Let's talk about oil change maintenance and servicing of your vehicle. The old days were every 3,000 miles. Those days are gone. With the new oils that are out there, you now can go 7 to 10,000 miles between oil changes. But remember to use good oil. At the same time have your vehicle safety checked and tires rotated.




In most cases your vehicle shouldn't need a Tune up till about 100,000 miles. But sometimes things happen and maybe your check engine light comes on. Get it checked! We then plug in a scanner and find out what the trouble codes say. That doesn't mean thats the problem, It just gives us a starting point to check. 


Brakes on a average last about 30,000 but some times that changes with driving habits. Thats why we check your complete car, truck or motorhome every oil change.



Remember a vehicle will last as long as you take care of it. Think of it as a member of your family. Your vehicle is an investment. The better you take care of it the longer it lasts.




If your vehicle comes with good tires and you rotate them every oil change, they should last you for 40 to 60,000 miles. The Suspension on your vehicle should last a good 75,000 miles as long as you don't go over curbs or take it off-road. Just keep an ear to sounds that are not normal.
