  • 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.

    • This shops A1. I have an older mercedes and they were on top of things to get it back into tip top shape after I was having major problems with it. It was NOT an easy fix, but their methodical and patient determination got my car to perfection. I give these guys a 6 star rating plus plus... Definitely use them for all my cars.

    • I had been putting off an oil change for a few days (weeks). I was driving by on my way to San Luis Obispo when I decided I had to get the oil change right away. I searched for the nearest oil change location on yelp and found this place with amazing reviews. I called and could instantly tell they were lovely. I went in 5 min later and was instantly greeted by the owner, his wife and Jake who I spoke to on the phone. They made a FRESH pot of coffee for me which may sound silly but this is just one example of how they all make you feel at home. This is clearly not a marketing ploy but rather they are just really great people that own a business and doing phenomenal at it. Highly recommend this location for any of your needs. I live in Downtown LA and I will make sure to come here when I'm traveling from here on out.

    • Great and friendly people! They were straight forward, informative, and provided excellent honest service! Thank you for helping me Academy Automotive 805!!

    • I can't begin to tell you how great Academy is. They always take great care of my suburban. Never sell me on anything that is not needed, they are extremely honest. And never ridiculous costs on labor and parts. My 20 year old daughter takes her car to Academy for her regular maintenance and oil changes as well, they offer fabulous deals on multiple oil changes at a great price. I know she won t be taken advantage of and nothing but honest work, making sure her car is in tip top condition and safe.

    • I don't even live in Thousand Oaks anymore and I make sure to go there. Everyone is so nice, and they do an amazing job.
      reviewicon

    • Did great work and was responsive to my needs. Could do better with a written estimate and communication on status - had to have special shocks replaced, engine mounts tightened, and a new radiator. Not a small job and they did a great job!

    • Good work, friendly.

    • Great service and good price. I highly recommend Academy Automotive 805. I had a dent and scratched paint in my car, so after researching some body shops on Yelp, I found this gem in Newbury Park. Since I was paying cash, they gave me a fair quote and a cash discount. The damaged are looks like new. The car was ready on time. Jacob and Andrea were nice and pleasant to deal with.

    • This place is awesome! They fixed my moms car and it came out perfect. She was so happy I told her I would get on Yelp and do a review. It was the best price in town and they did a fantastic job. They fixed the dent on her rear driver side quarter panel, door and rear bumper. Thanks for making my mom happy.

    • I must thank everyone who had taken the time to review this shop on Yelp! The left fender of my car was dented so I took my car to a few auto body shops in Thousand Oaks and Westlake Village for repair estimates. So very glad that I used Yelp and found this place which has saved me $350 in repair cost! They don't have a full-time staffed front desk personnel, but it helps cut down their overhead cost. There's a white button at the front desk which you can ring and someone would appear right away to take care of you. Jacob, the person that I talked with both on the phone and in person, was a very nice and respectful young man. I appreciated that he tried to help me because I was paying for the repair myself and gave me a good price. Car was done on time and the damage is gone, like nothing ever happened! No compromise in quality. Cost is more than fair, people is kind and reasonable, and quality is very good... yea, highly recommend.

    • Brought my minivan in for a rattling sound in the exhaust when I accelerated. He put it up on a lift, inspected the exhaust system and found 2 cracked welds. He was honest enough to say that I needed to take it to a muffler shop. So honest that he sent me to get the work done somewhere else. I'm confident they'll treat you right and give you a straight answer without any BS. Thanks!

    • After trying countless mechanic repair shops I stumbled upon this gem tucked behind Home Depot. They were the first shop that did not turn me away because of the year make and model of my vehicle and the difficulty that comes with finding parts. They went through the entire truck and found (plus showed) all of the areas that needed to be addressed and explained the repercussions if I did not go forward with fixing them. They fixed everything go thing I needed and did the job perfectly, they were extremely affordable and even offered to drop my truck off since my office is only down the road. Five stars is an understatement when it comes to the shop.

    • Needed an oil change for my RV, looked on Yelp for local places and found these guys. I called and they said they could do it and to bring it right over. I was very happy with the personal and quick service. Found my new local Newbury Park automotive service place. Good Deal!
      reviewicon

    • These guys are great. I manage a fleet of about 16 cars and they are very prompt and complete with every job. I even take my personal cars here. I highly recommend them for any job, big or small.
      reviewicon

    • Academy Automotive 805 performs top-notch service on a variety of automobiles with an even wider variety of issues. They patiently hunted down a hard-to-find car part for my 1964 Buick Riviera and executed a lasting repair after another local shop tried and failed (twice!). I highly recommend giving them an opportunity to win your business too.
      reviewicon

    • Wonderful service and good price. I really recommend Academy Automotive 805. I had a dent in my car, so after researching for some body shops I found this place. They fixed the dent for a fair price (probably half the price of other body shops) and delivered the car on time. High quality service and fair price, two things that are hard to find nowadays.

    • Awesome team and I can't thank them enough for taking care of my car's issues!! I appreciate their honesty and integrity and can't say enough nice things about the entire Team...I won't take my car anywhere else!!

    • These guys are awesome. They know their stuff and get the job done quickly. Honesty and integrity to spare. They'll be doing all of my automotive work in the future.

    • I had my 1965 Ford F100 completely restored here, they did an excellent job! I will definitely be a frequent customer. Thanks to Jacob as well for answering all of my questions. The paint turned out incredible!

    • Good place for General automotive repair and Fleet repair service.
      reviewicon

    • From my own experience with Academy Automotive, they deserve more stars than the universe. Pay Academy Automotive a visit with your vehicle, have the oil changed, get a tune up, or have your vehicle serviced - whatever it is, Academy Automotive can handle it!
