Don't let maintenance fall behind this Fall

It's going to get a bit chilly outside. You need to make sure your car is running at top performance. Just because your vehicle is in good working condition doesn't mean you are ready to go.

  • Be sure to check all of your fluids, including your engine oil, power steering, brake, and transmission fluids. You should also check your windshield washer fluid and antifreeze.
  • Be aware of any adverse weather conditions that may impair your vehicle and your safe passage.
  • Your brake system must be fully prepared to take on the winter weather. We recommend having your brakes inspected and serviced if needed by a professional technician at least once a year.
  • If your vehicle is due for a tune-up, now is the perfect time to do it before the wet weather and cooler conditions arrive. Taking a few minutes now could save you a lot of headaches later.
  • Inspect the underside of accessory drive belts for cracks or fraying. Many newer multi-rib "serpentine" belts are made of materials that do not show obvious signs of wear; replace these belts at 60,000-mile intervals.

It's crucial to maintain your vehicle. Otherwise, you could experience an operational failure and unnecessary frustration. Worse yet, a disabled vehicle could lead to a crash with injuries.

It's always better to be safe than sorry. Our Quality Tune-Up trained technicians work on brake systems, power steering, engine repairs, computer diagnostics, transmission services, coolant system services, timing belts, radiators, water pumps, air conditioning compressors, and climate control systems. In short: We do it all.
