Thank You For Your Business!

Thank You For Your Business!

Hello, After 29 years of owning Fairway Auto Repair, I have made the difficult decision to retire. May 22nd will be our last day. This has certainly been a difficult decision.  We have a lot of people who trust and depend on us to help them make the right decisions for their car or truck, but the physical issues I have been dealing with this past year and a half; the impending GCU property sale and now, this virus and its effect on my business have been my retirement prompts. Trying to find a replacement shop that my customers can call home, and a home for Jeremiah, my trusted employee has been a priority for me. There are several shops that I have referred customers to. Each shop has been a top shop that I trust. One of those shops has stood out from the rest; Larry Harker Auto Repair http://www.lharepair.com/. (602) 278-5558. Bob, Ellen and the crew at Larry Harker have similar customer service, and vehicle service and repair ideals that we have at Fairway. They are located t ... read more

Help Your Car Keep Its Vitality!

Help Your Car Keep Its Vitality!

Our vehicles are so important to us so it is important that we don’t take them for granted!  Here are a few things that Fairway Auto Repair recommends our customers have us check when they bring their cars in for service.  Lights - These are often overlooked.  Headlights, brake lights, turn signals and taillights are all vital to our safety! Brakes – Brake pads need to be replaced now and then.  If they go bad…you don’t stop when you need to! Tire Pressure – Over-inflated or under-inflated damages the tire and shortens their life.  Tire pressures need to be just right!  Having a flat tire is not only an inconvenience, it can be dangerous too! Tire Tread – if your tread is worn, or if your tires have lumps or bumps you could slip and slide (no ice needed) and even have a blowout!  This could cause an accident! Power Steering Fluid – Trying to drive a car without power steering is almost impossible.  ... read more

Today's Tune-Up

Today's Tune-Up

Today we often refer to a 30,000-mile checkup as a “major service” that needs to be done as a routine job every two years or 30,000 miles to keep a car running at peak efficiency. Many years ago it was referred to as a tune-up! When consumers in Phoenix call around for pricing on this service they are often amazed at the dramatic price differences being quoted.  This is mainly due to the fact that different shops view the “tune-up” or “major service” in a variety of ways.  A tune-up should always include a fuel filter, spark plugs, air filter, PCV filter, distributor ignition rotor and of course, the labor charges.  We let our customers know that: Just replacing the spark plugs is not a true tune up. They are a good indicator of an engine’s condition, however.  Changing the plugs prevents them from seizing in the block.  This seizing would cause expensive repairs to occur. The distributor cap and rotor are usually m ... read more
