When to Service Your Vehicle

By taking care of your vehicle and performing regular maintenance, your car last for many years to come. However, it can sometimes be difficult to know when you need to have maintenance done. Here are a few suggestions to help you know when to have service performed on your vehicle whether you do it yourself or schedule an appointment in our Service Center

·         Oil Change. This is the most common service you will have done on your car. The standard recommendation has long been every 3,000 miles or 3 months, but for many cars, this interval is longer. To know how often you need your oil changed, look for the recommended service schedule in your owner's manual.

·         Windshield Wipers. While not changing your windshield wipers usually won't cause anything else on your car to break, it is dangerous since old wipers won't clear your window as well as new wipers will. Auto experts recommend getting new wipers every six months or so. If your wipers are leaving streaks or stuttering, it is time to replace them.

·         Tires. We all know about the penny trick to check the tread depth on tires. If you can see the top of Lincoln's head, you need to replace your tires. A resource for looking at tires is the Toyota Tire Center

·         Brakes. Your brakes are one of the most important parts in your car. If you hear any squealing sounds when braking or your car just doesn't seem to be stopping as quickly, it may be time to get new brakes. Either way, you should have them inspected as soon as possible.

If you want to have any of these services done on your car, don't hesitate to make an appointment with the friendly service department here at Royal Moore Toyota, serving Hillsboro, Portland, Beaverton, and Tigard.
