The vehicle you drive should always be kept in the best condition possible. This will include bringing the vehicle in for regular maintenance inspections for the parts of it. If you are not sure of when this should be done, make sure to contact us. We can advise you on a schedule, or check the owner’s manual. Checking the tires, brakes, oil, and other fluid levels are all important for the overall efficiency of your vehicle. Also make sure you are aware of any issues or anything out of the norm. If you ignore a problem, it will only get worse as time goes on. It can end up costing you more time, money, and stress as well.
Checking the tires is an important maintenance task. The tires will need to have the tread checked on a regular basis. Tread wear is important for each tire. This is what helps to grip the surface of the road when you are driving. If the roads are wet or slick, then the tread can grip the road to handle better. When the tread wears unevenly, then the vehicle will handle poorly on wet roads. If you notice the vehicle pulling in one direction or the other, check the tread wear. You can check the tread of the tires quickly by taking a penny and placing it upside down in the tread. If you can see the top of Lincoln’s head on the penny, then the tread has worn down. This will indicate that maintenance will be needed for the tire.
You will also want to check the oil levels and other fluids of the vehicle. The oil will need to be inspected and replaced when designated. This will help to lubricate the engine and other parts under the hood. If you are not sure when the oil needs to be changed, always make sure to contact us.
