Hyundai Brake Service in San Carlos, CA

Regular brake service is vital to your safety. Your Hyundai will need multiple brake service visits during its lifetime. At Toole’s Garage in San Carlos we offer full range of Hyundai maintenance services and repairs, including Hyundai brake service. The most frequent brake service is brake pads replacement. Your vehicle slows down because calipers press the brake pads against rotors, creating friction that slows down the vehicle.

Hyundai Battery Replacement in San Carlos, CA

One of the recurring services your Hyundai will need is battery replacement. Most car batteries last about 4-5 years. Over time the battery will weaken until replacement will become a necessity. At Toole’s Garage in San Carlos we offer wide range of Hyundai services, and battery replacement is one we perform regularly. Before we would replace a battery, though, we will test it to make sure it can still hold a charge. Sometimes what appears to be a dead battery is really some other problem – failing alternator, or a parasitic electrical drain.

Here are the symptoms that indi ... read more

Hyundai to Expand EV Production

According to ABC News, Hyundai has started construction of a huge electric vehicle factory in Georgia. When completed in 2025, the plant will first produce EV vehicles, and in 2026 it may also produce EV batteries. Hyundai is already second in EV sales in the United States, Tesla being number one, of course. This new Hyundai factory will produce 300,000 EV vehicles per year. In the meantime, Hyundai is also continuing its research on hydrogen fuel-cell powered vehicles.
