Give Beckley Automotive Service as Father’s Day Gift

, , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Father's Day giftThis Sunday, June 18, is the day for you to show your dad how much he means to you. Whether he’s helping to shop for a new car, giving valuable job search advice or just being there to bounce ideas off of, he deserves a great Father’s Day gift! But instead of the old tie or “World’s Best Dad” coffee mug, why not do something Dad will really appreciate?

Bring his car into Beckley Automotive for the royal treatment this Father’s Day!

You know how much Dad loves his car. It doesn’t matter if he’s driving a brand-new Porsche or an older model Chevrolet, your dad is really proud of his vehicle. It’s important to him to keep it clean, inside and out, as well as running smoothly and reliably. But too often, schedules get full and car maintenance falls by the wayside. Sure, the big things that keep the car running get taken car of, but how long has it been since Dad had the time to really baby his car?

Some of the items Beckley Automotive can take care of for your dad as a Father’s Day gift include:

  • air conditioning
  • battery and starter systems
  • engine
  • detailing & dent removal
  • brake and electrical systems
  • oil change and service
  • car tire & wheel alignment

Has your dad been putting off fixing those annoying hail dings in his car’s hood? Maybe he’s been meaning to get new tires and just hasn’t gotten around to it. It could be that Dad just isn’t able to do all the maintenance he used to do when he was younger. Beckley Automotive services as a Father’s Day gift will give your father that peace of mind that his car is well taken care of and he can still be proud to drive it anywhere.

Call Beckley Automotive at 515-243-8185 today to schedule an appointment or simply use our convenient online scheduling page. Just ask Dad for the keys, and we’ll take care of the rest.

 

Are You Getting Great Fuel Economy?

, , , , , , , , ,

great fuel economyDo you do a lot of highway driving? Are you more of a city stoplight driver? No matter if you’re road-tripping for your summer vacation, traveling for work, or just hopping on the interstate to get across town, your engine performs best and achieves peak fuel economy during ideal highway driving conditions. In Iowa, that means traveling at 65 miles an hour or better. Cross state lines and the speed limit goes up. That can be good for getting to your destination faster, and it can give you great fuel economy, but only if your car’s engine and supporting systems are working properly.

That’s where Beckley Imports comes in. Through proper maintenance of your car’s engine, you can get the best fuel economy, drive safe and secure, and save a little money in the long run. Proper engine maintenance is simply a matter of discipline.  Some of the issues you need to pay attention to for great fuel economy include:

  • Intake and exhaust restrictions:

    Make sure your air filters are clean and clear. If your car can’t breathe, it will work harder and use more fuel to get going.

  • Timing and shifting:

    Slipping of the clutch in a manual transmission or the torque converter lockup in an automatic can make you lose power before it even gets to the wheels.

  • Mechanical resistance:

    We’ll tell you time and time again to make sure your oil is clean. The more impurities and particles in your engine’s oil, the more friction in your engine and the harder it has to work.

  • Tire performance:

    Improper inflation of your tires causes all kinds of trouble, including lower fuel economy and more wear on your wheels.

These can have a substantial effect on fuel economy and how well your car runs. Even driving conditions like outside temperature and wind resistance can have an impact.

Get the most out of every dollar you spend at the pump. Beckley Automotive’s team of expert technicians can give your car a thorough inspection and recommend needed services to help your vehicle achieve optimal fuel economy for driving around town or hauling the family to Wally World. In many cases, a simple tune-up can make a big difference!

Don’t forget that Mother’s Day is this weekend! Bring Mom’s car in for an inspection and tune-up and help her get the most out of her gas money. We can also get Dad’s or your graduate’s engine ready for summer travel and adventure. Give us a call at 515-423-8185 or click HERE to schedule an appointment online.
