Comprehensive 4x4 and All-Wheel Drive Vehicle Services
When it comes to maintaining your standard 4-wheel drive (4x4) and all-wheel drive (AWD) vehicles, the skilled technicians at Victor Auto Body Works possess years of experience and specialized knowledge.
AWD systems operate as full-time 4-wheel-drive setups, where all four wheels receive torque from the engine simultaneously. These intricate systems require unique attention, and we're here to cater to their distinct needs. Below are some of the services we offer:
Wheel alignment is a fundamental aspect of vehicle maintenance that entails adjusting the angles of the wheels to match the manufacturer's specifications. This process allows for the proper operation of the suspension and steering systems, reducing tire wear. Our experts excel in this complex procedure, ensuring precision alignment for your vehicle.
Is there a difference between four-wheel drive and all-wheel drive?Both all-wheel drive (AWD) and four-wheel drive (4WD) engage all four wheels, but with a twist. AWD uses three differentials (front, rear, and center) for continuous power distribution, making it ideal for everyday driving with improved traction. 4WD typically uses two differentials and can be switched between two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive modes, offering more control for off-road adventures.
Are 4x4 vehicles meant just for off-road driving?While off-roading is their specialty, 4x4s aren't just for outdoor enthusiasts. Their enhanced grip and stability tackle slippery city streets and uneven landscapes with ease, offering peace of mind for families, outdoor enthusiasts, and anyone who values dependable performance in diverse conditions.
Is running a four-wheel drive expensive?Four-wheel drive fuel economy and maintenance might seem daunting, but it's a nuanced picture. Frequent off-road adventures and towing will impact costs differently than city commutes. Analyze your driving habits and needs before comparing 4x4 and 2 wheel drive costs.

Absolute gem of a shop. People are friendly and let me take my dog in the lobby to wait. They really save me when my van was out of service. They were recommended by an employee in advanced auto and I'd do the same to anyone else.
