Used Cars Service Needs

All cars need to be serviced, periodically. This is particularly true of used cars since things tend to wear out over time. The way that cars are engineered today, however, means that most cars can easily be expected to last more than 100,000 miles with many making it to and even past the 200,000 mile mark. The main deciding factor in how long your car will last is how carefully you follow the manufacturer's suggested servicing schedule. The best place for used cars service is the dealership where you purchased your vehicle. We know your car's history and can keep records of all maintenance performed on your vehicle. This is particularly important if your car is still under warranty or you have an extended warranty. These extended warranties, known as vehicle service contracts, are meant to take the place of an expired warranty. They can save you a lot of money in repair costs. But, in order to keep the warranties in full force, you need to do follow the servicing requirements at the proper time.


If you ever plan to sell your car back to us, it is invaluable to have these service records on file. This will enable us to assign the best value to your car because we will know that it has been well maintained. Our Service Department does quality servicing, and will also use the right parts for your car. This is a much better option than trusting your car to an unknown mechanic.


There are a few things that you can do, yourself, between visits for servicing. Always make sure that your tires are properly inflated. Over time, all tires will leak some air. If your tires are underinflated it will even affect your gasoline mileage. And if you tires have too much or too little air, they will wear out sooner and will not handle as well. Another thing you can do to keep your car running smoothly is to be sure and use the right octane level of gas for your vehicle. Also, washing and waxing your car on a regular schedule will not only keep it looking its best but will protect the paint.


Keep your car running smoothly and avoid the high repair costs associated with foregoing maintenance, by giving us a call. We will be happy to perform the maintenance service, as set forth by the manufacturer of your vehicle, at a time that suits your schedule.
