Jeff and team are personable and professional! Great service and price! Thanks Guys
Thank you to Jeff for taking the time to give us a second opinion on our daughter's car this week and saving her from a very expensive repair elsewhere. Our neighbors recommended Carwell Automotive and we couldn't be more pleased to have a local shop whose owner is honest and has integrity. A++!!
I have been taking my vehicles to Jeff at Carwell for over 15 years. He and his staff treat you right and repair your vehicle in a timely manner, doing it right the first time, and for a fair price. I will continue to trust Jeff and Carwell with all my vehicle service and repair needs!
Needed brakes and a 90,000 mile service for my Honda Accord. Went into this planning on replacing all four brakes, but just let me know that we only needed to do the front brakes now and the rear pads have plenty of life left in them. Saved me money and finished the job when he said would be done. Appreciate having a place like this so close in Clayton. Will definitely be back for any other service.
"Car Sick? Carwell!" has been the slogan in my head all my life. I wouldn't trust anyone else the way I trust Jeff. The customer service and "not a problem" attitude is unmatched.
Fast turn around, great quality of work. Has been my trusted go to mechanic for years and will continue to be.

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.
