    What People Say About Us


    • -Mike E.

      Always willing go the extra mile for you, Vehicle has been fixed the first time and quickly and accurate every time. Mike the owner is extremely knowledgeable about the vehicles and is willing to explain it to you in a way that makes sense. I don't see them adding in all this extra stuff many other shops need. Best place in town if you want to work with straight shooters.


    • -Barbara A.

      Everyone here was extremely friendly and helpful. My daughter and I felt very welcome and they took care of us in a timely fashion. They even recommended a place where I could purchase less expensive tires. I will be back! Thank you!


    • -Ashley L.

      I will not take my car anywhere else. They are trustworthy, fast, reliable, affordable, and they do not take advantage of you. They really value you here!


    • -James L.

      Central Automotive is the only place I will go. Mike always finds time to fit me in no matter what the issue and keeps me and my fleet on the road. The team of mechanics can handle every situation from oil changes to full engine rebuilds and technical electrical issues. The staff is always friendly and most importantly honest. They understand my schedule and will even go pick up the cars or give me a loaner. Finding an automotive shop that you can trust is hard to find but I always get honest answers on what is worth fixing and what should wait and there is never unnecessary extras or running up the bill. 10 stars wasn't an option or they would get that.


    • -Joe D.

      Best place to get maintenance done! Also the customer service is great.


    • -Rob S.

      Great place to get your vehicle diagnosed and repaired.


    • -M. Schell

      Knowledgeable, friendly, honest service. Will continue to visit for service. I wouldn't trust anyone else with my vehicle. They even gave me a lift home on the other side of town while doing my repairs. Great place, great people!


    • -Theresa C.

      My experience was amazing from the start. I called in about a nightmare of an oil leak. I was anticipating them being able to get me in by the afternoon at best, if not the next day, but Doc kindly answered the phone and told me to bring the car in as soon as I could. I brought it in an hour or two later, and they diagnosed the problem in ten minutes. Everyone was very communicative about the issue, and one member of the team even offered to give me a ride to work as it was going to take a couple of hours. Mike ensured that my car would be repaired by the end of the day, even with the several other projects already in line. It was just extremely refreshing to have honest, genuine, caring people providing top quality service. You can bet I'll be going there for my automotive needs from now on. Thank you!!


    • -Aaron K.

      Great service, very informative without pressuring me into ramping up my bill. Very fast.


    • -Nina F.

      Thank you for a great initial meet today and helping me with my Jeep and what it?s going to take to get it up to good standings. Loved the honesty. Professionalism and all around good energy in your place.


    • -Michelle F.

      Mike was so kind. He got me in the next day after I called. Prompt and friendly service. It doesn?t get much better than this place! Highly recommend.

  • 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.
