The ONLY place I will have any of my vehicles worked on! Expertise, Reliabilty, Great Communication, Time Sensitive, Friendly, Honest, Family Owned and Operated, are just a few reasons Darrell's is my CHOICE! They were definitely the best part of a bad situation when it came to repairs on my car!
Wonderful honest people that do an excellent job! Darrell's is the only place I would allow to work on our vehicles!
Only people that work on my vehicles. Hands down the best!
Wonderful service and wonderful people. THE place I trust to work on my cars.
Been using Darrell's FOR YEARS. They've got a VERY knowledgeable crew and are VERY nice!
We've been taking our vehicles to Darrell's for over 11years. They've always done a great job! They explain their work, costs are fair and the turnaround time is pretty quick. My only wish is that they were open on Saturdays. Their hours are Mon - Fri 7am to 5pm. I definitely recommend Darrell's!
I have used Darrell's on multiple occasions to fix our vehicles. They have been upfront, honest and way less expensive than other repair shops. I once had my car towed to the dealership by mistake. Their quote was $1600 to replace one part and another $2200 for another fix. I called Darrell's asking for an estimate. They gave me a ballpark over the phone, $1000 and $1400 respectively. They towed my car to their shop, inspected the work, and lowered their initial quote by nearly $200!!!! They have always been willing to discuss options, new vs rebuilt, and the pros and cons. I felt I was a part of the decision which is important when making investments in cars that you may not be keeping for much longer.
Wonderful service. I consistently get my oil changed here, and anything else my outback needs. I don't trust anyone else with my car. Love supporting this local mechanic vs. large corporation chains that will lie, and do anything to get an extra dollar in their pockets. My husband grew up with this family, and they are absolutely amazing people.
Knowledgeable experts, kind, competent, fair, and honest. I don't think about going anywhere else. They take care of my 17 year old Navigator that has 230, 000 miles on it.
Nice, honest to women. Will call my husband if I need them to.
Very skilled knowledgeable mechanics.
So glad a friend of mine recommended Darrell's Auto Electric. I love supporting a local family owed business and every time you go you see the same faces. Very friendly people!
I've used them in the past ALONG with my bro and they do great work! No complaints from this family!
Glad i finally found a honest mechanic! I've taken my car to a lot of places and wasted a lot of money and finally my car is fixed! Definitely recommend!!
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.
