To keep your used car going the extra mile, it’s important to follow some type of maintenance checklist. Your San Leandro, Fremont, and San Jose, California, drives can be pleasurable and easy when you stay in tune with your car’s needs. San Leandro Hyundai can be an active part in adhering to a comprehensive schedule of routine maintenance.
Maybe you did not start as the first owner of your car, but you want to go about service with just as much gusto. If you receive the service records of your car, you may know what must be completed next. Most likely, you will not receive those records, but you can get ahold of the maintenance schedule for your car. Visit the manufacturer’s website to review your schedule.
Check your mileage and cross-reference it with the latest service tasks that should be accomplished. This can help you get started. Our dealership goes through each used car before it takes up residence on our lot, so we can tell you what service may be up next.
Several areas of the car will require service on a more frequent basis than other areas. For instance, depending on your car, you want to schedule an oil change at the right intervals. Again, check the maintenance schedule and talk to one of our service mechanics who can suggest when to make an appointment. Telltale signs like sluggish performance and dirty oil will indicate the need.
Piggyback the oil changes with a tire rotation. Both can be done every six months to upgrade your car’s performance. Front tires wear out more quickly from extra usage, so exchanging them for the rear tires evens out their wear. If you believe that you may need new tires because of unsightly cracks or a wobble when you ride, visit us for a check-up.
Brake pads do eventually wear out, whether you’re heavy-footed or light-footed. Either way, get them examined starting at 25,000 miles with routine appointments. Although they may last until at least 50,000 miles, you want to avoid hearing them squeal or grind. Squealing indicates deteriorating brake pads, while grinding may mean they’ve ground down to the rotors.
The Hyundai Service Center wishes for you to always have a good drive. That will come with service appointments at the right intervals and talking to our service mechanics about how your car is performing. If you find that your car may be exhibiting weird noises, or you notice that something isn’t working as well as it used to, we can bring it back to its former performance.
We cover every aspect of your car and use only OEM (original equipment manufacturer) parts for your vehicle. This way, your vehicle will perform at its best and will bring you confidence when you rev the engine. If you wish to order a part to repair it yourself, we can order it for you, or you can order it online right here.
