When Should You Get a Tune-Up
How often do you need to bring your vehicle into our shop for preventative maintenance and tune-ups? Several factors, like driving conditions, how often you drive, and the year the car was made, affect how often a vehicle should get routine maintenance. However, the professional mechanics and technicians at Hewlett House of Tires, Tire Pros suggest yearly routine maintenance for any vehicle with more than 75,000 miles on the odometer. Additionally, you should have your heating and AC checked at least once a year, and all fluids, from oil to transmission, should be changed every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. The rule of thumb with vehicle maintenance is that it’s better to be a week early than a day late.
