Keep your family vehicle working properly by performing regular maintenance and service. While family crossovers, SUVs, and other models need just as many oil changes and other forms of maintenance as any other vehicle, there are a few things that are especially important for family vehicles. These include checking the brakes, cabin maintenance, tire care, and more. Read on to find out why maintaining family vehicles is so important.
Brake maintenance is key for family vehicles, as it not only maintains stopping power but also gives you added peace of mind. Your brakes should be checked at least once a year, but you should also bring your car in if you notice squealing when you stop or pulsing in the pedal. You can bring your car to our Wiesner of Huntsville service center for a brake check or for new brake pads and/or rotors.
Checking the HVAC and cabin air filter is also important to keep your family comfortable on the road. You should replace the cabin air filter every 15,000 to 25,000 miles, approximately once every year or two. The HVAC system should also be cleaned and inspected, and the air conditioning recharged.
Tires are especially important to service on family vehicles to maintain safety. You should check tire pressure with every change of season, but also look for tire wear. If there’s any cracking, bulging, or bald spots on the tread, you’ll need new tires. Our service team can inspect your tires to make sure they’re still working properly, replacing tires when necessary.
