Take Action to Reduce Effects of Severe Driving


Are you a severe driver? Normal driving is defined as steady driving in non-extreme weather or environments, so for most motorists today, being a severe driver is more the rule than the exception. According to the non-profit Car Care Council, severe driving includes:


  • Stop-and-go traffic

  • Short commutes

  • Heavier loads: cargo, passenger or towing a trailer

  • Rough or mountainous roads

  • Dusty or salty environments

  • Driving in extremely hot or cold weather


"While most driving is considered 'severe' according to the definition, limiting the amount of wear and tear on your vehicle, and improving fuel economy, can be achieved in a few easy steps," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "By taking action, your vehicle will perform safely, dependably and efficiently with proper maintenance and repairs for years to come, regardless of the driving conditions."

The Car Care Council recommends that motorists be car care aware and take a few easy steps to reduce the effects of severe driving on their vehicles.


  • Follow the "severe" service schedule in your owner's manual.

  • Check fluids, including oil, and filters more frequently.

  • Have certain components such as brakes and shocks inspected more regularly.

  • Observe the speed limit. Gas mileage decreases rapidly above 60 mph.

  • Avoid quick starts and stops. Aggressive driving can lower gas mileage.

  • Don't haul unneeded items in the trunk as extra weight will reduce fuel economy.

  • Keep your car properly tuned to improve gas mileage.

The council's popular Car Care Guide is available electronically or printed copy in English and Spanish. The guide covers major vehicle systems, component groups within the vehicle, service interval recommendations and much more.

    I was 45 miles away from home and needed a tire repaired.

    I really can?t overstate how good this place is. I have a 2004 Tahoe and I am the original owner and it?s been a good reliable vehicle for the most part. I have had some good experiences generally at other shops but I came to Beiler's Auto on reputation alone. I can honestly say I am glad I did. Needless to say after 18 years that the truck is going to have to have some stuff fixed occasionally. So the first time I brought it to Beiler's Was for a power steering pump. They were able to fix the issue without needing to replace the pump. I had them do some preventative work at the same time. The total bill was less than I would?ve paid at a dealer just to replace the power steering pump. I had a couple electrical problems after that that they were able to quickly diagnose and get me back on the road while keeping my bill at a minimum. And most recently I needed a new starter which they replaced with a part with a 2 year warranty for about half of what I would?ve paid at the dealer. Basically the one thing I can say about Beilers Auto Repair is that you can trust them. That?s a rare thing nowadays.

    Beiler's saved me 50% on my repair bills. Did not attempt to up sell. Had repairs done to my Lexus and Kia autos and the job was done on time and no bad surprises when picking up the car. Will use Beiler's from now on!!

    Been doing business with them for over 25 years. Had a tire problem today, dropped off car in the AM for a actual Friday appointment. They had it fixed this afternoon verses Friday. Priced very reasonable. Best place in town. Had another issue today - a year after my last review - Have to say - They are the best place in town. Highly recommend!

    Wow! I came here from an emergency recommendation and was blown away! I came in with no appointment on a busy day and the owner took the time out of his day to take a ride with me to try and figure out what was wrong with my car - as it was rattling and shaking very badly! The owner immediately figured out the issue and went straight to work on fixing the problem! He was professional, knowledgeable, and had a good sense of humor! I know I found my new car mechanic! Thank you!!!!
