Given the conditions in the Saint Cloud, MN area, it is essential that preventative maintenance is carried out at the recommended period. At the 22,500 mile service period, the vehicle manufacturers require several safety inspections and preventive maintenance.

We are able to bring you the highest level of service and properly maintain your vehicle at a fraction of what a dealer would charge.

Our 22,500 Mile Service Period include the following:

Every 22,500 mile service, we run a Quality Assurance Road Test to ensure your vehicle is performing and handling at its ideal level. Should our mechanics hear or feel something out of normal, they will be able to check your vehicle once they put it on the lift. If our Mechanics don’t find what they had heard or felt during the 22,500-mile service inspection, we will let you know what we encountered during the road test to ask whether you prefer additional diagnostics.

  • Steering Linkage and Boots – inspect linkage and boots in steering. Too Much play in the steering could be dangerous. It may inhibit the speed of your reaction in an emergency situation and cause issues like excessive tire wear.
  • Drive Shaft Boots – ensure vehicle boots are properly sealed, do not have any damage or tears, and are not dry rotted. This ensures that that the drive shafts stay properly lubricated and can save an expensive repair or replacing the Drive Shaft.
  • Brake Linkage/Drums/Pads/Disc – routine and thorough inspection of the brake system will ensure you can safely stop your vehicle each and every time. Brake failures could cost a lot of money for the repair. A brake pad that gets too low and unable to make it to the next service period, if not caught, could wear into your rotor and become an extremely costly repair.
  • Engine Air Filter – air filters are occasionally able to be cleaned. They also need to be replaced periodically. The Engine Air Filter keeps debris out of the engine and ensures proper air intake through your engine. Depending on where you live, your air filter might need replacing more often. Should your engine air filter become clogged, it will significantly reduce the engine’s performance and fuel mileage.
  • Ball Joints and Dust Covers – too much play from the ball joints can cause excessive tire wear, poor performance, and handling. If not caught early enough, it can result in failure, additional suspension damages, and can leave you stranded on the side of the road. Ensuring there is no excessive play from the suspension can save the cost of a very expensive repair and prevent a breakdown.
  • Replace Engine Oil and Filter – regularly changing the vehicle’s engine oil per manufacturer’s guidelines is an important part of maintaining the vehicle. The oil keeps internal parts of the engine greased, and a filter gathers all the debris by preventing damage. It is an essential regular maintenance item to ensure the performance and lifespan of your vehicle.
  • Tire Inspection, Rotation, and Inflation – proper tire inflation is vital for handling and safety. Mechanics will check your tires to ensure proper positioning for optimal performance and lifespan of the tires. Tire rotations are performed periodically, so all four tires wear in a uniform manner. Unless you rotate your tires, they are going to wear unevenly, and it will require replacement more often. Correct inflation of the tires is vital for the proper performance and wear. Properly inflated tires also improve fuel mileage.
  • Reset Maintenance Reminder – reset maintenance reminder during your service to ensure you are properly notified for the next service period.

There’s a lot more to servicing a vehicle than just changing the oil and rotating tires. Appropriate preventative maintenance will save money and time.
