Maintain Your Car & Help the Environment

Following the manufacturer’s service recommendations for maintaining your car will help prolong the life of your vehicle and allow it to run more efficiently.

  • Change your air filter as needed. Proper airflow will help maintain your car’s acceleration and performance. It also improves your car’s emissions.
  • Check spark plugs and replace when needed. Faulty or dirty plugs can cause engine misfiring, which wastes gas.
  • Keep your tires properly inflated. You should check you tire pressure at least once a month. This will help improve your gas mileage and prevent excess wear and tear on your tires.

  • Take your car to an environmentally-friendly car wash that uses a water recycling system
