    Vehicle Tips

    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.

    Buena Auto Care has been servicing my Jeep Cherokee since I bought it years ago. Since then I have steered friends and family to them and they always do a great job. They are always courteous, honest and never try to up sell me which I appreciate.

    Buena Auto Care deserves the highest rating possible. I visited Buena Auto Care two times with desperate need for emergency attention and repair. At both times, management and the service crew were friendly, understanding, supportive, most professional, most efficient and effective in a diagnosis of the problem, and most fair in billing. I recommend Buena Auto Care to all my friends who need service for their cars.
    reviewicon
    Have made Buena Auto Care my go to service center for all my cars. They are very reasonable, possess an excellent knowledge of all range of cars, and are able to diagnose problems quickly. I have always gotten the truth from them while receiving the care of a local business vs. chain store. They are constantly looking to resolve my auto problems as if they were working on their own vehicle, saving me money by not doing added repairs that were unnecessary. Thanks Kevin and crew!

    Friendly reliable and good hearted. These are qualities that describe the mechanics at Buena Auto. I've dealt with many auto shops in Ventura and they have always been upfront helpful and accommodating. They're so well equipped that its the place where I bring all of my professional vehicles for service and maintenance as well. Thumbs up!
