Sport Utility Vehicles Service & Repairs in San Jose

SUV Service Repairs

Keep Your Family Safe on the Roads of San Jose

Modern sport utility vehicles (SUV) were originally based off of military vehicles used for reconnaissance and transport in areas with rugged terrain and rough roads. At the end of World War II, tens of thousands of GIs purchased the new civilian model Jeeps, beginning with the CJ-1. Over the years, many other models of SUV achieve a certain level of popularity, such as the Jeep Wagoneer, the International Scout, the Ford Bronco and the Toyota Landcruiser. It was not until the mid-1990s, however, that the SUV became a common sight in San Jose and the rest of the country. Today, approximately one in three new vehicles sold is an SUV.

Most people who own SUVs do not use them as sport utility vehicles, but rather drive them on the commute to and from work, to transport their children, and to carry out the routine errands that are required in daily life. Even though you may not be taking your SUV off-roading like you see in the television commercials, it is still important to ensure that the vehicle is in working order at all times and is safe to drive. Even a relatively small malfunction or breakdown could lead to costly repairs or potentially even cause an accident.

Why are SUV repairs more expensive?

Sport utility vehicle repair can be more expensive than working on other types of automobiles and trucks. For one thing, there is a general rule that the bigger the vehicle, the more costly the parts will be. For another thing, the systems used in SUVs are often highly complex, requiring specialized knowledge and skill on the part of the mechanic. Wheel alignments, for example, are often more difficult given the fact that the SUV rides on a four-wheel drive. At Ross Truck and Equipment Repair, we have years of experience working on SUVs for customers in San Jose and throughout Santa Clara County.
