When you bought your Chevrolet, you knew it was made to last. Keeping your ride in tip-top shape requires regular maintenance, both inside and out. That’s why we put together this list of recommended Chevrolet maintenance to keep your car running for years to come.
Examine the engine
Your car’s heart is its engine. Just like you’d take care of your own heart, make sure that your vehicle’s engine is in good health. The easiest way is to bring your car to Clements Chevrolet Cadillac for oil changes every 3,000 miles or so. If it’s been a while since a certified professional gave your vehicle a once over, schedule an appointment for an inspection and evaluation by our certified specialists.
Freshen the filters
While you’ve been driving your Trax back and forth to work, its air and fuel filters have been shielding vital systems from potentially harmful particulates. To make sure they keep functioning and don’t negatively impact performance, you should change the air filters every 15,000-30,000 miles, and the fuel filter every 30,000 miles.
Replace the tires
It can be easy to take your tires for granted, but they’re one of the most important components of your Chevy. It’s recommended that you rotate your tires every 5,000-8,000 miles to avoid uneven wearing, and that you replace them every six years regardless of their tread depth. That way, your Equinox will be more than ready for your next adventure
Spruce up the interior
No matter how tidy you like to keep things, taking your family on a road trip in your Traverse means risking a spill or two. If your car could use a bit of care, spend an afternoon detailing the interior, wax and shine the exterior, and pull lingering stains and smells from the upholstery.
To make sure that your car is in the best condition possible, schedule a service appointment with Clements Chevrolet Cadillac today. We’ll inspect and fix the parts that need the most attention.
