PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE, Alexandria, VA

Car Care Aware

Courtesy of the Automotive Service Association

The following simple and inexpensive preventive checks will greatly extend the life of the vehicle, ensure safer operation and even benefit the environment.

Always consult your owner's manual for individual service schedules because maintenance requirements vary by manufacturer.

  • Always consult your owner's manual, but a good rule of thumb is to have the oil filter changed regularly - every 3,000 to 4,000 miles.
  • Have all fluids checked, including brake, power steering, transmission/transaxle, windshield washer solvent and antifreeze. These fluids play a large role in the safety and performance of the vehicle.
  • Check tire inflation. Under-inflated tires can result in a loss of fuel efficiency. This is the least expensive form of preventive and safety maintenance. Tires should be checked once a month.
  • Keep your engine tuned. A fouled spark plug or plugged/restricted fuel injector can reduce fuel efficiency by as much as 30 percent.
  • Have the chassis lubricated frequently. This step extends the life of the moving components of the vehicle's suspension system.
  • Check battery cables and posts for corrosion and clean them as needed. The battery fluid also should be checked and filled if it is low, unless it is a maintenance-free battery.
  • Have the lighting system checked frequently, including headlights, turn signals, and brake and taillights.
  • Check windshield washer blades for cracks, tears and windshield contact. Replace them at least once a year, or sooner if streaking begins.
  • Inspect engine belts regularly. Worn belts will affect the engine performance. Look for cracks and missing sections or segments.
  • Have the air filtration system checked frequently. The air filter should be checked every other oil change for clogging or damage. This system ensures that the vehicle is performing at its peak condition.

Testimonials

Max the owner is amazing!! I feel like every time I go there it's like having your dad look at your car you know that you're going to get a truthful and honest diagnostic and actual care of your car. His work and labor is very reasonable in comparison to most luxury Auto repair shops in the northern Virginia market and they're always trying to give you options and alternatives to providing the most effective cost based on your budget giving you both a high option and low option of materials work and labor shows the good genuine honest loyal business trade and sportsmanship that Max puts into his business. I've been to a lot of shops in the area including their sister shop in Springfield which is just as amazing in the aspect of the work but just as good quality work. I will say the landmark Auto on Duke Street isn't the most posh posh in the aspect of the seating area to wait for the work for your car to be done, but the people there are very much like family very friendly and always willing to make sure they provide you the most cost-effective quality work for the amount of money that you're looking to spend along with options. It is truly the best auto repair shop in northern Virginia for Mercedes, Porsche, Audi, BMW and Volkswagen. Landmark Auto group becomes your family as all of the customers there are mostly returning and or loyal customers who come back, Max is the most loyal businessmen that I know in the northern Virginia market! Thanks guys you make one of the most nervous stressful moments in one's life dealing with their car and issues that it may be having one of the most relaxing professional experiences that I've ever experienced. Max you're the best!!
