Our team of highly-trained staff are here to support you. We’re here for many questions that need answers, and that includes some frequently asked questions about our service center, when you should have services, and why you should service your vehicle with us!
How Often Should I have My Oil Changed?
One of the most common questions we are asked is when you should have the oil on your Hyundai changed. The answer will ultimately depend on your driving habits but we recommend about every 5,000 miles with the right engine oil, and we make sure to provide you with the highest quality grade and the one that fits your Hyundai vehicle specifically. If you’re a heavy commuter and road-tripper, you might want to think about oil changes at a more frequent level as you’re using your vehicle more, and your engine is taking on more daily use. That can lead to buildup in your different components that help your vehicle run. Of course, we’ll guide you through it and discuss your individual needs so your Hyundai serves you first and foremost.
What is a Tire Rotation and Why is it Important?
With your tires, you want to ensure they last as long as possible before having to replace them (a service we can help you with as well), but to do that, you need to have regular tire rotations. When you rotate your tires, you are redistributing the tread across the four wheels so that they don’t wear down as quickly in the same position. When we rotate the tires we are making sure every tire gets even tread and you maximize performance and longevity out of each.
When Do I Know I Need Brake Repair?
Generally, there are a few components to brake repair that you need to know. If you’re low on brake fluid you’ll see your brake warning light come on. When that does come in and see us as soon as possible. It might not just be brake fluid, either. Common brake services include replacing brake pads and rotors. There are some common warning signs which includes a squeaking or squealing noise from your vehicle when you brake, or if you feel pulsating from your brake petal as you brake. Also, if your stopping power isn’t as strong as it was before, that’s another sign. We can have our team assist you and get your Hyundai outfitted with the right brake pads and rotors, so you’re confident and safe on the road.
What is a Wheel Alignment?
Alignments are also an important service to make sure your Hyundai gets at regular intervals. It’s realigning the suspension so your tires are connecting with the road in the right way thanks to the placement of the wheels. This is needed to give you a smooth ride and if you notice your vehicle is being jerked in another direction and you have to steer harder to keep it in a straight line, you might need an alignment. It also will keep your fuel economy high like many of these other services because your Hyundai is working in the most efficient manner possible.
When Should I Have My Car Battery Changed?
Battery services are also among the most common types of services we see here at Freysinger Hyundai. Getting your battery replaced every three years or so is often a good idea. You’re going to know when you need it replaced. Either a warning light on your dash will come on, or your vehicle will have a harder time starting when you press or turn the ignition in your Hyundai. Often in the colder months if your vehicle is always taking longer to start up, that’s a sign. We have all the right batteries for your Hyundai and can easily replace them for you with long-lasting batteries that give your Hyundai optimal performance.
How do I know What Services I Need?
If you’re hearing any unordinary noises or something feels off driving your vehicle, you should schedule an appointment with us either online or by calling. Our team can diagnose and figure out the cause, and move forward with a plan to repair your vehicle. As for the routine services, there’s suggested intervals in your owner’s manual that we always recommend following because that’s from the manufacturer and based on normal driving habits, usually the best course of action. If you’re unsure our team is here to advise you on the right services you need and help you make the right decision for your vehicle so you experience the long-lasting quality for as long as you’re driving it.
