COST SAVING TIPS

10 Minute Pre-Trip Checkup Can Pay Off

A properly maintained vehicle is safer and more dependable and will even save a few dollars at the gas pumps. Motorists should plan ahead to allow time to perform necessary maintenance themselves or at the local service facility.

Car Care Council offers three suggestions for a traveler's 10-minute pre- trip checklist:

  1. Check all fluids - There are several fluids that require attention: Engine Oil, power steering, brake and transmission fluids, and windshield washer solvent and antifreeze/coolant.

  2. Check all hoses and belts - A belt failure can affect the electrical system, air conditioning, power steering, and the cooling system. Cooling system hoses may be deteriorating from within, so old hoses and clamps in marginal condition might need to be replaced.

  3. Check the tires - Check tire inflation and inspect the tread for uneven wear, indicating the need for wheel alignment. Also look for bulges and bald spots.


Follow these tips to maximize fuel efficiency of your vehicle:

  1. Vehicle gas caps - about 17% of the vehicles on the roads have gas caps that are either damaged, loose or missing altogether, causing 147 million gallons of gas to vaporize every year.

  2. Under inflated tires - when tires aren't inflated properly it's like driving with a parking brake on. It can cost a mile or two per gallon.

  3. Worn spark plugs - A vehicle can have either four, six or eight spark plugs, which fire as many as 3 million times every 1,000 miles, resulting in electrical and chemical erosion from heat.

  4. Dirty air filters - A clogged air filter creates a "rich" mixture - the proportion of gas to air is incorrect. This wastes fuel and causes the engine to lose power. Replacing a clogged air filter can improve gas mileage by as much as 10%.

  5. Don't drive aggresively - Aggressive driving can lower gas mileage by as much as 33% on the highway and 5% on city streets.

  6. Avoid excessive idling - sitting idle gets zero miles per gallon. Letting the vehicle warm up for one to two minutes is sufficient.

  7. Drive the speed limit - Gas mileage decreases rapidly at speeds above 60 mph. Each mile driven over 60 results in an additional 10 cents per gallon. Increase fuel efficiency by using cruise control.

What People Say About Us

    If you are reading reviews in search of an honest mechanic who provides professional work at an extremely good value then look no further. This place is a Christian and army veteran owned shop. The owner is an amazing guy and kept us entertained while the car was getting repaired. The issue was something that my last mechanic forgot to do (grounding a wire from the wiper motor). They fixed it quickly and at a very low price. I live about 45 minutes away, but will only come here for major repairs from now on.

    Pulled in and he took my truck straight back he knew what was wrong before he even hooked the machine up to it. He fixed it right off and gave me a better price than anyone else in the area. I will definitely be back.

    This is one of the most amazing work I've seen in Hickory in a very long time. Mr. Sam is very professional, makes you feel like you're right at home, greets with respect and very attentive to the customers needs. My boyfriend and I were very skeptical about walking in due to the past owners unprofessional work with our previous car, but once you walked in you could see a whole different Vibe. Looked amazing nothing compared to the last shop, the shop has a very homie feel. Also the work was perfectly done and on time. My boyfriend was shocked that Mr. Sam has already finished the job by the time my boyfriend got off work. So thanks to Mr. Sam great work and amazing family as well, they have a long time customer. Thanks!

    The owner of the shop is very friendly and seems honest. I'm telling my family to try Three Brothers Auto the next time there is something wrong with any of our cars. It's about time we get a good mechanic in this area.
