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.
The staff are all fantastic, friendly and knowledgable. We where treated amazingly and they truely care about their service! I would 100% recommend coming here any time. Plus they have a massage chair set up while your waiting- added bonus.
The Kwik Kar team saved me thousands by letting me purchase my own part when the dealership wanted to replace the entire wiring harness (over $4000.00 with parts and labor), when all I needed was on wire replaced (a $48.00 part and $145.00 labor.) I will continue to go to Kwik Kar!!!! I wish I could give them 10 stars.
My favorite thing about this place is that they're honest. I brought my car in before and they'd tell me "no, you've got at least another year before you need that done" or "no, problems there." Plus, they're friendly and fast. No problems in 5+ years.
Very fun, nice, and knowledgeable group! Was in and out fast and left with a smile.
Hands down the best and friendliness place. Very honest and thorough with there work . Thank you for wonderful service.
The only mechanic I every use. These guess are the just the best. Thomas the manager just goes above and beyond for the customers and staff.
This place is wonderful. The entire staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Most importantly trustworthy. I came here originally because of all the other great reviews online and they were right. They have helped me out numerous times with my car and I have always left a satisfied customer. On top of that they will have you in and out as soon as possible. I have never had a bad experience coming to Kwik Kar and will continue coming back. This is definitely the place you need to come if you are in need of a mechanic.
Kwik Kar has never let me down. They give excellent service and have never pushed for additional services. They are always honest and I totally trust this place of business. Very comfortable and clean waiting area.
Did a fine job for us. They went over and beyond when we did have a problem. I would recommend them to anyone. I feel they truly care and are honest hard working people. We will be back for more service in near future.
