake pressure during an emergency stop. With this system, the wheels are able to maintain traction with the road while braking. Failure of the anti-lock brakes could lead to an increase in the risks of multiple vehicle crashes and run-off road crashes. To avoid this, have your anti-lock brake system checked and repaired by experts. At JayBees Auto Service, we have anti-lock brake experts who will examine and repair your faulty ABS - keeping you safe.

Brakes
A brake is a mechanical device for slowing or stopping a vehicle (usually by means of friction). In short, a brake inhibits your car's motion. It lets you stop the car whenever and wherever you choose. Brakes are one of the most important parts of a motor vehicle. Without them, you would not be able to stop the car. If your vehicle's brakes are having issues, consider having them worked on. Brake experts at JayBees Auto Service can work on your car's brakes to ensure you have a safe drive.

Brake System Flush
Brake fluid is hygroscopic (it absorbs moisture). The absorbed moisture lowers the fluid's boiling point. It also corrodes the lines and cylinders. With the lowered boiling point, the brake fluid could boil during braking which makes you lose braking ability. Although this is an extreme scenario, it does happen in heavy braking. To reduce the effects of the absorbed moisture, auto manufacturers recommend that you have a brake flush done periodically. A brake system flush involves the replacement of used and contaminated fluid with fresh fluid. With JayBees Auto Service's quick lube services, you will have a brake system flush performed by brake experts. Call 520-790-6035 or visit JayBees Auto Service today.

Chassis
A chassis is the car's internal framework that supports the body and other parts like the wheels, engine, transmission, driveshaft, differential, and suspension. A weak or damaged chassis will translate to a weak car. To have a strong and properly working vehicle, have your car's chassis checked for defects. At JayBees Auto Service, there are experienced undercar service providers who can work on your chassis.

Differentials
The differential transfers the engine power to the wheels. One important function of the differential is to pass on power to the wheels while allowing them to rotate at different speeds - thus the name differential. When turning, the outer wheels travel a larger distance than the inner wheels do (also the front wheels travel a longer distance than the rear wheels). This means that all four wheels travel at different speeds during a turn and this is where the differential comes in to help. To make sure your vehicle's differentials are working properly, have them checked regularly. Contact JayBees Auto Service today for differentials examination and servicing.

Differential Flush
The differential is a car part that compensates for the difference in travel distance between the inner wheels and outer wheels when the vehicle is turning. Due to the differential's position in most non-four-wheel-drive (FWD) vehicles (located at the rear and under the car), it does not get any of the star treatment the engine gets. The one thing that every car owner needs to know is that failure of the differential will mean failure of the car. To save the differential from failure, you need to have differential fluid changed every 30,000 to 50,000 miles. Changing the oil on the differential is as important as changing the car's engine oil. Although checking and changing differential oil is pretty easy, you need to visit an auto shop to get a comprehensive differential flush. For differential flush services, visit or call JayBees Auto Service in Tucson, AZ 85711 today.

Exhaust
In a motor vehicle, an exhaust system is a piping used to guide exhaust fumes away from the engine - usually to the rear of the vehicle. A properly functioning exhaust system not only sounds better, it is better - for you, your car, and the environment. JayBees Auto Service has expert technicians to service your car's exhaust system.

Driveline
A driveline is a part of your motor vehicle that connects the engine and the transmission to the wheel axles. The driveline consists of the parts of the powertrain less the engine and transmission. Failure of the driveline means that the car would not move since energy cannot be transmitted from the engine to the wheel axles. Therefore, make sure that your car's driveline is regularly inspected and serviced. And, at JayBees Auto Service, you can have the driveline serviced by experts.

Tires
As tires get older, they lose traction and deteriorate from the inside out, increasing the likelihood of a tire bursting. This can cause a rapid loss of control of your vehicle. To have a better performing vehicle, you need to make sure the tires are in good condition. For all your tire needs, contact JayBees Auto Service today.

Shocks
Shocks (or shock absorbers) are mechanical devices designed to smooth out rough roads. The devices do this by converting kinetic energy to another form of energy. Properly working shocks reduce the effect of traveling over rough ground, leading to improved ride quality and vehicle handling. When shocks develop problems, driving on poorly leveled roads becomes unpleasant, and your vehicle may sway when turning. To have your vehicle's shocks diagnosed and repaired, visit JayBees Auto Service today.

Struts
Much like a shock absorber (shocks), your car's struts provide a dampening effect as you travel over a road's surface. By absorbing the shock of the road, struts allow passengers to ride in a car without constant and uncomfortable motion. Struts work a bit differently than shocks in that they provide structural support for your car's suspension. This means that struts support your car's weight, unlike shocks which only regulate the speed at which the weight is transferred. Struts usually last around 50,000 or 60,000 miles. This is simply because the damping characteristics of the parts gradually deteriorate over time. Call JayBees Auto Service at 520-790-6035 if you have questions about the struts on your car. Our expert technicians will diagnose any problems and help you make an informed decision about repairs.


What Our Customers Are Saying

My family has been going to JayBees for decades (yes, decades), and we trust them implicitly. (Woman owned and operated if that makes a difference to you.)


-Jonathan F.

Great people here...!!! With the best customer service. Always a pleasure seeing them.


-Peggy R.

The people at JayBees are incredibly helpful and honest. As a woman, I'm used to being talked down to because it's assumed I won't understand. Shelly specifically always makes sure I understand the problems and the options for repair. They also have a courtesy shuttle so I can get a ride to my friend's house and don't have to pay for another ride option. I will never go anywhere else to get my car fixed.


-Sara T.

Love JayBees! Honest and reliable. Highly recommend.


-Michele T.

Shelly, Jacqui, and Doug....you're the BEST!!


-Eddie C.

Skilled mechanics, courteous.


-Thom M.

Jacqui and Doug are both amazing. Most trustworthy auto mechanic I've found. Time and time again they prove this to me.


-Joe F.

The people I've had contact with are very friendly, and my husband trusts their work.


-Lynn C.

Great service and honest prices.


-Quinny M.

Fair prices, and they do the little extra things to make sure your car or truck is fixed and safe.


-Bill G.

Great service and an amazing staff. They very patiently walked me through the steps they took to diagnose, troubleshoot and resolve my car's issues.


-Todd M.

Very happy. Came in for oil change. They checked over the whole vehicle for me and found a couple of minor repairs needed so I had them do a couple of them, and will return for the others in the near future. My second visit to them. Last fall they repaired a faulty engine control computer for me, but this was a difficult undertaking because Chrysler-Fiat (Dodge Owners) don't make that computer anymore. They found a company back east that remanufactures old out-of-production car computers and got the job done.


-Ken

My car wouldn't start and had to be towed to JayBees. I feared it was something like an alternator or battery problem but was surprised to learn it was a defective key. The courteous and knowledgeable staff always make me feel I am in good hands. Everyone I have referred to JayBees has thanked me. Wow, 30 years in the business. That says a lot.


-Patty D.

Jacqui and Shelly are such experts with car service, and I trust them completely. They have proven to go above and beyond to explain their findings about the work needed and not needed for my car. I am so appreciative of all of their time and effort to explain and assess everything for me. They are honest, do quality work, and are reliable - what more do you need?


-Michele J.

I love JayBees! The staff is so friendly and honest. I always feel comfortable spending money on the repairs that they recommend, because I know that they have my best interest in mind. We had quite a few repairs this visit and Shelly went through every single thing with me to make sure that I knew what I was paying for. I am super happy with the work. Thank you!


-Amy C.

Very thorough and honest place. Will be the place we are going to in Tucson for any problems with our cars from now on.


-Terry & Thomas

Routine oil change and recommended maintenance items. Friendly and knowledgeable staff and technicians. To be in business 30+ years means they are doing things RIGHT. Everyone I have referred to Jaybees has thanked me.


-Patrice P.

Replaced the broken driver's inside door handle, plus had an oil change/service & vehicle inspection/evaluation. Have gone to JayBees for years. Excellent service. Ultra-competent. Super honest. Really good people to do business with!


-J L

The personnel and mechanics at JayBees are very efficient and work in a timely manner. I was able to get an oil change and have the car travel-ready within a matter of hours. The mechanics are very thorough and check all the little details to make the car roadworthy. If they find a detail that needs extra work, they immediately contact you to let you know and have you give them the okay. I appreciate this extra effort.


-Judith S.

JayBees is always friendly, courteous and they do an excellent job. I've been going to them for 25 years, and I don?t trust anyone else.


-Cindy F.

Jacqui and Shelly and all the people here are awesome. I'd never go anywhere else.


-Anita R.

We were recommended to JayBees by some friends, and we were not disappointed. Not only did they expertly repair the problem, but they also gave the vehicle an overall service inspection at no extra charge. Their mechanics gave us several recommendations for future service needs, but no one pressured us into having things fixed right then and there. We will definitely take our vehicles back to JayBees for maintenance and repairs.


-Nancy B.

By taking the wife's Murano to JayBees instead of the dealer, we saved well over $1000.00 in parts. They fixed the electric system and also got the electric motor to work, which we had been quoted almost a thousand dollars parts and labor. Plus the fix on the electric system that had caused the car not to start saved us another several hundred. Plus they treated my wife like a person instead of like a dummy and making her call and ask her husband. They explained and showed her what was needed to be done.


-Bill G.

Great central location. Good people who want the best for your automobile!


-TK H.

Completely trust JayBees. They have serviced my car many times and have even left with no bill two times! Turns out it was not an issue, and they never tried to pull anything on me. Great customer service, knowledgeable and have a really cute office cat.


-Kelly Anne M.

This is a shop that has a passion to fix the root problem, not simply pull things off and replace them until they happen upon a solution. Don't hesitate to take your car to JayBees. I had been to three shops, spent thousands of dollars on repairs, and the folks at JayBees sorted through all the potential issues and solved the problem. I have a lot of confidence in their work.


-Byron B.

If you need your car repaired use JayBees. Their staff is friendly and treated me well. When you need a repair done quickly AND fixed right the first time, they are the shop to use. I love that they have women in their shop who actually know cars and how to explain my situation to me.
