The most important thing you can do for your vehicle is to make sure it is properly maintained. Doing so will help it to run at top performance and efficiency levels when you need it to. If you ignore these maintenance inspections, you can end up doing more damage to the vehicle than you realize. If you are not sure how often the vehicle should be checked, the owner’s manual can advise you on it. We can also suggest a schedule that your vehicle should be maintained by. If you have any questions, always make sure to contact us.
When you have inspections done, you can also check parts of the vehicle between the inspections as well. One example is checking the tires. The tires will need to be properly inflated. Tires that are over or under inflated run the risk of blowing out or picking up sharp objects on the road. If you notice a tire is low on air often, it could be a leak or issue with the valve stem. Make sure to bring the vehicle in and we can inspect the tire for you. Also remember to check the tread of the tires. If the tread is wearing unevenly on the tire or from tire to tire, we can rotate them. This will help wear down the other part of the tread, so you have a smoother ride.
Remember to check the oil levels for your vehicle as well. Low oil will cause parts to wear against one another and become damaged sooner. You may also notice odd noises from under the hood, which could indicate an issue. If you notice anything out of the norm, make sure to bring the vehicle in. Catching the issue at the first sign can help save time, money, and stress in the long run.
