Is Your VW Ready for Winter?

Your family Volkswagen is one of your most proud possessions.  Maybe you have been a VW owner since the 1960’s and you were the envy of all your “hippy” friends with your bug or bus.  Perhaps you have been “bitten by the bug” in recent years and have just purchased your first make and model of the famous German vehicle.

Volkswagens need TLC.  They require maintenance by a trained mechanic who has worked with them for years.  The tune up, the oil change, the battery, and the brake system are unique to some of these classic cars.  Make sure that you have your prized VW managed by a true professional mechanic on a regular basis.

Change of Season - Change of Oil.

As summer leaves us for the cooler days of autumn we can also remind ourselves to do other things that impact our lives.  Change your home’s air filters.  Change the batteries in your smoke detector.  Fertilize your lawn.  Change your oil.  That’s right, if you have been driving most of the summer without an oil change then it is high time to do so!

Why are oil changes important to the health of your vehicle?

1.  Those moving parts in your engine will simply break down without lubrication.
2.  Friction + Heat equals disaster for your engine parts.
3.  Fresh oil breaks down the dirt that forms on your engine.
4.  Poor lubrication leads to poorer gas mileage.
5.  Simply put, routine maintenance will keep your car on the road longer.

Ahhh, routine maintenance.  Now, there is something that many of us put off for various reasons.  Fall is NOT the time to be doing that.  It is the routine maintenance that keeps you from having to come up with $15,000 dollars to buy a new car!  Make an appointment with Raleigh’s routine maintenance car repair pro…Jim Liacos at Jim’s Auto Services.  Call (919) 824-4566.
