Is It Time for a Tune-Up?
How long has it been since you took your car, truck, or SUV into a shop for a tune-up? If you don’t know, then it’s probably been too long already. There are some guidelines for how often your vehicle should get preventative maintenance and tune-ups. The year of your car, how much you drive, and several other factors will affect it. However, you should have the heating and AC checked yearly. If your vehicle has more than 75,000 miles on it, professionals recommend yearly maintenance as well. For cars with fewer miles on them, you should get them checked at least every 10,000 miles. The general rule of thumb with automotive maintenance is to get it early and get it often.
