Just as any other machine requires maintenance, your vehicle does too. Taking your car in for a routine tune-up might seem just as burdensome as having your home’s air conditioning annual maintenance call, but you’ll be glad that you took the time to do both in the long-run.
Vehicles need general services and tune-ups in order to provide preventative maintenance and correct any issues before they develop into costly repairs. No matter if you drive a modern vehicle with the latest technology or an older used car, tune-up services can help extend the life of your investment and ensure optimal performance.
If you notice that your gas mileage decreases by 10% or more, then we recommend you bring your vehicle in for a tune-up. Otherwise, follow your manual’s recommendations for maintenance.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, performing a tune-up on a car that has begun experiencing noticeable issues or has failed an emissions test can improve gas mileage by 4%. Additionally, if your tune-up finds a serious maintenance problem like a problematic oxygen sensor, you can immediately improve your fuel efficiency by up to 40%.
