According to recent studies, 5 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities are clearly caused by automobile maintenance neglect.
The cooling system should be completely flushed and refilled about every 24 months. The level, condition, and concentration of coolant should be checked. (A 50/50 mix of anti-freeze and water is usually recommended.)
Never remove the radiator cap until the engine has thoroughly cooled. The tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps and hoses should be checked by a pro.
Change your oil and oil filter as specified in your manual, or more often (every 3,000 miles) if you make frequent short jaunts, extended trips with lots of luggage or tow a trailer.
Replace other filters (air, fuel, PCV, etc.) as recommended, or more often in dusty conditions. Get engine drivability problems (hard stops, rough idling, stalling, diminished power, etc.) corrected at a good shop.
A dirty windshield causes eye fatigue and can pose a safety hazard. Replace worn blades and get plenty of windshield washer solvent.
Have your tires rotated about every 5,000 miles. Check tire pressures once a month; let the tires cool down first. Don't forget your spare and be sure your jack is in good condition.
Check your owner's manual to find out what fuel octane rating your car's engine needs then buy it.
Keep your tires inflated to the proper levels. Under-inflated tires make it harder for your car to move down the road, which means your engine uses more fuel to maintain speed.
Lighten the load. Heavier vehicles use more fuel, so clean out unnecessary weight in the passenger compartment or trunk before you hit the road.
Use the A/C sparingly. The air conditioner puts extra load on the engine forcing more fuel to be used.
Keep your windows closed. Wide-open windows, especially at highway speeds, increase aerodynamic drag and the result is up to a 10% decrease in fuel economy.
Avoid long idling. If you anticipate being stopped for more than one minute, shut off the car. Contrary to popular belief, restarting the car uses less fuel than letting it idle.
Stay within posted speed limits. The faster you drive, the more fuel you use. For example, driving at 65 miles per hour (mph) rather than 55 mph, increases fuel consumption by 20 percent.
Use cruise control. Using cruise control on highway trips can help you maintain a constant speed and, in most cases, reduce your fuel consumption.
Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency as much as 30 percent.
Inspect the engine's belts regularly. Look for cracks or missing sections or segments. Worn belts will affect the engine performance.
Have the fuel filter changed every 10,000 miles to prevent rust, dirt and other impurities from entering the fuel system.
Change the transmission fluid and filter every 15,000 to 18,000 miles. This will protect the precision-crafted components of the transmission/transaxle.
Inspect the suspension system regularly. This will extend the life of the vehicle's tires.
You need auto repair? Hunt no further! I usually have pretty bad luck with vehicles and have had a ton of work done by R&R since they opened in 2006. I recommend them to anyone. Superior work. Very fair rates. Positive atmosphere.Try them out. I can pretty much guarantee you'll keep going back.
I took my car here on a recommendation from a professor... Best auto place ever. They didn't try to up sell me on anything and the price was so low I thought it was wrong. I had a bad sensor and i could not believe how awesome they were. The shop is a little dirty but hey, its an auto shop not a restaurant. I will be sure to recommend them to any fellow student who has car issues. Thanks R & R for doing right by me.
These guys know what their doing, they're great guys, and they will go the extra mile to make sure you're fully set up. I am only taking my car here.
Excellent service from smart and friendly technicians! Fair prices, good service, able to answer questions and do exploratory work as well.
Excellent service, very honest men, and extremely reasonable prices. We have brought both of our vehicles here and have had wonderful experiences each time.
Took car there with low power found problem very quickly called me within 2 hours and made arrangement to fix. Did a great job.
I have taken my 1999 BMW here twice now and have had great, affordable service both times. Everyone is very friendly and knowledgeable, and I now have somewhere I can rely on when something goes wrong!
Excellent! I bought a make of used car a few years back that is... Not seen in this area too often. I had a difficult time finding anyone that would even touch it, let alone for a reasonable price, and was worried I'd made a horrible mistake. Then I called R&R! They have all been amazing at what they do, and they're so upfront with any problems they find. Their prices are exceptional and I won't take my car anywhere else. Completely, 100%, recommend them!
Its not easy finding a good honest mechanic. I wish R&R was closer to me to take my own car. I would highly recommend R&R to all, especially the students. Parents rest assured you will have peace of mind. We got great service and at a reasonable price.
Great, honest place with very affordable prices. I would recommend to anyone. Gave me fast & friendly service during a crisishelping to tow & diagnose problems with my car quicklygreat people.
