    -Eileen C.

    Superb service, and this place really stands behind its repairs. Had constant trouble with my A/C, and they solved it once and for all. This outfit gets my highest recommendation with prices that cannot be beat for the quality of the work performed!!!


    -Ken H.

    I have all the confidence in this shop's ability. While there, I have actually seen them offer customers cost-effective alternatives. Honorable, talented, dependable business folks. I am proud to call Mr. Automotive MY mechanic shop.


    -Mark D.

    I have used their service for several years now and have always had the most professional courteous service. If there is a problem they go out of their way to correct it for little or nothing. They are very honest and you can depend on them.


    -Dennis P.

    Outstanding integrity and professionalism. I had not experienced this kind of integrity in a long time. My car problem was mice eating the electrical wires which required finding the breaks and resetting the codes. No surprise charges.


    -Anthony O.

    Very helpful, professional service. Diagnosed and fixed the problem quickly and efficiently. I would highly recommend.


    -Jocelyne C.

    Five star service! I was very appreciative of their ability to get me in and out of the shop quickly. I arrived needing a new battery, but had an appointment 45 minutes out... they let me pull right up to the bay and got started. Inside the shop is a great place to wait:) it's set up like a living room, so lots of comfortable seating... there's even a shop dog named Toby that comes to visit. If I need work done again and I'm in the Green Valley area, I'll definitely use this shop again.


    -Nikky P.

    Excellent service. I dropped my car off for inspection. By the time I got home, they called me with an estimate and said they had the part on the way. Quoted me a price and did not try to upsell me. They said the car would be done the same day and it was. Awsome,friendly service.


    -Kim E.

    I will never go anywhere else for auto repair in Green Valley, Arizona. They have a clean cozy place for customers to wait, and they offer you water too! I will tell EVERYONE to come to your shop to get auto repairs. And thanks for not TRYING to charge an arm and leg.

    Tips

    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.
