30K - 60K - 90K Maintenance
Avoid high cost repairs with regular maintenance services - Fluids break down and deteriorate, and no longer give your car the protection it requires. To ensure your car's peak performance, manufacturers recommend periodic maintenance services and fluid exchanges, such as: coolant flush, transmission fluid flush, power steering and brake flush. Following these recommended services can help save you a lot of money later on by avoiding potentially greater costs for major repairs. At Ernie's Truck and Auto Repair, we follow your manufacturer's recommendations (most will recommend 30K-60K-90K maintenance) to ensure that your vehicle is operating properly.
Performing Regular Maintenance
Don't forget the maintenance! It's the little things that count, and checking a few of these little things off your list will put you ahead of the game, and ease the pain in your wallet. Most maintenance checks only take a minute, and most maintenance tasks can be tackled in an afternoon. Don't maintain your car and you'll pay the price down the road.
