Our Guide To A Long-Lasting Vehicle | Accurate Automotive

By Accurate Automotive in Mesa, AZ


At Accurate Automotive we know the importance of helping our customers keep their vehicles on the road reliably.

Being in business since 1992 has afforded us over thirty-one years of experience and we have seen the importance of using high-quality parts, and liquids along with delivering honest, quality vehicle repair at a price that’s fair.

Let’s say you’ve got a nine-year-old vehicle with plenty of distance on the odometer. What can you to do make it last another year or two?

Let’s start with the premise that there’s no reason that a modern car can’t run for 200,000 miles or 320,000 kilometers in Mesa with proper care. The engineering and manufacturing quality is there.

Like A Reliable Old Stove, Gas Prices Slowly Heat Up

WASHINGTON, D.C. (February 1, 2024) —The national average for a gallon of gas rose by a nickel since last week to $3.15. The upward trend is likely a combination of oil costs edging into the upper $70s per barrel and normal seasonal increases as winter eases and demand for gas creeps higher.

“We are in that time of year where pump prices begin to heat up, usually peaking around July,” said Andrew Gross, AAA spokesperson. “But unless something shocks the global oil market and causes prices to spike, the national average for a gallon of gas will probably stagger higher, with some flat days or even small price dips along the way.”
