Maintenance For Your Vehicles This February
It’s February, which means love is in the air! Whether you're helping your little ones prepare cards for their classroom or making a reservation for two, Valentine’s Day can be such a fun holiday. It can be a day to appreciate everyone around us and show a little love to those who need it…and your vehicle.
Your car is the one that rushes you to the store just in time to get pink glitter for your kiddo's Valentine's box, helps you arrive right on time for your date, and keeps you safe year-round. It deserves a Valentine's card, too (and may we suggest checking our coupons page for some great ideas for an easy-to-print gift)! If you’re unsure how to treat your vehicle this month, I have a few suggestions to help your vehicle make it through the winter!
An Oil Change
This Valentine's Day, show your car some love by getting it the oil change it needs! Don’t forget, simple preventative maintenance such as oil changes can help you with your fuel economy, meaning more cash flow to go towards the fourteenth’s big date night!
Winter in Colorado can be hard on your car, which is why it's so important to stay on top of regular maintenance, such as oil changes. Oil changes help lubricate the engine, remove debris, and keep it from overheating.
When done regularly, they can help you avoid costly repairs. Colorado car owners should get an oil change every 3,000 to 5,000 miles, as their car mechanic or auto repair shop recommends.
A Cabin Filter Replacement
Ever feel like you need a breath of fresh air? Keep your car's air clean and fresh by getting an air filter replacement.
Driving in Aurora can be especially tough on your car's cabin air filter due to the high levels of allergens and pollutants in the air. This is especially true for weekend warriors and the adventurous type, as driving on old dirt roads and off-roading fill your filter even quicker.
Cabin air filters are essential for keeping the air inside your car clean and free of pollutants. These filters should be replaced regularly, as they can become clogged with dirt and debris, reducing their effectiveness.
Depending on the make and model of your car, cabin air filters should be replaced every 15,000 to 30,000 miles or as recommended by your car mechanic or auto repair shop (and the pros here at Aurora AutoPros can give you some more insight if you’re nearby!).
A Brake Service or Repair
Don't want heartbreak next time you come into the shop? Make sure to get your brakes repaired and serviced often!
Brake services and repairs are essential for keeping your car safe on the roads. Regular brake maintenance helps ensure that your brakes are working correctly and that your car can stop quickly and safely.
Having your brakes checked and serviced at least once a year or as recommended by your car mechanic or auto repair shop is recommended, though you’ll want to come in right away if something feels off. Regular brake maintenance can help you avoid costly repairs and keep you and your passengers safe on the roads.
