    What People Say About Us


    • -Benton S.

      Took our Jeep Liberty to GBE for an oil leak. Turns out there was no oil leak, the oil filter was just not screwed on tight enough. They tightened the oil filter NO CHARGE!!! Other work I've had done was timely and at a fair price.


    • -John M.

      We had the low tire pressure light come on today, so we stopped in to have them check it out. We had a nail reMoved from one tire, and replaced the two back ones before we made our trip here, so we needed to get it checked out. One of the guys working came out to greet us and after I told him the story, he had us pull in to a stall. He checked the pressure in all 4 and one was a little low. He explained that even only being 3# low would trigger the the light. He aired us up and said "don't worry about it" when I offered to pay him. These guys had a very clean shop, and whenever I'm back down this way, I'll be going to them for any repair work


    • -Angela B.

      I've used GBE for several years. These guys are always honest and helpful. I have never had one issue with this shop. Most importantly, quote matched my final price and repair was done in a timely manner . When I picked my vehicle up one of the guys informed me that I really needed to take my car in for my air bag recall. He explained to me some things he had witnessed with faulty airbags. I made that appointment next!! It's nice that people go out of their way to point you in the right direction. I've had , oil changes, inspections, oxygen sensor replaced, ac compressor and starter all replaced with GBE. Prices are always fair. Support a local business! !


    • -Bryan S.

      ixed my car well and was at great price....honest home town guys


    • -Justin A.

      I purchased a Diablo Sport Intune Programmer from here. They also tuned it to my 2013 Chrysler 300s 5.7 Hemi really unlocking it's true power, while also giving me great customer service. Will recommend to others!


    • -Amanda B.

      Fixed my car super fast, price was what was quoted, and the staff were honest and helpful. I would defiantly use them again.


    • -Kenneth P.

      Every single time I have brought my or my wife's vehicle here, they fixed whatever the problem was and never once tried to overcharge or overfix a thing. This places has always treated me with complete respect and this is the only place that I trust my wife will be able to drop off a vehicle and be treated with the utmost respect on the island. I am happy to have found this mechanic.


    • -Shane S.

      Best service. This is now my go to mechanic!!!


    • -Josh B.

      The guys here were great. I had to drop my car off because I had car trouble on my way to the hospital. They were able to get it back to me the next day. The price was also good as it compared favorably with what others had paid on line. The guys here seem to do good work, charge a fair price, and run an all around good business.

  • 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.
