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.

What Our Customers Are Saying

They are good people in that I trusted their assessment. My car had air conditioner problems and I had previously taken it elsewhere. The other people put more freon in and said there was nothing wrong. The problems persisted.

-Brian G.

Absolutely great place that backs their work. I've been to other mechanics in the area, and I'm not sure if I can trust them. I'd always leave with the same issue coming back within a day or two. Guaranteed has been nothing but amazing for my wife and I. Great prices, and great people.


-Stephen S.

Very respectfully and knowledgeable staff and mechanics. I recommend


-Toya W.

Great vehicle mechanics who you can Trust. They do an intense evaluation of your vehicle, and provide prices that are Fair!


-John M.

This is by far the best garage I've found in the 10 years I've been in this area. It's a good, local place where the owner knows your name, your car and the history of the issues and problems you've had the minute he picks up the phone. I'll never go anywhere else, and anyone reading this is crazy for not going. I rarely write reviews, and I have no connections to this business, but as people read these more and more I felt I should add my feelings on my experience considering the great service I've experienced.


-Chris L.

Fantastic service. Competent, certified, courteous, and ethical technicians. Good management. Six stars.


-Craig E.

Very nice people. They will help anybody I will definitely recommend them to anybody. My first experience was the best anybody could ever imagine. I wish all mechanic shops was like these people


-Mavin H.

We were here on vacation from the Michigan winter when were told that we need brakes on our car. Rob was great, he gave me a fair price , the work was perfect, and provided me with a rental car to use while my car was being repaired. These guys are great. I would highly recommend this company. If my car breaks down again, I hope it is here.
