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.
Needed snow tires for my daughter Sara's Forester; not only was the job done quickly with less than 24 hour notice on my part, her regular tires were neatly bagged and her car was back on the road! These guys do a great job with tires and getting the right ones for your vehicle! Thanks, guys!
Having an auto shop that I trust is extremely important to me. I trust Amity Motors to do the job right the first time & charge me fairly. Not enough time in my life to have to resolve issues with car repair / maintenance. Brett & Scott are personable & pleasant to deal with. I'm a loyal customer since I moved here 12 years ago & recommend them without hesitation. I always tell people, "They may not be the cheapest you may find, but I trust them to be fair & fix the car right." Have never had any problems with them.
Good work, knowledgeable staff. Honest. Always happy with their work and timeline.
Great service at a great price!
Amity Motors is truly exceptional! They are so very accommodating with difficult schedules, very efficient, and highly knowledgeable about cars. I am so happy that my Honda Civic is being very well cared for by them.
Good service, good people, good price!

Brett and Scott always are there for me, dealing with any car issues. Top notch, great service, attended to with a smile and fair pricing. At times, they have gone "above and beyond", to help me out.
The only auto mechanic my wife and I will go to.They consistently earn our trust with their honesty, fair prices and a thorough job well done, time after time. Thanks Amity Motors!
100% reliable, capable, honest, hard-working, friendly. I am a big fan of Amity Motors.
Awesome service and a great crew. The owner is really nice and will help you with tough questions and issues. Absolutely recommend them for both regular maintenance and emergencies. They do great work at fair pricing. If they find something wrong and it is expensive to fix , they will tell you honestly if it can be put off fixing for a while. Great guys.
Doing business with Amity Motors is a pleasure. They are trustworthy, reliable and you can count on them to do the job correctly. They are tops. I cannot remember a time when we did not go to them for all of our cars.
Craig has been exceptionally helpful to us in all aspects of car repairs. When I needed a review of a proposal to repair my sons car, he gave me a detailed analysis free of charge. Craig has done great work on our cars.
Our family, two boys, my wife and I, have been servicing all our cars for sixteen years at Amity. The service is tops and the price is right. Always ready to go the extra mile, and they are very accurate with their estimates. I cannot say enough good things.
Great service in a timely manner at a good price. I just found "my car guys"!
As a long time customer of Amity Motors, I never hesitate to recommend them to anyone who asks me about car repairs.
Always a pleasure to do business with the Amity Motors team. Great service and quality work.
Timely, thorough, and friendly service on a car with lots of miles that keeps on chuggin' at 30 mpg on the highway.
As usual, the service was great! Craig always goes above and beyond on both mine and my son's car.
Very trustworthy and honest. I have had multiple experiences at Amity Motors without disappointment.
I chose to wait and I was very comfortable. The explanation of the work was clear and reassuring. The pricing is fair and the service is great.
Though the car issue was a difficult problem to deal with, you worked tirelessly to solve the problem. Your dedication to car safety, excellent customer service, and fair pricing , is outstanding and greatly appreciated!
The guys at Amity Motors are always willing to go the extra mile to help me out with whatever automotive problem is occurring, often without notice. Don't know what I would do without Amity Motors!
Excellent service-great work!
We recently moved to the area and I am very glad to have found a friendly, professional, and reputable independent shop nearby. I dropped my BMW off Monday evening for a wheel bearing replacement and had it back Tuesday afternoon. Final cost was exactly what they quoted and I probably saved hundreds over going to the dealer or elsewhere. I like to do a lot of my own repairs when possible, but I won't hesitate to go back when the next inevitable repair is too much for me.
Helpful and friendly!I love Craig!
I've had my cars serviced at Amity Motors for decades because of their dependable, quality, and fairly priced service.
Very Pleased took care of me in a timely manner and I was out in less than 2 hours

My wife works next door to Amity Motors. For the last three years Amity Motors is thee place we service our cars. This is one place that will not do unnecessary work on your car and are very honest. Their pricing is the best. The only person that has beat their pricing is a guy that works from his home garage on weekends however, with the convenience of Amity motors and their willingness to charge the lowest rate possible I have chosen them over my home garage guy! It's nice to feel you have a friend in the business at Amity / Your friends Randy & Debra.
These guys are amazing! I am still driving happily and reliably today the car that two other garages pronounced dead and unfixable two years ago. Am very thankful I got a 3rd opinion from Amity Motors. Kudos!
Amity Motors has been servicing our cars for more than 30 years. Their maintenance and repairs have always been done with exemplary care and thoroughness (and at a reasonable price). This is a totally reliable company.
