Today, car manufacturers include at least one computer in motor vehicles. This computer's main function is to monitor and adjust engine and transmission operations. The computer receives input information from different sensors. The computer controls spark plugs, idle speed, and fuel injectors so as to get you the best possible car performance. Failure of the car computer will greatly affect the things it controls. To get the most out of your car's computer, have it evaluated regularly for updates and proper operation. If it is already failing, have it repaired or replaced. To have your car's computer handled by experts, visit Cascade Automotive Service in Grand Rapids, MI 49546 today.
Cascade Automotive Service has state-of-the-art equipment to provide computer reflashing to our customers in the Grand Rapids area. The primary reason to reflash a computer (which basically means updating or reinstalling its software) is that an update has been issued by the manufacturer. It's a very simple procedure, and there may be minor updates that the car hasn't had. The manufacturer may have tweaked the transmission-shifting algorithm or some other parameters that are not crucial but may bring slight improvements to drivability, mileage or emissions. Since auto manufacturers are coming out with automobile updates every day, there may be a reprogram available for your vehicle. Stop by Cascade Automotive Service or call us at 616-957-0841 to schedule an appointment!

Drivability is the degree of smoothness and steadiness of your car's acceleration. Most modern cars are fitted with on-board computers that continuously check the readings from various sensors. In case of drivability problems, you will receive a warning message on your car's dashboard. To have your car diagnosed for drivability issues, visit Cascade Automotive Service in Grand Rapids, MI 49546 today. At Cascade Automotive Service, we have the necessary tools, training, and technology to diagnose and address your car's drivability issues.
Basically, an engine control system is an on-board computer in your car. Like all computers, the engine controls are composed of hardware and software. Automotive engine control systems are responsible for regulating exhaust emissions, and providing increased fuel economy. To get the best out of your car's incredibly powerful technology, make sure engine controls are working properly. To check if your car's engine controls are working properly, call Cascade Automotive Service today.

I've had several cars serviced by Cascade Auto Services. They do a great job at a fair price. Perhaps more importantly, they are have shown the utmost integrity in working on my vehicles.
Jeff and his guys do a wonderful job of providing service and explaining the process behind what they are doing and why it needs to be done. I highly recommend Cascade Automotive Service!
Since moving to the Grand Rapids area I went from repair shop to repair shop looking for a place that did great work and had fair prices. Went a decade before finding Cascade Automotive and now that is where I take my vehicles. They accurately diagnose the issues, fix things right, all at the reasonable price. I trust Cascade Automotive.
Cascade Automotive has always given us top notch service on all of our vehicles! And much better pricing than dealerships. Also love that it’s close to home and can walk home after dropping off my vehicle. Very reliable service, they have our trust!
Great service at Cascade Automotive Service. They are very efficient. This was appreciated greatly. A sense of urgency when you don't have a car is very nice. They explain in detail what needs to be fixed get the job done right. They also open at 7:30 which is nice for early drop offs before work. I would recommend this service. Thank you!
Jeff, thank you for taking care of our entire family of cars. And thank you for putting on new wipers when you heard we would be driving into tropical storm remnants. You treated us like family. Amazing service!
I just relocated to the GR area and started having transmission problems... and I'm so relieved to have found this place. Jeff is an honest man! I found my new local mechanic shop.
I have never been to an auto-repair shop that truly acts as though they care about their customers the way that Jeff and his family does. Honestly, this is the most honorable, honest, and truly caring automotive repair shop that I have ever been to. Thank you.
We have been going here for a couple years now and won't go anywhere else! Very trustworthy, hardworking, and good people!
Good to know a mechanic you can trust. These guys are thorough and honest. My car was finished in less time than I was quoted and they charged me accordingly.
When I worked on the east side of Metro GR I used Cascade Auto for my personal cars and my work vehicles. Due to the downturn in the economy I wound up in a situation where I really had to start taking care of things myself. So for the past 10's I've been doing my own repairs. Just recently I had a problem that was outside of anything a repair manual or the internet could tell me. I needed help and my first thought was to take it to Cascade Auto. I'm happy to say they found the problem!!! It was something that should have never happened and could have been a defect going back to when the motor was built in the factory. The repair tech didn't give up and despite everyone and everything online telling him that couldn't be the problem he figured it out. Very happy that I reconnected with Jeff and his team.
