Your car has reached 45,000 miles – it’s time for a service.

Good news – the 45K service is not as extensive as the previous one.

Basically it’s similar to the 15,000-mile service. While the details vary depending on the model and make, typically, manufacturers recommend following for the 45,000-mile service:

  • change oil and filter  (we recommend synthetic oil for most cars)
  • rotate tires
  • engine air filter  should be replaced
  • cabin air filter should be replaced
  • visually inspect belts, brakes, hoses
  • check for leaking fluids
  • check for any abnormal / unusual noises
  • safety inspection recommended by the manufacturer

But there is a bit more – your car has gone some distance, and stuff is starting to wear out, so most manufacturers also recommend that we check:

  • brake pads – it’s possible you will need new brake pads, particularly if you live or drive in a hilly area – there are parts of Castro Valley that will cause additional wear of your brakes
  • tires –particularly if you live in the hilly area of Castro Valley, your tires may need to be replaced; if you own a hybrid, regenerative braking  system of  hybrids causes additional wear on the tires

But overall, the forty-five thousand mile service is usually pretty quick, and at Adams Quality Automotive we do our best to make it easy and painless. So give us a call, or schedule an appointment online.  Adams Quality Automotive Castro Valley repair and service garage is conveniently located on Lake Chabot Rd, about a mile from the Eden Hospital.
