Car MaintenanceYou just purchased a new vehicle. Whether you drove it new off the lot (or new to you), you’re excited about your upgrade. More than likely, you want this vehicle to last quite a while. Well, let Auto Specialty of Lafayette, Inc. help you do just that. In order to keep your car in top condition, you need to make sure you’re on top of routine car maintenance

Note that because each vehicle is a little different in terms of “when” you need to have these services completed, you will want to check your car’s owner’s manual for the best recommendations.

Oil Change

You may think an oil change isn’t a big deal, but clean, smooth oil is essential to keeping the soul of your car (the engine) running at its best. In fact, one of the main ways you can take care of your new vehicle is to get that oil change. Most car owners get an oil change every 3,000 to 5,000 miles.

Tires Balance & Alignment

Likely, you use your car on a daily basis. Whether driving around town or long miles, each day puts a little more wear and tear on the tires. To extend the life of your tires and get the best ride, you want to rotate and balance those tires periodically. If you’re noticing signs of poor alignment, then we also recommend that you ask our auto mechanics to include tire alignment at your next visit. You don’t want poor alignment to affect other aspects of your ride (such as steering, tire wear, and so on).


Most car owners will find that they don’t need a tune-up more than once a year. However, you don’t want to skip it or forget it. Think of it as your car’s annual “wellness visit” to the doctor. It gets a few tests, a few adjustments, and you get a car that will last longer.
