PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

Car Care Aware

Courtesy of the Automotive Service Association

The following simple and inexpensive preventive checks will greatly extend the life of the vehicle, ensure safer operation and even benefit the environment.

Always consult your owner's manual for individual service schedules because maintenance requirements vary by manufacturer.

  • Always consult your owner's manual, but a good rule of thumb is to have the oil filter changed regularly - every 3,000 to 4,000 miles.
  • Have all fluids checked, including brake, power steering, transmission/transaxle, windshield washer solvent and antifreeze. These fluids play a large role in the safety and performance of the vehicle.
  • Check tire inflation. Under-inflated tires can result in a loss of fuel efficiency. This is the least expensive form of preventive and safety maintenance. Tires should be checked once a month.
  • Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency by as much as 30 percent.
  • Have the chassis lubricated frequently. This step extends the life of the moving components of the vehicle's suspension system.
  • Check battery cables and posts for corrosion and clean them as needed. The battery fluid also should be checked and filled if it is low, unless it is a maintenance-free battery.
  • Have the lighting system checked frequently, including headlights, turn signals, and brake and taillights.
  • Check windshield washer blades for cracks, tears and windshield contact. Replace them at least once a year, or sooner if streaking begins.
  • Inspect engine belts regularly. Worn belts will affect the engine performance. Look for cracks and missing sections or segments.
  • Have the air filtration system checked frequently. The air filter should be checked every other oil change for clogging or damage. This system ensures that the vehicle is performing at its peak condition.

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.
