Routine Maintenance

No matter how carefully you drive your vehicle, it's going to undergo some routine wear and tear. That's just a normal part of driving. However, while wear and tear is normal, that doesn't mean that it's something you can ignore. You might think that you don't have to worry about small problems, but small problems can quickly grow into more serious issues when you aren't paying attention. No matter what kind of vehicle you drive, from cars to crossovers to SUVs to trucks, routine maintenance is vital to keeping it running properly, and our auto service experts are here to help you out.

Routine maintenance helps your vehicle stay healthy, but that's not its only benefit. It also helps your wallet stay healthy in the long run as well. It's true that auto service costs money up front. However, small services are much more affordable than massive repairs. You might save money at first by never changing your oil, but it'll cost you a lot more once you need to replace your engine. Routine auto maintenance helps prevent problems later down the line, and best of all, our selection of auto service specials will help you save even more.

Oil Change Services

Replacing your engine oil is the most important service you can perform to extend the life of your vehicle. Engine oil is responsible for reducing the friction between the fast moving metal parts that make up your engine, so it is vital that fresh oil is used as often as possible. That's because over time, heat and friction break down your oil and make it thinner and therefore less able to properly lubricate your engine. Furthermore, dirt and other particles create sludge in your engine that renders it unable to pass through the narrow passageways within your engine to lubricate all parts properly. Continue to follow the recommended intervals from your owner's manual no matter how long you own your car, and you'll keep it running smoothly for hundreds of thousands of miles.

Battery Services

While it's true that your alternator is responsible for charging your battery as you drive, the constant cycling of power combined with extreme heat and cold will cause your battery to lose voltage over time. Unfortunately for you that means an inability to start your vehicle, or worse yet, being stuck on the side of the road waiting for roadside assistance. Have your battery checked yearly to ensure it's maintaining the proper voltage, and replace it whenever you begin to lose power.

Tire Rotation Services

Extend the life of your new set of tires by having them rotated at least once during their life cycle. Rather than put all of the stress on just two tires and needing to replace them more often, simply have your tires rotated every few thousand miles and you can essentially double the life of your tires. Not only does this save you money, but it ensures predictable handling as well.

Brake Services

Your brakes are the most important safety feature on your vehicle, so it's important to keep them functioning properly. Brake pads wear more quickly than rotors, but both need to be inspected to ensure safe performance. Calipers can stick, especially if you've driven up north and dealt with salted roads, but even rain and rust can cause problems over time. Have your brakes inspected and repaired at our dealership and ensure the safety of you and your family.

State Inspections

Like it or not, having your car inspected yearly is required so you can drive it legally. Make sure your vehicle is up to standards with a visit to our service center and drive confidently throughout Kentucky.
