Careers at Good Works Auto Repair in Tempe, AZ
Why is Good Works Auto Repair the best in the industry? Easy, it’s because of our employees. We know that it is impossible to make our customers happy if our employees aren’t happy. That’s why we lock up the shop on weekends, do our best to work with our employees’ schedules, and provide a caring, respectful work environment. The Good Works team isn’t just about working together, we’re more like a family – a family with common values like honesty, integrity, and a genuine interest in the lives of those in whom we come in contact. To some, it might sound corny, but if you get a real sense of satisfaction from doing a job right – every repair, every time – you’ll fit in well with our family.
When Should You Service Your Vehicle?
As a responsible car owner, you know that keeping your vehicle maintained is important for your own safety as well as that of your passengers and everyone on the road with you. But, do you know exactly when or how often you should service your vehicle?
Many people don’t, and that’s when it’s time to talk to your favorite mechanic or service advisor at your local auto repair shop. Every vehicle has a recommended service interval schedule that varies by make, model, and manufacturer. If you don’t already know what that schedule looks like, your mechanic can help you make sure everything gets completed on time and nothing gets missed.
Service timing and frequency can also be affected by where you live as well as your driving habits. For example, if you live in Arizona or another area with extreme summer temperatures, things like car batteries and windshield wipers often wear out quickly and may need to be replaced more frequently. Or, if you drive a lot of miles for work or pleasure, you may need to service your vehicle more often than others.
When to Service Your Vehicle
In general, however, you should service your vehicle at the following intervals:
- 3 months/ 3,000 miles
- 6 months/ 6,000 miles
- 9 months/ 9,000 miles
- 12 month/ 12,000 miles
For a full list of recommended maintenance items and their service frequency, check out this service interval schedule. Here are some of the most common items to be checked, inspected, or replaced at each interval:
- 3 months/ 3,000 miles: Check automatic transmission, power steering, and windshield washer fluids and refill if needed. Inspect the battery, cables, lights, belts, and hoses for wear and tear. Change engine oil and filter and check other filters.
- 6 months/ 6,000 miles: This interval includes everything from the 3 month/ 3,000 mile schedule plus chassis lubrication and checking windshield wiper blades. Those of you living through Arizona’s HOT summer weather know that wipers often need to be replaced at this interval, not simply inspected.
- 9 months/ 9,000 miles: This includes everything from the previous intervals except chassis lubrication if that was done at 6 months/ 6,000 miles.
- 12 months/ 12,000 miles: Maintenance items often inspected and/or replaced at this interval include the brakes, coolant/antifreeze, cabin air filter, spark plugs, and suspension components, along with everything from the previous intervals.
