Happy Holidays from Accurate Automotive in Mesa, Arizona!
It truly is the most wonderful time of the year. As we take time to express gratitude for the year that is coming to a close this month we feel called to give back this holiday season. After taking some time to research charity organizations for the Holidays we learned about how many Americans are facing food insecurity and we knew we wanted to do our part to help.
This holiday season we are contributing to the United Food Bank by donating $1 for every oil change scheduled until the 25th of December. This one-dollar donation will be at no extra charge to you, so you can get your oil change off of our checklist and give back in the process! Your oil change donation can help provide five nutritious meals to those in need! So please help us make a difference in the lives of those who need it most.
Did you know that in Arizona, 798,790 people are facing hunger, and 269,610 of them are children? We are inviting you to call (480) 890-0409 and schedule an oil change. Together we can do our part to help reduce those numbers and support our community this Holiday Season.
The United Food Bank is a wonderful organization that distributes 52,000 meals daily. Their volunteer center is located close to downtown Mesa, Arizona; as is our shop. So we feel extra close to this organization and are grateful we are able to do our part with the help of our great community of customers like you.
We truly believe in “Freinds… serving friends” and would love for you to help us by calling (480) 890-0409 to schedule your oil change. While you are at our shop please add your name to our tree of those who have helped us raise money for the United Food Bank this holiday season.
We are located at 441 S Robson #101, Mesa, AZ 85210
With many Americans working remotely and driving less, there is a common misconception that vehicle service needs to happen less frequently. At Accurate Automotive we pride ourselves in educating our customers and treating them like “Friends… serving friends” and friends would not let other friends make mistakes that can cost them a lot of money.
It is important you keep your vehicle serviced and maintained even when you are not driving as much. Engine fluids are made up of chemical compositions and these chemicals break down over time so we recommend you check your vehicle’s manual and keep the schedule they suggest, even if you are driving less than in the past.
Oil is the lifeblood of your engine, and not changing it can result in very costly problems down the road. Schedule your oil change by calling our Accurate Automotive Shop at (480) 890-0409. While we are changing your oil we will check your other engine fluids and let you know what we find so you can keep your vehicle on the road safely and reliably.
You can trust us to offer you honest, quality vehicle service and repair at a price that’s fair.
We are a family-owned business since 1992 and we want to partner with you and take care of your vehicles for life so we value your trust and do what’s right for you every time.
We are located in the heart of Mesa, Arizona between Country Club and Broadway and we are happy to shuttle you home, to work, or to school while we diagnose, service, and repair your vehicle.
It’s the last week of October and the last week of Car Care Month! At Accurate Automotive every month is Car Care Month and we are here for you year-round! Whether you need regularly scheduled services such as oil changes, filter changes, or tire rotations or you have a major repair, Accurate Automotive is here for you since 1992.
Although, Car Care Month is coming to an end the Holiday season is just beginning! Many of us are planning road trips and we want to make your road trips more enjoyable! In addition to being your full-service, most make and model vehicle repair shop of choice we believe in “Friends… serving friends” and sharing tips to help you prepare in more than one way! Last week we published a blog titled “Five (5) things to prepare for a more enjoyable road trip” you can check it out here.
This week we are expanding on that list and sharing Five (5) things families can pack to make their road trips more enjoyable. We hope you find them helpful! If you have any tips that work for you and your family please share them in the comments below! We would love to learn what works for you and your families!
5 things to pack for your next family road trip:
Messes happen. Pack a Dust Pan and Brush or a Cordless Handheld vacuum to easily clean them on and move on swiftly.
If you have little ones you know keeping them safe, fed, and entertained requires options. A backseat car organizer is a great way to pack and house necessities for little ones. Examples of things you can pack include coloring books, crayons, an electronic device such as an iPad, tissues, a first aid kit, sunscreen, bug spray, stuffed animal friends, toys, and wipes.
Bring along a car Charger with multiple device outputs & Long Charging Cords. In last week’s blog, we talked about the importance of having multiple device outputs for road trips, but just as important is having a couple of long charging cords so you can charge your device while you watch a movie or listen to music while on the road.
Creature Comforts – At Accurate Automotive we understand having your vehicle in working order is essential but being comfortable in your vehicle is also important. When it comes to auto repair we call creature comforts things such as heating and AC, seat heaters, etc, but when it comes to road tripping creature comforts are things that make your trip more enjoyable for everyone traveling. Things like pillows for sleeping and lumbar support are great. Blankets, sweaters, socks, and other warming accessories are great for this Fall and upcoming Winter travel.
Cooler/Warmer for the Car with Drinks, Snacks, and Food. A cooler with drinks and colder snacks such as fruit and yogurt is a great way to pack healthier snacks. Lately, we have noticed people pack a cooler-warmer combo such as the one in the graphic above. This cooler is under $100 and has both cooling and warming effects that can be great for long road trips or those with specific dietary plans. We haven’t personally tried them but would love you to comment down below if you have and share your experience with us. Traveling by road is timeless but we love seeing the modern technology that makes it a more enjoyable experience for the whole family.
We hope you enjoyed our list of Five things to pack and bring on your next family road trip to make it more enjoyable!
We hope you found at least some of these tips useful on your next family road trip. If you have any tips that work for you and your family please share them in the comments below! We would love to learn what works for you and your families!
Remember that one of the best things you can do to prepare for your next family road trip is to have your vehicle serviced and maintained. Stay in control of your vehicle maintenance and keep your focus on family fun during your road trips and family vacations.

Along with being a full-service auto shop you can count on for all of your vehicle repairs we are a family-owned shop and value our trips with and to visit family. On these road trips, we have learned a thing or two that make road trips more enjoyable. Below you will find a list of five (5) things you can do to prepare and pack that will make your road trip more enjoyable.
Here are five (5) things to prepare for a more enjoyable road trip!
Have clear directions. Not only is it a good idea to have your destination address and roadmap prior to setting off on your next road trip, but it is also a good idea to get familiar with the path you are taking. Most of us know to have the destination address ready to add to our GPS but we recommend taking extra time to examine the road and consider having a map or printout of your directions just in case you have any technical issues. It is also a good idea to know where rest stops and gas stations are located.
Have an entertainment plan. Download an audiobook, your favorite music albums, or a few of your favorite podcasts to prepare for an enjoyable road trip. As you are exploring the open road you may find cell phone service is spotty so it’s a good idea to download entertainment. For extra brownie points, you could create a music playlist for the road trip and make memories with a special soundtrack you and your loved ones can reference in the future.
Have snacks and drinks. It’s important to stay hydrated and nourished on the road and gas stations don’t always have your favorite snacks so pack water and your favorite snacks.
Dress comfortably. Sitting in a vehicle for an extended amount of time is a lot more enjoyable when you’re dressed comfortably. Opt for comfortable fabrics, shoes, and remember your sunglasses. Keep your travel time in mind, rest stops, and what you plan to do when you arrive.
Stay Charged & Safe. Charge your devices before you leave on your road trip and consider packing a portable. Most people remember to pack a car charger for their electronic devices but forget a portable charger. A portable charger will help keep your device charged in case of an emergency such as a dead vehicle battery and enable you to call for help and stay entertained while help comes. A portable charger is also great to keep your devices charged while you take photos and make memories on your road trip and vacation!
We hope you enjoyed our tips to help you prepare for a more enjoyable road trip! Please let us know what you do to prepare for an enjoyable road trip in the comment section below.

Being in business since 1992 offers you a lot of experience. Especially when you start your business with strong values and a clear vision. Our vision started out as “Friends… serving friends”. We then expanded to offering “Honest, quality vehicle repair at a price that’s fair.” As our business expanded our offerings expanded but our values stayed strong. At Accurate Automotive we are proud to be a full-service, most-model vehicle repair shop.
We have learned a lot in thirty-plus years and growing our business from just Lee and myself, to now twelve full-time employees. We are happy to have created a business that serves our customers, our community, and our vision and mission to be of service.
This week on our social media we shared some reviews from our customers. We wanted to take the opportunity to share that video with you on our blog as well. We value our customer’s opinions and are grateful for everyone who takes the time to write us a review.
In the above graphic, you will find two additional reviews from our customers.
Here is what they had to say: “Treated me with far more respect than any other local repair places I’ve been to in the Phoenix area. Gave me a reasonable quote and the staff is very attentive and friendly. I already have plans to use their services again for a more major repair in the coming weeks. A bonus that I did not expect: They were willing to pick me up and drive me home while the vehicle was being repaired, specially given how bad gas prices are at the moment. Please tip these drives, it’s the least we can do for such good service, I was shocked when they offered and I didn’t even know how to reply.” Kraze P.
“Accurate Automotive goes above and beyond! I ended up needing over $9,000 worth of work and they did absolutely everything they could to get my insurance claim processes and even drove me home and picked us up! They’re very clear and worked with us so we could understand everything that’s going on with your repair work. Bonus; they’re family friendly and love animals🙏❤️”
Click on the link under the image below to see our latest video on Instagram where we feature these reviews:
In this video you will see two of our customer reviews. The first is from Daniel who says “I’m so grateful for the team at Accurate Automotive! They are the absolute best in servicing my vehicles, but even better yet, they are amazing people, honest, trustworthy, friendly, and kind. They take a genuine interest in their customers and know the value of developing relationships which separate them head and shoulders above their competition. Thank you Lee, Kelli, Eric, and the team, for the amazing job you all do, you’re THE BEST!!!”
Daniel, it has been an absolute pleasure to be of service to you on both the 2008 Honda and the 1969 Ford Truck!! Also, I would like to thank you for taking the time to leave our small business this wonderful 5-Star Review. We at Accurate Automotive, Inc, believe strongly that our business grows and prospers by doing the right thing and building relationships moving forward. Please know that we are hoping for peace and comfort to you and your family!! 🕊 Lee and Kelli Weatherby
The second review is from Colton who writes “Can’t say thank you enough! Our Audi Allroad broke down with a bad fuel pump and need a tow to a shop. Accurate Automotive was the highest-rated shop in my area so I decided to give them a shot and I’m so glad I did. Other shops I called said it could take 1-3 months but Accurate Automotive got the job done in 3 business days. Glad we found our new local shop. They didn’t upsell us on anything and fixed the problem quick and without a huge markup. Thanks again guys!”
Colton – THANK YOU so much for this 5 Star Review!! It was our pleasure to install the High-Pressure Fuel Pump and perform the Maintenance, Oil Change. Thank you for trusting us with your 2014 Audi A4. Drive carefully and be well till we see each other again. 🙏Lee and Kelli Weatherby
There are many reasons to keep your vehicle serviced and maintained. One of those reasons is to get the most out of your gas mileage.
At Accurate Automotive we want to help drivers stay knowledgable and in control of their vehicles. In this infographic we educate you on some facts about gas milage, please note these are general figures and each vehicle will vary.
Did you know that keeping your vehicle properly tuned can improve your gas mileage by 4%?
If you have a serious issue with your vehicle and have it fixed (we are happy to help you with that at Accurate Automotive) it can improve your gas mileage by 40%!
The correct tire pressure can improve your gas mileage by 3.3%.
Having the correct motor oil in your vehicle can improve your gas mileage by 1-2%.
Another important thing most drivers don’t think about is how important it is to have your engine serviced. With proper vehicle maintenance things like clogged air filters can be serviced and replaced to improve overall vehicle performance.
Do you have a missing or damaged gas cap? It is important to replace it with a properly working gas cap to prevent gas from vaporizing and escaping.
At Accurate Automotive we know our customers are smart and like to understand what is going on with their vehicles. We partner with our customers to help them understand what their vehicle issues are, and what we can do to fix them. We offer a multi-point inspection with photos of your vehicle so you can be in the know and stay in control of your vehicle.
All of our technicians are ASC Certified and happy to answer any questions you may have.
