Reaching a Milestone

It used to be that, when an automobile’s odometer hit the 100,000-mile mark, owners would think about trading in their vehicles. These days, however, most vehicles can go twice that distance without needing major repairs. To ensure that probability, vehicle owners are urged to check their owner’s manuals for recommendations about changing parts such as water pumps and timing belts, the failure of which can lead to major problems. The 100,0000-mile mark is also a good time to change all the fluids that are critical to vehicle performance–brake fluid, engine oil, power-steering fluid, engine coolant, etc. In fact, all of these fluids should be replaced according to manufacturers’ recommendations as a means of hitting the 100,000-mile mark without incident.

Clearly, proper maintenance is vital to the longevity of your car. Keeping to the recommended maintenance schedule now can mean another 100,000 miles down the road. Our technicians are ASE Certified, which means you know that we have the experience and know-how to give your car the care and attention it will need to crank the speedometer a second time.
