It happens – we get busy or lazy or just plain forget to have certain maintenance services completed on our vehicles. While it’s natural for certain things to be overlooked, there are a few things that you should not neglect when it comes to keeping your car in tip-top shape.
Gimme a brake. Actually – give YOURSELF a break and make sure that you have your brake system flushed with new brake fluid every two years. Unfortunately, it’s nearly impossible to tell if your brake fluid has absorbed moisture – essentially ruining your brakes – until it is too late. That’s why you should schedule a service appointment with Freedom Honda for a brake flush every two years.
Filters aren’t just for Instagram. Trust us, we know it’s a natural habit for consumers to “just say no” to additional services when they bring their cars in for an oil change or alignment. But when our Colorado Springs Honda service department lets you now that you are in need of a new air or fuel filter, it’s for your car’s benefit, not for ours.
Watch the time. Typically, timing belts should be replaced around the 75,000 mile mark, depending on your make and model. The timing belt is an important component of the engine – don’t make your engine sad by neglecting its friend.
Keep your cool. Is your car’s thermometer functioning correctly? It could be the difference of your car over- or under-heating. Be sure to have the antifreeze or coolant replaced every two years and also have the Freedom Honda team test your gauges.
Want to keep your Honda running as long as possible? A little preventative maintenance definitely goes a long way – make your service appointment for your car’s overdue maintenance today at your local Colorado Springs Honda dealer – Freedom Honda.
