Suspension & Steering

You might not think that your car steering can fail. However, today’s modern power steering is computer controlled to provide effortless control over your car and can sometimes stop working or cause issues.

Balance, stability and smoothness – they’re what ensure a comfortable ride for you and your passengers, and your car’s steering and suspension are what makes this possible.

If your vehicle’s steering and suspension aren’t working correctly, you’re in for a bumpy ride. At the first sign of your car driving differently or trouble turning around corners, then there are likely issues with steering or suspension. Signs of a faltering steering and suspension system include:

  • Noise when driving over bumps

  • Vehicle bouncing

  • Hard turning

  • Uneven tire wear

  • Wandering wheels

    CUSTOMER TESTIMONIALS

    I was down the peninsula visiting family when my car wouldn’t start one evening. Chris from Port Phillip Automotive came and checked out the car within 20 minutes, found the problem quickly and the next day had fixed it for me. Fast, reliable and great service Daniel Kouvaras
    Have been through many different mechanics over the years. Chris and Port Phillip Automotive have been the best by far. An honest company that cares about their customers and always does a great job. Will definitely continue to use their services. Kevin Sharpe
    My Nissan Patrol kept having engine check light come on and it would constantly go into limp mode. The car had logged several codes and Nissan told me that the car would cost approx $6000 to repair. I got a second opinion through Chris, and within 3-4 minutes he found my supposed $6000 issue, it turns it out was a loose fuel line and it was a simple fix with a $1 hose clamp. Very happy with the outcome! Truckie 86
    Chris has helped me with my car many times before, always quick to figure out any problems, honest and upfront with pricing and what it will take to get things fixed up. Always good to know you can call him and get any issues sorted out quickly and get back on the road. Thanks mate Lochie Sheridan
