PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

Preventative maintenance is the best way to ensure your vehicle stays reliable, and lets you avoid major repairs as well as the expenses that come with them. At Save On Auto Care, we provide a complete preventative maintenance program, and carry all the necessary parts and expertise to take care of the little jobs that let you avoid the big ones. Choose from a comprehensive range of the fluids, oils, filters, and belts that your vehicle needs to keep running happily and healthily. Relax while your ride is inspected by our highly-trained technicians, and rest assured that it'll keep running smoothly for miles and miles.

The first part of our preventative maintenance program deals with your vehicle's fluids. Your car needs these fluids to keep running smoothly and prevent overheating. Most of our fluid change services are completed quickly so you can get back on the road in Upland, CA. Our technicians are happy to monitor and refill your engine oil, automatic transmission fluid, brake fluid, anti-freeze, power steering and wiper fluids. We also perform checks on your radiator to ensure there are no small leaks caused by stones and other road debris.

The next area of our program deals with the filters in your car. Whether filtering oil, fuel, or air, your car's engine and drivetrain rely on pure ingredients free from power-robbing particles. Your vehicle's fuel system, for example, wants only the purest gasoline or diesel. When microscopic particles build up in the system over time they reduce its efficiency and cause issues like decreased gas mileage. The same goes for your engine's air filter. An engine needs a mix of fuel and air to create combustion, and that can't happen if your motor can't breathe. Regularly changing your car's filters will prevent this from occurring. Save On Auto Care will make sure all your car's filters are flowing smoothly and clear, as well as the often-overlooked cabin air filter which can make a huge difference in how pleasant a car is to be inside.

Tire balancing is an important area of preventative maintenance where we excel. If your car's tires are out of balance, they could be putting undue strain on components in the suspension, braking, and drivetrain systems, which can cost you greatly further down the road. Ensuring a smooth ride with professionally balanced wheels and tires is a much cheaper, easier, and safer way to make sure your car stays on the road, while ensuring a long life for your tires.

Your car's timing belts are extremely important to examine during the course of preventative maintenance. There are a number of events that need to take place for one full revolution of your car's engine. These belts ensure that they all line up with each other, and occur at exactly the right moment. Should the belts become damaged or break, the events can fall out of sync and happen at the wrong time, which can be seriously detrimental to the health of your engine and your car overall. Save On Auto Care ensures that all your car's belts are healthy, and that all of those events keep happening at exactly the right time.

If you want Save On Auto Care to make sure that your vehicle is well-equipped to continue transporting you safely for years to come, call us at 909-920-9492, or visit us in Upland, CA so we can schedule a time to take a look at it!

What People Say About Us


  • -Diana L.

    I came in after my car had broken down on the freeway. The owner made me feel at ease right away. He kept me updated frequently on the status of my car. He even offered to keep his shop open a little later so that I can come drop off my new car battery. Truly exceptional customer service, professional, and fair pricing! David and his team are very caring and friendly. I will definitely bring my car here for all repairs from now on. I highly recommend this great place!


  • -Lorenia A.

    Today I went to Save On Auto Care for a smog check they are so nice & polite. They were so fast I was in & out in minutes. I will be going back for auto service!! THANK YOU so much again!!!


  • -Carol G.

    Took my car here for a diagnostic check because my traction control light and my check engine light came on and was very pleased with this shop they found that my camshaft sensor went out also my wiring harness was shorting out the staff was very helpful and nice I will be returning for all my automotive repairs in the future.


  • -Dalila P.

    This place is great. Reasonably priced. The staff is very friendly. I've been here 3 times and very satisfied each time.


  • -Rich S.

    Excellent service. Tells you exactly what needs to be done. Dave was very specific on what is necessary and what repairs are to be scheduled at a future time. I would rate this auto service 5 stars and would highly recommend them.


  • -Scott G.

    I haven't needed their services in quite some time. However, today, I came in regarding my water pump, and I spoke with Paul. He took the to check under my hood to confirm my suspicions. Instead of just doing the work to charge me, he advised me that he thought my vehicle was still under warranty and to verify with the local Chevy deal. They "lost" a repair job, but strengthened their stellar reputation. It is so difficult to find a honest mechanic, but look no further then Save On Auto Care.


  • -Alfonso N.

    Always great service up front by Cindy and the girls, and great service by the guys in the back! Very fair and very friendly; highly recommend them. I've been bringing my vehicles here for several years.


  • -Jose S.

    There is no other place that I would take my car for service, David will always do what is right and will take care of your vehicles like they are his. I appreciate everything you have done to service all our vehicles....A million thank yous!!!


  • -Barry W.

    I have been bringing our 2008 Honda Accord here for many years and never cease to be amazed at how good their service is. Cindy is always upbeat and easy to work with. I highly recommend their shop for their excellent service and they stand behind their work 100%. They work on all imports and specialize in servicing Toyotas and Hondas. They will have all my business on my Camry too.


  • -Rachel C.

    Came in for the first time, got an oil change. I didn't have an appointment, only waited about 30 mins. Very friendly staff, nice waiting area, lots of magazines, coffee, & a fridge with water. Close to home, I think I've found my new auto shop!


  • -Eileen R.

    I'm a return customer since 2014 for car maintenance and check engine light. Cindy is always cheerful as well helpful and informative. Scheduling an appointment is a breeze. David and the team here really know what they are doing and give you honest recommendations. This is our go to place. Highly recommend


  • -Lydia P.

    I have a 2007 Honda Accord, the guys at Save on Auto Care. Have helped to take care of my car over the years. With regular scheduled service I am well over 200,000 miles on my car and will be rolling into 300 soon. The honest, well priced service I receive gives me peace of mind as I make my commute everyday. Thanks for keeping my car on the road and me safe!


  • -Lisa C.

    I absolutely feel that my car & I are in the best of hands at Save On. I bought my car years ago because it was cute & I had no idea how particular the make was in terms of parts ( Volkswagen ). I can't describe the recent ordeal that took I think 3 weeks to resolve. But David & the rest of the team worked hard to find the exact used part I needed in order to save the additional money that a new part would cost from the dealership. And when I went to pay the bill, I know they showed kindness to me once again. David & the rest of the staff have great automotive knowledge, they complete work timely & always have fair prices. I feel safe recommending Save On to family & friends, especially in terms of fair pricing & sound repairs.


  • -Kevin K.

    This shop is amazing. I can't explain how Cindy is. She understood my situation and you wouldn't believe what they could have charged me but didn't. Then the owner really helped me out of a bad spot. The best auto repair shop by far that I've ever dealt with. But THE BEST thing about this shop is Cindy. She's professional, friendly, understanding and pleasant to deal with.


  • -Phil W.

    One of the best experiences I've had taking my car to a shop. From the start they did everything they could to make my life easier during my cars repairs. An honest, upfront family run shop that I recommend for any of your auto needs!


  • -Rogelio R.

    Went in for a brake and lamp inspection. Service was fast and excellent. Will be back for my smog check. Highly recommend. Great service!!!


  • -Lacy W.

    I came here for the first time today for a oil change and brake service. When I mentioned that they priced their brake service higher than the special offered at the dealership, they gave me a very generous discount. They offered cold water, soda, or coffee at the front and the woman who works in the front was very helpful and professional. I appreciate the service and I will definitely be returning.


  • -Omar H.

    Very professional business as well as the service reps here. Very easy to deal with and amazing customer service. This is a one stop shop for all your automotive needs! They helped me out and took care of me for an inspection that I needed to do on my car, they also checked everything out and made sure all was good!


  • -Phil M.

    Quick stop here for a smog check after being suggested by AAA. Fast service, fair prices, and good vibes from the crew. Definitely will come back if I need anything done to the daily.


  • -Sammy P.

    Kind and friendly. They provide drinks and snacks while you wait. Good and inexpensive services. The name says it all.
