OIL CHANGE & THE ENGINE OIL LIFE SYSTEM
If your engine is the heart of your vehicle, oil is its lifeblood. Driving around with dirty oil or not enough oil can shorten the life of your engine. Over time, repeated heating and cooling as well as the accumulation of particles can make oil thicker. Not only can this decrease its ability to flow (also known as viscosity), it can leave harmful deposits in your engine and cause extensive damage. Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac Certified Service technicians are trained to understand how your vehicle uses oil and how it monitors oil life. An oil change from a Certified Service expert not only gives you great service, convenience and a great price, you also receive the added value of knowing that nobody knows your vehicle better. Head to your Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac Certified Service dealer when it's time for your vehicle's next oil change.
BRAKE SERVICE & BRAKE REPAIR
Stopping power is crucial to a safe and successful driving experience. When you need brake service, visit your local Chevy, Buick, GMC or Cadillac dealer, where the Certified Service experts can recommend quality new brakes, like Professional DuraStop components from ACDelco. Whether you need brake repair or brake replacement, your Certified Service technician can help you get safely and confidently back on the road..
NEW TIRES & TIRE SERVICE
Far more than four round rubber objects, the tires on your vehicle were specifically designed or chosen for your vehicle to handle a variety of driving and weather conditions. This careful attention to detail makes your tires one of the most important safety features on your car, truck or crossover.
TIRE WEAR & TIRE REPLACEMENT
TYPES OF TIRE WEAR - Tire wear depends on several factors, including your driving style and tire maintenance habits. One sure way to know when tire replacement is needed is when treadwear indicators appear. A tire's built in treadwear indicators look like narrow strips of smooth rubber across the tread and become visible as the tire surface wears.
TIRE PRESSURE & WHEEL ALIGNMENT
Air is a gas, expanding when heated and contracting when cooled. For most of North America, fall and early winter are especially important times for checking tire pressure as the ambient temperature falls, tire pressure goes down. Regular tire rotation and wheel alignment checks is an important step in saving money and staying safe on the road. If your vehicle is pulling to the right or left and you must continually adjust the steering wheel, your alignment could be off. Another common problem is uneven wear on your vehicle's tires. Rotating your tires may even out wear patterns, so you can get the most life out of them. If you notice either of these tire-related problems, bring your vehicle in to the Certified Service experts at your local dealer to fix the problem.
Did you know your Chevy, Buick, GMC and Cadillac Certified Service experts are trained to inspect your vehicle's battery? Your car's battery supplies and stores electrical energy from the alternator when the vehicle's engine is running. Car batteries provide energy to start the engine, plus they supply power to accessories when the engine is not running. Both the cold of winter and the summer heat can wear on auto batteries.
