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.
I normally take my Toyota Prius to the dealership for any service, including oil changes. However, I was told by a friend that Mekaniks Plus has a very helpful and knowledgeable staff so I took a chance on them. I was pleasantly surprised by their service.They did an amazing job on my Prius. It runs like new and I'm almost at 70K miles. I definitely recommend them for your oil changes and major service needs. Their friendly, professional, and knowledgeable staff will take good care of your car.
I recently had a tune up done and have to say these guys pay attention to the details. From a great lounge with DirectTV to the welcoming staff. Christian made sure I was in good hands throughout the process which made me feel confident leaving the shop. Job well done guys!
Best service I ever seen. Very good customer service with reasonable price. I recommend to visit at least once, and then forever. You won't need to visit dealer any more. Christian is one of the most knowledgeable person and straight forward. He help me with my 2013 ML350. Thank you Mekaniks Plus.
On a friend's recommendation I got my 2012 Rav4 serviced with a complete inspection and I have to say that I was extremely satisfied with my experience here. The shop was nice and clean and the staff there was wonderful! As a female, I always feel like I should bring a guy with me when I take my car to a shop just so I don't get the wool pulled over my eyes or get charged with inflated prices but the staff there was really professional and honest. It was also reasonably priced and affordable. I will definitely be taking my car back whenever it needs to be serviced, make sure to ask for Christian!

One of the most honest, straightforward companies I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. They always are looking out for you, the customer. Always felt like I have been treated both exceptionally well and yet still pay a very reasonable and fair price for any services from Mekaniks Plus.
Very friendly, helpful service. Will continue to service my vehicles here.
Took my car in to get some rear control arms installed, came out great.! Everything was done professionally with high standards.
I can't say enough good things about this shop. Our BMW check engine light turned one day while driving to work, car started idling rough. On a recommendation we brought it to Mekaniks Plus Camarillo even though I didn't have an appointment they made time in their busy day to squeeze us in as a emergency service manager Hector is straight shooter, he'll tell you what needs to be done, what can wait. Great work at a honest price. Sorry BMW dealer you've lost another customer to these guys.
I absolutely love this place. This is the only place I bring my BMW. Customer service is great and the care they give my BMW is second to none. I definitely recommend them to anyone looking for an honest mechanic. Thanks Hector and Morris.
They were are Great! Nice clean shop and fast quotes and service. The free shuttle is very convenient and they have a nice lobby, reasonable prices.
