Wheel Balance

Wheel balance is one of those auto repairs we just don’t think that much about… until your steering wheel starts to shake and shimmy over the roads of Kauai, and then it’s time to take the car into the auto mechanics at Kauai Auto Repair LLC in Lihue for some expert auto repair. When your car’s wheels get out of balance, they can cause the whole vehicle to perform poorly. Wheel balance is a relatively simple auto repair, but that doesn’t mean that it should be performed by anything less than an expert auto mechanic.

The owner of Kauai Auto Repair LLC, Angel Santiago III, is a native of Kauai and has been in love with the auto repair industry since he was in high school. He founded Kauai Auto Repair, LLC in 2002 with the goal of providing the best auto repair and customer experience in Lihue and all of Kauai. Angel’s guiding principles are to perform the best auto repair services, wheel balancing included, possible while putting a smile on his customer’s faces.

Just check out the smile behind the words in this recent 5-star review posted by a happy customer:

“I have a 16-year-old Jeep with 115,000 miles on the odometer. The exterior and interior are in excellent condition……the drive train has taken a beating over the years. I was losing coolant, engine was overheating in the mountains and my oil pressure gauge was stuck on stupid. Diagnosis was bad head gasket but upon further inspection my cylinder head was cracked, my radiator leaked and my freeze plugs were pitted, rusted and perforated. As work on this progressed, it was discovered I also had a transfer case leak, bad rear brakes and a front end that was overdue for replacement. Time, miles and Kaua’i salt will create havoc with vehicles.My Jeep is now restored, leak free, smooth riding and safe, to resume off roading in Koke’e. Thank you Mark (mechanic), Riley the wild mountain biker office manager and customer service manager, and Angel III, the owner and operator of Kaua’i Auto Repair…….the cleanest and organized shop on the island. They’ve got my trust and I highly recommend this business to service any vehicle.Cheap service is not good, and good service is not cheap. These guys are fair, reasonably priced and hard working good guys. I also need to give kudos to Angel II, the father that greets you, does safety inspections, always smiles and waves goodbye. Keep up the good work guys, you’ve got a great shop.” — Mark T.
