    What People Say About Us

    • reviewicon
      , 03/02/2021

      Absolute is very modern in their operation. They clearly strive to be ahead of the curve in all areas of their business. They put new pads and rotors on all four axles. I drove it off their lot and everything seemed fine. Two days later I heard some grinding driving into work. They actually contacted me first that day just to check how the repair worked. I told them about the grinding and that the brakes started to stick. They said they would come and pick up the car to check on the work. They picked up the car from my home and found a broken caliper bracket bolt. They replaced that for free and gave me a generous credit for my troubles. Mistakes happen and are unavoidable. What matters is how you handle mistakes. Absolute handled the mistake above and beyond the call of duty. I have had other repair shops refuse to take responsibility for their failures. The fact that Absolute checked in with me, picked up my car, fixed the problem without cost or question, and even gave me a credit shows the first class operation of Absolute Auto Repair Center.

      All work completed well and on time. Included a full inspection with some good recommendations for future work. No pressure to accept the recommendations. Very professional and good communication.

      Called just 30 min before closing and they answered every question I had and told me to come in the next day. I need an inspection sticker. They open the next day I was the second one there it was quick. The gentleman who attended me was very nice. Will recommend them. I was recommended by my son who had his car fixed there.

      I felt like I understood what they found my car needed and what they did to address that. Everything was explained very clearly and they performed mostly just recommended maintenance for my car at 60,000mi, which were easy to cross-reference online. It was somewhat expensive from my perspective, but I did not feel like it was unreasonable (though I have no frame of reference, as this is my first car and first time bringing it into a repair shop).

      I have had my state inspection at this location for the past few years and they have always been extremely helpful and quick! The shop is very clean and the staff are extremely friendly and welcoming.

  • 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.
