The calm before school starts up again is the perfect time to have your vehicle serviced. A service appointment catches any issues and restores your vehicle to a level of fitness necessary to handle busy daily commutes through Clarkston. What maintenance should you get? Our Bowman Commercial team has your short checklist.

Back-to-School Auto Service 101

If possible, plan your vehicle's factory-schedule maintenance for two weeks before school starts. Scheduled maintenance includes different service at different time intervals, but most auto service techs are happy to check major and minor components even when they're not scheduled for service. Those components include:

  • Engine
  • Battery
  • Oil
  • Tires
  • Brakes
  • Wipers

Play it By Ear

Your back-to-school auto service might entail more items than listed above, but these are the common culprits, so to speak. These parts receive harsh wear on a daily basis. Owing to their importance, each part should be in optimal condition. Servicing these components alone calls for:

  • Oil change
  • Filter change
  • Fresh fluids for wiper blades, battery and brakes
  • Brake tuning and repair
  • Tire rotation

A healthy car runs smoothly, uses less fuel and lives longer.
