  • I have been coming to Fausto's Power Garage for years, and have always found the service to be excellent. Saturn told me that my old Saturn would always burn a lot of oil. Fausto showed me what part needed to be replaced and fixed it. When my air-conditioning went out at 4:00 on a Friday, Fausto stayed late to get it fixed before the weekend. I can't say enough about the quality of their service.

  • This is a fantastic family owned Automotive Shop. Brianna, Fausto, Cory and the other fine technicians will treat you with the upmost care and service and they strive to accommodate those with busy schedules. Great service from start to finish with quality workmanship and fast and efficient delivery times. For the quality and valued minded customer, you won't find a better Automotive shop. They will have my continued business from now on.
    -Sam E.
  • Very honest and reasonable.
    -Andy A.
  • It is never easy finding a mechanic when you have an old air cooled volkswagen. Not only was Fausto's willing to do the work, but Fausto took extra time to track down parts that would save me some money. It's good to know that when I need a repair I will not have to keep trying different mechanics; I just need to call Fausto!
    -Scott B.
  • I was on my way home from work one day when I noticed my rear tire was very low. I called Briana to see if they could patch it up for me (it was 10 minutes to close). They didn't shy away from inviting me over?they were happy to help!
    -Danny G.
  • I?ve known Fausto for a few years now, even before I was one his customers. Good man, honest. That is reflected in the work he has done to both my vehicles.
    -David G.
  • Had a battery replaced under warranty. Extremely nice and no additional cost. Will be using these folks whenever I have auto repair issues.
    -Dan C.
  • I always prefer taking my car to a local shop instead of a dealership when possible, so I put a little effort into finding a good mechanic when I move to a new town. Fausto and Briana are friendly, helpful, and competent; and I haven't had a problem yet with the work done at the shop.
    -Josh Z.
  • Fausto and his team are great. Their integrity is outstanding. I highly recommend them ! !
    -Theresa C.
  • Very knowledgeable. No Surprises, they let you know up front what they find and allow you to decide what you want to do about the issue. Fast but thorough.
    -Michael D.
  • I like to support local mechanics they treat people right. Very honest & upfront about expected cost & what was going to be done. Answered the phone and called me with updates. They offer "Pickup & Dropoff" service for customers. Really convenient since I'm new in town and no one to pick me up. Also never used Uber before so it worked out. Would "HIGHLY RECOMMEND"!!! ;-)
    -Leon B.

    -Melissa B.
  • Great knowledgeable staff. Fausto is great to work with. I will be back.
    -Rodney K.
  • Having car trouble is never fun but when I go to Fausto's I know I'll get quick reliable service and a ride to where I need to be so it doesn't interrupt my whole day.
    -Erica M.
  • Very friendly place people are super nice work is done quickly and meticulously.
    -Eleanor H.
  • I have to say that my requirements for a repair shop are very extreme due to the purpose my vehicles serve . I usually run around 100,000 miles a year and needless to say .... Maintenance is a very important element of my livelihood. I'm consequently glad to have a repair shop like fausto's power garage on my side. Thanks!
    -Mark H.
  • We take all four of cars to Fausto's! When we first relocated here, I stopped in with a dented bumper that met our garage door. Fausto kindly told me which body shop he would recommend, insisted on punching it out and wouldn't take a penny. As a woman, who takes my car (and now my kids' cars) for repairs, it is most important for me to trust my mechanics. Four years later, Fausto and his amazing team of mechanics, organized by the amazing Briana in the office are the ONLY ones to touch our family vehicles. I can't say enough good things!
    -Katherine W.
  • I took my 2011 Jeep patriot to Brianna and Fausto. I trust them explicitly! They are both Very knowledgeable as is the rest of their staff. Brianna, at the front desk, is just as friendly at the end of the day as beginning of a day. She is such a delight.

HELPFUL INFO

Are You Ready For The Road?

An average of 13,000 Americans are killed between Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day, some as a result of unperformed vehicle maintenance, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Each year, neglected maintenance leads to more than 2,600 deaths, nearly 100,000 disabling injuries and more than $2 billion in lost wages, medical expenses and property damage.

Most mechanical failures can be traced to neglected maintenance. For example, the U. S. Department of Transportation reports the leading cause of mechanical breakdown on our nation's highways is overheating, a condition that is easily avoidable. Other deficiencies that are simple to detect include low antifreeze/coolant, worn or loose drive belts and defective cooling system hoses.

Checking tire pressure and inflating a tire costs nothing, yet an average of 21 percent of cars inspected in check lanes during National Car Care Month have under inflated tires. This can lead to a blowout and a serious accident.

Fuel Saving Tips

Condition Effect MPG Penalty up to
Under inflated tires Increase rolling resistance 1-2mpg
Dirty air filter Causes excessively rich fuel/air mixture 2.0mpg
Worn spark plugs Cause inefficient combustion, wasted fuel 2.0mpg
Worn O2 sensor Unable to detect and adjust air/fuel mixture 3mpg
Dirty or substandard engine oil Increases internal engine friction 0.4mpg
Loose gas cap Allows fuel to evaporate 2.0mpg
Potential loss in fuel economy if all of the above were neglected
11.4mpg

The Car Care Council offers these fuel-saving tips:

  1. Vehicle gas caps -- About 17 percent of the vehicles on the roads have gas caps that are either damaged, loose or are 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 the parking brake on and 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 a lot of heat and electrical and chemical erosion. A dirty spark plug causes misfiring, which wastes fuel. Spark plugs need to be replaced as recommended by the manufacturer.
  4. Dirty air filters -- An air filter that is clogged with dirt, dust and bugs chokes off the air and creates a "rich" mixture -- too much gas being burned for the amount of air, which wastes gas and causes the engine to lose power. Replacing a clogged air filter can improve gas mileage by as much as 10 percent, saving about 20 cents a gallon.

Fuel-saving driving tips include:

  • Don't be an aggressive driver -- Aggressive driving can lower gas mileage by as much as 33 percent on the highway and 5 percent on city streets, which results in 10 to 66 cents per gallon.
  • Avoid excessive idling -- Sitting idle gets zero miles per gallon. Letting the vehicle warm up for one to two minutes is sufficient.
  • Observe the speed limit -- Gas mileage decreases rapidly at speeds above 60 mph. Each mpg driven over 60 will result in an additional 10 cents per gallon. To maintain a constant speed on the highway, cruise control is recommended.

WIPERS - In the 2001National Car Care Month vehicle check lanes, 21percent of participants had wipers that smeared, streaked or chattered across their windshields. Although climates vary, wipers generally need replacing every six months. An easy reminder is to change wiper blades in the spring and fall when you change your clock. Be sure the windshield washers are working properly, too, and keep the reservoir filled with solvent.

LIGHTING - Another important pre-trip check should be exterior and interior lighting. Vehicle check lanes revealed an overall failure rate of over 25 percent in the lighting category. The Car Care Council reminds motorists to check their lights monthly. Other suggestions from the Council include turning on headlights both day and night. This helps define your car's position on the road, and its distance from other drivers. When your vehicle's lighting is defective, other motorists may not get the message that you intend to stop or turn. The end result could be disastrous.

10 Minute Pre-Trip Checkup Can Pay Off

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

  • Check all fluids. There are several fluids, in addition to antifreeze, that require attention, including engine oil, power steering, brake and transmission fluids and windshield washer solvent and antifreeze/coolant.
  • Check hoses and belts. A belt that fails can affect the electrical system, air conditioning and power steering, as well as the cooling system. Cooling system hoses may be deteriorating from within, so old hoses and clamps in marginal condition might need to be replaced.
  • 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.

"While a last minute checkup is better than no checkup, motorists should plan ahead to allow time to perform necessary maintenance themselves or at the local service facility. A properly maintained vehicle is safer and more dependable and will even save a few dollars at the gas pumps," said the Car Care Council's Executive Director, Rich White.

Not only can a pre-trip inspection help reduce chances of costly and possibly dangerous road trouble, it also provides an opportunity to have repairs made at home, with one's own technician who knows the vehicle. Especially important, it provides peace of mind. While no inspection can guarantee a car's performance, it's comforting to know proper precautions were taken.
