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.
Best mechanics I've ever been to all my years of driving. The owner is extremely knowledgeable and has a strong team working for him. Reasonable prices and a quality job done.
Really good and honest service here.
My family members and I have been customers here for a very long time and cannot say enough good things about Central Bergen Auto. Mike is a friendly guy who?s given me great automotive advice throughout the years. Owning a car is made infinitely easier by having a trustworthy mechanic who does good work.
By far the best automotive repair facility in North Jersey. Timely service and fair price's make Central Bergen an easy choice to have work done on you're vehicle.
Everyone here was so accommodating and helpful. Called 30 minutes before close on a Friday evening and they still fit me in last minute for a brake light change. Very good prices. When I had to leave my car for the day to get serviced, they even offered transportation. Will definitely be going here again next time I have issues with my car!
Honest shop with knowledgeable mechanics. Mike is a pleasure to deal with, car is always finished on time. May not look like much, but truly a great shop for service. Trusted them enough to have them rebuild the lousy Ford AOD transmission in my Grand Marquis. Fair price, and got a warranty on it too. Also have them maintain my Cadillac and VW Jetta. Been going here ever since my friend Roger closed his D&R Service when he retired several years back.
Mike who owns the place, has been great, honest, and trustworthy for years now. He always makes sure he gives us the recommended services that he would get as if it was his own car. Its awesome to have someone like him that I can trust his expertise.
Always went here for honest suggestions. They explained to me in a very reasonable way. Recommended to friends!
If you're looking for a great honest repair shop. STOP, look no further, you found them. Mike is Knowledgeable, trustworthy, and personal. If I could give him 10 stars I would!!
