COST SAVING TIPS

10 Minute Pre-Trip Checkup Can Pay Off

A properly maintained vehicle is safer and more dependable and will even save a few dollars at the gas pumps. Motorists should plan ahead to allow time to perform necessary maintenance themselves or at the local service facility.

Car Care Council offers three suggestions for a traveler's 10-minute pre- trip checklist:

  1. Check all fluids - There are several fluids that require attention: Engine Oil, power steering, brake and transmission fluids, and windshield washer solvent and antifreeze/coolant.

  2. Check all hoses and belts - A belt failure can affect the electrical system, air conditioning, power steering, and the cooling system. Cooling system hoses may be deteriorating from within, so old hoses and clamps in marginal condition might need to be replaced.

  3. Check the tires - Check tire inflation and inspect the tread for uneven wear, indicating the need for wheel alignment. Also look for bulges and bald spots.


Follow these tips to maximize fuel efficiency of your vehicle:

  1. Vehicle gas caps - about 17% of the vehicles on the roads have gas caps that are either damaged, loose or missing altogether, causing 147 million gallons of gas to vaporize every year.

  2. Under inflated tires - when tires aren't inflated properly it's like driving with a parking brake on. It can cost a mile or two per gallon.

  3. Worn spark plugs - A vehicle can have either four, six or eight spark plugs, which fire as many as 3 million times every 1,000 miles, resulting in electrical and chemical erosion from heat.

  4. Dirty air filters - A clogged air filter creates a "rich" mixture - the proportion of gas to air is incorrect. This wastes fuel and causes the engine to lose power. Replacing a clogged air filter can improve gas mileage by as much as 10%.

  5. Don't drive aggresively - Aggressive driving can lower gas mileage by as much as 33% on the highway and 5% on city streets.

  6. Avoid excessive idling - sitting idle gets zero miles per gallon. Letting the vehicle warm up for one to two minutes is sufficient.

  7. Drive the speed limit - Gas mileage decreases rapidly at speeds above 60 mph. Each mile driven over 60 results in an additional 10 cents per gallon. Increase fuel efficiency by using cruise control.

What People Say About Us


  • -Ronda H.

    I could not be happier with my experience at Lunar Low. It was great taking my car to a shop I could trust and the cost was a fraction of the quote I had gotten at another shop. I would not hesitate to take my car back to David and Wayne. As a female it is great to have a place I can trust!!!


  • -Brian P.

    I brought my Acura TSX to get the exterior waxed. The employees down at Lunar Low Automotive took extra special care of my car and now it's shinier than the day I bought it. They even spent extra attention to detail and we're able to get door dings out of my doors from other cars opening their car doors into mine. They even made my exhaust pipes shine again! Would definitely refer their quality of work to anyone I know!


  • -Matt J.

    Took my Jeep to these guys on a recommendation from a friend and after 2 visits (for separate issues), my jeep is on the road again with no issues that I can find. I had my transfer case replaced, front differential rebuilt and an axle bearing replaced. They didn't promise more than they could deliver and delivered on what they "promised" and they're very competitively priced. I would not think twice to take my jeep there for repairs. Thanks Lunar Low for a job well done.


  • -Holly M.

    Took my 1998 TJ (Jeff) to Lunar Low because the rear end needed work. Ended up rebuilding the rear end, upgrading to 4.10 gears, and coming across more problems than we originally realized. I got Jeff back the other day and it's like a whole new Jeep!! Pricing was fair and I highly recommend these guys for all your automotive needs!!


  • -Shawn S.

    Fiest of all..great group of guys at Lunar Low!! As often happens when it's a female taking in her car she gets treated like she is clueless!! Not these guys!! Very respectful and friendly! Secondly..I have a 2012 Chrysler 200 and everything was still factory on it. I needed brakes..rotars..tires..oil change and wipers. Total price was fantastic and car was just like the day I drove it off the lot!! I will be recommending Lunar Low to all my friends! Thank you for everything!!!


  • -John M.

    Had air conditioner problem with our 2011 Equinox. Second time with problem. Another repair shop replaced complete system(suppossedly) only 1 1/2 years ago. Compressor was bad again. Thanks to Wayne we were able to get a new one put in for half the price we were charged before. Thanks to everyone for their help and I believe this will be my shop to go to from now on. Again thanks for your help.


  • -Chris B.

    Honest and fair mechanics can be tough to come by in this town and I'd heard nothing but great things about this place. So when my girlfriend started having issues with her SUV, I told her to bring it by. Best choice we could have made. They quickly, and properly, diagnosed and repaired the problem.They didn't try to tack on any unnecessary repairs or extra cost. Not only that, but their prices are great!


  • -Stretch A.

    Knowledgeable, and fairly priced. I don't take my YJ anywhere else. If I can't do it, they can. Extremely helpful guys, can't say enough about them.


  • -Leslie C.

    I took my 08 Wrangler to them when it was having issues with wandering all over the road and having to fight it to drive a straight line. I knew it was going to have some serious issues and have a massive price tag because of its age and the height of the lift that I?d put on it, but I didn?t expect the guys in this shop to be as helpful and truthful as they were. They found the best prices for the parts that were needed, and they even went out of their way to physically show me what was wrong with my vehicle instead of just listing off all the problems without explaining the situation. I?ve never had a better experience with any other shop anywhere, and I won?t hesitate to bring my vehicle back to them for anything from a minor oil change to extreme repairs. There?s no one else I?d trust as much as these folks and certainly nobody else I?ll be going to.


  • -Patricia W.

    Everyone is so nice, very accommodating and their prices are so reasonable! I highly recommend Lunar Low!!!


  • -Amber B.

    These guys are always so honest and helpful. I even got assistance when they were busy trying to fix their own shop from the hurricane. always honest. always fair. always incredibly kind. I cannot recommend them enough. They have fixed my tires, done my inspection, fixed my AC (when nissan couldnt!) and helped me when they werent even technically open. Support local honest and fair mechanics. They are amazing!


  • -Shane M.

    They listen to the vision I had in mind for my tacoma and spent time helping me understanding the pros and cons and making the right choices. They ordered the tires, rims and lift kit and had them in shop in just a few days. They were able to work with my schedule to get the job done all the while staying in contact throughout the whole experience. I was blown away with how great the truck turned out and really felt confident with David and Wayne getting it right. I would HIGHLY recommended Lunar low automotive for your vehicle needs, especially off road. They truly are a one stop shop experience with the ability to order and install/tune the parts. Thanks so much David, Wayne and your team and look forward to doing more business in the future.


  • -Christina B.

    What an amazing, and dedicated crew that spent more time than they actually had to to make sure my family and I were riding safe! This crew and company is honest and will tell you like it is without breaking the bank. I highly recommend lunar low!


  • -Julie T.

    I was very impressed with my first trip there. They were very honest and pricing was reasonable. They even offered to stay open late on a Friday for me after I had an unrelated ignition issue when I returned to work after my lunch hour- above and beyond. Thank you again!


  • -Jaye J.

    I took my car here about a week ago for a new starter....Not only was the customer service exceptional but David was able to find the part for a cheaper price (which saved me money) AND they stayed passed closing just so I could have my car the next day! Can't say enough about Wayne and David!!! This is THE GO TO place for your automotive needs! Thanks guys!


  • -Susan Y.

    This is by far the best priced with the most most honest auto mechanics I have ever dealt with!! I highly recommend anyone with any auto problem to go here first !! You will not be sorry!! They rock!!!at such a fair and honest price!! Thank you Rusty and Karen Bowers for the recommendation!!!


  • -Shari U.

    David and Wayne saved me over $3,000 by going the extra mile and checking things out where 3 other mechanics were quick to tell me I needed a new engine or head gasket....my fix was a simple part that was replaced with an oil change. They are now my and my family's mechanics for life!


  • -Charles W.

    These guys are the most trustworthy mechanics I had meet in over 30 years. They gave a detailed quote on repairs and a very fair price. This will be me and my family's preferred garage going forward. Thank you guys for a job WELL DONE.


  • -Felicia P.

    After being referred to Lunar Low by a friend, we brought our vehicle in to have a few issues checked out. We were impressed with their honesty and speed at resolving the issues our suv was having. They are our go to shop now for everything from tires to inspections and any vehicle maintenance related. We highly recommend this place to all our friends now.
