01 1 - 22,500-Mile-Service

Steering Linkage and Boots

We check your Steering Linkage and Boots. Excessive directional play can be risky. During an emergency situation, it can hinder the speed of your reaction and cause issues such as excessive tire wear.

Drive Shaft Boots

They ensure that your vehicle boots are fully secured, have no damage or tears, and are not rotted dry. This ensures that the drive shafts stay well lubricated and can avoid a costly fix by removing the Drive Shaft.

Brake Linkage / Drums / Pads / Disc

It is extremely important for you and your family to keep your vehicle running at its optimum output for protection. A Braking System that works properly is extremely necessary. Your Braking System needs more frequent inspections of the harsh weather conditions in the Woodbridge VA area. Routine and detailed braking system checks can ensure you can safely stop your vehicle at any time. Brake failures can also cost a great deal of money to repair. A brake pad that gets too small and cannot meet the next service period if not found will wear into the rotor and become a very expensive repair.

Engine Air Filters

Air Filters should be cleaned at times. They need to be regularly replaced too. The Air Filter System prevents contaminants out of the exhaust and ensures proper air intake into the system. Depending on where you live in Woodbridge VA area, you might need to change your Air Filter more frequently. If your Engine Air Filter is clogged, the engine output and fuel consumption will be drastically reduced. Ball joints and dust cover-excessive ball joint play will cause excessive tire wear, poor performance and handling. If not spotted early enough it will result in failure, cause additional damage to the suspension and leave you stranded on the roadside. Ensuring that the suspension does not involve excessive play can save the cost of a very expensive repair and prevent a breakdown.

Replace Engine Oil and Filter

Due to the climate in Columbia, MD area Vehicle manufacturers consider us to be in harsh driving conditions. Proper inflation of the tires is crucial to optimum handling and safety. Our Mechanics will check your tires during each service period to ensure that your tires are correctly positioned for the best efficiency and durability. Tire rotations are done routinely in such a way that all four tires are worn equally. When you don’t change your tires they will wear unevenly more often and will need replacement. Proper inflation is important for proper wear and efficiency of your tires. Additionally, properly inflated tires boost fuel mileage.

Reset Maintenance Reminder

If your car is fitted with a Maintenance Reminder System, we must reset it during your service to ensure that the next Service Interval is properly informed. There is more to maintaining the car than just changing your oil and rotating your tires. Proper preventive maintenance will save you money and time, too. We become part of the culture of Woodbridge.
