|Front wheel drive, the name connotes a pulling, forward motion, is a vehicle that is propelled by its front wheels rather than being pushed by its rear wheels. While this has distinct advantages in traction, it creates unique wear situations that required proper maintenance and repair.
The advantages are by avoiding the need for a driveshaft connecting the engine in front with the rear wheels, front-drive cars save space. The entire drivetrain can be packed into a neat compartment in the front, leaving the rest of the vehicles volume for passengers and cargo.
Front-drive vehicles have better traction in slippery conditions, in part because the weight of the engine is on top of the wheels that are providing the power.

The major disadvantage when repair time arrives are the packed working space that often requires special tools just to take the transmission and related parts out to work on. It is the job for the professional and his tools. Since the front brakes and tires handle 75% of a vehicle's braking, more frequent brake and tire inspections are recommended also.
Whatever the make of your vehicle we can rebuild your frontwheel drive transmission. Years of experience and access to almost every part known to exist gives us the advantage when you need service.
