Just like going to the doctor for a checkup or the dentist for a teeth cleaning, your vehicle needs to be inspected by an expert 1-2 times per year in order to maintain its optimal running condition. Our auto experts can work with you to develop a preventative maintenance plan that works for you and your vehicle. We can also perform oil changes to keep your vehicle’s lifeblood in good working order!
It is a little known fact that tires can last up to 20% longer when they are regularly rotated. While length of use is important, regular tire rotation also improves fuel efficiency. The best recommendation is to rotate your tires every 6,000 miles and keep that as part of a routine maintenance schedule. When you rotate your tires, it helps even out the distribution of weight on the tires. When you rotate and control the weight distribution on the tires, they will wear more evenly and in turn you will get a more even ride. In addition, regular tire rotation allows you to improve gas mileage as your tires age and show signs of wear and tear. With evenly worn tires, braking also is improved, helping brake more evenly and within a shorter stopping distance.
Wheel alignment is extremely important when it comes to how your car handles the road. Suspension is what connects your vehicle to its wheels and provides a smooth, safe ride over uneven streets. As a result of accidental run-ins with curbs or potholes, parts of your vehicle’s suspension will bend over time. As these parts change shape, your wheels may become misaligned and cause your car to veer to one side or go through your tires very quickly. Misaligned wheels may cause your tires to “scrub” or skid along the road at odd angles and will decrease their lifespan. Misaligned wheels will also waste fuel because more power is required to turn them. Safety also becomes an issue, as misaligned wheels tend to impact the handling of the car.
