- Oil: T.O. Haas oil service includes an oil change, lube, and new filter, which will help extend the life of your engine.
- Fluid levels: We check and top off coolant, transmission fluid, power steering fluid, battery water, and windshield washer fluid.
- Filters: We inspect your air, fuel, and all other system filters.
- Coolant: We offer a free cooling system inspection to check for harmful corrosion and determine if the system needs to be recharged.
- Belts and hoses: We check belts and hoses for cracking, fraying, or glazing and adjust them as needed. Our mechanics will advise you when replacements are needed.
- Tires: Proper air pressure, balancing, and front-end alignment are critical to getting the most mileage from your tires. We make sure your tires have the inflation pressure your car’s manufacturer recommends and can advise you on how to maintain that pressure until your next service visit.
Preventative maintenance can prevent unpleasant surprises that can leave you stranded in dangerous situations on the road. Ongoing, regular maintenance will also save you money by helping you avoid expensive repairs in the long run. At T.O. Haas, our comprehensive preventative maintenance program includes this regular service at 30,000-, 60,000-, and 90,000-mile intervals.

Auto Repair FAQs
What car maintenance do I actually need?
Regular preventative service visits will head off potential problems early, before you are left stranded on the road. Consumable items like filters, belts, and other parts can also be replaced. Preventative maintenance will identify these problems before a part wears out or fails completely.
A regular maintenance check includes the following:
- Change the oil and oil filter
- Check all other filters throughout the car
- Check all fluids, including AC coolant
- Check wiper blades
- Check brake pads or shoes, rotors, calipers
- Check tires, including car alignment, balance, tread wear
- Check spark plugs, distributor cap
- Check all belts
- Check car battery, cables, connections
If parts need to be replaced, such as a car battery, we will have you back on the road as quickly as possible. Let T.O. Haas be part of your car care team!
What is the difference between a tune-up and maintenance?
The term “tune-up” is still used to describe any service designed to make a car run better. This might be replacing spark plugs or correcting ignition problems or fuel usage.
Modern vehicles, though, don’t have many things under the hood that can be adjusted. The engine computer in newer-model cars fixes things automatically, like ignition timing, idle speed, and fuel mixture. There isn’t much left in today’s cars for a mechanic to “tune up.” So, a preventative maintenance visit and a tune-up both describe the same goal—an engine that runs at top efficiency—but the process is different today. No matter what you call it, vehicles of any age need regular preventative maintenance.
How often should I schedule preventative maintenance for my vehicle?
Are the auto mechanics at T.O. Haas experienced professionals with top training qualifications?
When do brake pads need to be replaced?
Always refer to your car’s owner’s manual for the manufacturer’s recommendation for regular service and replacement of parts and systems. On average, brake pads last about 50,000 miles, but if you hear unusual noises coming from the wheels, make an appointment for a diagnostic brake check. As a safeguard against faulty brakes, a small metal piece rubs on the rotor when the brake pad is too thin to be safe. The resulting squeal is built into the brake system to alert you.
Premium brake service at T.O. Haas includes:
- A thorough inspection of the hydraulic and brake friction system
- Resurfacing of rotors and/or drums as needed
- Replacement of premium-grade brake pads and/or brake shoes
- A check and repack of the wheel bearings if applicable
- Brake fluid flush and refill
If brake repair is needed or pads need to be replaced, our mechanics will discuss the next steps with you before any work is done.
Does T.O. Haas sell major tire brands?
What red flags should I watch for when I need new tires?
Take the time once or twice a month to walk around your vehicle and look for:
- Bulges, blisters, and other weak spots
- Cracks in the sidewalls
- Nails or other objects
- Tread wear, especially uneven wear
In addition, make sure the tires are properly inflated. The recommended pressure can be found in your owner’s manual. Your fuel usage will increase if your tires don’t have the right amount of air in them.
Can I get my tires repaired at T.O. Haas, as well?
How often should I schedule my car’s oil changes?
Today, it depends on the age of your car, the manufacturer’s recommendations, the oil you choose, and your driving habits. Newer cars that use synthetic oil may only need an oil change every 10,000 miles or so, while older cars may need oil changes more frequently. If you normally use your vehicle for towing, it’s probably best to get an oil change more often too.
The traditional advice of “get the oil changed every 3,000 miles or three months” can still be followed by any driver any time. You can’t get the oil changed too much! Ask our oil change specialist to set up a schedule for you for regular oil service.
Are you looking for auto repair in or around Lincoln or Omaha Nebraska? If so, you’re also looking for a reasonable rate for these services. Because of that, you’ll want to make sure you do some comparison shopping before you commit to a local car mechanic. That usually means checking the Internet for auto repair deals in the area. Comparison shopping isn’t exclusively done online, but the Web has made it easier than ever.
Looking for low prices is a vital part of comparison shopping for car repair, but this shouldn’t be the only thing you consider. Be sure the auto repair shop you find offers a strong Nebraska-area reputation and ASE-certified mechanics. To get both these benefits and more while saving money on your next auto repair, choose T.O. Haas Tire & Auto!
Are local car repair shops cheaper than dealerships?
There are countless options for auto repair in Lincoln and Omaha, so it pays to ensure your auto shop is the most qualified one in the area. Many local drivers assume they should get service at the dealership where they purchased their vehicle. But that’s not necessarily true—dealership service isn’t necessarily anything special. On top of that, dealerships in Nebraska and beyond have an unfortunate tendency to overcharge customers for their work.
The other big reason Nebraska residents opt for dealership service is that they don’t think they have a choice. All too many people believe that they need to get dealership service to keep their car’s warranty in place. Of course, this isn’t true, either. Under US law, dealerships can’t revoke warranties based on where you take your car for repair. That means there’s no reason you can’t give T.O. Haas a try!
How can I avoid expensive car repairs?
No one in Nebraska or any other part of the country wants to overpay for car repairs. Despite this, you’ll inevitably need some auto services over your vehicle’s life. The key is finding a car mechanic who won’t overcharge you for their work. For people in Lincoln, that means giving T.O. Haas a call (or scheduling an appointment online).
Ideally, your auto shop of choice should give you other opportunities to save—and that’s certainly the case at T.O. Haas. We offer a full selection of online coupons, but the deals don’t stop there. You can also explore our overstock specials and tradesmen savings to get even better prices for the services you need.
Along with those, one of the best ways to avoid expensive car repairs is to avoid car repairs in general. By taking your vehicle’s maintenance requirements seriously, you can significantly extend its lifespan while keeping your risk of serious trouble to a minimum. This process is called “preventive maintenance,” and the pros at T.O. Haas will know just what maintenance services your car needs!
What is the most common auto repair?
T.O. Haas is Nebraska’s best full-service auto repair shop, which means we provide all kinds of services daily. Because of that, it’s hard to say which of these jobs is the “most common.” Still, some of the tasks we regularly handle include:
- Preventive maintenance. No driver likes visiting a car mechanic to repair unexpected issues in their vehicle. You can reduce your risk of experiencing these malfunctions by keeping up with your preventive maintenance needs.
- Brake repair. In some cases, all your brake system needs to return to its former glory is a fresh set of brake pads. But that’s not always enough, so choose us to handle full-fledged brake repairs.
- Engine diagnostics. If you’re a Nebraska driver with a modern vehicle, your engine has an onboard diagnostic system to monitor any issues. Since a “check engine” light alone won’t give you enough information to go on, bring your car into T.O. Haas when this light activates.
- A/C repair. Your car needs a fully functional A/C system to keep you cool in Lincoln’s summer heat. When this system stops blowing cool air or encounters other problems, let us take a look at it!
Of course, there’s a good chance that the car repair task you need isn’t included on this list. That’s nothing to worry about—the mechanics at T.O. Haas pride themselves on being able to take on any auto repair job our customers need. Whether your car troubles are common or rare, we’re ready to help you get back on the road!
How often should you bring your car to the auto mechanic?
Every vehicle’s auto service needs are different, making it hard to say precisely what your car’s service schedule should look like. Still, the team at T.O. Haas can share some standard rules of thumb for auto maintenance. Then, you can adjust our advice as needed based on your vehicle’s unique needs and overall condition.
In general, bringing your Nebraska-area car in for service at least once every three to six months is a good idea. That way, the T.O. Haas crew will have a chance to closely inspect your vehicle and let you know if you need any additional services. Again, your car might need service more or less often than this implies. If you need help coming up with an auto maintenance schedule, don’t hesitate to ask!
