      If you need honest mechanics, this is your place! I feel comfortable and at home with Jacob, Sabrina and the rest of the crew. Everyone is friendly and most of all you can trust that they won't rip you off with work your vehicle doesn't need. Come on out and give them a chance. You will never look back.

      Jacob and his team took great care of me. Had a tire sensor issue, they replaced and rotated a tire for me. Upon the rotation Jacob found that I had no wheel weights on my tire. He was kind enough to take care of the issue for me. Great service, great team and great prices!! Thank you Jacob for getting me back on the road safely. Thank you Sabrina for keeping me company while I wanted and making sure my vehicle was getting taken care of too!

      I usually do all my own automotive stuff, mostly because I've seen the aftermath of using cheap, bad mechanics. My oil plug was stopped at a random quick oil change shop and they didn't tell me, they just put blue Loctite on it and I only found this when I decided to do my own oil change. Trust is key, and Caliber is the only place I trust. The owner, Jacob, tells the truth and is fair in his pricing. What else do you want from your mechanic? I will always refer Caliber to anyone who needs work on their vehicle. Epic experience, a great digital assessment gets sent to you so you can see what they checked and what needs to be addressed. I brought it in for brakes and they told me it didn't need brakes, I've been to shops who would have sold me brakes, they aren't like that at Caliber. Thank you Jacob.

      Caliber Auto Repair is the only place I take all of my vehicles. This even includes my classic Chevy truck. Their work is superb, all staff is professional, and the service is top quality. I refer everyone I know to Caliber Auto Repair. If you have car trouble, take it to Caliber Auto Repair.

      One of the more pleasant experiences I've had with a auto mechanic. Wanted my 2002 Silverado brought back to life that was sitting for 1-2 years. I took it to a dealership and a few other places and was quoted enormous amounts and little explanations. However Caliber sent me a full diagnostic color-coded with urgent fixes and did it for about half the cost. They were fast, honest, and the owner even checks up with you after the work is done to make sure you are satisfied. Sabrina and Jacob were easy to work with. I've found a new spot to take my trucks and cars from now on. Thank you!

      I had Jacob and the gang at Caliber Automotive install a front end lift kit on my 2018 Ford F 250 super duty. The work was perfect and completed in a very timely manner. My truck was well cared for, not even a dirty fingerprint left behind. Being a mechanic my self I am very picky. For great work as well as fantastic customer care I absolutely recommend these guys. I am taking my truck back in for more work.

      These guys have worked on all my vehicles since I could drive and they have always been 100% honest and worked with me to get the job done correctly. Their prices are completely fair and the technicians are extremely knowledgeable. I always recommend these guys to my family and friends and can't say enough good things about these guys!

      Yup, this is an absolutely trustworthy and knowledgeable auto repair shop. Through a few different experiences, they have definitely earned their place as our go-to mechanic. I mean, just check out their Google and Yelp reviews... they strive on providing top-notch service!

      My company uses Caliber so I thought I'd give them a try. The staff is so friendly and scheduling is always easy. I took my vehicle in a while back because i felt like it was loosing power, Jacob and his team diagnosed the issue and let me know that the issue should still be under warranty with the dealer. They fixed just enough for me to get my vehicle there safely. The staff is honest and always lets me know upfront what my charges will be and prioritizes what services I need for my car.

      When it comes to regular maintenance or any mechanical issues, I know I can trust the folks over at Caliber. They are efficient, skilled, and most importantly honest. I know I am not going to get a run-around and will leave feeling like my car has been in excellent hands. Would not take my Honda Fit anywhere else!

  • 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.
