  • Vehicle tips

    • 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.

    Testimonials

    • Great Service, friendly staff, all around pleasure to do business with. Their tow truck drivers are the most professional you will ever encounter!
      -Rich M.

    • I was getting my car towed to another shop in the morning. The driver, who was very professional, said if I took it to Bear they'd beat the price, fix it up, and have it to me later before I needed to go to work. They did it all. Very impressed. Will go here for regularly scheduled maintenance and any other automotive problems from now on. Great customer service too!
      -Eddie F.

    • I'd like to encourage everyone to give bear a shot. They're a local family ran business that has been here for decades. The husband, wife, and son run the shop with their friendly staff. I've taken each of my cars here for almost 10 years. The do good work at fair cost. I like that they do small work like oil changes and tire repairs all the way to engine and transmission work. I don't have to have different people for tires, oil changes, and major repairs which is a time saver.
      -Lee H.

    • Courteous, fast, professional work in towing me in, diagnosing my issue and completing repair. Job (starter replacement) came in below RepairPal median estimate, and was done really fast. All in all I would recommend this shop based on my experience there.
      -M.L. Hunt

    • Excellent towing service.Handled my old car as though it were a multi-million dollar classic! Brand new Flatbed truck, handled by a pro(Dan#49). I will save their number!
      -Carl S.

    • Great service, had my oil changed. No pressure for upgrades or other services. They did notice i needed new tires and drew up a quote, given to me when i paid, and we're not pushy about it at all. Great price too, will end up going back for more services in the future.
      -Carmella S.

    • I love Bear Tire and Auto. This is the only place that I trust to do the right thing by me and by my car. They are honest and up front; they tell you what needs to be fixed, what can wait, what you should be thinking about in the future, etc. They don't give you any BS pricing over the phone - they want to see the car and give you an honest price. They do great work in a timely matter. Their manager, JT, is an awesome guy to work with. I have several cars and I trust all of them to Bear Tire and Auto.
