Frequency Asked Questions About Auto Service

If you're a new car owner, or there are some questions you've always had about what it takes to properly maintain your car, check out a few frequently asked questions regarding car service.

How Often Should I Have the Oil in My Vehicle Changed?

The first place to look when you're wondering about regular service intervals is your vehicle's owner's manual. However, the standard rule of thumb is every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. When you bring your vehicle to our service department, we can advise you about regular oil changes.

Does My Vehicle Need Brake Service?

There are a few telltale signs that may indicate that your truck or SUV is in need of brake service. You might notice that it takes longer for your vehicle to come to a full stop, or you may hear a squeaking or grinding sound when you apply the brakes. These can indicate that your brake pads or rotors need to be inspected and possibly changed.

How Do I Know My Car Battery Needs Changing?

The battery in your vehicle doesn't last forever. And you may notice a few different things that may indicate that the battery inside your vehicle needs to be replaced. If your car struggles to start and cannot tolerate cold weather, it might be a good idea to bring your car to our service center so our team can inspect it.

Why Is It Important to Rotate My Tires?

If you're looking to maximize the lifespan of your tires, then regular tire rotations are an excellent idea. Tire rotations allow for an even spread of wear across all four tires. Tire rotations can also help ensure proper traction when you need it most.
