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.
Anthony has a great team that cares about you and your vehicle. I have had 2 vehicles serviced and I am very happy with results. The technicians do quality work with attention to details.
Stopped in to get an estimate for a brake job. Had a lot of miles on my car and had never changed the brake pads. Was not having trouble, but it seemed way overdue and had a trip planned. I had gotten a few estimates that were just plain unreasonable. Decided to leave it to get the work done when Anthony gave me a very reasonable detailed estimate. Anthony called me in a half hour to let me know the job was actually not needed. Everything was still within spec. Suggested recheck in 8K miles. I did pay a small fee for his time on the check. But he did raise the vehicle and check it all out. It was more than fair. Seems like a great place to me. Very competent and fair in price. Everybody there was pleasant and helpful. I hope they do well there. I will be back.
Perfect service, excellent pricing, trustworthy company. Very clean and organized. Very friendly staff. Pop even washed my car for me. I appreciate them. They got my car fixed when the check engine light was on when every other shop in the area couldn't see me for 2-3 more days.
Competent work, fair price. They have a shuttle for locals. And when you pick up your car it's been washed.
I like Goss' garage because they are one of very few places that will install customer parts. The service staff were very friendly and detail oriented on all my service requests. Prices are fair, I will definitely be coming back
I have two cars with over 100K miles and I trust both of them to Goss II. Goss II is a friendly environment where customer service is clearly a priority and passion. The mechanics know what they are doing, the prices are reasonable and everything is clearly explained without any pressure. It's refreshing to still see a small business filled with people who care so much about doing good work and taking care of customers.
We were long time (20+ years) customers of the original Goss' Garage in Lanham, and were glad to see a second shop open up in Gambrills. The staff is outstanding and strives to provide true customer service every day. Their technicians are hand-picked and have extensive training, so there has never been any question about the quality of work being performed. They can be trusted to provide outstanding service for every make and model of car and truck!
I went in on a Friday with loud noses coming from my car. I assumed it was my brakes, and lo and behold it was... along with my front axle rod and dry rotted tires. It was so bad they deemed it undrivable! I came in very late before closing and they were nice enough to squeeze me in; they probably saved me and my daughter's life. Speaking of my daughter she loved the place, and everyone was so nice to her... she asked to go back again. They had my car ready by Monday, and even put gas in it. Goss' garage has a new customer for life. Mick and the team were the best!
