I am a car enthusiast and mechanic and usually take care of my own cars. However, after I completed an engine overhaul for my daughter's car, I kept getting a service engine light code that prevented me from getting her car registered. After spending hours on the problem and still not corrected, other priorities took precedent and I wanted to find a place I could engage to have them focus on the problem while I tended to more pressing issues. I found Extreme Auto and gave them a call. I was immediately impressed with their willingness to help and their knowledge about the situation. Extreme Auto invested the time it took to correctly diagnose the problem without throwing new parts at it in hope of solving the problem like most dealerships would. They followed through and methodically chased down the problem until they had an answer. I was very happy with the service, the expertise, the dedication and the cost. They went way above and beyond on this one, and for that I am grateful. Nice work Extreme Auto!!!
They have worked on my car multiple times in the last 4 plus years, and I always get excellent service and good honest work. Nobody else works on my car, period!
Very honest, which is hard to find in an auto repair shop. They have worked on multiple vehicles of ours and other family members, and we have all been very satisfied. I even took my car in once for a check engine light, and they did a full diagnostic for free. They really take care of you once you're a customer. Not to mention, Cindy at the front desk, is an absolute sweetheart.
Because of Extreme Auto, my car has over 230,000 miles and runs great. I get cost effective problem solvers with repair service I can depend on.
Finally found high quality and confidence from a team I can trust.
After many years of having my car repaired at the dealership, I have found that Extreme Auto does all repair and maintenance work quicker and less expensive. Extreme Auto always has time for me.
Not knowing anything about cars or car repairs, I have worried that other shops were taking advantage of me. Extreme Auto was different. They took care of my questions and gave me my worse case scenario bid, and there were no surprieses. They even had my car done the same day I brought it in.
They know what they are doing and had my car ready really fast and cheap!
Trudy at the front desk was wonderful. I took my Mom's car in to be inspected. When it didn't pass, they charged me 1/2 price and offered to have me bring it in a few days later and have it retested, which I did. It flunked again. Jr was very patient and suggested that I drive the car 30 miles and come back again. Third time was a charm! I appreciate it their Customer Service and their professional demeanor. 5 stars. I'll take the car there again.
They are fantastic! Always helpful and honest. Good prices. quick service!
Extreme Auto is an honest, dependable, trustworthy, cost-effective choice for car repair. I've taken my cars to Extreme Auto for more than four years, after they were recommended to me by an auto parts store. Even more than their expertise with cars, I value their ability to advise me regarding possible solutions to my car problems. They tailor their recommendations to me, to my personal situation. They hire the very best people; from their innovative and effective mechanics to the wonderfully efficient and sensitive receptionist. It's nice to have someone understand the frustrations and stress of having a car not work. Here is the bottom line: Extreme Auto is worth your trust. They will find a way to solve your car repair problems. Extreme Auto has the mechanics and staff you are looking for. Problem solved.
I've dealt with Extreme Auto twice, and I am very impressed with them. I had a broken head gasket in my Ford Ranger. I shopped around and found that their prices were comparable to other mechanics. They did a great job. I have had no further problems with my truck, and it has been three years now. The other time, my wife went in with a check engine light on her Honda Civic. They ran a diagnostic check, and told her it was just a gas cap problem, replaced the gas cap, and sent her on her way. Very honest I would recommend.
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.
