I have always been impressed with their customer service, honesty, and loyalty. They have never steered me wrong and they always stand behind their work.
Wouldn't go anywhere else! Family owned, not corporate! Fair priced, friendly, excellent customer service! They take the time to explain what needs done! Not like other shops that use the "scare tactics" they will only sell you what absolutely needs done!
This is where you want to go for great costumer service and timely fixes. They care about their costumers and won't rip you off like other places. Very nice and understanding folks.
Top notch customer service, fair pricing, timely service, and honest workers.
Steve at Pro Tire gives great customer satisfaction! He has always given me an honest opinion of what needs to be done to my vehicle, and has never recommended work I don't immediately need. When Pro Tire does a job, they do it right, but if there is a problem they will correct it. Routine maintenance rates are very reasonable.
They are not going to try to take advantage of you! I have been going here for over 2 years and they rock!
Brought my van in today because it was making some odd noises when I would turn. Pro Tire diagnosed and fixed the problem for no charge. I trust these guys. They are honest and do good work.
Best place to buy tires and have your car worked on.
Steve is always more than helpful. Goes out of his way to find what we need or squeeze us in. Never tries to tall you into unnecessary work. Always fair!
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.
