- Road tested and verified the concern. Inspected the front steering and suspension components – found the left front lower ball joint to have excessive movement – this is a safety concern.

Inspected wiper blades, washer fluid, horn and mirrors. Inspected belts and hoses and air filter. – found the engine air filter getting dirty – recommend replacing the filter next service Tested antifreeze protection – good to – 40°F and Ph level good at this time.
