4 Vehicle Maintenance Tips You Shouldn't Ignore

The car you drive is an investment. For many people, a vehicle is one of the largest expenditures they will every make. Therefore, it is essential to take care it by regularly using our dealership's used car service. There are four key things that every car owner should do in order to keep the vehicle in the best possible shape.

Depending on the vehicle, you should change the oil every 5,000 miles or so. The owner's manual will have information on what kind of oil to use and how often it should be changed. This is an essential part of keeping the car's engine working properly. If old oil remains in the system, it can actually cause significant damage and costly repairs.

Keeping your car's tires properly inflated does more than simply mitigate the risk of getting a flat. Over- or under-inflated tires will have a major impact on the car's gas mileage. When you get your oil change, ask the staff to check your tires to make sure they are at the proper PSI.

In addition to the correct inflation, tires should also be rotated and balanced at every oil change. The position of the tire will cause a certain wear on the rubber. By rotating the tires, you can ensure that they do not become lopsided or incur undue stress. This can also impact the gas mileage of your vehicle.

Lastly, just as you change the filters in your home to improve efficiency, the filters in your car should be changed. This can also take place when you are getting your oil changed at  our dealership. Ask the mechanic to take a look at your filters and replace them if necessary. This will maximize your car's fuel efficiency and improve the way air circulates through the vehicle.

Our used car service is a great way to make sure that you get the most out of your vehicle. Make sure you get your oil and filters changed regularly and pay attention to your tires. Not only will this save you money in gas, but it can also extend the life of your car.
