Maintaining the vehicle is the most important thing you can do. Since owning a vehicle is one of the biggest investments you will make, it makes sense to keep it running the best it can. Follow the maintenance schedule based on the manufacturer. They designed the vehicle and will know how long each part or component should go until it needs inspection. If you ever notice any odd noises or sounds coming from the vehicle, make sure to bring the vehicle in as soon as possible. This is important because an inspection at the first sign of an issue can help reduce the chance of a larger problem forming in the future. If you are unsure how often to bring your vehicle in, contact us and we can help to recommend a schedule. This can help to provide the best quality safety for your vehicle again.

The Tires should be inspected regularly

While inspecting the vehicle on a regular basis, also remember to inspect the tires. One of the most important factors, especially in the winter, is to make sure that the air pressure is at the correct amount. This is because a tire can lose as much as one pound per square inch for every ten degree decrease in temperature. The correct amount of air can be found in the vehicle owner’s manual. The tires should be checked in the morning before they are driven. They can also be checked long after they are driven. Checking the pressure of the tires right after they have been driven can result in a false reading. This is because the tires will heat up as they rotate. Also make sure to check the tires for what condition they are in. Make sure the sidewalls are free of any cracks or punctures. Also check the tread of the tires. If the tire is wearing unevenly, it may be a sign new tires will be needed soon. Make sure to bring the vehicle in as soon as you can and we can inspect it for you.

Fluids should be topped off

The fluids of the vehicle should be checked regularly. They should be filled to the line indicated on the reservoir of each fluid. It is also important to check the oil. If you notice that the oil needs to be replaced frequently, it could be a sign of a leak. Make sure to bring the vehicle in as soon as possible so we can inspect the oil and oil filter for you. It is also recommended to have the oil changed when recommended. This can help keep the parts lubricated properly when the vehicle runs.

Maintenances can save you money

By going to regular maintenances for your vehicle, you can save money in the long run. This is because parts that are starting to wear can be caught early on. It will then help to prevent a larger issue from forming later, as well as a costly repair bill. If you notice any issues between visits, make sure you bring it to our attention. We can help to ensure the vehicle is in the most efficient possible.
