Family in a Car 
 

With so many handy features and new technology, it may seem like today's cars virtually take care of themselves. However, there are some steps you can take as a responsible car owner to prolong your car's expected lifespan and keep it running as smoothly, safely, and efficiently as possible. While it might not initially seem apparent, the care that you give to your vehicle can largely affect how long the car lasts and how much money you spend on repairs. Studies show that properly maintaining a vehicle can save up to $30,000 in repairs down the road! Regardless of whether you're planning to keep your car for life or sell it eventually, putting a little bit of time and effort into vehicle maintenance will pay off in the long run.

Change the Oil Regularly

Every time your vehicle has its oil changed, the mechanic puts a sticker in the windshield to remind you when the car is due for service next. Sticking with the recommended oil change schedule is critical to your car's performance. Letting the car go for too long in between oil changes can damage the engine and eventually ruin the mechanical system. Ultimately, it also shortens your vehicle's lifespan. Our dealership makes it easy and convenient to schedule an oil change for your vehicle as needed. If your car's next appointment is coming up, don't hesitate to contact us for fast and straightforward service!

Maintain Your Car

Oil is just one component of a vehicle's overall health plan. There are other kinds of maintenance your car needs to last a while. While some guidelines exist across the automotive industry for servicing a vehicle, your car has its own precise schedule outlined in the owner's manual. The owner's manual will tell you when your specific make and model of car needs service and what service should be done at each appointment. Rotating the tires, replacing worn brake pads, checking the alignment, and doing a comprehensive safety inspection are some of the services a mechanic may perform on your car based on its mileage and needs.
