Scheduled Vehicle Maintenance
Manufacturers recommend scheduled vehicle maintenance at certain milestones in your car’s life. This routine maintenance helps your car enjoy the best possible gas mileage, performance, and lifespan. Investing in scheduled maintenance now can help prevent costly repairs in the future. Typical maintenance milestones include the following:
Every 3,000 to 7,000 miles: Change the oil and filter, have the tires and lights inspected, and check the transmission fluid, power steering fluid, coolant, and windshield washer fluid levels.
Every 15,000 miles: Replace the air filter.
Every 20,000 miles: Inspect the battery and coolant.
Every 25,000 miles: Replace the fuel filter.
Every 30,000 miles: Replace the power steering fluid and inspect the coolant and radiator hoses, suspension, and brake pads, as well as the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system.
Every 40,000 to 50,000 miles: Replace the spark plugs and spark plug wires and inspect the suspension and ignition systems.
Every 60,000 miles: Replace the radiator hoses, timing belt, brake pads, brake fluid, coolant, and power steering fluid.
Each vehicle is different, so you should check your owner’s manual for more specific information on what your car needs and when you should schedule it. You can also contact our team with your vehicle’s mileage, year, make, and model for recommendations on when you should come in and what services are best for you.
During routine operation, your vehicle’s engine accumulates dirt, carbon, and small pieces of metal. These end up in the oil circulating through your car, creating a thick sludge that can damage your engine and diminish performance. Replacing old contaminated oil will provide your vehicle with the clean, efficient lubrication it needs to deliver peak performance. An engine that receives regular oil changes will deliver greater gas mileage, enhanced functionality, and a longer lifespan.
Older vehicles may need an oil change every 3,000 miles. Newer cars can often go 5,000 to 10,000 miles between oil changes. We replace the oil filter with every oil change and fill your vehicle with the appropriate oil weight and grade.
Brake Repair and Maintenance Services
Your brakes use a hydraulic system to compress the brake fluid, squeeze your brake pads against the rotors, and slow or stop your vehicle. Several critical components work together to ensure your vehicle always stops quickly and effectively when you need it to. You should schedule immediate brake service if you notice the following:
Screeching or squealing sounds from the brakes.
Grinding noises when you press the brake pedal.
A soft, squishy-feeling pedal.
Difficulty stopping the vehicle.
A shaking or vibrating steering wheel when you brake.
A burning smell from the brakes.
An illuminated brake light.
You should also keep up with routine brake maintenance throughout your vehicle’s lifespan to prevent the types of issues listed above. We perform a thorough inspection with every brake service. We can replace brake fluid and brake pads, resurface rotors, calibrate your braking mechanisms, repair pistons, and more.
Battery Maintenance and Replacement Service
Your vehicle’s battery powers all the electrical components inside, from the radio to the lights. After about four years, your battery performance may noticeably decline. However, the climate and driving conditions that your car experiences will play a big role in the lifespan of your battery. If your car won’t start, the battery is one of the most likely culprits. We provide quick battery changes using original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts to keep your vehicle running as efficiently as possible.
Your vehicle’s tires provide the critical connection point between your vehicle and the road. Good tires will make all the difference in your driving experience, delivering a smooth ride while safely navigating the hazards of weather like rain, ice, and snow. You should have your tires rotated and aligned every 5,000 to 7,000 miles unless otherwise recommended by the manufacturer. This will help them wear evenly, which extends their lifespan.
When it’s time for new tires, we can help you find the right fit for your vehicle and driving needs. Our service center has both Goodyear tires and Michelin tires on hand. We can also custom order anything you might need if you’re tackling unique challenges on the road.
We provide OEM parts for your vehicle that are an exact match for the original installations. OEM parts deliver superior performance and reliability because they’re custom-made for your vehicle. Unlike third-party parts, OEM products come directly from the manufacturer and are customized for your vehicle’s make and model. Our OEM parts often come with a manufacturer warranty and quality assurance guarantee.
Whether you’re due for maintenance or suspect something’s wrong with your vehicle, we can help. Schedule an appointment with our certified technicians for a thorough inspection, professional diagnosis, and quality service.
