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.
I've been looking for a good maintenance & repair shop for a couple years, and I think I finally found them! Courteous, know what they're doing, and very customer-service oriented.
Fabulous shop. I have been taking my car to The Kar Shop since 2012 and I have never been disappointed. The staff is top and the work is always done right. Keith, Jack, Kevin and Kyle will treat you like one of their own when you come there.
Appreciated the honesty & transparency on what I needed & the cost involved. Very pleased!
Great people. Very clean and comfortable facility. Much Attention to detail when inspecting the vehicle from bumper to bumper. Recommend them for all your vehicle maintenance services.
I took my 1996 Ford F250 in to the Kar Shop today to get a few things fixed. One thing that I thought needed to be done was the brakes bled. When I picked it up they hadn't bled the brakes because it didn't need to be done, MIND BLOWN!!!!!!!! To be honest enough not to do a repair that I requested amazes me, 99 out of 100 shops are taking that money. I am a customer for life :)
I have used this shop many times and have never had a complaint. These guys have always taken care of me. I use to call around to the other car shops for the best deal and the Kar Shop always has the best prices so now I just call them first.
Women, go to this shop! As a woman, didn't feel like I was talked down to (SO appreciated). My car was making a terrible grinding noise, and the check engine light had been coming on periodically. Staff assessed and got it all figured out. Will be coming here again, service was excellent - knowledgeable, friendly, quick. Pricing was competitive - they won't tell you to replace something if it can be repaired.
The Kar Shop always takes care of any vehicle we bring to them! They are honest and helpful in anything you might need. I have even referred friends here and they have the same reviews!
My husband and I always use this shop. Friendly, knowledgeable and competitive pricing. I especially appreciate how CLEAN it is!
Friendly staff. Great mechanics. If you are looking for fast reliable service, I highly recommend The Kar Shop.
First time customer and I’ll be back. I think I found my local mechanic great customer service and work.
We took our SRX for a second opinion/diagnostic to The KAR Shop after the dealership recommended several services. What we learned was there are honest, forthright business people at the KAR Shop. Prior to the comprehensive inspection, they explained what items typically show up on a 6 year old vehicle with 80+k miles. The inspection was completed in timely manner and they discussed every detail that was addressed. The difference between the KAR Shop and the dealership?? The KAR Shop suggested an alignment service ( that is not pressing) and the dealership suggested over $1400 of services. Each service the dealership recommended was not needed. Goodbye dealership, The KAR Shop will get all of our business going forward. Finding trustworthy vehicle maintenance in NWA is now complete.
