Keeping up with you vehicle's maintenance is essential to its lifespan. While that isn't necessarily news, it can be tempting to ignore the service light or push back a routine maintenance appointment. Fortunately, modern vehicles don't require the same under-the-hood attention as they once did; however, there are a number of things we encourage our customers to look after. In this post, we'll walk you through the main areas of importance when it comes to servicing your vehicle.

You may have heard that oil is the lifeblood to your vehicle. Because of this, getting your oil and filter changed regularly is one of the things you can keep up with to ensure optimal performance of your vehicle. The recommended timeline for getting your vehicle's oil changed will vary by the model year and brand, so be sure to check the owner's manual for accurate guidelines. We'll handle the rest when it comes time to schedule an oil change. Finally, we would like to mention that we welcome walk-in appointments for routine oil services. Simply stop by Monday through Friday between the hours of 7:30 AM -- 4:00 PM.

The other maintenance services that require your attention for optimal performance include replacing worn wiper blades, checking your coolant levels, checking your battery, and getting your tires checked and rotated.
