Our 52,500 mile service period consists of the following services and inspections:

Clean Engine Oil and Filter

Due to the Columbia environment, MD region Vehicle manufacturers find us to be in rough driving conditions. They need more regular adjustments in Oil and Filter. Changing the engine oil of your vehicle regularly as per the instructions of the manufacturer is an integral part of maintaining your vehicle properly and keeping its warranty intact. The oil keeps the engine’s internal components lubricated, and the filter collects any debris from damage. It is an important daily maintenance component to ensure the vehicle’s efficiency and durability.

Reset Maintenance Reminder

If your vehicle is fitted with a Maintenance Reminder System, we must reset it during your service to ensure that the next Service Interval is properly informed.

Steering Link and Boots

We will check the Connection and Boots in your Steering. Excessive directional play can be risky. In an emergency situation, it can hinder the speed of the reaction and cause problems such as excessive tire wear.

Ball joints and dust covers

Excessive ball joint play can cause excessive tire wear, poor performance and handling. If not spotted early enough it will result in failure, cause additional damage to the suspension and leave you stranded on the roadside.

Engine Air Filters

can also be cleaned up to ensure that there is no unnecessary play from the suspension which can save the expense of a very costly repair and avoid a breakdown. They need to be regularly replaced too. The Air Filter System prevents contaminants out of the exhaust and ensures proper air intake into the system. Depending on where you live in Columbia, you might need to change your Air Filter MD area more frequently. If your Engine Air Filter is clogged, the engine output and fuel consumption will be drastically reduced.

Drive Shaft Boots

We ensure that your vehicle boots are fully sealed, have no damage or tears, and are not rotted dry. This ensures the drive shafts remain properly lubricated and can save on expensive repairs to replace the Drive Shaft.

Tire Inspection, Rotation, and Inflation

Roads in the Hanover, MD area are sometimes not always in the best condition. Proper inflation of the tires is crucial to optimum handling and safety. Our Mechanics will check your tires during each service period to ensure that your tires are correctly positioned for the best efficiency and durability. Tire rotations are done routinely in such a way that all four tires are worn equally. When you don’t change your tires they will wear unevenly more often and will need replacement. Proper inflation is important for proper wear and efficiency of your tires. Properly inflated tires also improve fuel mileage.

Brake Linkage / Drums / Pads / Disc

For the safety of you and your family, it is extremely important to keep your vehicle running at its best performance. A Braking System that works properly is extremely necessary. Your Braking System needs more frequent inspections of the harsh weather conditions in the Columbia, MD area. Routine and detailed braking system checks can ensure you can safely stop your vehicle at any time. Brake failures can also cost a great deal of money to repair. A brake pad that gets too small and can’t meet the next service interval if it’s not caught will wear it into your rotor and become a very expensive repair.
There’s more to repairing your vehicle than just changing your oil and rotating your tires. Proper preventive maintenance saves you money, as well as time.
