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.
We were so happy THAT OUR CAR WAS FIXED SO QUICKLY (it had been necessary to extend our stay at the house we had rented, and additionally to procure a car from budget, all extra expenses). We picked up our car and drove to Elkin, NC, for a night with our sister-in-law; the next day we headed for Johnstown, PA, for Thanksgiving dinner with my wife's brother's family. It was truly a memorable Thanksgiving: great food, good conversation and a thankful atmosphere, all because of the wonderful people at Dixie Motors. So, my recommendation is for anyone travelling in the Savannah area, who needs an auto repair, to give the fair and caring people, and excellent mechanics, at Dixie Motors a chance to make your travel days bright and fruitful. And from my immediate Ohio family and two Georgia sons, here's a great big THANK YOU, DIXIE MOTORS!JERRY AND LIBBIE HATMAKERLANCASTER, OHIOP.S. We are back home and have had NO TROUBLE with our car since leaving Georgia!

Great job Dixie Motors. My car was towed to the shop Saturday night. They did not open until 7:30 AM Monday morning. I received a call at 7:37 AM Monday morning explaining what was wrong. It was ready for pick up by 2PM that day. I will gladly do business with Dixie Motors again in the future!
