Here at Lester Glenn Mazda, we want to make sure your car stays in great condition no matter where you go. That’s why our Mazda repair and service center are here to answer three maintenance questions we frequently get from our customers. 

Q: Why is car service so important?  

A: Every time you hit the road, your car experiences wear and tear. Fortunately, it’s pretty minimal on a daily basis, but over time, damage adds up.

The best way to keep your vehicle in great shape and make sure it has a long life is with regular car service. Preventative maintenance such as oil changes, filter replacements, and tire rotations will also allow your car to perform at its best.

Q: How do I know if I need service or a repair?  

A: If your car is running well and seems to be perfectly fine, it probably doesn’t need any sort of repair anytime soon. However, it could be due for service.

For example, if your car has racked up 5,000 miles or so after your last oil change, you may want to think about scheduling a service appointment. Your vehicle might also need some sort of replacement, such as a new tire or two. Be sure to check your tires often for any signs of balding.   

Q: What are the most common car repairs?  

A: Fortunately, with proper maintenance, the big components in your car will generally hold up well for a long time. Other parts, however, tend to wear out quickly, like your brake pads and spark plugs.

Of course, we can’t forget about the havoc Mother Nature can wreak on your vehicle. Weather anomalies like hail or falling tree branches can easily break or shatter your windshield, so make sure to take precautions when necessary.
