CV joints are an essential component of a vehicles drive-train. They allow power to be transferred to the drive wheels from the transmission. Not only do they provide power to the wheels, but their unique design allows them to accommodate for the up and down motion from the suspension; this is all done without backlash. At John's Car Care & Performance Center we recognize the importance of constant-velocity joints and can work with you to repair them if necessary.
Maintenance & Repair
Generally speaking, CV joints can last a very long time if their boot covers do not crack. They do not require regular maintenance, however, it is important to keep in mind that they should be inspected regularly for damage. If caught early, it is likely that the boot covers will be the only component needing to be replaced. If the damage is not caught early, you may end up needing to replace the entire joint and drive shaft.
Signs of CV joint damage include:
Visible cracks in the rubber or plastic boot, usually accompanied by a grease leak
A clicking or popping noise that occurs when you turn
A clunking noise when shifting
If badly-worn, the vehicle may even be completely disabled
If you believe you may have an issue with your CV joints and would like a professional opinion, then John's Car Care & Performance Center is here to help. Call today to make an appointment.
Extremely knowledgeable and friendly. John will go the extra mile for you.

John is the best mechanic around. He always goes above and beyond, even out of his way, for superior quality service. I know I can trust my vehicles in John's hands because I know the job will be done right.....and his pricing is extremely fair! Can't beat it. Certainly worthy of a 5/5 star rating, rather more of it were possible! ....and regarding Black Sheep's comment, I couldn't agree more with that 4 star review. John is definitely worth more than 4 stars.

John does very good work and works his ass off to try to accommodate everyone that stops in. He treats everyone nice and goes out of his way to try help people out in a pinch. Most importantly to the person who seriously left him a 4 star out of 5 but was happy with their service, that was inconsiderate. Especially for how john goes out of his way to help he everyone. If i was john id be on fire that my Google rating was dropped down due to one 4 star review. Google ratings are not for collecting points by rating every possible place and their mother, they are peoples businesses that they depend on for bringing in new clients, especially for small family ran businesses!!! Anything less then 5 star can impact someones decision to call. 3 and 4 stars should be left if there were slight unresolved issues with your service or experience , not a good experience! You seriously need to consider changing your rating so its not messing up that poor mans 5 star google review he had for years.

Love Johns, good old school shop with a knowledgeable owner who takes pride in his work and customer service.
- Michael Williams. 11/29/2016
One of the best experiences ive had at a mechanic shop. John is great guy and you can tell he knows what hes doing. Experience was easy and hassle free. I would recommend johns care care center to anybody i know. Cool to know places like this still exist. And thanks to technology these guys can finally get some of the credit they deserve not those big chain auto repair shops. Much respect john i apreciate you fixing my car and doing a great job on it. Until next time good luck and god bless.

- Divo Cd. 7/18/2016
John is a skilled, trustworthy, honest, mechanic. He has always told it to me straight when it comes problems and concerns with my car. Every time I drive away from his shop in Cherry Hill, my Mercury Sable purrs and hums like everything is right in the world. It's no wonder I drive all the way from Philly to see him. Thanks.
- Alexander Stanton. 3/17/2015
John at John's Car Care is one of the few mechanics/business owners I have ever met that has integrity. I have used John several times this past year and I would not hesitate for a second to recommend him to friends or family.
- Steve Fink. 8/16/2013
John is the single best mechanic I've ever had to visit for anything auto related. My family has been using his shop for close to twenty years, back before he even ran the place. Great service and advice and great pricing. John takes care of your car, no matter what you drive.
