How Do Rochesterians Care for Their Vehicles?

March 13th, 2024

If you live in Rochester or have recently moved to the area, then you may notice that the vehicles on the road vary in age, with some being older and some being new, but not brand new. This is because Rochesterians are known for taking good care of their vehicles so that they can last and they can get the most out of them over time. According to Porch Group Media, the average length of owning new and used vehicles has increased by 60% in the last 10 years. Below are ways they maintain their vehicles and you should, also, for best performance.

Keep Up With Oil Changes

One of the best things that you can do with any vehicle is to maintain oil changes periodically. Most oil changes are required between 3,000 and 5,000 miles for traditional gas vehicles. Those who own diesel vehicles can push this maintenance a little further. As you accumulate more miles on your vehicle, you’ll want to adjust your oil changes to services that target high mileage for engine protection.

Manage Tire Rotations

Being able to get the most out of your tires is also very important, so you want to have tire rotations on your vehicle regularly. In most cases, this is done with the oil change, and it allows the technician to check on the life of the tire and their current condition. If you need new tires for your vehicle, then you’ll be notified right away and they can even help you determine which tires are the right size. What you want to do is avoid any accidents. According to Just Great Lawyers, more than 2.3 million people are sent to the hospital because of motor vehicle-related injuries, and those can be related to tire conditions.

Winterize Vehicles

Since Rochester can see some pretty wet and cold winters, you must winterize your vehicle when you take it in for service in the fall. If you need to have snow tires put in, then your auto shop can do that for you. They’ll also add anti-freeze and other liquids that will protect your engine when the temperatures get below freezing. This is also the time to check the life of your battery. If it’s starting to go downhill, then you’ll want to replace it before the winter so you aren’t left stranded in the cold when your car won’t start.

High Mileage Service

Once your vehicle gets around 75,000 miles, 100,000 miles, and 150,000 miles, there are some services that you need your auto shop to do so that your engine, transmission, and other systems are protected. They will provide ample tune-ups at this time that include engine coil replacements and spark plug changes. These will lose power over time due to corrosion and natural wear and tear. What you don’t want to do is let them sit for long periods of time misfiring, or it could cause some issues in the engine.

Annual Inspection

It’s vital to the health of your vehicle that you do at least one full annual inspection each year. During those 30 points or more inspections, technicians will look at everything under the engine bay, the cabin, the undercarriage, and your tires. According to Energy Education, the driveshaft absorbs movements, allowing two separate parts to move without breaking drive train components in the process, which is something they will look for. They are looking to see if anything is wearing down too fast and needs to be replaced immediately. You’ll get a full report after they do the inspection to let you know what needs to be changed and what they did.

Make Sure You Care For Your Vehicle

If you’re new to the Rochester area or planning to move there soon, then make sure you find an auto shop in the area that you like and trust. You’ll need them to help keep your vehicles going throughout all the weather that the area experiences. A good auto shop with regular service will save you from having to replace your vehicle before it’s time.
