Corey?s worked with me and was very communicative. They helped me figure out what to do with the vehicle while my husband was out of town. Corey?s arranged for someone to pick up my vehicle, and they kept me well informed along the whole way.
I've taken my car hear a number of times for various problems from new brakes to a new transmission. I always feel good about leaving my car and feel that they are honest and don't pressure you into anything, while letting you know your options. Would definitely recommend to anyone!
Great staff and extremely thorough and professional.
Once again, I am so grateful for Corey's. We have taken our vehicles to dealers and other mechanics for service before finding Corey's, and we usually had to bring them back numerous times until we got the problem fixed. The staff at Corey's are excellent diagnosticians and are very thorough in their "treatment" of our cars and trucks. I always enjoy learning from Ed, who explains in plain English what the vehicle needs, why it needs it, and what priority he would assign to different repairs. He also gave us great advice on finding a replacement truck for our 27 year-old pick-up, and we now have an excellent "new" (17 year old) truck for him to repair! We give Ed, Jen, and the other staff members at Corey's 5 stars for their service. We always recommend Corey's to people who are looking for a good mechanic!

Corey's provided great service and the employees communicated well.
I can't say enough about this place a-mazing! I was in town from Boise and needed to get a noise taken care of. They were able to take care of it same day and were so honest in showing me bad parts. Even came in cheaper than what was quoted! Great honest place. Wish I could drive from Boise to have them maintenance my vehicles .
- 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.
