    What People Say About Us


    • -Art K.

      Good job on the new motor, thanks for the extra wiring and a nice paint job on the engine - it matched the exterior well.


    • -Stephanie W.

      Excellent service, much better than taking a vehicle in to the dealer! These guys know their stuff, and are friendly and very reasonable charges.


    • -Suzanne B.

      I have gone to Snider's for several years now. They are knowledgeable, courteous and fair priced. Being able to fully trust them doing my automobile repairs is truly a blessing! Thank you for a job that's always over the top!


    • -Bella E.

      I live in Marquette Mi and was quoted almost $600 for a radiator and serpentine belt. I called Snider's because I was coming to town for vacation. I was able to get in the next day, save over $200 dollars and have peace of mind to be able to make the trip back up home. Thank you so much.


    • -Chris M.

      I was an out-of-towner who walked in with fuel leak. They took a look, got parts quickly, and had me back on the road the same afternoon. Good service.


    • -Heather H.

      Great service, great customer service.


    • -Ronnie M.

      The owners here are caring and really treat their customers with respect. Above all they are HONEST! This is a great family run business.


    • -Mike H.

      Great place to get your vehicle serviced. Ken and his staff are great!


    • -Tim S.

      Great local car repair facility! I highly recommend them!


    • -Eloy N.

      This place is awesome! I came in at 4:30 (they close at 5pm), and the mechanic Scott said he would stay and work on my truck! He also waited for the part to arrive. They went above and beyond to find the part that I needed to get me back on the road. If I could give it more than five stars I would!

  • 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.
