How To Keep Your Car Running Past 100K

These days it’s not uncommon for a well-maintained vehicle to eclipse the 100,000 mile mark and even go beyond. But, the key to that longevity remains the same: diligent attention to the needs of your vehicle and keeping your car maintained with a regular car maintenance service.

Since the best way to keep your car in tip-top shape is to follow the regular car maintenance service prescribed by your car’s manufacturer in your owner’s manual, it is helpful to brush up on exactly what kind of maintenance your vehicle will need, and when. This can differ from car to car. One manufacturer might recommend that you get your oil changed every 3,000 miles while another might say that 10,000 is perfectly fine. Again, the only way to know for sure is to familiarize yourself with that little book in your car’s glove box.

If you ever end up with questions about car maintenance, don’t hesitate to call or come in to see us at Fort Collins Foreign Car Service. As your local auto shop we strive to provide the very best service to our customers in Fort Collins and all of northern Colorado. That includes providing sound advice to keep your car running longer and better. Of course, we also provide professional car maintenance service and repair services as well if you don’t feel like getting all down and dirty yourself.

We always recommend that you take care of potential issues as soon as they arise in order to keep your car from bearing more wear and tear than is necessary. We know that it can be easy to procrastinate and put off bringing your vehicle in for service at your local auto shop, but we want you to trust us that we will never try to sell you something you don’t need or upsell you on a repair which isn’t required.

Hopefully knowing this will help you fight away that urge to put off bringing in your vehicle when you realize there is an issue. This can be huge. Driving for even a few miles in a vehicle that has an engine or body problem could seriously exacerbate the problem and lead to other failures as well. Not that we’re trying to bully you into bringing your car into the local auto shop, but driving on a car with a repairable issue is likely to really wreak havoc on the vehicle. Bring it in and let us take care of you with our professional repair and car maintenance service.
