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 Newman's Marathon, 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 Bowling Green, OH. 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. Newman's Marathon 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. Newman's Marathon 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 Newman's Marathon to make sure that your vehicle is well-equipped to continue transporting you safely for years to come, call us at 419-353-1311, or visit us in Bowling Green, OH so we can schedule a time to take a look at it!
What People Say About Us
Always thorough and no one can beat their customer service. Love these guys.
Excellent service, do work on my time schedule. Consistent outstanding service.
Wonderful feeling of home town service and atmosphere. Very fair pricing on everything. All staff members are helpful and very knowledgeable and very personable.
I took my car here when I was having some trouble with the brakes. They let me know that there were some other serious issues with the car and, instead of pressuring me to pay them an arm and a leg to fix it and get my car back on the road, they were up front with me and let me know it probably wasn't worthwhile to fix what was essentially a lost cause. They were really friendly and helpful throughout our interactions and I will definitely seek out their services in the future.
I take my van to Newman's for service because I know, without a shadow of a doubt, that I will get good, honest care. The owner is local and has an excellent reputation. Their charges are fair and they communicate with you before going ahead with repairs. I recommend them all the time.
This is a great place to get some work done on your car or get gas. Staff is friendly, fair, knowledgeable, and trustworthy. Myself and my family have been going here for years, and we've never had a bad experience.
I've had more than one different issue fixed here, and each time they have given me a good price and got the work done quickly. The one time they didn't quite tighten something enough and it came loose due to bumps in the road and started making noise, they fixed it no charge. I have always been wary of bad mechanics, but these guys have been totally trustworthy. Don't get your car fixed anywhere else.
Probably one of the most reliable and most trustworthy auto repair companies in all of NW Ohio. I have been bringing my auto(s) here since 1991 and the entire Newman's Marathon crew always take care of me and do it with a high level of customer service and expertise. And - if there is an issue that the team thinks needs looked at by another repair agent (like the dealer), they will help prepare the info to share with this other repair agent so they can be efficient in assisting with the needs of the client. Basic service (i.e. Oil Change & Tire Rotation / tire repair / check ups) are probably the best that I have seen in all of Bowling Green and the surrounding area. Cost effective as well as efficient in my schedule. BEST IN THE BUSINESS!
