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.
Speedy service. Easy to get appointments. Honest auto care at great prices! These guys are efficient and easy to work with. Glad I found them!
I've taken my car here for service and repairs for 27 years now. They've always been capable and courteous and honest in their estimates.
Fast friendly affordable pricing.
Thank you for getting us in so fast to fix my wife's AC!! NO fun driving in a black car in this years HOT Seattle weather! Great service, and liked that they reminded me to take advantage of their service coupon to save me some money!! Thanks again, and I will be coming in to get my car serviced soon, and recommend you to all my friends!!
I have a 2012 Subaru Impreza. I ditched the dealership a year or so ago as the wait times, service and costs had become a complete deterrent. I've since been into Scott Sherman a few times over (a couple oil changes, new tires, air filter, etc), and I have been incredibly impressed with the quality of service, honesty, and respect that the entire crew has always shown me. Don't go to your dealership! Support your friendly neighborhood shops, especially when they can save you a great deal of cash, and are far better from a service standpoint.
We started using Scott Sherman within the last year to install aftermarket rear leaf springs on our new Nissan NV2500's we use in our fleet. Jeremy & Chris are both always very helpful when it comes to scheduling & getting work done when they say it will be done. Having one of our guys out of his service van is always difficult with any type of repair, but the guys at Scott Sherman sure make it a lot easier on my end & do great work. You can't beat the warranty either!
First time customer for a routine oil change. Great service, knowledgeable information for the best performance of my car, and very friendly customer service. Will return and definitely recommend.
These folks are the best. Very honest and thorough and efficient. Highly recommend them for all your vehicle needs.
Michol and his team are fantastic to work with. Honest and fair mechanic. Such a hard find these days. I'd recommend this place to anyone.
If I could give more stars, I would! I've been bringing my car here for a couple years now for general maintenance. I'm so pleased with my most recent experience -- I brought my car in for new brakes, new tires and an oil change, and they replaced a headlight and reattached my license plate free, without me even asking. I was able to get an appointment scheduled quickly and the whole process was so easy and stress free. All of this work came out well below what I was expecting it to. The service is so exceptional here, I'll continue coming back for all my car needs. Super happy and thank you Mike!!
