PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

Car Care Aware

Courtesy of the Automotive Service Association

The following simple and inexpensive preventive checks will greatly extend the life of the vehicle, ensure safer operation and even benefit the environment.

Always consult your owner's manual for individual service schedules because maintenance requirements vary by manufacturer.

  • Always consult your owner's manual, but a good rule of thumb is to have the oil filter changed regularly - every 3,000 to 4,000 miles.
  • Have all fluids checked, including brake, power steering, transmission/transaxle, windshield washer solvent and antifreeze. These fluids play a large role in the safety and performance of the vehicle.
  • Check tire inflation. Under-inflated tires can result in a loss of fuel efficiency. This is the least expensive form of preventive and safety maintenance. Tires should be checked once a month.
  • Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency by as much as 30 percent.
  • Have the chassis lubricated frequently. This step extends the life of the moving components of the vehicle's suspension system.
  • Check battery cables and posts for corrosion and clean them as needed. The battery fluid also should be checked and filled if it is low, unless it is a maintenance-free battery.
  • Have the lighting system checked frequently, including headlights, turn signals, and brake and taillights.
  • Check windshield washer blades for cracks, tears and windshield contact. Replace them at least once a year, or sooner if streaking begins.
  • Inspect engine belts regularly. Worn belts will affect the engine performance. Look for cracks and missing sections or segments.
  • Have the air filtration system checked frequently. The air filter should be checked every other oil change for clogging or damage. This system ensures that the vehicle is performing at its peak condition.

Kevin is very knowledgeable and goes the extra mile for you. I would not take our vehicles to anyone else for repairs and let us not forget Theresa, pleasant and accommodating, always willing to help definitely!

Being frustrated with the service and prices I have incurred at the local Mercedes Benz dealers, I decided to bring my two Mercedes to Kevin. I can not over emphasize what a pleasant, productive experience this has been for me. Kevin , the owner of Red's, is honest, trustworthy and extremely capable. He has maintained and repaired my ML350 And S Class sedan for some time. He has all the necessary tools and equipment to properly service my vehicles. His diagnostic skills are exceptional. Equally important is the fact that I am actually saving money bringing my cars to Red's. There are have been several occasions when a reminder popped up in my vehicle alerting me to a potential problem. Kevin has checked the issue and corrected it without charging me. Try doing that at Mercedes Benz. His prices are reasonable, his work is perfection, and most important, you can trust him.

Kevin was awesome! I was in need of a new mechanic because I felt like my current mechanic didn't have time or patience for me. Red's was able to get me in last minute for an inspection, but more than that was the time he invested in showing me the work that needed done to the point that I was able to "get it". I never felt pressured or rushed. Sadly because of the amount of work needing done, I ended up trading in my car for a leased car that is covered under warranty. That means I can't use Red's again, but I can and have referred friends and family there. Fantastic customer service from a knowledgeable mechanic in a beautiful and accommodating shop! 10/10!!
