    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.

    Really nice people!!
    , 01/11/2020

    Quality service at an affordable price. I went here last time I needed to get my 95K mile routine maintenance done. I ended up waiting for 2 hours because they had a lot of customers in the morning but overall they saved me 100 dollars compared to if I had gone to the Toyota dealership to get my car serviced.
    , 01/11/2020

    Nice people good service.
    , 11/30/2019

    I've been going to Steve at Duty Tire for years and it is always the best service, no non-sense and excellent labor at a fair price.
    , 10/26/2019

    They are honest, reasonable and have great customer service.
    , 10/24/2019

    I can't put into words the level of service I've gotten here. I moved to Raleigh in 2014 from Eastern NC, and I've always been particular about choosing mechanics and who works on my vehicles. However, Steve and his crew there have always provided the most excellent service. They've done brakes, suspension work, and odds n ends on a few of my vehicles. Always quick and friendly, with a pleasant and friendly waiting area, this place is truly what all auto service centers should be. I would recommended them to anyone looking for a shop where they'll treat you right.
    , 09/18/2019

    Awesome service! They are Big sports fans and I always seem to meet awesome people while I'm waiting for my car to get done! Family operated since day uno! Don't see that much anymore! Keep Rocking Steve & Kevin! Go PACK!

    , 07/31/2017

    Good bunch of guys
    , 11/21/2017

    I take my vehicle there because I trust Steve and his team. He is honest and straight forward about what needs to be done to take care of the vehicle. Pricing is fair and you can trust they will do a good job.
    , 12/18/2017

    My son and I drove over 4 hours to look at a vehicle at a dealership close to this shop. We decided at the last moment to take the car here for a quick review to see if they spotted anything majorly wrong. The shop was very busy but when I explained the situation the gentleman said he would get someone to look at the car. The mechanic test drove the car and put it on their lift to ensure he was able to see anything wrong under the car. He then informed us of a small minor leak under the vehicle and said the car was definitely worth what the dealership was asking. I thanked him very much for his time and went into the shop to pay. They said the charge was $18, so I paid them $25 and he said he was giving the additional to the mechanic that helped my son and I. I truly wish this shop was closer to my home because I would make them my trusted mechanic! I highly recommend this honest and trustworthy shop for all your auto repair needs!
    , 01/09/2018

    Steve has always shot me straight and keeps my cars in tip top shape. Even though I've moved almost to Durham, I still make the trip to Duty when I need something done. Cannot recommend them enough.

    , 07/11/2018

    Perfect staff! I love the mom and pop feel about this place versus chained shops that only care about the almighty dollar. They want to keep you safe without pressuring you to buy/fix unnecessary things.
    , 07/28/2018

    I've been going to Duty tire in North raliegh for years. Now that I moved south of raliegh it was going to be harder to get up there. Steve Duty is just as good as his brother. Service is excellent! They are always busy for a reason. Steve and Dave are both passionate about their customers, honest, very fair, and go the extra mile!
    , 08/01/2018

    Best place I've had! Their honest and treat you like family! I've been dealing with them for over 5 years!
    , 08/09/2018

    I go to Duty Tire & Service Center because I know I'll get an honest diagnosis at an extremely fair price. I started going there when I had issues with my 12 y/o Jeep Compass that was on the fritz. Steve Duty gave me his honest opinion - the kind I'd expect from a friend. At a vulnerable decision-making point with my Jeep, he gave me the information & advice I needed to finally let it go. Many mechanics wouldn't & could've used it to their advantage to make a buck, but not Steve. I've since purchased a newer vehicle & brought it here for brakes - fully ceramic - at a phenomenal price (lower than what nearby shops charge for semi-metallic)! Other than the above - what I enjoy is seeing Duty's care for the community - from their Free Bread (offered daily) to sponsoring & coaching Little League Baseball (they have the cutest team pictures mounted on the walls). I'm happy I came across them and they are now my trusted mechanics.
    , 09/13/2018

    Great guys, had us fixed up and on the road in no time.
    , 10/02/2018

    Have been going other for years, and they're very professional. Will take care of your car, and they're open till 6 pm.
    , 10/13/2018

    We've had our vehicles serviced not long after we moved to Garner in 1989. I trust Steve and the crew to be fair and honest about what is the best value for our service requirements. Period.
    , 11/02/2018

    I get my oil changes here and I've had other work done to vehicle here as well and I have a Hyundai so it's difficult to work on but Duty & Kevin get right on it and get me squared away as soon as they can!!!! WONDERFUL place to go to for car work and you feel right at home there too!!!!
    , 11/08/2018

    I used to live across the street from this shop. I've moved to the other side of the county now and still drive to have all my vehicle work done here. Honest guys who won't sell you what you don't need. They do work the right way the first time.
    , 12/03/2018

    Can't say enough good things about Duty Tire. I have a very troubled vehicle to say the least, and these guys are there for the rescue every time. And for even the every day stuff from oil changes, tires, to wheel bearings and more, their timeliness, service and prices cannot be beat. So very happy we found these guys!
    , 12/17/2018

    Love how helpful, direct, and honest this shop is. They truly are the absolute best!
    , 01/03/2019

    Great people very knowledgeable and would definitely come back again. One of the few places you feel welcomed not just for your money. If Keith is assigned to your car you?re lucky. He has a great work ethic and goes above and beyond.

    Honest service. Does great work!

    We have gone here for years and always get fast, fair and friendly service. Steve Duty is a good man and we love supporting a local, family business.
    , 09/04/2019

    Great place to take your vehicles for tires, inspections and/or mechanical problems. Lots of very experienced mechanics and very trustworthy. I've been taking my cars there for about 10 years now. David Duty cares. Thanks again David!
    These guys are really terrific! They're fair and honest. If they weren't they would not have such a huge customer base. Talk to Chris. He's very helpful.
    Great Service. I showed up on the wrong day and time. They did not make me feel bad. They fit me in and got me out quick. They also told me honestly what the best tires would be, and which ones they use on their own cars. Could not be happier! I will be going there from now on.
    Great, quick service! Reasonable prices. Professional, trustworthy and knowledgeable staff. Oh, and they always answer the phone when you call - WOW!
    Excellent service and even friendlier staff. They were extremely pleasant to work with, understanding, and flexible. I highly recommend Duty for your auto services.
    These guys are the best service shop in Raleigh. Super friendly staff that are knowledgeable and will tell you exactly what's wrong.
    Quickly assisted me and tightened a loose connection to the POS terminal and sent me on my way free of charge. My friend Dustin referred me to this place and I'm glad he did. Mathew and the other mechanics did great work. Hopefully this fixes the connection problems I've been having.
    Honest and experienced. You'll never go to another shop once you've dealt with Dave and Chris. Thanks for always looking out for me guys!
    This is my go to place for my car maintenance! If something unexpected happens to my car, I'll definitely take it there and I know they will do it right at the right price! Honest trustworthy, and friendly staff!
    I have been going to Duty Tire for 15 plus years. Honest, dependable, and actually fun to be around. The interplay between Dave, Chris, staff and customers is fun and enjoyable to watch. You can tell they enjoy their work and their ability to take care of their customers and their vehicles.
