Our crew is dedicated to providing you with service you can trust and customer service you'll appreciate. Don't forget that keeping your car healthy will keep you happy. The benefits really are self-explanatory. 

Why Is Vehicle Maintenance So Important?

Keeping up with routine maintenance and following a schedule offers many benefits. From oil changes to tire upkeep, different services simply must be performed to keep your vehicle running at its best. For example, keeping old, dirty oil in your vehicle's engine can cause premature engine wear, deposit buildup from the engine, and even cause engine failure. When you keep up with routine oil changes, your car will benefit from the clean oil. Fresh oil provides better lubrication for a smoother running engine. 

It is also essential to keep up with routine tire checks, battery checks, and other system checks to ensure your vehicle runs at its best. When tires aren't checked as they should be, you risk having a flat tire, needing an extended space for braking, and generally having less reliable tires. You should also have your brakes checked to ensure you can stop properly, make sure fluids such as windshield wiper fluid are full, and check that all lights are working correctly. Each of these routine services helps to keep you and others on the road safe. 

What Does a Maintenance Schedule Look Like?

No matter what type of vehicle you have, whether it be new, used, truck, car, or SUV, there are some general guidelines when it comes to a maintenance schedule. These tasks may need to be tackled monthly, every three months, every six months, and even once a year to serve your vehicle best. It's important to understand when to complete various maintenance tasks.

Each month there are a few things you should do yourself to help prevent costly repairs. You should make sure that your check engine light is not on, check your tire pressure, and make sure your lights are working. Every three months, or 3,000 miles, you should generally replace your engine oil and filter, check lights inside and out, check tire pressure and tread, and check power steering, transmission, as well as windshield wiper fluids.

Every six months, or 6,000 miles, it's recommended to check windshield wipers and your car battery. Once a year, or every 12,000 miles, you should get your brake system checked, coolant and transmission levels topped off, and have your steering and suspension system checked. While this schedule is a rough guideline, it gives you an idea of what you can expect on a yearly basis. Your vehicle's manufacturer will have more specific guidelines in place, but this is a good place to start.
