Car maintenance in Charlotte gets your car in tip-top shape
When you go on a car trip, you obviously want to have a good time, but that can’t happen unless your vehicle is prepped for the road trip. Nobody wants their trip to be dampened by a car breaking down along I-77! Make sure you’re taking care of your car with auto service in Charlotte before you embark on your trip. Check out these tips that will make your trip a memorable one (in a good way, of course)!
- Oil change: You obviously need to make sure you get an oil change in Charlotte before you pack your bags and head out. Think about the oil as your car’s blood and the engine as the heart. If your vehicle is low on oil, it can damage the engine and can lead to engine failure. We all know how expensive that can be, so make sure you schedule an oil change!
- Car tune up: This one is a little bit less obvious, but you want to make sure you get a car tune up in Charlotte before your trip. This is a generic term for the TLC your car may need at any moment. For example, you may want to change your spark plugs when its time for your next auto service. New spark plugs help your engine burn cleaner and more efficiently. You’ll also be saving at the pump since a change in spark plugs during your auto service will help improve gas mileage and performance!
- Tire rotation and inflation: This is another biggie in pre-trip prep. If your tires are low on air, heat builds up on them can cause a tire blowout. That situation is scary enough, since that can cause you to lose control and get in a dangerous situation. Tires should also be rotated since front and rear tires wear differently. Rotating them keeps tread wear equalized and maximizes tire life. Make sure you come on down to our service center to get your tires ready for your trip!
