April is National Car Care Month!

Happy April, we welcome you to John's Automotive Care La Mesa's monthly blog. This month is National Car Care Month; we care about you and your car. We at John's Automotive Care in La Mesa, California, want to help you keep your vehicle in tip-top shape while driving on the road for many more years. Why do we celebrate National Car Care month? Well, we at John's Automotive Care La Mesa celebrate this month because taking care of your car is our specialty! We love preventative maintenance and taking care of your vehicle. 

Preventative Maintenance 

At John's Automotive Care, we understand the importance of proper vehicle maintenance to ensure optimal performance and longevity. Our comprehensive preventive maintenance services cover critical areas such as fluid checks and inspections, adhering to manufacturer-recommended maintenance schedules. For instance, for Honda Civics between 15,000 and 105,000 miles, we recommend replacing the transmission fluid, conducting undercarriage checks, and re-torquing the driveshaft bolts, as per Honda's maintenance logs. Our focus on preventive maintenance ensures that your vehicle remains in top condition and minimizes the risk of costly repairs down the road. Trust us to help keep your car running smoothly and efficiently for years to come.

Vehicle Repairs

At John's Automotive Care La Mesa, we understand that life can get in the way of proper vehicle maintenance. However, postponing preventive maintenance can put both you and your vehicle at risk of potential safety hazards. That's why we recommend scheduling a visit to our facility to get your vehicle's preventive maintenance up to date. Even if you've been diligent about following your vehicle's recommended maintenance schedule, unforeseen issues can still occur. While preventive maintenance reduces the likelihood of unexpected breakdowns and repairs, it does not guarantee that your vehicle is invincible. Our team of experts can help identify and address any potential issues, ensuring that your car remains safe and reliable. Trust us to keep you on the road safely and confidently.

Vehicle Detailing 

April is National Car Care Month, and at John's Automotive Care, we want you to prioritize the safety and comfort of both yourself and your vehicle while on the road. One way to achieve this is by scheduling an interior and exterior detail for your car. Why is detailing your vehicle important? Research indicates that preserving your vehicle's appearance both inside and out helps to protect your paint from everyday debris such as dirt, bugs, and bird droppings. Over time, exposure to these common elements can gradually eat away at your vehicle's paint, reducing its overall value. Additionally, studies have shown that individuals who spend time in a clean and uncluttered car are less prone to stress, leading to an overall improved state of well-being. Trust us to help you show your car some love and keep it looking and feeling its best.

Tire Rotations

At John's Automotive Care, we want you to create lasting memories with your vehicle this year. However, to do so, it's important to ensure that your car has road-worthy tires to keep you and your passengers safe on the road. Driving on tires below road safety standards increases the risk of accidents and damage to your vehicle. Low tire tread reduces your vehicle's stopping power, making it difficult to brake effectively, especially in emergency situations. Regular tire rotations can help maintain the life of your tires, as we've observed that the wheels that push the vehicle tend to wear out faster. For instance, in a rear-wheel drive vehicle, the rear tires wear out faster than the front tires. Trust us to help keep your vehicle's tires in top condition, ensuring that you enjoy a safe and smooth ride for miles to come.


At John's Automotive Care La Mesa, we are here for you and your vehicle. We want your car to last forever and want to do the maintenance to allow it to. If you need help remembering the last time you checked your oil, saw dirty oil, rotated your tires, or had your previous preventative maintenance done, please schedule an appointment immediately. Visit us at John's Automotive Care in La Mesa. We are here to help you with all of your auto repair needs! Call us today or online, so we can take great care of you, and your vehicle with our expert ASE Certified auto mechanics.
