The technicians at Hall's Automotive have years of experience working on standard 4-wheel drive (4x4) vehicles as well as all-wheel drive (AWD) vehicles. AWD is a full-time 4-wheel-drive system (all four wheels receive torque from the engine simultaneously) that employs a center differential that allows each tire to rotate at different speeds.
We understand the special needs of these vehicles. These are some of the services we offer.
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 Hall's Automotive.
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 Hall's Automotive today for differentials examination and servicing.
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 Hall's Automotive, you can have the driveline serviced by experts.
Hubs, Seals, Studs, & Nuts
A wheel hub motor, also referred to as a wheel motor, is an electric motor incorporated into the wheel hub and drives it directly. You can have a safer and smoother ride today by replacing your warped and worn out wheel hubs. Let Hall's Automotive replace your worn out hubs today.
Properly working seals provide oil and grease sealing - offering enhanced performance in a wide range of temperatures and environments. Worn out or warped seals allow external contaminants to enter the bearing unit or let lubricant escape from the unit. This ultimately leads to premature failure of the bearing unit. To keep out contamination and retain lubricant in the bearings, have the seals replaced with new ones. To have the seals replaced by experts, contact or visit Hall's Automotive today.
Studs are the threaded fasteners that hold on the wheels of your truck. The wheel studs are permanently mounted on the wheel hub through the brake disk or brake drum. To secure the wheel, nuts (lug nuts) are fastened over the stud. Stripped wheel studs can be quite dangerous. Damaged wheel studs should be replaced with new ones immediately. To have your truck's wheel studs replaced with high quality ones, call 520-790-1885 or visit Hall's Automotive today.
A wheel nut or lug nut is a fastener for securing a wheel on the hub. A set of lug nuts are used to secure a wheel to the threaded wheel studs (which are fixed to a wheel hub). Worn out nuts means one thing - the wheel is not fixed securely on the vehicle which puts the vehicle at the risk of rolling over. To have your truck's wheels securely fastened to the hub, contact or visit Hall's Automotive in Tucson, AZ 85714 today.
A transfer case is a part of a four wheel drive system found in four wheel drive and all wheel drive vehicles. The transfer case receives power from the transmission and sends it to both the front and rear axles. This can be done with a set of gears, but the majority of transfer cases manufactured today are chain driven. The transfer case is connected to the transmission and also to the front and rear axles by means of drive shafts. Trust the automotive experts at Hall's Automotive for all your transmission repairs.
Transmission repair is not something to take lightly. The transmission is connected to key parts of your vehicle and needs to be working properly for your safety. Transmission services include replacing filters and draining fluids to prevent transmission damage. Typical transmission issues that may lead to repair may include shifting issues, slipping, stalling, fluid leaking, and the service light turning on. If you are concerned that you may need transmission repair, don't hesitate to schedule an appointment at Hall's Automotive today.
Wheel bearings are found inside of wheels, allowing the wheels to spin freely, and are connected to the brake system. They can become worn over time, causing a vibrating suspension and noisy rubbing as the car is driven. If they break completely, the vehicle will become very difficult to control and unsafe to drive. Replacement interval for wheel bearings varies greatly, but they should be checked for leaks and wear periodically. Hall's Automotive can make sure that your bearings are in good shape and let you know if they need replacement.
Larry is the most honest,trustworthy, knowledge mechanic in Tucson and is always fair on price! If you've been looking for a mechanic give him a try you won't be disappointed!!!!
Very good shop. Nice people. And they do good work FAST, even though they were super busy they got me in and out of there. Larry's shop, Halls automotive, is hidden away in the cut but I would definitely use this shop again. I recommend that my people with car trouble now or in the future check them out.
At Halls Automotive you can trust not only the quality parts, but also the prompt service they give. My family as well as myself have trusted Halls with Our vehicles and Our lives for over 15 years. Julie, Larry's Daughter is very professional and will handle help you with most questions. Thanks, Larry, Julie, and Joe for all you do for Tucson!!!
I brought in my 2000 Volvo v40 and they knew exactly what to do with it. They fixed it up in no time and it was excellent customer service and kept me updated. Highly recommend this shop they did a fantastic job at fixing my problems on the car!!!
I've taken my truck to them a couple of times now and have had a really good experience. They're very responsible with the price, they have many years of experience and are very professional. I will be a lifetime customer.
WOW. MY TRUCK RUNS SO WELL! The service was excellent! I was preparing my truck for my 16 year old and wanted her to drive a problem free vehicle. I was lazy and didn't maintain my truck very well. Hall's Automotive did so good at fixing it up that I have them do all my work now. You will get a fair price. You won't be sorry.
Where to start, I came to Larry with a nightmare of a project. I need a complete engine rebuild, clutch, steering rack, transfer case, rotors, brakes pretty much if was on the car it needed to be replaced. The car had sat for two years and basically was a shell of broken dreams. Larry and his incredibly friendly and efficient staff too the project and quoted me a time and date sure enough they delivered. This job was not for the feint-of-heart. Hall's Automotive definitely made a life time customer and will have my business from now on. I HIGHLY recommend this shop from projects large to small.
Honest, kind mechanic. Trustworthy and decent with appropriate prices. Not the cheapest but someone you can use again and again.
I definitely recommend this shop. Great service! I was able to get an appointment right away, they fixed my car in one day, and with a great price.
I was referred to Larry by the shop (BrakeMax on Pantano) that I take my mid 60's Corvette to for oil changes. I needed help with tune-up and minor repair work. Finding a auto repair shop that works on old cars isn't easy. Larry took care of all the issues the old car had, as well as giving the old car a mechanical look over. I highly recommend Hall's Auto for your car needs.
I would recommend Halls automotive to everyone. Larry did such an amazing job fixing the engine of my truck and at such a reasonable price too. I only go to Halls, even for simple maintenance checkups.
While passing through Tucson, my car (a 2003 Crown Vic) began making a horrible noise that made me halt my trip home to the Northwest in fear of breaking down in the desert. After explaining all that, Larry agreed to see me as soon as I came in. We hopped in the car and he diagnosed the issue immediately and had me ready to go promptly. I didn't actually need a repair (non-essential ac component I didn't care about in my hurried trip home) and he let me go FOR FREE with peace of mind after explaining everything in great detail. I suppose my only complaint is that I can't find such an honest mechanic in Oregon. I only hope that you, the review reader decide to trust halls with your repairs.
Was passing through Tuscon on way to San Diego and my axle bearing broke. I googled a mechanic near me. Called Halls automotive and Larry was able to provide a little bit of insight on what to do. He even suggest a tow company in which he trusts. The tow was very reasonable. Once the car got it into his shop he was able to take a look at it, give me an estimate and fixed within a day and a half. Larry even updated me on what exactly he was doing and why. One of his mechanics even gave me and my 3 year old a ride to the hotel. Larry didn't just "FIX" the broken part (which I think the last mechanic did) he brought parts in from different places and chose the best one for my dollar. After everything was fixed, Larry assured me i wouldn't have this problem again. I 100% trust he did a amazing job and in a reasonable amount of time also. Thank you Halls Automotive!
