Considering the hefty price tag on a car, even if you buy it used, you naturally want some assurance that you will get your money's worth from any vehicle that you purchase. Many factors contribute to overall satisfaction and value with a car purchase. This includes the type of car you buy, the seller, and the vehicle's maintenance. Purchasing a vehicle with a known reliability track record is a good way to ensure you are getting a car you can depend on. However, the care that you put into maintaining a car – or a lack of care – can largely affect the vehicle's performance and longevity. Our dealership offers helpful tips to make you an informed car owner with a car that will last a while.

Springtime! Why You Should Change Your Air Filter Now
March brings the eagerly awaited arrival of spring. It also brings the pollen and dust that go with it. You probably take measures to keep the air in your home clean during this season, especially if you suffer from allergies. But do you take the same precautions for your car? If not, now is a good time to start. Pollen that accumulates in the air can make its way into your car's interior and its engine if it is not stopped. This can cause problems down the road. One way to prevent that from happening is by changing the air filter in your car in the spring. This way, your car will be able to run on clean, clear air at a time of the year when it needs it most. From better gas mileage to a longer-lasting engine, this is why it's a good idea to keep your air filter working.
If you've recently read horror stories about your car being held for ransom by car hijackers, you're not alone. These stories are 100% true.

Routine maintenance is an incredibly important part of owning a vehicle. Changing your oil at regular intervals will ensure that your vehicle is running efficiently and smoothly. You may be wondering at what point you should change your oil. The truth is that each vehicle and each brand of oil affects when you should make the switch. Sometimes you need to base the answer on mileage. Other times it might be more about time. Many oil service centers will recommend that you get your oil changed every six months or every 3,000 miles. Manufacturers are now explaining that once every 5,000 miles is perfectly acceptable. If you have an older vehicle or something is going wrong, then you may want to consider an oil change earlier on.
