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.

Great auto-repair shop!!! Chip is awesome and they took great care of me and my car! Always willing to help!! Highly recommend!!!!
My new mechanic. I've had to learn the hard way trying to find a trust worthy place over the years to the point where I did my own work. I just moved here from another state and it didn't take long thankfully to find this place since because of where I live I can no longer do my own work. Chip was very helpful. I drive a Nissan Z and they didn't have a problem working on it.
This shop was a blessing on a recent trip to Lexington. I was in town for a convention and naturally my truck began acting up. I called the shop and Mike said to bring it over even though they were swamped with work. They looked over my truck and determined it was an AC compressor belt that was binding up. They fixed the problem and sent me on my way with peace of mind. I highly recommend this shop if you have automotive needs in the Lexington area.
We are new to Lexington and needed someone to look at my Nissan that had suddenly began making an awefully loud rattling noise. We happened to find Lexington Autoworks and took it in to be looked at. The people are extremely nice, he figured out the problem quickly, and had my car back to me completely fixed and for a reasonable price. I cannot express enough how happy we are with this place! We will continue to go here and highly recommend it to everyone we know who needs an auto repair!
Best option for anybody that truly cares about the quality of service on their car. Steve and his technicians treat you and your car like their family. Best value shop in Lexington by far!!!
