I have known Phil for years and there is nobody better to care for your car and auto needs than D&H Auto. They are professional, knowledgeable, efficient, I've always helped me no matter how big or small my issue is. Other thing I like about them is that they are independently owned and operated service center. There's nobody better than D&H Auto!! I recommend them without hesitation! Five stars all the way!!

I would recommend this shop to anyone!
Pinckney, MII had a great experience at this shop. The guys were great at explaining what I needed and my car was repaired quickly. Dave at the desk was extremely helpful and made me feel confident and comfortable leaving my car there for repairs. I would recommend this shop to anyone!
Very friendly and professional! A part was needed to get me up and running and it was delivered within the hour! Highly recommended these guys.
These guys are the best in business! Any job that I cannot do due to lack of equipment I hand off to these professional! They have changed and engine and a transmission for me! You cannot beat the quality of their work or their prices!!!! They are honest and straight forward. That is hard to find!!!
I started to take my car here a few years ago on recommendation from a co-worker and never looked back. D&H kept the car running until I had enough money saved for a new one. As long as I live in the area I won't take my car anywhere else. I am a newly graduated college student and they always work within my budget and I cannot say how much I appreciate that. If you are looking to get work done I would whole heartily recommend coming here! Thanks guys for all you do!
- 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.
