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.
Highly recommend. Honest staff. Trustworthy service. You won't be disappointed.
As always, a great experience with Chris and the gang at Air Park Auto.
For ten years I have taken my car to be serviced at Air Park Auto Service. What better recommendation can I give? They are very competent and scrupulously honest. You can not go wrong by servicing your vehicles there!
Very honest and affordable outfit. They are very skilled and your car doesn't smell like grease when you pick it up. After looking at my air conditioning system, it looked like a very expensive repair was needed. I agreed to the repair and after getting into the repair, they found out it was not as bad as it looked earlier and a much less expensive repair was made. A relief to find a shop that still works honestly. Thank you Chris and 'guys'.
Air Park Auto always does a fantastic job and reasonably priced! I won't go anywhere else.
We've gone there for years--always great service and reasonable prices.
Wonderful service, as usual! Fast, friendly, professional, and they never suggest or push work that isn't necessary. After having some bad experiences with upselling at previous auto service shops, that is a welcome change!
I have used Air Park Auto Service twice. They have been fair in their pricing and attentive to my needs.
Best car service ever! Over the years, Air Park Auto has done an outstanding job of servicing cars for my family! Efficient, dependable, competent, honest, affordable and kind. Just really good people...front office and service team!
Air Park Auto is a great place to have your car serviced. They are very friendly and do the job right the first time..
We have taken our 3 cars exclusively to Air Park auto for the last 3 years. The work is always done right. You can trust what they say. They try to save you money. No unnecessary work. Good judgement.
I have been searching for a reputable repair shop that I can trust will be honest and reasonable in pricing, and I think I have found that in Air Park Auto Service. I made an appointment a couple of days in advance, and the morning I had my wife drop the car off, they offered to give her a ride to work (I was running a few minutes behind :) ) I received a call within 2 hours with the diagnosis and a price quote, which I gave the green light to repair, and within 2 more hours I received another call letting me know the job was complete and the car was ready to be picked up. When I picked the car up, my final price was the same as the quote I had received. I will definitely start using Air Park Auto Service for all of my auto repair needs!
Air park auto is the BEST customer friendly and HONEST group of professionals I ever had the pleasure of dealing with. They have fixed problems that the corporate Big Name chains couldn't or wanted to much $$$$$$. My husband would not take his SSR anywhere else and my CRV has received EXCELLENT care 10 years and 100,000 miles.

Air Park Auto has serviced both my personal & business autos for years now. They are thorough, honest, fair and flexible.
Pleasant, quick, honest, and do the job right every time. Been with Airpark Auto Service for 15 years.
Considering the numerous times I have had my vehicles serviced there, the service is always done promptly and correctly. They always display a genuine interest in solving whatever the problem may be.
These guys are great! Had an issue with our car and as always we received prompt, courteous service. I recommend them to everyone!
As always, they listen to what I have to say about anything unusual and take care of my normal requests. Very customer service oriented and I really appreciate how I am taken care of since I am on the road by myself quite a bit.....
Another kudo to a local business - Air Park Auto - Yesterday my 2002 4Runner was making an awful noise, so I took it to Bill at Air Park Auto. He was able to get it in the shop and take a look even though I didn't have an appointment. Came back to say the motor for the ABS was making the noise. His recommendation saved me over $1500!!! He rebuilt my 1990 jeep and is my go to guy for my 2002 4Runner and Toyota van - been going there since 1996. Awesome local business - very fair and honest....if politicians could run the country like Bill and Chris run their shop, we'd be in good hands.
LOVE going to Air Park Auto! Great, friendly service; a lovely waiting area with coffee and WiFi! Reliable work at a fair price. Thanks, Chris!
