COST SAVING TIPS

10 Minute Pre-Trip Checkup Can Pay Off

A properly maintained vehicle is safer and more dependable and will even save a few dollars at the gas pumps. Motorists should plan ahead to allow time to perform necessary maintenance themselves or at the local service facility.

Car Care Council offers three suggestions for a traveler's 10-minute pre- trip checklist:

  1. Check all fluids - There are several fluids that require attention: Engine Oil, power steering, brake and transmission fluids, and windshield washer solvent and antifreeze/coolant.

  2. Check all hoses and belts - A belt failure can affect the electrical system, air conditioning, power steering, and the cooling system. Cooling system hoses may be deteriorating from within, so old hoses and clamps in marginal condition might need to be replaced.

  3. Check the tires - Check tire inflation and inspect the tread for uneven wear, indicating the need for wheel alignment. Also look for bulges and bald spots.


Follow these tips to maximize fuel efficiency of your vehicle:

  1. Vehicle gas caps - about 17% of the vehicles on the roads have gas caps that are either damaged, loose or missing altogether, causing 147 million gallons of gas to vaporize every year.

  2. Under inflated tires - when tires aren't inflated properly it's like driving with a parking brake on. It can cost a mile or two per gallon.

  3. Worn spark plugs - A vehicle can have either four, six or eight spark plugs, which fire as many as 3 million times every 1,000 miles, resulting in electrical and chemical erosion from heat.

  4. Dirty air filters - A clogged air filter creates a "rich" mixture - the proportion of gas to air is incorrect. This wastes fuel and causes the engine to lose power. Replacing a clogged air filter can improve gas mileage by as much as 10%.

  5. Don't drive aggresively - Aggressive driving can lower gas mileage by as much as 33% on the highway and 5% on city streets.

  6. Avoid excessive idling - sitting idle gets zero miles per gallon. Letting the vehicle warm up for one to two minutes is sufficient.

  7. Drive the speed limit - Gas mileage decreases rapidly at speeds above 60 mph. Each mile driven over 60 results in an additional 10 cents per gallon. Increase fuel efficiency by using cruise control.

    If I could more than 5 stars, I would. I have taken my cars here for many years - even in the Foothill Foreign Auto days. David and his staff are always honest and fair. Pricing for minor or major repairs are much lower than a Dealership. Highly recommended.

    Angie and the team have been servicing our cars and I must say that I have never had such a great experience with an auto repair company. We had a problem with an intermittent noise in our van that other shops couldn't find. They found it!

    They had installed a radiator a couple of months ago and unfortunately it was defective (no fault of theirs) so I took it back around 4:00 pm on a Friday. Since this is my only vehicle and I had plans for the weekend they opted to fix it there right away. They contacted their parts warehouse and had a radiator delivered right away and had me back on the road very quickly. Thank you to everyone at Save On.

    I am so happy with the service I was provided from this team. I brought them a car that had a multitude of problems because I bought it from a guy on offer up who thought he was a mechanic and ruined the car. They took care of everything and all for a VERY reasonable price. As soon as you walk into their lobby you are put at ease because you can see they are AAA certified, have awards for their service, and best of all you see a picture of their employees showing what a close knit group they are. They are a family owned business and they definitely treat you as if you are being welcomed into their family because they truly take care of you! This team is dedicated to providing top notch service to their customers to ensure peace of mind. Angie has wonderful customer service and is very professional. I was so grateful to have someone who was willing to explain everything they worked on so I didn't just sign a piece of paper without knowing exactly what I was signing for. I will definitely be a returning customer for regular services such as oil changes. If you are looking for a new mechanic that you know you can trust please go to Save On Auto Care. I highly recommend taking your car here!
