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.
Macs was recommended to me by a relative who has done business with them in the past. I brought my car to a dealership for an estimate for some major work then I brought it to Macs for a second opinion and so glad I did, it was roughly half the price the dealership wanted. I have been going to Macs auto for all my car needs and would not go anywhere else. They are the most honest down to earth and up front people to do business with. They go above and beyond to do whatever they can for their customers. They treat their customers like they would treat family. Before you go anywhere else for car repairs call Macs auto you will be glad you did.
To the gentleman that rescued me at the end of his shift on a Saturday eve., thank you so much. I know you had something to do with convincing the gentleman at Goodyear to reopen to repair my tires. You made a huge difference in how this lovely life challenge played out
Thank you John for being so awesome tonight while putting on my spare - so fast I was able to get to Goodyear for the free repair prior to closing!...much better than the experience the night before with Dave (didn't want to put the spare on only air in my tire which went flat again by morning)

Great Service. Had my car in and inspected within 10 min. Takes walk-ins. Guys were super nice. Def. going back there for other maintenance.
Always honest and great service.
Wonderful experience. They came in a quickly manner and towed my car away. Would recommend highly !
As soon as I walked in the door they were polite. I got my vehicle inspection $35 plus my were coffee free.
Did my full synthetic oil and filter change for half of what others wanted to charge, and I was in and out in half an hour. They also located the leak in my coolant tank for me free of charge while they were in there. 10/10, going here for oil changes from now on.
