This is probably the most professional and helpful automotive repair place in town! I came in without an appointment, because I've been driving for days with this awful knocking noise that seems to come from under the car. I met with Carlos, who was very attentive, and listened to my description of the problem, in order to help me. I was on my lunch hour, and told him that I didn't have much time. So, they attended to me immediately! After diagnosing a transmission problem, I was given a written estimate. I have had estimates from other repair shops since, and Omega came in very competitive. However none of the other shops were as attentive, as timely, and as professional as Omega automotive was. Their waiting room was very comfortable, and the bathroom was super clean - a nice bonus! I recommend Omega Automotive!
When looking for honesty, affordability and not feeling like you got ripped off, this is the place. Carlos is upfront and honest. I have now been coming to Carlos exclusively for oil changes and regular maintenance.
After a trip to Big Bear with the Jeep Jamboree, I had a few things needing attention on my Jeep. I was quoted $429 which I thought was very fair for all the work I wanted done, and when it was all completed I was only billed $370! And they did great work!
These guys are the best. Jay hooked me up. They are transparent with their pricing, and they go into detail with what they'll do to your car. They gave me a great deal to fix my car up, and they did just that. My car looks brand new, they even washed it before giving it back to me! Jay is the best! Recommend this shop, I'll definitely come back here for future repairs. Honest people.
Fast and amazing work, great customer service. Jay was on point and explained all repairs in detail. Will definitely come back.
A few weeks ago, we were on our way to go camping when my car started overheating an hour out. With no choice but to pull off the freeway, I Googled the closest mechanic to my location and found Omega Auto. We pulled in and told them what was happening, and we lucked out that they were not super busy that afternoon. We told them that we were on our way out and needed it fixed quickly, as we had no where else to go while they were working on it. Carlos was very helpful and reassuring, and they were able to get us out the door in just a few hours and for less than they originally anticipated. I feel very fortunate that we stumbled across them in our hour of need!
Omega is phenomenal. Sure, no one likes to pay for car repairs, but you can rest assured knowing that Carlos and company at Omega will take great care of your car and save you money whereever they can. They "Get" we all need to watch our dollars, and at the same time, provide you the servicing that is needed. Friendly, Quality and Reliable should be their motto.
Thanks again for such a professional oil change! Appreciate the extra courtesy touch!
Oil change - got it covered. Engine work - got it covered. Damaged your car or truck? Got that covered too, and great work all around. Oh, yeah - Transmission experts as well! Fast friendly service all the time!
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.
