PHOENIX, Feb. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Oil changes are an essential element of extending vehicle longevity. Regular oil changes will keep the engine running smoothly and efficiently for years to come. Previous standards stated oil should be changed every 3,000 miles. These standards have been recently called into question as some manufacturers recommend larger intervals of 5,000-7,000 miles. As an additional factor, car owners should never let more than 6 months pass without an oil change even if they have not exceeded the recommend mileage.
Establishing a good relationship with a skilled and trustworthy mechanic will be huge dividends in the long run. Cars will need yearly maintenance. That is unavoidable. Maintenance is also an important part of keeping running well past 100,000 miles. Hastings & Hastings recommends building a relationship with a mechanic who can perform regular tune-ups and vital repairs should they be necessary.
Further, Hastings & Hastings advises car owners to pay close attention to their vehicles, keying in on potential issues before they become major problems. Ignoring sticky breaks or strange squealing sounds could lead to massive repair bills down the road.
"A car is a huge investment. I know when I make a massive investment like that, I want it to pay off. This is why I work to keep my car on the road as long as possible. Extending vehicle longevity definitely takes some hard work, but boy is it worth it!" said David Hastings, the founder of Hastings & Hastings.
