Empowering car owners to take charge of their vehicle maintenance and auto problems with confidence.
To make you the expert on every facet of car ownership.
Trustworthiness, simplicity, convenience, style.
Founded in 2018, Axle and Chassis has aimed for an authoritative, but relatable approach to helping the average car owner with advice on everything cars.
The team of 5 is small, but growing. Everyone at Axle and Chassis loves cars and wants you to love cars, too.
Not everyone knows a lot about cars. So what’s the problem with that? Everyone owns a car!
The danger of owning something you don’t know a lot about is that you could end up trusting in someone who seems like an expert, but isn’t, or you could spend a lot of money on unnecessary maintenance and repairs, because you don’t know any better!
We aim to fix that. We would love nothing more than to enable you to take the power of car ownership into your own hands. Harness the horsepower and start your education today!
Whether it’s how to buy a car, how often you should perform routine maintenance, how to fix your radio, or how to upgrade your accessories, we have you covered. Even if you don’t perform these tasks yourself, you’ll know more about how to do it and how to find someone you can trust to do it for you.
Our comprehensive articles should give you everything you need to get started. If you don’t find what you’re looking for, let us know. We’d love to write an article about it to help you and others in the future.
About the Founder
Sometimes founders come in unlikely places. The Axle and Chassis founder grew up in an upper middle class suburb, but got lucky enough to have an uncle who owned some land and loved to work as a mechanic.
She grew up around men who were tough and rugged, and she learned their ways quickly. She grew up thinking everyone knew as much as she did, but when she realized that wasn’t true, she set out to do something about it.
Enter: Axle and Chassis. The team has grown to include a diverse team of knowledgeable, self-proclaimed experts who contribute their own style and knowledge. When she started the site, it wasn’t long before these other experts joined, and a few more are currently in the works.
She attributes her success to this core team of founders and won’t take any of the credit for herself. She says the best part of any project is sharing the journey with others, and without them, she wouldn’t have been able to get this project off the ground.
About the Team
Our entire team enjoys more than 100 years of collective experience in the car industry. From auto maintenance and repair to sports car and exotic car enthusiasts, we do and know it all. Or we like to think we do!
We’re always learning, just like you, so even if we don’t know something, we’re not afraid to figure it out, either by in-depth research or trying it out on our own cars.
Most of our team started young in the car industry with our dads or grandpas, on farms, and with unconventional vehicles like tractors and other machinery. It helped develop our love for all cars, even if they’re not fancy or expensive.
Now that we’ve been at this awhile, together we cover all kinds of topics with our expansive expertise. If one of us doesn’t know the answer, someone else on the team does. We rely on one another to increase our knowledge and build up the site for people just like you.
We’re here because we understand that not everyone knows as much about cars as we do, but practically everyone owns one. There’s a large gap in the world of car ownership, and we need to fill it.
Everyone who owns a car should have some basic knowledge of how it works and how to fix it, so we bring these topics to you in a way that makes it easy for you to understand. Our goal is to help you learn a little, save some money, and have fun!
Car experts, but approachable.
Sarah's love of cars started with a love of trucks and tractors that her father and her grandpa instilled in her early. She can still remember when the starter went out in her grandpa's 1972 Dodge pickup and he installed the first push button start she'd ever seen. It wasn't fancy, but in 1992, it worked. Since then, she's been pursuing her love for cars recreationally by reading, playing, and writing. Her all time favorite? Eleanor.
.I grew up on a farm, and when a vehicle had a problem, we fixed it ourselves! Experiencing this as a young man, I was able to work on and fix my vehicles as an adult. I bought a BMW when I was 20, and after working on that car, every other car is a pretty easy fix! I've been called an adrenaline junkie, and when it comes to adrenaline, nothing gets the job done quite like a fast car! Let's ride!
I love cars, always have, and so learning how to repair them came naturally. All the little bits and pieces; how they come together to work in total cohesion is fascinating. My love for auto repair and my passion for writing unite in this website, where I share my knowledge with the world by writing informative reviews and guides that, hopefully, will be of help to someone.
