Tips to a COOLER Vehicle cabin this summer.

It is July 4th already, and we seem to be entering into a long HOT dry spell. If you are like most people you vehicles A/C system is very important. Here at Chumbleys we here to help! We just purchased a new state of the art Bosch A/C recover and recycle machine. Now with two machines to keep up with the high demand we can process A/C repair faster then before. I thought I would share some tips to keep your vehicles cabin a little cooler. As no one is particularly patient when it comes to passenger compartment cool down in hot weather. We’re all impatient in today’s society. We want it now! So, when the inside of our car is hot we are also cranky. You know how it goes, you start the engine, hit Max A/C and turn the blower up to High expecting to get hit with a blast of icy-cold air. Lots of luck!

Family road trips are a big part of summer, and a big part of road trips is the vehicle you are driving.

The New Chumbleys Auto Care Blog

Here it is! My first ‘Blog” from Chumbleys Auto Care. To be honest, I am a bit nervous about just writing and not knowing who is reading. So if I ramble on, or seem lost, bare with me. My plan is to advise our customers of industry trends, new technology we have been updated on, and or tools / equipment we acquire. So before I focus on the “new,” I will recap on some past events and/or noteworthy items to bring you up to speed. Well, not to toot our own horn, but I am very proud of the shop staff, as we were given the prestigious award (one of three in Iowa) of chosen for the AAA motor clubs “Top Shop” award. This award is presented to shops that meet AAA stringent criteria. They have to have a customer satisfaction score of 93 or higher (ours was 98). We then received a Top Shop award from a web site called repairpal.com. The thing I like about AAA, and the Repairpal.com award is the fact that they: 1) seek and review our customers feedback about their service experience; 2) H ... read more
