To help keep your vehicle in the best condition possible, make sure to go to regular maintenance inspections. This is important because not only can you improve the safety on the vehicle, but it can also be more reliable when you drive. If you notice something out of the norm when you are driving, it is recommended to bring the vehicle in so we can inspect it for you. This can also help prevent further issues from occurring to parts of the vehicle. It can reduce the chance for a costly repair bill in the future as well. Noticing an issue is important so it is fixed in a timely manner. Ignoring the problem can cause further damage to the part, as well as other nearby areas of the vehicle. If you are not sure how often to bring the vehicle in for maintenance, we can help to recommend a schedule that is best for your vehicle.
The safety inspections will check all of the levels of fluid in your car. There are several fluids that will need to be checked in your vehicle. These include the oil, brake fluid, antifreeze, transmission fluid, and the power steering fluid. To check many of those levels, you will need to locate the reservoir for each fluid. The liquid should be at the line indicated on the reservoir. If it is not, make sure to fill it to the line. If you find that you have to fill the reservoir frequently, it could indicate a leak in the system. Make sure to bring the vehicle in and we can inspect it for you.
Always make sure that the brakes are inspected on a regular basis. The brakes are important because they allow you to slow down and stop when you are driving. This helps to avoid an accident incase someone slams on the brakes in front of you, or if an animal jumps in the road. If you notice the brake pedal vibrating when you apply it, which could mean there is an issue with the brakes. Any odd noises or grinding sounds you hear can also mean that the brakes should be inspected. If the brake pad starts to wear down, it will cause friction with the brake rotor. This will the produce the noise, as well as any vibrations you notice.
Your engine needs to run the car, but you also need to be able to ride in comfort as you go. The air might need to be recharged or you might need to make sure there are no leaks in the hoses in case the cool air is not getting to you.

It is always best to have the vehicle inspect so we can help ensure it is safe and reliable when you drive. Remember to always bring your vehicle in when you start to notice an issue. This can help you save time, money, and stress in the long run.
