Change the Air Filters

If you want your vehicle to work as well as it should, you need to change the air filters on time. You have multiple sets of air filters in your car that you have to take care of. For example, you have a set of air filters in your engine. They are responsible for preventing debris from entering your engine, which would otherwise impact its efficiency. Then, you have a set of air filters for your cabin. They are responsible for preventing debris from entering your cabin, which would otherwise make it hard for the people in your car to breathe. You need to change the air filters on time, and it would be our pleasure to help you with that.

Check the Battery 

Next, you need to make sure that you check the battery as well. The battery is responsible for helping your engine start. Your battery is also responsible for power in the internal electronic components of your vehicle. In general, you could expect your battery to last between three and five years. If your battery is starting to get to that point, it may be time to get a new one. You should visit us today. We can test your battery to make sure it is working as it should. If your battery is having a difficult time holding a charge, we can help you find a new one.

Test the Transmission

Inspect the Brakes

Finally, you also need to check your brakes. Of course, you want your car to come to a complete stop quickly. If someone steps in front of you, you need to slam on the brakes, and your car must have stopped as quickly as possible. There are multiple components of your brakes that have to work together to make this happen. For example, you need to make sure that your brake pads are working well. You also have to make sure that your brake rotors are not worn out. If your brake fluid is a bit low, we can top that off for you as well. Count on the team from C&S Subaru to help you take care of your brakes. We are always available to help you.
