The Basics of K&K Tire and Auto 7,500 Mile Service

We pride ourselves in ensuring your vehicle performs at its best possible performance level. Your safety is our top priority. It’s important this Preventative Maintenance is done at the 7,500 Mile Maintenance Period. This is the period when vehicle manufacturers require some safety checks and preventive maintenance.

Our qualified mechanics focus on performing the services as well as the repair work your vehicle requires for your safety, keeping your vehicle running at its peak performance, and making sure that your factory warranty remains intact. We are in a position to bring you the highest possible level of service as well as properly maintaining your vehicle for a fraction of what the dealer will charge.

Our 7,500 Mile Service Period includes the following:

At every 7,500-mile service, we conduct a Quality Assurance Road Test to ensure your vehicle is handling and performing at its optimum 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 7,500-mile service inspection, we will let you know what we encountered during the road test to ask whether you prefer additional diagnostics.

Our 7,500 Mile Service Period include the following:

  • Drive Shaft Boots – make sure vehicle boots are adequately sealed, have no damage or tears, and not dry rotted. This ensures the drive shafts stay properly greased, and it can save a pricey repair of replacing the Drive Shaft.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Engine Air Filters – air filters are occasionally able to be cleaned. They also need to be replaced periodically. The Engine Air Filters 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.
  • Replace Engine Oil and Filter – routinely changing your vehicle’s engine oil per the manufacturer’s recommendations is an essential component of properly maintaining the vehicle and retaining its warranty. The oil keeps internal parts of the engine greased, and a filter collects all the debris from causing damage. It is an essential routine maintenance item to ensure the performance and lifespan of the vehicle.
  • Reset Maintenance Reminder – reset maintenance reminder during your service to ensure you are properly notified for the next service period.
  • 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.

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.
