The Importance of Winterizing Your Vehicle

The Importance of Winterizing Your Vehicle

Even though Florida is known for its sunny, blue skies, we still have to prepare our vehicles for the upcoming winter. The team at Premier Auto Service Center is here to help! Upon arrival at our facility, we will perform a thorough inspection designed to uncover any underlying issues before they begin. This way, your vehicle will be ready to face whatever this upcoming winter has in store for you and your vehicle!    Winter is incredibly hard on the following components of your vehicle:    Battery: Both South Florida and winter can be hard on your battery -- cold weather makes your battery work that much harder, especially if your battery is older than four years old.  Coolant: During winter, you must have the right ratio of antifreeze and water in your vehicle at 50/50. If this ratio is off and there is more water in your cooling system, this liquid freezing likelihood is much more probable.  Tires: The drop in temperature can affect your vehicle ... read more

An Oil Change is a True Treat for Your Vehicle

When someone thinks of preventative maintenance, they can't help but think an oil change. It is the quintessential auto repair service, but you would be surprised to learn how many people forget about this service. The Premier Auto Service Center team is here to remind you about the importance of an oil change and which this service is such a treat for your vehicle.    Your engine is made up of several moving parts, and these parts need to be adequately lubricated, or other components of your engine can become damaged. Over time, a build-up of oil, dust, and debris from both your engine and environment starts to contaminate your oil. When this happens, your oil won't be able to lubricate your engine correctly. Proactively changing your oil keeps your engine running safely and smoothly. Routine oil changes have five key benefits:    An oil change will keep your engine lubricated.  Regular oil services keep your engine cool.  Proper oil changes al ... read more

The Color of Your Anti-Freeze Does Matter

The Color of Your Anti-Freeze Does Matter

Not all antifreeze is created equal -- you may have noticed that antifreeze (also known as coolant) comes in different colors. There are pink, orange, blue, and green engine coolants out there, and they all differ. All these colors make it complicated for car owners -- which coolant works best for my vehicle?    Green antifreeze may be the most common option, but it does not mean it is the best option for your vehicle. Green antifreeze is commonly used in cars produced domestically between 1920 and 1990. For example, if you own a GM, Ford, or Dodge produced between the 20s and the 90s, you will most likely find a green coolant in your engine. This type of coolant contains silicates and phosphate corrosion inhibitors to protect several metal parts in your engine, including your radiator and engine.    Newer vehicles have OAT antifreeze, which ranges from orange, red, blue, and dark green. This type of coolant does not have silicates or phosphates, but it does contain ... read more

It’s Love Bug Season! How To Prepare Your Vehicle

It’s Love Bug Season! How To Prepare Your Vehicle

Even though our lives may be a little different than how we expected them to be this month, Mother Nature is still in operation, and we are beginning to see those pesky love bugs out and about! Some of us may think these love bugs are quite cute and adorable, but they can wreak absolute havoc on our cars. Lovebugs are starting to make their Spring appearance, but there are steps we can take to make sure these highly-acidic bugs don’t show our cars too much of their love.  Here is how to combat the influx of love bugs:  For best results, wash them completely off your vehicle’s surface as soon as possible, as their acidity can quickly erode your car’s paint within days.

Why People Who Don’t Drive Much Still Need An Annual Inspection

Why People Who Don’t Drive Much Still Need An Annual Inspection

You may be surprised to learn that even if you live in SW Florida and don’t drive your vehicle very much, having your vehicle maintained once a year is a good idea to help keep your vehicle running better longer. Some manufacturers recommend once a year maintenance inspection, which is designed to prolong the longevity, driveability of your car, and a key component for preventative maintenance. If you are looking to keep your vehicle performing in tip-top shape for the long-term, maintenance inspection is a must, even if you don’t drive your car very much.  Did you know that the weather can affect your vehicle in a good and bad way? Especially when your car isn’t being driven often, the oil isn’t flowing; the tires are sitting, belts, and batteries don’t like the heat of SW Florida, the joints and lubricants are not operating. The more your car sits, the more these internal systems in your vehicle don’t like it. If you aren’t planning on ... read more

Our Community Involvement

Our Community Involvement

It all started at Target, when one of the owners of Premier Auto Service Center, Jocelyne Dauphinais, noticed that a poster about giving 5% of your purchase price to the school of your choice. This idea resonated with Jocelyne, especially when she saw that every school year, each of her children’s teachers would have for a list of items, hoping that the parents would help them.  Instead of volunteering, Jocelyne decided to ask the PTO, the principal, the teachers, and even the coaches to figure out the best way they could help the school and teachers. The team at Premier Auto Service Center strongly believes that if we help our teachers, we help everyone’s future. With that in mind, we decided the best way to help the schools would be to give the schools 5% of the sales of anyone who tells us they are from a school, whether they are parent, student, teacher, or grandparent. The proceeds are directly from our shop’s profits.  Jocelyne and the rest of t ... read more
