Bring your vehicle to our team of expert technicians at Holmes Auto Group’s Collision Center for routine maintenance checks.
Next to purchasing a home, owning a vehicle is generally the biggest investment in a person’s life. Buying or leasing a new vehicle is an exciting event, and usually takes some time for consideration. Similar to buying a home, drivers want to be sure that the car they’re choosing has everything they need or desire to suit their lifestyle, whether it be several rows of seats for children or an abundance of horsepower to satisfy the thrill-seekers. In any respect, the one thing that every vehicle has in common is the need to be regularly serviced in order to operate at peak performance.
By setting up routine maintenance checks with the Collision Center at Holmes Auto Group, drivers can feel confident that their vehicle is working at its full potential. Many vehicles experience unwanted and unexpected problems because they don’t receive service regularly. By keeping up with routine maintenance checks, most problems can either be avoided, or detected and fixed before they become more serious.
Tips for Properly Caring for Your Vehicle
In addition to fixing already existing problems, there are many things you can do as preventative measures to ensure the safety and performance of your vehicle. Here are a few of them, courtesy of Holmes Auto Group:
- Tire Inspections – Tires play a greater role in the overall performance of a vehicle than most people realize. Have a technician inspect them during routine maintenance checks to make sure the tread is not worn or damaged. This will ensure better performance and prevent a potential safety risk.
- Fluid Check – Making sure fluids in the engine and radiator are at the required level is very important. Having a technician check the oil and coolant levels is a great preventative measure to take before long road trips, and gives the technician a chance to inspect the engine and radiator for visible problems.
- Brake Inspection – Having your brakes inspected regularly is obviously important. Brakes perform one of the most important functions in a vehicle. It’s recommended that drivers change their brake pads between 25,000 and 50,000 miles of usage. If you hear any grinding or screeching noises, get your brakes checked immediately. Even if they seem to be working well, it’s a good precautionary measure to get them checked every once in a while because when brakes start to go, they go quickly.
- Additional Parts & Services – Ask your service technician about any other services, repairs, or inspections they might suggest. This could include inspecting the battery, windshield wipers, filters, and other fluids. Having trained eyes looking over your vehicle from time to time is an integral part in maintaining performance. A trained service technician is better prepared to notice signs of wear that might prevent a budding issue.
Our team of technicians at Holmes Auto Group want to provide you the comfort of knowing your vehicle is operating at, and maintaining, peak performance. So be sure to set up routine maintenance checks with our Collision Center, and don’t be afraid to ask for extra inspections. Our objective is your peace of mind.
