Vehicle Preventive Maintenance

Preventative maintenance is the best way to ensure your vehicle stays reliable, and lets you avoid major repairs as well as the expenses that come with them. At Honka Auto Repair, we provide a complete preventative maintenance program, and carry all the necessary parts and expertise to take care of the little jobs that let you avoid the big ones. Choose from a comprehensive range of the fluids, oils, filters, and belts that your vehicle needs to keep running happily and healthily. Relax while your ride is inspected by our highly-trained technicians, and rest assured that it'll keep running smoothly for miles and miles.

The first part of our preventative maintenance program deals with your vehicle's fluids. Your car needs these fluids to keep running smoothly and prevent overheating. Most of our fluid change services are completed quickly so you can get back on the road in Clearwater, FL. Our technicians are happy to monitor and refill your engine oil, automatic transmission fluid, brake fluid, anti-freeze, power steering and wiper fluids. We also perform checks on your radiator to ensure there are no small leaks caused by stones and other road debris.

The next area of our program deals with the filters in your car. Whether filtering oil, fuel, or air, your car's engine and drivetrain rely on pure ingredients free from power-robbing particles. Your vehicle's fuel system, for example, wants only the purest gasoline or diesel. When microscopic particles build up in the system over time they reduce its efficiency and cause issues like decreased gas mileage. The same goes for your engine's air filter. An engine needs a mix of fuel and air to create combustion, and that can't happen if your motor can't breathe. Regularly changing your car's filters will prevent this from occurring. Honka Auto Repair will make sure all your car's filters are flowing smoothly and clear, as well as the often-overlooked cabin air filter which can make a huge difference in how pleasant a car is to be inside.

Tire balancing is an important area of preventative maintenance where we excel. If your car's tires are out of balance, they could be putting undue strain on components in the suspension, braking, and drivetrain systems, which can cost you greatly further down the road. Ensuring a smooth ride with professionally balanced wheels and tires is a much cheaper, easier, and safer way to make sure your car stays on the road, while ensuring a long life for your tires.

Your car's timing belts are extremely important to examine during the course of preventative maintenance. There are a number of events that need to take place for one full revolution of your car's engine. These belts ensure that they all line up with each other, and occur at exactly the right moment. Should the belts become damaged or break, the events can fall out of sync and happen at the wrong time, which can be seriously detrimental to the health of your engine and your car overall. Honka Auto Repair ensures that all your car's belts are healthy, and that all of those events keep happening at exactly the right time.

If you want Honka Auto Repair to make sure that your vehicle is well-equipped to continue transporting you safely for years to come, call us at 727-446-0596, or visit us in Clearwater, FL so we can schedule a time to take a look at it!

Competent and very Friendly! Prices on the high end but I guess it is the price for quality!

Great customer service, quality mechanics.


-Christian C.

Excellent service! 100% recommended!


-Victor M.

I dont usually post reviews but Honka totally earned it. Im new in the area and for me finding honest people (not to mention much better pricing than the competition) to take care of my car is a relief. Im the kind of customer that is loyal when service is great. Totally recommend it.


-Mario M.

These people are phenomenal in terms of service. First off they honored a store coupon that was misprinted or could easily be misinterpreted then they picked me up in their shuttle service at the time they closed at!


-Brandon W.

Excellent service. I love supporting a small business, and when they are as kind, considerate, and economical as Honka, it is so reaffirming to entrust my vehicle to them again and again. You aren't just a number of a vehicle make and model to these guys.


-Maranatha P.

Great people. Good business.


-Teresa H.

Really lucky I found this place. They take great care of me and my truck. Honest people and they do a great job.


-Robby T.

An excellent quality shop with excellent and respectful staff. I was there for a brake job. Only 50min.


-Alberto G.

I've recently moved to Largo FL from California and needed a good mechanic. Two different people told me Charlie at Honka Auto Repairs was good. So I thought he would be a good choice.


-Carol Y.

It's hard to find an honest mechanic, well I can say I had a great experience at Honka Auto. Took my car in for tire repair due to a nail in the tire. Car was in the shop within 10 minutes of me arriving, mechanic located the nail and brought it to me. He explained it didn't puncture the tire wall, checked my other tires and pressure and told me I was good to go... no charge. They could have easily charged me for a patch and I would have never known any different. Thank you Honka Auto, you've just got a customer for life & a 5 star review! Honesty goes a long way.
