With contact free service, you will have no trouble at all remaining safe and comfortable, while still caring for your vehicle.

Are there any benefits to frequent servicing?

There are MANY benefits of frequent servicing. One of the best ways to ensure that your vehicle properly serves you for years to come, is to have routine maintenance performed. By getting oil changes, tire rotations, brake inspections and so much more, you can really extend the life and service of your vehicle.

How will I know if it is time for my vehicle to be serviced?

Sometimes it can be hard to tell if your vehicle needs a little attention. Often times, your vehicle may make a noise, or you may smell something that will alert you that it may be time to give it some attention. Additionally, keeping a close eye on the dashboard will help you to ensure that nothing goes unnoticed. However, if none of these common queues arise, it is always best to consult your vehicles owner manual for the recommended service schedule. By utilizing this schedule you can be sure that you don't miss something of importance.

How often should I get an oil change?

Getting an oil change is one of the quickest services that you can get. Knowing when to get one really depends on the oil that you use in your vehicle. If you are using traditional oil, then we recommend getting it changed every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. If you use synthetic oil, then you can usually wait every 10,000 miles to have it changed.

How often should I get my brakes checked?

Getting your brakes checked is another simple service that we provide. You may want to have your brakes checked by us at least once or twice a year.

How often should I have my tires rotated?

Though this seems like a minor service, it is important to ensure that your tires are wearing evenly. We recommend getting your tires rotated every 5,000 miles to ensure that you are getting the full life out of them.

Do I need to schedule an appointment to have my vehicle service?

We both accept appointments, and allow for walk-ins. We think it is always best to schedule an appointment if you can, that way we can set aside the time to care for your vehicle. If there is time in our schedule we can fit you in without an appointment as well.

At Village Subaru, we urge the Belmont and Hudson areas to reach out to us today with any questions or concerns. Schedule service with us today!
