By going to regular maintenances we can help determine when the oil should be changed on your vehicle. You can also improve you driving by changing some habits you might have. Short trips and extreme weather conditions can put pressure on the car engine. Also traveling on dirt or gravel roads can lead to more dust getting in the oil. These conditions can shorten the useful life of your oil. If you notice anything out of the norm between visits, it is recommended that you bring the vehicle in as soon as possible so we can inspect it.
