Keeping Your Car Up to Standard

(Continued)

“These guys have been here forever,” Steed says. “It’s a good crew. We try to stay ahead of the learning curve.”

They’re not the only ones who should try and stay ahead - the more you know about your car and its needs, the longer it will last. Vehicles that are maintained properly on a yearly basis are less likely to run into major issues that will not only cost a lot of time, but a lot of money. Sure, keeping up with scheduled maintenance like oil changes and brake checks are essential but so are the little things we may not know about.

“We always do a full inspection every time a car comes into the shop. Ball joints, tie rods, filters, and front ends. You name it,” says Steed.

All Tune keeps track of every vehicle it services, providing record of services performed and maintenance required. Every time you go in they’ll be able to look up your car’s history to better serve you. They have state of the art computers and equipment to help diagnose and repair whatever may be troubling your vehicle.

So what should you do to keep your car running like the first day you got it? It’s recommended that oil, lube, and filter changes are done every 3,000 miles. Flush the cooling system and change coolant once a year. Check tires to make sure they’re inflated to the pressure specified by the manufacturer every week and rotate them every 10,000 miles. Brakes and the battery should be checked once a month. Prepare to replace your brakes at 45,000 miles. Lubricate, inspect, and clean - these are the common pieces of advice on a quick internet search.

All Tune and Lube will take care of all of this for you - just stop on by for the best service in town. Your car will thank you.
