GM models are high-quality and reliable, but every vehicle needs routine maintenance.
Here’s a simple guide to take the guesswork out of scheduling service for your vehicle in La Grange, Kentucky.
Typically, it’s a good idea to bring your GM vehicle in for an oil change every six months or every 3,000-7,000 miles. However, this timeframe can vary based on your vehicle’s condition, what kind of oil you use, how much you drive, and how hard you work your vehicle. For instance, if you frequently use your Silverado 1500 for towing, it’s important to have its oil changed more often than the standard recommended interval.
Tire rotation and alignment
Tire rotation allows your GM vehicle’s tires wear down at an even rate, which helps them last longer and provide a smoother ride. Regular wheel alignments also ensure even wearing while preventing crooked steering. Typically, it’s a good idea to have the tires rotated and aligned every 6,000 miles or at every other oil change if you don’t drive very often.
Every vehicle has a series of filters that prevent debris from clogging up the works. The engine air filter should generally be replaced every 15,000, while the oil filter should be replaced every 3,000-7,000 miles.
