Even the best auto parts wear out eventually, but whether you’ve bought a pre-owned model or chosen something from our Heritage | MileOne Autogroup new car inventory, you can help extend the life of your parts. Start with these tips from our service experts!

Tips for Auto Part Care

These are our top three tips for making the parts in your Jeep® SUV, Honda sedan, or other vehicle last longer.

Don’t delay routine maintenance. While you may not see the signs immediately, routine vehicle maintenance can do a lot for your parts. For instance, oil changes ensure that engine parts are properly lubricated so they don’t wear out as fast, and regular tire rotations help your tires wear more evenly and last longer.

Pay attention to the temperature. Any temperature extremes can be damaging to your vehicle parts. If it’s cold outside, make sure to let your engine warm up properly so the parts don’t get overworked. In hot weather, try to keep your vehicle out of the sun as much as possible to protect paint, upholstery, and more.

Drive carefully and mindfully. How you drive has a big impact on your auto parts! Fast, hard braking will wear your brakes out sooner, overly fast acceleration will put more wear and tear on your engine parts, potholes or bumps can damage your tires, and the list goes on. Driving carefully can go a long way to helping you get the most from your vehicle’s parts.
