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.
Great service, very knowledgeable. Friendly staff!
Loved this place! They had me in and out in 20 minutes for an inspection. Great staff, everyone was friendly!
One of the few places that does motorcycle safety inspections. My scooter didn't take very long at all either. Will return.
Fair prices and honesty?.
Very honest shop. I came to them to get a second opinion about a service I received from another shop I go to. They went out of their way to check every possible angle of the problem, and the diagnosis was pretty smart. I'm impressed. Also, the shop had a full bay, and I was sure that they had other service that was of higher priority. Most importantly, they did not rake me over the coals on the bill or push an expensive service.
Friendly and fair.
My 2007 Camry needed a new engine. I dropped my car off on a Thursday, they started working on it the next Monday, and had it wrapped up by noon that Friday. It ran and drove like it always had, but the topper was that there was absolutely no grease or oil on my seats, door handles, floor mats, or carpeting. And there were no absolutely no dings, scratches, or scuff marks on the body. Sweet! JC Car Care replaced the engine with a very low mileage engine from the same make and model as mine, and it has something like a 12 month / 12,000 mile warranty. Kudos to Stan and his crew at JC Car Care!
JC Car Care is the very best when it comes to needs for your family's automobile. You can trust them to be completely honest and reliable. They are my very 1st choice for my car care.
JC's has always been great to me and my family! They definitely go above and beyond. One particular instance that showed the kind of business they are is when we were about to leave town and realized one of our vehicles needed an oil change. We called, and they were super busy, but they understood our situation and made an exception for us to come in right away, and we were able to continue our trip without any delays! I highly recommend them to anyone, they are super friendly, priced friendly and very dependable! Thank you for taking care of us over the years!!
The service is great. Extremely polite and friendly staff. They try their best to accommodate the appointment time you need.
I came to JC Car Care through reviews on Google+ and Yelp. They didn't let me down! I called on a Friday morning, hoping to get the car back the same day so I wasn't carless the entire weekend, but was told, of course, that they couldn't promise me but they would do their best. I dropped the car off at 8:30 and got a call at 2:30 that the car was ready to pick up. Great service, friendly, and reasonable price. I'll be back! Thanks, JC Car Care!!
I have been taking my family vehicles to JC for years. I would not trust my vehicles with anyone else. When I drop my car off for a lengthy repair they always drive me back home/work so I don't have to sit and wait. When my car is ready they come and pick me back up. How many other shops around town offer that type of service? I've had my vehicles serviced at both locations, and I've never left disappointed. I highly recommend JC Car Care.
Friendly service, great prices. They usually have a useful coupon on their website too.
Jack and his team have been taking great care of our vehicles for 5 years. They always do whatever it takes to ensure our cars are well maintained and safe. They will make recommendations for preventive care, but I've never been offered unnecessary services. Every person there is kind, polite, and downright friendly! I trust them to keep us safe on the road. I recommend JC Car Care to anyone looking for an honest mechanic!
I've used them for oil changes and repair work. They've always been honest and accommodating to my schedule. I have 2 young children and have always felt welcome in their waiting room.
Service completed quickly. Nice people.
Great place to have your car serviced. Stan and Kimberly are knowledgeable and friendly. The work I have had done there has always been expertly done, and they are great at communicating the progress of the repair. I have had 4 cars and a motorcycle in there and have had all good experiences. Thanks Jack, and everyone there.
Fast and friendly Service!! Will keep returning for car service needs.
I like the staff over there Stan/Jack/Kim. The shop is more like a friendly neighborhood shop, it's not a fancy place, but it gets the job done.
Happy with the work that was done. Trust the people with their recomendations.
We have 3 cars, and they all get serviced at JC. Although I hate spending money on car repairs, I do know they are honest and do great work!
They were prompt when we arrived. I believe they gave me honest advice about my Jeep, and tried to save me money. Car was returned clean. Very nice people.
The people at JC don't just treat you like a customer, they treat you like a friend. Very honest, and stand behind their work, because they do it right or they will make it right. I will always continue to return to them.
I've been to JC Car Care for a number of repairs and replacements. The service staff, Jack and Kim are friendly, and are more than accommodating. Definitely a place I can recommend!
JC's customer service and quality work is why I've been a loyal customer for several cars and years now.
I try to fix my own car problems, but if I can't, JC Car Care is the ONLY place I take my vehicles for needed repairs. They will treat you right every time!
They always get the job done as promised without a bunch of extras that I don't need. They stand behind their work too. Very friendly, prompt, and it is one of the cleanest garages around. I refer all my friends there, and I highly recommend them.
Friendly, helpful staff.
I've been going to JC for over 20 years. I won't take my car to any other mechanic. They stand by their work. Joe at the Kingshighway office goes over and beyond...
Good job. Very timing (sic) and friendly.
All the staff at JC Car Care are always professional, helpful especially Joe the manager.
I appreciate all you do for me, I have older vehicles, and you have always fixed what needs to be fixed, and have never tried to sell me something I didn't need, like several other places have. Thank You!
I found a great deal on a Yukon and the vehicle looked good to me. However, I am not a mechanic so I wanted some reassurance. Brad at JC Care Care did a 200 point inspection and found that the Yukon was in overall great condition. However, the A/C belt tensioner and A/C belt need to be replaced. I am currently working with the dealer to get it fixed under the 3-month warranty and if they refuse, I will take the Yukon back to JC for the repair. I am new to the St. Charles area and they gained another customer in me.
As usual... Great service!
Quick, thorough service and always with a smile. Great hometown feel, where you're not just another number hanging from a rearview mirror.
Good service like always. Joe and Brenda gave good support. I am so very pleased with the high quality service you provide.
Was able to get our truck in that day for inspection. Joe called in a short while and said it was ready.
Good timely honest easy to deal with friendly service
JC Car Care is the only place we take our entire fleet of cars for AquaComp. They do the best job!!!
Great overall experience every time! Friendly staff and professional work in a timely fashion.
Always excellent service at JC Car Care!!
Thanks for making the appointment timely for me, getting an additional service added on just a couple of days from the appointment and reminding me you have coupons on your website! I made the most of the early appointment, got some paperwork done while waiting, looked through a magazine and had access to a clean bathroom. The coupons you offer save my hard earned money and make paying for the work much easier! I also saw a picture of the owner and recognized him when he came in later in the morning. He was friendly and said hello as he made his way to the back. Great service, friendly and knowledgeable employees and an owner who acknowledges patrons when he walks in. You also provided me with a list of the things I will need to address in the future and a quote for the cost. I know I can always trust your team will do the right thing and steer me in the direction of what is best for me and the vehicle and not for the company's overhead. I truly appreciate all your efforts to keep me safe and taken care of. I drive from Kirkwood so you know I really appreciate you all! Thanks so much!
Quick. Friendly. Nice. Good pricing. Two thumbs up.
Got me in on short notice and got the job done quick! Thanks Guys & Gal
Excellent, prompt, service.
Fast and good
Fast, efficient service. Joe, Brenda and their team were able to fit me in immediately and the work is good. Thank you!
I never have to wait to be helped. I'm always greeted and chatted with. And I'm always totally satisfied with the entire visit including the work for my car that I came there for.
Great, prompt honest service.
Excellent Service!...Quick and saved me a lot of money!
I appreciate Joe's explanation of the repair plan and follow through to get the job done at the cost and time estimate. It is clear that he is knowledgeable and understands customer service.
Job well done. Staff always friendly and helpful.
Always reliable, helpful, and professional!
Joe and the mechanics are super people to work with. They explain what is wrong and what it takes to fix it. I have traveled all over the U.S and this shop is the best and the friendliest I have found and will go back and refer others.
Great friendly service
JC Car Care performed diagnostics on our car and quickly found the problem that was causing our car to overheat. They were able to replace the hose (that was leaking freon) the same day at a reasonable cost. They also informed us of another problem that they discovered with our car's front wheel bearing (they gave us an estimate to have that fixed). JC really cares about the safety of their customers. Everybody at JC is professional and proficient and we highly recommend them.
perfect service as usual. very prompt.
Good work. Done quickly at a fair price. Can't ask for much more.
Great service worked me in without a problem
I always have a great experience at JC. They are always courteous and pleasant. Couldn't ask for a better garage.
This was a simple oil and filter change, which was scheduled. The task was in about an hour.
As always everyone is friendly and I can trust that the work done is the work that is needed on my car.
Excellent service and I appreciate that they work with me to schedule Ted Lynn to do my service work. Thank You!!
