Tire Pressure and Tread Depth
Well-maintained tires are integral to a safe, fuel-efficient ride, so make it a habit to inspect your tires often. Check the pressure in your tires every month, and before long trips or carrying extra load. Don’t forget to check the spare, as well!
Oil & Filter
The motor oil in your vehicle’s engine serves a whole slew of different functions, and keeping it clean is vital for good engine health. Depending on your car and what kind of oil you’re using, you may need to change both the oil & oil filter as often as every 3 months or 3000 miles, although new Chevrolet models can last as long as a year or 10,000 miles. Your vehicle service expert will let you know if the oil needs changing when you bring your vehicle in for an inspection.
Depending on your vehicle alignment and your regular driving habits, the tread wear patterns on your tires may vary between the front and back tires, or even from one side of the tread to the other.
