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.

Mike and his people do a great job! The shop is clean. They are honest and know Japanese cars. They work on my 2011 Honda Accord and 2004 Nissan Xterra. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a repair shop in Tucson.

Parker Automotive has always taken excellent care of my Lexus IS350. They really balance the line of over and under recommending products and services and do well explaining options. Their new location is great and waiting on a car there is easy with satellite TV and WiFi available. I highly recommend Parker automotive to service your vehicle.

-P.G. - Tuscon, AZ
These guys definitely have their act together. I got an accurate quote over the phone, an accurate time estimate, and great service. Then, they followed up a week or so later to make sure everything was ok. In my case, the job was under $100, so you can imagine the level of service is consistent.
-Ryan H. - Tuscon, AZ
I have been seeing Ryan and the guys for over 15 years. They serviced my 94 Toyota Tacoma and now my 08 Tacoma. These guys are true pros, honest as they come and just really good people. I have recommended them for years and am glad to do so on Google Reviews. They fix what needs to be fixed and at a fair price. Their new building is amazing and shows these guys will be around for a long time. I certainly hope so!

-Debbie P. - Tuscon, AZ
Good service, good advice. While they advised some additional maintenance, they inquired about previous work done on the vehicle and there was no pressure in the situation. They even cleaned my entire car, at no extra cost. 10/10 would recommend and visit again.
