When Should I Change My Oil?

Most vehicles need an oil change every 5,000 to 7,500 miles or every six months, whichever comes first. You can discover the right oil change interval for your vehicle by consulting your owner's manual and working with our service team. Depending on your driving habits and conditions, you may need to change your motor oil more often. 

Changing your oil is essential for the health and performance of your engine. Motor oil controls the engine's heat and friction, allowing it to run smoothly. However, time and use can make the oil less effective. If your oil is too old or dirty, it can slowly warp and damage engine components. Changing your oil regularly is much easier and less expensive than buying new engine components.

Do I Need Brake Service?

Your brakes are crucial for your vehicle's performance and safety, and routine service will ensure your vehicle performs at its best. Some of the red flags that indicate you may need brake service include:

  • Spongy braking
  • Scraping or screeching sounds when braking
  • A long pedal travel distance

When Should I Change My Tires?

Most drivers change their tires to suit the season and when there is too much wear or damage. You can maximize your safety and traction in winter or get the most out of your vehicle's performance in summer by changing your tires according to the season. Most tires last around six years, with the maximum being ten years.

One of the most significant challenges and reasons for changing tires is your tires' tread wear. Your tires' tread wears naturally while making contact with the road, but with uneven or not enough tread, your tires lose traction. If you have less than 2/32 of an inch of tread left, your tires are no longer safe or legal to drive with.

Some of the top reasons to change your tires include:

  • Uneven wear
  • Scalloped tread wear
  • Punctures
  • Cracking
