COST SAVING TIPS

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.

Spoke to Shelly about transmission service for possible slipping. She thoroughly explained a Transmission specialist is best and then referred a few placed. Shelly's customer appreciation shines bright even on a phone call. Thank you for your help.

In a world of dissonance and diminishing customer service, Jaybee's sets a fine example for customer care. I never feel taken advantage of here and I appreciate their expertise especially finding problems before they get worse. Shelly is upbeat and sincere, a winning combination in my book.

A couple of months ago I took my 20-year old pick up truck to JayBees to have a couple of major issues fixed. They had worked on my vehicle once before and I was very pleased with their work. The staff thoroughly diagnosed my truck including the two major issues as well as several others I knew about but didn't mention and some things under the hood I did not know about. Shelly thoroughly explained all the needed repairs and cost of each so I knew exactly what I was getting done and why. I had everything repaired for what I felt was a reasonable price and my truck has been running like a dream ever since! Jacqui and Shelly were a pleasure to work with.

I've been a satisfied customer of JayBees for just under 25 years now, and you won't find a better shop in Tucson. I first found them when a local Ford dealer couldn't diagnose a problem with my Ford product and they've maintained my ageing fleet ever since. With JayBees in town, why would you need to buy a new car? Just keep yours properly maintained! And they do it all ... or can get it done ... at a very reasonable price. I could tell you many, many stories of how Jacqui, Shelly, Doug and everyone there have kept me mobile and would be glad to ... but reviews are supposed to be kept to a readable length. That said, they have my full-throated endorsement. You can't go wrong with JayBees!
