Here at Kernersville Auto Center, we use top-quality products for all our services. When we change oil in a vehicle, the replacement oil we use is from Havoline. Why? Well, Havoline creates lubricating products we trust. In fact, it is what we recommend to our friends and family. Here are a few reasons why using high-quality products matter:
Keep Your Engine Running Longer
Oil is the lifeblood of your car. It is certainly the most important fluid in your vehicle! If you haven’t changed your oil according to manufacturer recommendations, you could be putting your engine at risk. Over time, the dirt on the roads can build up in your oil. A filter only helps so much. The only way to clean the system is to flush out the old oil and replace it with new oil. When you change your oil, you reduce the strain on the engine that dirt causes. So, it can increase the lifespan of your engine. If you don’t change your oil, your engine will eventually seize up and stop working.
Several manufacturers including GM, Ford, Chrysler, Porsche, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, VW, and Fiat recommend Havoline to keep your vehicle running longer. Of course, this does not mean that you have to use Havoline oil in your vehicle. However, we believe that this company’s history of excellence speaks for itself.
You can choose conventional or synthetic motor oil for your oil change. When we change oil in our own cars, we typically use synthetic. Although it is pricier, it is engineered to work better. Also, it doesn’t need to be changed as frequently. Thus, over time the cost is about the same. Our mechanics can explain your options and give you pricing for both conventional and synthetic options.
Change Oil for Improved Gas Mileage
Did you know that changing your motor oil can actually improve your gas mileage? The Department of Energy reports that oil changes using quality products can improve your fuel economy by 1-2%. Over time, that savings will add up.
Keep in mind that while you are here, we can also perform several maintenance services to improve your gas mileage. For example, we can check that your tires are properly inflated and rotated. We can also do a fluid check, replace your brakes, and much more. We’ll top off any fluid that is low and give you an estimate for any work that needs to be done. Additionally, we can determine why a check engine light is on. We have ASE-Certified mechanics with extensive experience working on a wide range of vehicle types. We’ll make recommendations based on the vehicle age, your driving habits, and other factors. When we have finished caring for your vehicle, treat it to a state-of-the-art car wash! We even have options available for monthly plans with unlimited visits! Your vehicle should look as good as it performs!
Saving Money with Oil Changes
Some people think motor oil changes are an unnecessary expense. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. When you purchase a vehicle, the annual and quarterly car maintenance needs to become part of your budget. If you don’t properly maintain your vehicle today, you will face large bills down the road – guaranteed. When we see cars with major engine and transmission problems, it is often because the owners didn’t maintain them. A few dollars today can save you thousands of dollars tomorrow.
We can help you save even more money. Here at Kernersville Auto Center, we have a loyalty program for our valued customers. Whenever you bring your car or other vehicle in for a service, you’ll earn points. You can redeem these points for car washes, free oil changes, and discounted services.
