Drive train & Suspension Services in Kalispell, MT

With gas prices rising, it’s important to make sure all of the components are working to make your car fuel efficient. A major component of good gas mileage is your Drivetrain, also known as your power train. This includes all the parts and systems that make your car go. The major components of this include the wheels, suspension, exhaust system, drive shaft, engine and transmission. Together, all of these parts work together to keep your car traveling safely.

When your Drivetrain is maintained, your engine works efficiently, resulting in a more fuel efficient car. Your drive train relies on your suspension system to relay the engine’s power to the wheels. As your vehicle travels down the road, the suspension system keeps the car in balance and absorbs shock from bumps, pot holes and other road conditions. If you don’t maintain your suspension system, it creates more than just an uncomfortable ride, it creates an unsafe vehicle.

Proper engine and transmission maintenance, as well as a maintained drive shaft and differential all work together to help your car work optimally. When your car has a worn steering and suspension system, it catalyzes premature tire wear and alignment damage, which also makes for a less fuel efficient car. Suspension Drivetrain

Best Shop in town. Very clean and well organized. No extra BS charges or anything fishy. Full vehicle inspections with oil changes. Very knowledgeable crew. I bring all my personal and company vehicles to Loren's. Highly recommended.

Excellent service!! We are from Wisconsin and found Loren's on the web. They were able to fly in a new front axle and get us on the road in just 3 days at a very reasonable price. A quick follow up visit for adjustments allowed us to continue our vacation as planned. Absolutely recommend them. Mark was personable and knowledgeable, they offered a shuttle service and John was a great technician for our Xterra!!

Lorens never disappoints! They continually meet above my expectations. They met competitive rates, they have been upfront with charges and even gave me a loaner vehicle while doing their repairs. I will only ever use this shop. Mark at service desk is amazing and very knowledgeable!

I'm out here in West Glacier on vacation. During the trip, we hit a pothole and the exhaust started making a loud noise. We figured a hole had rusted open or something similar. We called Loren's Auto Repair to get it checked out, and they were awesome with recommendations. They let us explain the issue and then confirmed what we thought it was. They weren't able to get us in before we left, but they were kind enough to suggest a mechanic in town that possibly could squeeze us in. This conversation was a sign of trust and good business. The prices they quoted were fair and had excellent customer service. Thanks!

This was the best car repair shop I have ever done business with. For being a young woman, who honestly doesn’t know a ton about cars, they were very thorough in explaining things and I trusted that they weren’t trying to rip me off based off my lack of knowledge or me being a young girl. Too many times have mechanics/car maintenance men try and rip me off. Once someone tried to charge me $180 for an oil change! Ridiculous. But not with these guys. They were awesome. My car broke down at a horrible time when I was busy with work and about to go on vacation. I had my car towed there and didn’t have time to stop by. They inspected it very soon after that, and got ahold of me. Then I was out of town for a couple weeks and they let me keep my car there. Even when I got back they had put it in the shop the night before so all the snow would melt. They were very friendly and even have a complimentary shuttle service when needed. I wish I could give the names of all the people who helped! Chad was awesome and answered all my questions and my dads when he called from a state away haha! The young girl who picked me up from the shuttle was super nice and has good people skills. If I ever have car problems again they will definitely be who I go to. Thanks guys!
