“Friends… serving friends” has been our motto since we first opened our full-service auto shop in 1992. Now 31 years later, we are still operating with the same family principles and are proud to be Five-Star Rated and have over 350 Google Reviews. 


Just this week we received a Top-Rated Service Center for 2022! Since our mission is to offer you honest, quality vehicle repair at a price that’s fair, and getting designations like these help us see we are meeting our mission. Thank You. 


In order to continue to serve you in this blog post we are sharing a bit about brakes.


Every single driver on the road should know for certain just how important it is to take their car in for a regular brake inspection. Mesa AZ is home to Accurate Automotive, which would like to provide drivers with some valuable insight into why regular brake inspections are so important. Accurate Automotive is firm in the opinion that knowledge is power when it comes to car repair and maintenance. It is precisely this philosophy that motivates Accurate Automotive to share this article on brakes with East Valley drivers. Drivers should take a moment to peruse this article so that they may better understand their brakes.


First of all, when it comes to the functionality and safety of a car, there is little that is more important than the brakes. A car with bad brakes is extremely dangerous. It doesn’t take much to understand that a fast-moving car without the capacity to stop is a recipe for disaster. The best way for drivers to avoid such a situation is to stay on top of proper brake maintenance. After all, if drivers do not maintain their brakes personally, then who will? And not only is maintaining brakes important to driver safety, but it is important to the safety of every other driver and pedestrian on the road.


It is critical for drivers to have their brakes looked at if they hear anything out of the ordinary when they apply pressure to their brakes.

Most often, the sound that raises concern for drivers is that of metal rubbing on metal. This sound can indicate any number of issues. For instance, it might be that the brake caliper mounting bolts have gotten loose. Or there may be an issue with the rotor surfaces. Or it may be that your brake pads need replacing. The important thing is that you need to have somebody check your brakes who knows precisely what to look for. Only a trusted technician should examine a car’s brakes, as drivers do not want anything overlooked.


Brakes need servicing for a number of reasons. Most commonly, just regular use of the brakes gives cause for regular maintenance. Simply using the brakes wears down the pads so regular brake pad replacement becomes a necessity. Brake pads also become problematic and may require replacing if they become soaked with oil or gas. Likewise, rust causes problems and brakes may need to be replaced if rust has set in. Drivers will generally be able to feel when there are problems with their brakes because the car will not slow down as smoothly as it should.


If any noticeable decrease in stopping power is observed, drivers should immediately seek attention for their brakes.


Even drivers who do not notice any problems with their brakes should take their cars in for a brake inspection at least once a year. When so much rests on the proper functioning of the brakes, drivers simply cannot afford to forego regular brake inspection. Mesa AZ residents are in luck because Accurate Automotive provides the best in brake service and repair. With over 31 years in the business, Accurate Automotive has developed a reputation for customer service and affordable rates.


We appreciate your support over the years! If you are new to Arizona or are just in need of a vehicle repair shop we want to help. Accurate Automotive offers honest, quality vehicle repair at a price that’s fair. We have been in Mesa, Arizona since 1992 and are happy to offer you a free ride home while we diagnose and repair your vehicle. 


Thank you for taking the time to read our blog. We hope we helped take some of the mystery out of vehicle service and repair.

Proper Vehicle Maintenance Builds Longevity


While it is generally not something that car and truck owners enjoy, vehicle maintenance builds longevity and is thus something every driver should practice.

Many drivers purchase a new car and only take it in for service if and when issues arise. The trouble with this is that by the time a problem is noticeable, the vehicle has likely undergone a burdening amount of wear and tear. By properly maintaining a vehicle, drivers can prevent expensive repairs. In short, practicing vehicle maintenance is a small investment to make for the benefit of prolonging the life of a vehicle. Accurate Automotive is there for Mesa drivers, and gladly takes this opportunity to provide a little insight on vehicle maintenance.

The first place drivers should turn to for advice on vehicle maintenance is the owner’s manual of their vehicle.

The manual will provide a schedule of recommended maintenance steps that drivers can follow. By following this schedule, drivers can ensure that they get the maximum use out of their vehicles.


The following are a few of the maintenance steps that drivers all too frequently overlook.

Replacing the vehicle’s air filter. Failing to regularly perform this maintenance step can cause serious problems with the vehicle’s engine, which will result in a costly repair bill. Simply replacing the filter on a scheduled basis will go a long way to increasing a car’s longevity.
Cleaning the battery posts and cables. When dirt and grime accumulate on battery posts – which inevitably happens – it can prevent the vehicle from starting. Periodically checking the posts and cables is a good idea for all drivers.
Checking the vehicle’s belts. Belts that are worn or loose can lead to serious problems. And the simple fact that belts are working constantly while a car is running leads to normal wear and tear. This problem can be remedied by simply replacing them as recommended by the vehicle manufacturer. The technicians at Accurate Automotive can help with this.

Checking the vehicle’s brake pads. All too commonly drivers wait until they hear unusual noises coming from the brakes before checking the pads.

This can lead to more costly problems. Drivers who stay on top of brake pad replacement can save money on brakes in the long run.
Checking the vehicle’s fuel filter. A fuel filter that requires replacement can lead to problems such as poor fuel economy and engine problems. Simply replacing the filter does a lot for the performance of a vehicle.
Replacing spark plugs. Spark plugs must fire properly in order for the vehicle to run optimally. They are cheap to replace and should be replaced before they wear out.
Checking tire pressure and tread. Tires should be replaced before they become dangerous. Moreover, the tire pressure should be checked routinely to prevent uneven wear and alignment issues.
Checking the vehicle’s windshield wipers. During a storm is not the time to notice that the wiper blades need replacement. Replacing wiper blades is an important safety precaution.
Checking the vehicle’s timing belt. This is a big procedure that should definitely be left to the technicians at Accurate Automotive. Most people only have to perform this maintenance step once during the life of their vehicle, but failing to do so can cause serious engine damage.
Change the vehicle’s oil regularly. This was saved for last because it is perhaps the most important thing drivers can do for their cars. Drivers who change their oil every 3,000 miles seriously prolong the life of their vehicles. When a car comes to Accurate Automotive for an oil change, the technicians give it a thorough examination to check for other maintenance that may be required.
Drivers who understand that maintenance builds longevity understand the importance of regular maintenance. Again, vehicle maintenance is one of the best habits drivers can get into.

Maintenance services intervals that we recommend:

Oil and filter service – 3000 miles.
Synthetic oil and filter service – 5000 miles.
Oil and filter service with moa additive – 4000 miles.
Tire rotation and balance – every other oil service.
Alignment check – once a year.
Courtesy check – every oil service. (visual inspection of the entire vehicle and maintenance history check. Includes things like brake condition, tire condition, air filter, belts, hoses, cv axles, exhaust, battery, lights, etc…)
Brake fluid flush – 30,000 miles.
Fuel & air induction service – 30,000 miles.
Cooling system service – 30,000 miles.
Automatic transmission flush – 30,000 miles.
Fuel filter – 30,000 miles. ( if applicable )
Driveline service – 30,000 miles. ( manual transmission, transfer case, transaxle, differential)
Power steering system flush – 30,000 miles.

Do you you have engine belt issues?

How do you know if you have engine belt issues?

Is your vehicle making unusual squeaking noises while you’re driving?

 More often than not, drivers know when their belts require attention because their vehicle makes an unusual squeaking noise when driven.  These noises can sound like chirping or squeaking noises. These noises should always be addressed and you should give us a call at (480) 890-0409 so we can diagnose your vehicle and ensure your issue is in fact a belt issue. If it is our ASE Certified technicians will offer you repair or replacement recommendations and we will move forward with your approved repairs. As always we are happy to give you a ride within 20 miles of our shop by downtown Mesa, Arizona. 


If you have your vehicle serviced at Accurate Automotive we are happy to check your belts and hoses with your vehicle service. We take great pride in partnering with our customers and helping them maintain their vehicle’s longevity by offering honest, quality vehicle repair at a price that’s fair. We are a family-owned and operated shop and are proud of our 5-star Google Rating and our over 350 Reviews. 


Our motto is “Friends… serving friends” so for our friends and customers who are comfortable under their own hoods, we recommend checking your vehicle’s engine belts once a month. 


The best time to examine a vehicle’s belts is when the car or truck’s engine is cool before it has been running for a period of time.  Each of the vehicle’s belts can then be checked for cues that replacement is necessary.  When examining the belts, drivers should look for things such as cracking in the rubber, vehicle fluids that have accumulated on the belt itself, accumulation of rubber particles on the belt pulleys, and worn-out grooves on the underside of the belt.  Any of these signs are good indicators that the belts need replacing.  The tension should also be checked to ensure that the belts are neither too tight nor too loose.  Drivers who are not comfortable performing this inspection should have the technicians at Accurate Automotive do so for them.


It is unfortunate that so many drivers neglect to inspect their vehicle’s belts or have them inspected by a professional.  Overlooking this simple maintenance step can cost drivers dearly.  Accurate Automotive highly recommends that drivers incorporate belt and hose inspections into their vehicle maintenance program, mention it next time you call us to schedule your next vehicle service by calling:

What to expect after you drop off your vehicle


Often times taking care of our vehicle service and repair is new and we don’t know what to expect. In this article, we will be taking some of the mystery out of our service and helping you feel confident about making Accurate Automotive in Mesa, Arizona your full-service auto shop of choice. 


Our communication typically begins when you visit our website or call  (480) 890-0409 and schedule your vehicle service time drop-off. 


On your scheduled day and time, you will park your vehicle in the “Customer Drop Off” reserved space in the front of the shop. Come into the shop, give us your name, confirm your vehicle’s service or issue and give us your keys. For your convenience, we offer you a free ride within 20 miles, so there is no need to call an Uber, Lyft, or arrange for a ride. Our driver will drive you home while our automotive professional takes care of your vehicle. 


We begin our vehicle service by test-driving your vehicle. During this test drive we are looking for the issue you brought your vehicle in for and we are also performing our inspection. At Accurate Automotive we perform a complimentary multi-point inspection on every vehicle. We believe in offering the best service and because of this we trust you will make us your full-service auto repair shop of choice so we get to know your vehicle and give you honest and in-depth professional opinions. Our motto is “Friends… serving friends” since 1992. 


During the second part of our multi-point inspection, we check your vehicle’s engine fluids. Among the engine fluids, we check are: 

  • Engine Oil
  • Transmission Fluid
  • Coolant
  • Brake Fluid
  • Power Steering Fluid

Our Professional takes a photo of your vehicle’s dab-lube tray which is where your vehicle’s engine fluids are tested. This photo along with photos of your vehicle during our inspection are included in your vehicle’s file and printed in your inspection report.

We then move on to the filter-checking portion of the vehicle inspection. We check engine filters inside the engine cabin and include our findings in your report. 

Our technician finishes our Accurate Automotive multi-point vehicle inspection with our tire inspection portion. During this portion, we check the tire pressure and the thread. We notate these findings in our digital top-of-the-line program. 

Finally our auto professional reviews his findings, photos, and notes. They will make a professional recommendation and submit your file to the front office. 

Our front office staff will then call you and review our findings with you, make our professional recommendations, and move forward with the repairs you approve. 


Our certified technicians work hard to get you back on the road safely and quickly. When your vehicle is complete we can shuttle you to our shop at 441 S Robson in Mesa, Arizona 85210. You will receive a printout of your vehicle’s multi-point inspection with photos of your vehicle. Finally, you can pay for your repairs and drive home in your reliably repaired vehicle!

Lee Weatherby’s 1- 2 – 3 – 4 of Vehicles

We understand that cars can seem complicated to many people. Therefore at Accurate Automotive, we do our best to simplify your vehicle for you. 


When you bring your vehicle into our full-service auto shop in Mesa, Arizona we will do an inspection on your vehicle. At Accurate Automotive we look for four primary things. 


1. Safety – Anything that is safety-related with your vehicle we want to address that. We want you to address that so we make sure you have all of the information you need to know. This information includes what is wrong with your car, truck, or van, and what safety implications come with that. If you come in and we find out your vehicle has a safety-related issue we will ask you to take care of it. This will protect you and those you love and care for and everyone else you share the road with. 

2. Pocket Book Safety – This category includes things for preventative safety and things that will help improve the longevity of your vehicle. These things will keep your vehicle running smoothly so you can save money in the long run. 

3. Creature Comforts – These are the items we often take for granted and we find our customers are sometimes really frustrated with them. They include air conditioning and heating, power windows, seat warmers or coolers, cruise control, and such comforts in our vehicles. Although we understand they are important to you they are not our top priorities. This is because we know if there was an emergency and you need to get from point A to point B you could do so without those things. 

4. Keep an eye on it – People have warts, and cars have “warts” as well. There are things on the car that are just not perfect. If I would not fix them on my own car I would not suggest you fix them on yours. This goes along with our “Friends… serving friends” motto to treat you with care and respect. So we keep an eye on it. 

Those are Lee Weatherby’s 1-2-3-4 that we look for in a vehicle at Accurate Automotive. 


We appreciate your support over the years! If you are new to Arizona or are just in need of a vehicle repair shop we want to help. Accurate Automotive offers honest, quality vehicle repair at a price that’s fair. We have been in Mesa, Arizona since 1992 and are happy to offer you a free ride home while we diagnose and repair your vehicle. 


Thank you for taking the time to read our blog. We hope we helped take some of the mystery out of vehicle service and repair.
