I highly recommend Pro Tune Plus based on my experience. I was driving from Virginia to Saskatchewan in January and my AWD system in my volvo xc 70 failed. I was stuck in a strange town and unsure of where to take my car. Both AAA and the staff at the Marriott Residence Inn seemed to think Pro Tune Plus would be decent. I was more than impressed with their service and the options offered in getting me back on the road. They did a great job; show impeccable attention to detail; and understood my need to get my car fixed and back to grad school quickly and cheaply. Fixing a Volvo in an area where there aren't alot of Volvos was scary for me but it worked out great!
Excellent service! I went here to get my car checked before I moved back home and it was one of the best car services I've ever had. Joe was affable, professional, and efficient in his work. It didn't take long for the service to be finished, and he even put on some zip ties on the front of my ripped bumper to prevent it from getting damaged on the long ride home-for free! If you want quality service that's fast and professional, I highly recommend Pro Tune Plus.
Absolutely incredible. Pro Tune Plus came through hard for us on our travels. We broke down in ND, are from Canada and Joe, Pat, Mayson and Nathan were the real MVP's who got us fixed up and back on the road in no time at all. Each one of them were SO compassionate, empathetic and did everything in their power to help myself and my friend get back on the road as quickly and safely as possible. Everything from personally driving us around town, and personally offering up a place for us to stay. Their efficiency and mechanic work is second to none and I would recommend ANYONE to not only get their vehicle fixed by Pro Tune Plus but to also even just have the pleasure of meeting these incredibly kind people. It was the best of a crappy situation to have had them come along our path. They give me faith in humanity and I from the bottom of my heart can't even put into words how wonderful of a business Pro Tune Plus is. Number one in North Dakota by a long stretch.
Saved my Duck Hunt! Great people. Accommodated my two dogs while they fixed my van. Got me back on the road and had no further problems. I highly recommend this group for any travelers with car or truck problems.
Service was awesome and if you haven't been here I recommend giving them a try. They were courteous and very professional. They diagnosed the problem and fixed it right the first time every time I have been here.
Joe and the staff were fantastic! We were on a road trip on a time schedule and got to the shop later in the day. Without asking, Joe stayed an extra 45 minutes after hours so that we could continue with our trip. We even got to play some old school NES as we waited.
What a great place! Got me in so fast. Was happy with all the work done for me. Such nice guys to know. Highly Recommend them.
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.
