10 Minute Pre-Trip Checkup Can Pay Off
A properly maintained vehicle is safer and more dependable and will even save a few dollars at the gas pumps. Motorists should plan ahead to allow time to perform necessary maintenance themselves or at the local service facility.
Car Care Council offers three suggestions for a traveler’s 10-minute pre- trip checklist:
- Check all fluids – There are several fluids that require attention: Engine Oil, power steering, brake and transmission fluids, and windshield washer solvent and antifreeze/coolant.
- Check all hoses and belts – A belt failure can affect the electrical system, air conditioning, power steering, and the cooling system. Cooling system hoses may be deteriorating from within, so old hoses and clamps in marginal condition might need to be replaced.
- Check the tires – Check tire inflation and inspect the tread for uneven wear, indicating the need for wheel alignment. Also look for bulges and bald spots.
I am always comfortable going here because I know these people won't do me wrong.

Can not thank Ben and his staff enough (specifically Toni) for the outstanding communication and service (customer and mechanical) in the process of rebuilding the transmission and clutch in our 2005 Jeep Rubicon LJ.
From a recommendation by our local 4x4 and speed shop.....they have earned our trust with proven diagnostic through solution and budget based mechanical service.
