Auto Repair Shops Busy As Potholes Cause Problems For Chicago Drivers
(CBS) — If you need to take your car in for repair be prepared to wait. Mother Nature has wreaked havoc with our vehicles and most auto repair shops are backed up.
Jack Gordon at Ashland Tire and Auto Center says extreme temperatures cause big problems and so do the dreaded potholes.

Gordon says they’re twice as busy as normal right now and customers are lined out the door with tire issues.
