Auto Repair Gilbert - Promo Video January 2016

GILBERT AUTO REPAIR CENTER PROMO VIDEO - Here's our latest promo video. Let us know what you think and feel free to share.


Just read this review and I thought I would share it (you can also see it in our Google reviews):

"I won a free oil change at my daughter's school for a school fund raiser to Spectrum Car Care. Before we went out of town, I needed an oil change and decided to give this place a chance. Let me say: I'm so glad I did! I get leery of auto places because of how many places out there will rip people off. My first encounter with the manager was great! The front office area was clean and neat. I assumed I'd be dropping my car off all day (my typical experience) and was pleasantly surprised when he said it would take about 30 minutes. He was correct too, I sat on their comfy couch and watched tv while I waited. He didn't try to upsale me any services. I even gave him a chance to tell me if there were any issues because we were going out of town and I didn't want car problems on the road. He said that I might need some brake service in a few months but he would physically show me on my car if anything need to be fixed in the future. I liked that. So many times car places will try to sell me transmission cleaning or fluid exchanges that aren't really needed. I will definitely be returning.

Thank you Phaedra for trusting us and for the kind words.

The latest survey from AAA suggests that two-thirds of US drivers don’t trust their auto repair shop.

They feel that they recommend unnecessary services, overcharge for them, and deliver a bad experience and shoddy work. All of which leads to a lack of confidence.

The survey also showed that 64% of drivers were singling out a particular auto repair shop that they didn’t trust, which would suggest that they value finding a trustworthy mechanic in an industry that comes with a lack of trust.

It can be stressful to have your vehicle repaired and maintained and the best way to reduce this stress is to find a repair shop that you can really trust. Unfortunately around a third of American drivers don’t have a repair facility that they can trust and are left in the cold if something goes wrong.

Given how much data on vehicle health the modern car collects it’s never been so important to have a trusted repair facility. These “connected cars” that come with technology built in that can diagnose and alert drivers to problems give repair shops the information they need to quickly correct a problem. As a result people are concerned about their data security and so they would like to leave their vehicle data with a repair shop that they can really trust.

There were some other interesting finds in the survey including like older drivers trust auto-repair shops more than their younger counterparts. Baby Boomers are up to twice as likely to trust their auto repair shop than younger generations; one-fifth of Boomers said that they had complete trust in the auto-repair industry. 76% of Baby Boomers had an auto repair shop that they trusted compared to 55% of Millennials and 56% of Gen-Xers.

AAA had the following advice for anyone trying to find a trustworthy auto repair shop.

Find a repair shop before you need one. Do some research on the repair shops around you and find out more about how long they’ve been around. Lasting a long time is an indication of quality. You should also look at how they handle complaints. Find out more about any repair shop through Google, Yelp, the State Department of Consumer Affairs, or the office of the attorney general.

Take your car into the repair shop for a small job first, such as changing the oil or rotating the tires. While you wait have a look around and talk to the staff. Find out about any credentials, amenities, and warranty for parts and labour. If you’re pleased with the service then you can stay with the auto-repair shop. When you choose a repair shop you want to build up a relationship with your technician to give them an understanding of yourself and your vehicle.

Today we’ll be looking at automotive service schedules; in particular the often overlooked scheduled services. These are known as Unperformed Maintenance.

The following is a list of the ten services you shouldn’t overlook. These are all important services that you should pay attention to. So here they are, in no particular order.

Power Steering Service
Have you really ever considered a power steering service? Power steering takes fluid that builds-up excess moisture and gets dirty over time. Having the power steering cleaned out removes all this dirt and stops the power steering from corroding. Check with your Service Advisor to see if it’s time you had your power steering checked out.

Wheel Alignment
Your car will start to pull to one side if your wheels come out of alignment. Not only is this annoying but it’s downright dangerous and really damages your tires; leading to costly repairs. Most owner’s manuals come with the recommendation of checking your wheel alignment at least once or twice a year.

Differential Service
Do you even know what a differential is? There are actually a few of them in your car. The differential is also known as the gear box and it is part of the drive-train providing your wheels with power from the engine. It’s not a service you need done all that often, but you shouldn’t just ignore your differentials. See what your Service Advisor has to say about a differential service.

Cabin Air Filter
Most modern cars come with a cabin air filter that keeps the air in the passenger area clean. They remove dust and pollen and they can quickly smell bad if they aren’t cleaned out. Having your cabin air filter serviced regularly ensures the air in your car stays clean, which can keep allergies at bay.

Timing Belt Replacement
Many cars, vans, and trucks come with timing belts. We’ll spare you the intricate details and just say that your car needs a timing belt to run properly. It can cause thousands of dollars of damage to your engine if it breaks on you. Look through your owner’s manual or talk to your service advisor about a timing belt replacement. If it’s been 60,000 miles since your last one then you definitely need to have it checked out.

Transmission Service
Having your transmission serviced is a basic but often forgotten procedure. The transmission needs to have clean fluid so that it can run efficiently and help you avoid serious repairs. Clean transmission fluid also improves fuel economy. So have you ever considered having it done? Check with your Service Advisor to see if it’s time you had your transmission serviced.

Air Conditioner Service
Many people forget their car even has an air conditioner until it stops working on them. If you’re in luck you can fix it by adding some refrigerant. If you’re out of luck then the entire system could need to be replaced, which isn’t cheap by any means. Having your air conditioner serviced on a regular basis keeps refrigerant levels up to clean, cool, and lubricate the air conditioner system and condition the seals.

Brake Service
By brake service we don’t mean when your brakes grind and squeak. We mean brake fluid. Brake fluid gets watered down over time and it makes your brakes less effective. It can become a serious and dangerous issue. Water will also rust your brakes and cause them to fail completely. Get recommendations about a brake service from your Service Advisor.

Coolant System
The coolant system is another one of those things people forget about. If you don’t regularly change the antifreeze then it can become corrosive. There are additives in fresh coolant to keep it balanced on the pH scale. These additives will wear out over time and cause the radiator fluid to become acidic and corrosive. It will actually eat into the hoses and radiator, which leaves you stranded.

Fuel System Cleaning
When you consider the price of fuel it’s never been more important to clean the fuel system. Fuel can gum up many parts of your car as it makes its way from the gas tank to the engine. Getting your fuel system cleaned will ensure the gas going to your engine is clean. The fuel injectors can also become clogged over time and need regular cleaning. You can save a lot of money and fuel and make it last longer by having your fuel system cleaned regularly, so check with your Service Advisor to see about a fuel system cleaning.

And there it is; our top 10 list of services you can’t afford to forget about. A recent study actually showed that around 90% of vehicles currently on the road need to have at least one of these scheduled maintenance services performed. It’s no surprise given how busy everyone is these days, but that doesn’t make it right.
