When you drive a car, certain costs and responsibilities come along with those car keys! Filling your car up with gas, insurance, and car maintenance costs are just a few of the extra expenditures that we take on in order to have the convenience of being able to drive ourselves where we need to go.
One of the best ways to get the most mileage out of your vehicle is with proper car maintenance. Here at Highway Tire Auto & Lube, we want to share with you some of the car maintenance checks that everyone should get on a regular basis.
- Oil Change- This is far and away the best thing you can do in terms of car maintenance for your car! Oil changes are so important that we cannot stress them enough. Your engine has a lot of moving parts, all of which need lubrication in order to work smoothly without grinding and premature wearing. Oil also works as a cleanser for your engine, picking up particles of dirt of debris and carrying them away.
- Brake Check- Brakes are one of those parts that wear so gradually, we don’t always notice the problem. A regular brake check can be very helpful in ensuring this safety measure can continue to do its job.
- Wheel Alignment- When your wheel alignment is knocked out of place with a pothole or an accidental curb to car collision, you can wear out bearings and other functions of your car prematurely. Additionally, when your wheel alignment isn’t aligned, your car is harder to drive.
These are just a few of the car maintenance steps we feel everyone can use. What would you add to our list?
