    Vehicle Tips

    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.

    What Our Customers

    Are Saying

    Did you ever come back from an auto repair shop and feel you had been treated with respect, given a thorough education on your problem and had them find the answer was rather simple and fix it free! Well, I just did and they have a new customer for both of my cars!!!!!!! Joe was all of the above and so was the mechanic that did the work. I highly recommend them just from one experience. Stay tuned and I'll update you all as I continue to have more work done.

    Went in to have truck looked at because it was making an awful noise and would not stay started. Everyone was very kind, even stopped eating lunch to help us! We were informed that the only thing wrong was the truck had the wrong oil. We are so grateful for the great service and the honesty of the people working here! Thank you so much for the great service! We would highly recommend this shop!!

    The shop in Holly Hill is unparalleled when it comes to customer service, knowledge and technical ability. I've been there twice and both times Joe has gone above and beyond. This shop will stand behind their work 100% and there is no other place I will go. Definitely a customer for life.

    Picked up truck went straight back and forth to New York from Florida. Truck ran great, good trip happy with service. Thanks!
    Honest mechanic, great prices. Been taking my vehicle here for 20 years.
    My car was overheating. I called the day before Christmas eve to get them to pick it up. They were courteous, honest, and trustworthy. They could have went along with my thinking it was the head gasket but they were honest. It was only the water pump, costing me 1000+ less $$ than what i was prepared to pay. Good people!
    I met with the owner to diagnose a transmission concern in my SUV. I'm on a very tight budget and the SUV is pretty old (year and mileage). He gave me a very honest and upfront opinion without trying to convince me to have the repair performed at the shop. I was very pleased with his courtesy and candor. I'll be sure to consult with him first about any future vehicle concerns.
    This is one of the best shop around .. The owner Joe is very up front with all customers.i would definitely recommend this shop.
    Simply the best car service center I have dealt with. Full one stop service from the difficult engine and transmission issues to the simple wiper blade change they do it all. Never trying to sell anything you don't need. In timely manner they do get the job done with their superior workmanship. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
    Honest. Affordable and Reliable Service. Joe and his team did an excellent job repairing the transmission on my Jeep. It rides as smooth as butter. I am very impressed on how they took care of my concerns, let me know exactly what was wrong with it, and discussed everything up front, including the price, which was very reasonable versus others. It took me a while to find them, but I am glad I did. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
    I had my escape for about a week when I started to have transmission troubles so I call and Joe answer and got me towed right in . Joe was a very honest man and funny. He got my escape back on the road and going great . I definitely give this place a 5 plus stars.
    Daytona auto is hands down the best there is in the area. My family and I are from out of state and he took us in as his own. Repaired my vehicle and worked with me on pricing to allow me to still have enough money to have the best purposel for my fiance. Hands down a great team and speedy , thorough work. I wouldn't go to another shop if I lived down here. CHOOSE THIS SHOP!
    These guys are great! They call you when they say they will call. They explain everything in great detail. Their prices are reasonable. Our transmission went out on a Sunday afternoon. We got it to them on Monday morning without an appointment and they fixed it by 3:30.
    Joe and his staff do an amazing Job. They are very kind and reliable and have done an amazing job on my car.
    Owner Joe is a very honest mechanic and doesn't overcharge! I am satisfied every time I go!
    Joe fixed my transmission fast and did a excellent job. I will always bring my transmission problems to him.
    Joe is the greatest he told me what was going on with my jeep and repair costs were better than I expected.
    I took my Acura here to Joe as it started shifting hard, and being on vacation, I really wanted to be able to get home when planned. Long story short, I took it to Joe thinking I needed a rebuild, he took it in looked at it, drove it, ran diagnostics, and told me I had an issue with the ABS module that was causing it to shift hard. He very easily could have dropped the transmission and rebuilt it and charged me for something I didn't need. But I feel Joe was very straightforward and honest. Good to see that honesty in the business world.
    Joe helped my son who is there for college. He didn't over charge, he actually went above and beyond to help out my son. Anytime my son is having a problem, he calls Joe and he always helps him out. Would recommend them to everyone.
