Simple Affordable QualityWelcome to MIKE, a family of independent neighborhood full-service automotive maintenance and repair centers. MORE MILES MADE EASY is our passion. Our Nationwide Warranties will insure you can go much farther and really enjoy the miles. Our services include 4X4 Services, Wheel Alignment, Batteries, Brakes, Car & Truck Care, Electrical Service, Electronic Diagnosis, Engine & Transmission Service, Exhaust / Muffler, General Services, Heating and Cooling Services, Oil Changes, Maintenance, Steering, Suspension, Tires, and Undercar Services. Our employee teams are committed and competent.

It all started back in 2014 when we opened our first MIKE More Miles automotive repair center. We felt strongly that our friends and neighbors deserved something much more than what the national chains and car dealers were delivering. For us, it was about giving motorists a far simpler way to get the full life of their vehicle and then, in turn, to have the money (they might, otherwise, be forced to spend on more car payments) available for far better things. Not a new idea, but we were bent on making it very, very SIMPLE. That meant building a team of some of the best Installers, Technicians, Service Managers, Leaders, and Shop Owners in the industry, many of whom had demonstrated great track records working in historically great automotive service chains.

QUALITY, we are extremely serious about. But we are also committed to making it AFFORDABLE...so you have more money available for family, friends, fun, and future. We service most brands and ages of cars, minivans, SUVs and light trucks. Interested in driving your vehicle to 225,000 miles and beyond? Ask us about the MIKE Smart Plan.

Locally owned and independently operated, we admit that we are not always perfect. But being the FAMILY we are, we promise you that WE WILL TRY HARDER to serve you better than anybody else in the business. Drop on by, give us a call, or send us an e-mail to learn more. Thank you for giving us the opportunity!

Vehicle Tips

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.

Shout out to Scott W. who was very professional, friendly, and gave me good information and advice on my tire replacement, oil change and transmission flush. Was knowledgeable, professional and knew his products. Highly recommend service from this business/location.

I cannot say enough about this Mikes More Miles team! My husband and I are traveling from Boston, MA to Montana. We just recently purchased a 2007 GMC Yukon, and though we love it, it has been surprising us with some unpleasant random fixes! Just North of Chicago our Power Charging System light came on so we had to stop in Elgin for the night. Long story short, the next morning we brought it in right when they opened and Scott and his team were ON IT! We needed a new alternator, new break pads and a break line (oy vey)! They got our car into the shop before we ever finished giving our contact info and they got us back on the road in just a few hours. They went above and beyond what we hoped especially during the busy 4th of July weekend. We are now about 5 hours on the road and our Yukon (her name is Cornelia) is running great, no issues! Though I hope to not run into any more issues, I would happily work with this Mikes More Miles again. too bad we live so far away! Thanks guys, enjoy the cookies!!

I appreciate this facility! The mechanics know what they are doing, they have competitive prices, and they have customer service skills. I have never gone there and had anyone be mean or rude to me. I recommend Mike More Miles to my Coworkers, who are close by to this garage, and I recommend them to my friends. You won't go wrong by using their services.
