Why is it so important to maintain your vehicle?
You want your car to run as long as possible, and regular maintenance will not only keep your engine running but will help prevent problems from occurring. Ignoring regular maintenance could lead to fluid buildup, dirty filters, worn belts, and old spark plugs leading to bigger engine problems in the long run. You vehicle’s manufacturer has a maintenance schedule specifically for your car model and can be found in the owner’s manual. Following this schedule will keep your car running smoothly for a very long time.
How often should I have routine maintenance performed?
Each vehicle will have a time or mileage interval that is suggested for regular maintenance, inspections, or part replacements. Some vehicles will alert you when it is time to check the engine with indicator lights. Read through your owner’s manual, keep track of when you get your car maintained, and pay attention to those indicator lights!

What could happen if I don’t get my oil changed regularly?
Your vehicle’s engine needs oil to run properly and without oil, it could seize up and die. If the motor oil is left too long, it will begin to break down leading to problematic deposits in your engine. It will no longer properly lubricate and cool the engine, damaging parts and leading to more costs. Getting a routine oil change will prevent damage from occurring, saving you money in the long run.
Why is it important to get my tires rotated and balanced?
As you drive your vehicle, your tires slowly wear and depending on whether you have a front wheel or rear wheel drive car, your tires will wear differently. You want your tires to wear evenly so that you don’t have to buy tires as often. Rotating and balancing will help distribute the wear evenly to all tires and ensure you are getting the most your of you traction. In addition to this, getting your alignment checked is also important to reducing tire wear and making sure your vehicle doesn’t pull to one side or the other during driving.
