Since we began using Mobile Manager Pro, customer communication – and repair work authorizations – have moved into the fast lane. The response from customers after receiving color-coded digital inspections and detailed vehicle condition photos has been phenomenal.
The response I get back from people is unbelievable. They can actually see what we’re seeing. A picture is worth a thousand words. Even if your not buying everything, you can see it for yourself. In the days of simply telling customers what was wrong with their vehicles, customers may have wondered. This way, there’s no question.

Check your spark plugs and wires. Your ignition system works hard. Spark plugs fire millions of times, and inefficient spark plugs can cost you performance and fuel mileage.
Check all your caps. Gas caps, radiator cap, brake fluids and more. Anywhere fluids are poured should be checked for a tight seal. This will keep out water and debris and keep your car running smoothly.
Clean your headlights. Road salt, harsh weather, grime and other debris can leave your headlights cloudy and dirty. Take some extra time and clean them up to give yourself greater visibility for night driving. You may need to have them professionally cleaned.
Three ways your vehicle helps fight winter’s frost
Winter driving is its own peculiar beast, and when it comes to your vehicle, there are three must haves to combat these challenging conditions – traction, clear vision and heat. Luckily, your car is set up to tackle the worst of winter without much more than regular maintenance from you. Here’s how your vehicle helps you stay safe during winter driving.
Sluggish. Squealing. Unreliable. Vibrating. If any of these descriptors fit your vehicle’s recent behavior, it just might be trying to tell you something – like it’s time for a tune-up.
Today’s vehicles differ significantly from their decades-old brethren that required a tune-up every 10,000 or 20,000 miles. With newer vehicles, it’s increasingly common for manufacturer-recommended service intervals to stretch to 100,000 miles before certain maintenance items, such as replacing the spark plugs, should be completed.
You may be surprised – shocked even – to learn just how important automotive shocks and struts really are. If you need new shocks or struts, don’t delay, because these are crucial safety items that help you maintain control behind the wheel.
But wait a minute. How do you know whether or not you need replacements? And what does a shock or strut even do in the first place? Every driver should know the answers to these questions, yet few actually do. So we’re going to walk you through the answers, step by step.
Which parts of your car end up as landfill?
Each year, around 10-15 million vehicles are disposed of in the United States. Luckily, over 95 percent of these “retired” cars head straight to one of the 9,000 vehicle recycling operations around the country and 80 percent of these cars’ parts are completely recycled, letting cars claim top spot as the world’s most recycled product.
As the lubricant for the moving parts of your engine, motor oil is widely considered to be the most important fluid you can use. It prevents excessive engine wear and tear, which makes it vital to keep your car running. So when the time comes to get under the hood to do an oil change, you can bet you’ll want to know whether to buy synthetic or conventional oil.
