No One Is Immune To Trouble On The Road

No One Is Immune To Trouble On The Road

This seems like an unnecessary advertising strategy. ?    We can all laugh AFTER we have vehicle related travel troubles but during? It's a nightmare even Johan isn't immune to! This small luggage trailer bottomed out in the hills of Tennessee puncturing the left tire and causing the tire to drag, smoke and wear away with half the trip still left to go! Thanks to Johann and Hondura, the Toyota Highlander pulling it was running perfectly and was able to pick up the load the trailer had to leave behind. Some amazing techs at a local tire shop who stayed late to help put new tires on the trailer wheels, all travelers were able to get back on the road and reach their destination safely although a bit later than planned. Somehow Mrs. Johann found the crazy situation of repairing a trailer tire on a steep highway ... read more

How Often Should I Have My Vehicle Inspected?

As a vehicle owner, you may wonder - how often should I have my vehicle inspected? While some people may be reluctant because of the fear that the mechanic will find something expensive to fix, the truth is that regular inspections are the key to saving you money in the grand scheme of things.  When you have regular inspections, you increase the chance of catching issues early on that can turn into expensive repairs if ignored. It also helps mechanics identify any parts that may need replacing in the near future that could otherwise fail and cause problems for you on the road.  So the question remains - how often should you have your vehicle inspected? The answer is - as often as you can, but at least every 6 months. You can also refer to your vehicle's owner's manual for more information regarding inspection recommendations as well as recommended services. The age of your vehicle and your own driving habits should also be taken into consideration when thinking abou ... read more

Bakkie: The Toyota Hilux

If you know Johann's Hondura or even if you don't but you've just wondered about our unusual name, you will discover that we have deep South African roots. Johann came to the U.S. from Durban, Kwa Zulu/Natal in 1980 and envisioned a car repair shop that specialized in a few, reliable car brands in order to service them with excellence. As a British trained vehicle mechanic, Johann was able to bring a unique brand of service and expertise to the Oklahoma City Metro and has continued to do so for the last 39 years! We are proud of our roots and as such, we'd like to introduce you to the Toyota Hilux--the rugged yet luxurious pickup you never knew you couldn't get!   The Toyota Hilux is not available for purchase in the United States but this rugged Toyota "bakkie" (slang for truck) is a popular off-roading/luxury choice in South Africa, Australia and many other parts of the world ... read more

How to Drive For Free

How to Drive For Free

Okay. So that title is a bit misleading. You can't drive 100% for free but you can certainly drive inexpensively without compromising on quality or style! Let me tell you how. Many of us make the mistake of believing we have to drive our cars off the dealership lot with zero miles and a dealership warranty that'll cover the best years of our cars life but that simply isn't the case.  In reality, a used car, like an existing house, hasn't necessarily suffered from previous use. In many cases, the car, like the house has benefited by previous ownership in the form of upgrades, add-ons, as well as inherent issues having already been addressed and repaired! The key to buying used is making sure you're not only getting a good deal but also making sure your potential car checks out mechanically. Did you know Johan's Hondura offers Pre-Purchase Checks to help ensure you're buying well?  As a ... read more
