  • Vehicle tips

    • 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.

Testimonials

  • Thank you DJs for being there "once again" for me when needed. Yesterday my rear tire was rapidly going flat. I pulled into DJs late in the day. Though he was busy, Chris willingly took care of my car in minutes. You have been servicing my Honda for 14years. I feel so grateful to have a trusted, honest repair shop to bring my car for maintenance & repairs all these years. Thank you for your wonderful customer service!
    -Kathy M.

  • These guys are great! Dan (DJ), the owner, is the best. I recently limped into the shop with a flat tire on my BMW. They took me right away, put on my spare, ordered me a replacement tire, had my bent rim repaired and the new tire mounted and balanced within 24 hours! I also had the brakes on my wife's truck done there for LESS THAN HALF what the dealership quoted me. Quick, reliable, cost effective and great customer service!
    -James B.

  • I ordered tires from Tirerack and had them delivered to DJ's for install on my Nissan GTR. The service and work perfromed was great. I had an 8:30am appointment and was in and out very quickly. I really appreciated the honest and proffesional work done. I will absolutely recommend DJ's Auto for honest quotes and great work.
    -Michael J.

  • DJ's was great. I needed to get a uHaul for my business to pick up supplies and equipment down in Peoria. Chris went out of his way to find the best deal for me since I would be driving 400 miles in one day and also made the drop off easy for me so I would not have to come back during business hours the next day. Quick, Friendly, Reliable, and made my boss happy with the cost. Thanks!
    -Andrea R.

  • DJ's is a great place to have your vehicle repaired. Dan, Chris and Matt are very friendly, professional and honest. They really know how to take care of their customers. One time I went to a dealership for a "safety inspection check." They said my vehicle had an oil leak. And they were going to charge me thousands of dollars to make the repair on my 10 year old car. But because of the reviews online, my wife recommended I stop by DJ's to get a second opinion. Matt looked at the car and found absolutely nothing wrong. The issue was only some dry oil from a problem three years ago. Because of their honesty, I saved hundreds of dollars. DJ's will tell you if your car needs a repair or if it isn't necessary. They have always done a terrific job and I highly recommend them!
    -Alisa B.

  • I recently had some work done to my BMW at DJ's and was very impressed with their friendly and professional service. As a women it can be intimidating going to get your car serviced but I never felt that way here. Chris was very good at explaining things without talking down to me, like since I am not a man I could not possibly understand what he was saying. The guys are all nice looking, clean cut men, not greasy creepers like other places. The work on my car was done fast and the charges were very reasonable. I will definitely return and recommend them!
    -Lisse C.

  • U-Haul:
    The rep here was extremely helpful and make the process of returning the vehicle quick and easy. By the time I got home I had received a confirmation email on our return. VERY pleased with our experience, from start to finish.
    -Lucy H.

  • U-Haul:
    Service was really fast and very friendly and informative employee at the front desk. Will use your services again. Thank you!
    -Sigute H.

  • U-Haul:
    100% better experience than I had with Budget
    -Tom T.

  • U-Haul:
    They were very professional, it took less than 5 minutes to my truck. I'll highly recommend this location to all my friends.
    -Shaun Z.

  • Went here to get a set of tires installed (shipped from Tire Rack directly), and these guys were nothing but great. Gave me a call when the tires arrived and even squeezed made in at the very end of the day. Would absolutely recommend them on customer service alone.
    -Dave T.

  • I've been taking all of my cars to DJ's for well over 15 years, and I've had nothing but positive experience. Dan & his staff are quite knowledgeable & helpful. I've found prices to be fair & competitive, and they always go the extra mile to ensure that I'm satisfied.
    -Marty B.

  • I have only been coming here for about a year but DJ'S has fixed problems for me that my dealer didn't find in 4 attempts. My car has run great since then and now this is the only place that I will bring my car.
    -Anonymous

  • I have been bringing my vehicle as well as my wifes vehicle to D.J.s for quite some time. Everytime either the service manager Steve or Dan (the owner himself) has fully explained every situation thoroughly before I have authorized repairs. They have answered all of my questions with clear explainations. I just had 4 new tires installed at an unbelievable price and the truck is running great. Thanks again D.J.s!!
    -Anonymous

  • Very Professional Shop. Highest recommendation. I have been dealing with Dan ans Steve at DJ's for over 8 years and have always been impressed with their service. I have also recommended DJ's to friends and clients in the Schaumburg area and they have become loyal customers. Honest, organized, and friendly people!
    -Anonymous

  • I have been bringing my vehicle to DJ's for many years now and every visit is a great experience. They always take the time to explain why a certain repair needs to take place and they offer great prices. You can fully trust everyone that works at the shop. Dan and Steve are great. I recently had my SUV repaired here and while it was being worked on, Chris was able to follow up with me regarding the status of my vehicle being repaired. DJ's is definitely a place to bring your vehicle for an oil change or to get repaired. THANKS DJ'S!!!!!!
    -Anonymous

  • Very pleased and impressed with DJ's service over the last 5+ years. Dan has gained our trust through honest appraisals, super effecient repair time, numerous labor discounts, quality products at reasonable prices, and even a super reasonable loaner vehicle. Dan listens to our needs and takes the time to patiently and understandably explain and educate us on the repairs needed. He and his team honestly assess the priorities of our repairs needed and empathizes well with the hard economic times we are in. We enthusiastically recommend DJ's Auto Service Center!
    -Anonymous

  • DJ's Auto was recommended to me by a neighbor. All of my interactions validated that I'm glad he helped me discovered the team there. I presented them with a unique challenge and they well exceeded any expectations I had about how they'd be able to help. What I suspect most people want from an auto service entity is honest information and suggestions as though our car was their own and the money being spent was their own. I had the good pleasure of speaking with Dan and his team at length and can tell that this is their very approach. Make relationships for the haul not for a quick buck.
    -Anonymous

  • Just wanted to know if Chris is the manager? He was so helpful with all the question I had. He really knows his stuff. Great job.
