What drives your auto technician to reach for excellence time after time?
6:32 am est
Let's face it, working on cars can be hard work. It's messy, physically demanding,sometimes mind boggling and many
times the work that goes into each job goes unnoticed.
Every once and while somebody will recognize the work done by
their auto technician, and when that happens, it fuels the passion that brought the technician to the industry in the first
Thank you Mr. Neeley, for taking the time to recognize our work and for giving J. White's Automotive the opportunity
to serve your automotive needs!
"I recently had work done on my Freelander at JWhites.(timing belts, very big job...)
Not only were the prices more than reasonable (and much better than any LR dealer)but the service was great as well.
Jeff was very knowlegeable and friendly. I will absolutely be taking my LR there for all repairs going forward..."

Winter Tip # 2 - Did you know that cold temperatures can change your tire pressure?
7:34 pm est
Did you know that
cold temperatures can change your tire pressure? It can! Cold weather deflates your tire pressure.
Maintaining proper air pressure in your tires during the cool winter weather will allow you to have
good traction and handling no matter the temperature.
If your vehicle's tires are under inflated by only 6 psi it could lead to
tire failure. Additionally, the tire's tread life could be reduced by as much as 25%. Lower inflation pressure will allow
the tire to deflect (bend) more as it rolls. This will build up internal heat, increase rolling resistance and cause a reduction
in fuel economy of up to 5%. You could experience a significant loss of steering precision and cornering stability with a
slight decline in pressure. While 6 psi doesn't seem like much, it usually represents about 20% of the tire's recommended
