PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

Car Care Aware

The following simple and inexpensive preventive checks will greatly extend the life of the vehicle, ensure safer operation and even benefit the environment.

Always consult your owner's manual for individual service schedules because maintenance requirements vary by manufacturer.

  • Always consult your owner's manual, but a good rule of thumb is to have the oil filter changed regularly - every 3,000 to 4,000 miles.
  • Have all fluids checked, including brake, power steering, transmission/transaxle, windshield washer solvent and antifreeze. These fluids play a large role in the safety and performance of the vehicle.
  • Check tire inflation. Under-inflated tires can result in a loss of fuel efficiency. This is the least expensive form of preventive and safety maintenance. Tires should be checked once a month.
  • Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency by as much as 30 percent.
  • Have the chassis lubricated frequently. This step extends the life of the moving components of the vehicle's suspension system.
  • Check battery cables and posts for corrosion and clean them as needed. The battery fluid also should be checked and filled if it is low, unless it is a maintenance-free battery.
  • Have the lighting system checked frequently, including headlights, turn signals, and brake and taillights.
  • Check windshield washer blades for cracks, tears and windshield contact. Replace them at least once a year, or sooner if streaking begins.
  • Inspect engine belts regularly. Worn belts will affect the engine performance. Look for cracks and missing sections or segments.
  • Have the air filtration system checked frequently. The air filter should be checked every other oil change for clogging or damage. This system ensures that the vehicle is performing at its peak condition.

What People Say About Us


  • -Matt H.

    Best place in Greenbrier to have work done. Took my truck in and asked them to do a bumper to bumper inspection and tell me what it needed. They gave me a list of things that needed to be done immediately and another of things that could be done at a later time. They were flexible with my time and got the work done on schedule. Their prices were fantastic and their entire crew was extremely professional.

    My entire family have been taking our vehicles here for years now. They are always up front about what is wrong and how much it will cost before they perform the repairs. They will let you know what needs immediate repairs and what can wait. They will go above and beyond to make sure you are happy. They are always extremely fair on parts and labor costs. There is no other place I will take my vehicles to. They will have my family's business for as long as I am alive.

  • -Michelle T.

    I am from Evansville, Indiana. I had just bought my car there. I drove to Greenbrier, AR not knowing my brakes were very bad when I started. The seller told me he had just put brakes on it. I called Barkley's, which was highly recommended. They got me in right away. Replaced all of the brakes, rotors and something else that fell apart while removing the rotors. They were EXTREMELY professional, and the bill was VERY cheap. I HIGHLY recommend these guys! If I ever need any kind of repairs again while visiting here, these guys will ALWAYS get my business!
