If you’ve purchased a new vehicle, oftentimes your manufacturer will recommend that you have various services performed once you hit certain mileages. Very frequent intervals are 5,000 miles, 10,000 miles, 30,000 miles, 60,000 miles, 90,000 miles, and 100,000 miles. These services are outlined by your vehicle manufacturer to ensure that your vehicle lasts as long as possible.
The care that you take of your vehicle, will be what decides how long it lasts. You can count on us at A-1 Auto Tech, Inc. to take excellent care of all your automotive services. Our expert technicians can perform all of these services on your vehicle to ensure that it lasts as long as it was built to last. There’s no one better in the Mountain View area.
These manufacturer recommended services can be a lot of different things. They can include something like an oil change. Ensuring that clean oil is able to properly lubricate and cool your engine is crucial to long engine life. These services could also include things like tire rotations. This ensures that tires wear evenly.
There are also components that are switched out at certain intervals such as spark plugs or coolant. You may also need to have your AC system recharged. Whatever it is that your vehicle may need, we are more than happy to help with the service.
Everyone wants their vehicles to last as long as possible. Back in the day, 100,000 miles was considered a lot of miles. Once you crossed that threshold, it was fair to assume that your car was pretty worn out.
Nowadays things are very different. Cars often go 200,000+ miles now. It is due to improved engineering of parts as well as regular maintenance of the vehicles that this is possible. Diesel engines can even last from 300,000+ miles. We are constantly increasing the life of our vehicles.
Another key part of these services is inspection, particularly with the higher mileage services. Over time all of the components on your vehicle wear out. Abusive driving can also cause things to break or bend. An inspection of vehicle components is an excellent way to be aware of the condition of your vehicle and to make necessary repairs.
There are many important parts to inspect, such as the chassis. A broken spring could ruin the alignment of your vehicle. Belts and hoses are also easy things to inspect. Essentially any system on your vehicle can have some sort of visual inspection to ensure that it is in a working condition.
So when your new vehicle is due for a service, stop by A-1 Auto Tech, Inc. Whether you need an air conditioning service or need spark plugs replaced, we are more than happy to help.
