Keeping your car up and running doesn’t involve much guesswork, unless you lost or don’t have an owner’s manual. Fortunately, there’s a general guide you can follow to keep your car properly serviced. Here’s a general service schedule from us here at Hassett Pre-Owned so you can keep your car running at peak performance.
Drivers would do well to check their windshield washer fluid and engine oil levels weekly, if not more often. Make sure all lights are working, including the dashboard indicator lights. Check tire inflation and condition too.
Every three months or 3,000 miles, make sure to check the oil, engine air filter, power steering fluid, automatic transmission fluid, and windshield washer fluid. Inspect the battery, cables, belts, hoses, and exhaust as well.
In addition to the previously listed items, drivers should check their chassis lubrication every six months or 6,000 miles. Make sure to change the oil at this point if you haven’t already.
Most vehicles are engineered for minimal attention which is why most items can go unchecked for one year or 12,000 miles. Make sure to check the wheel alignments, steering, suspension, coolant, brakes, and wiper blades.
Over caring for your car won’t hurt, but neglecting general service can lead to disaster.
Mustang. The name says it all— unbridled power… quick as the wind… and incredibly nimble on any terrain. This latest edition, from a long line of pedigree winners, is leaner and meaner… and, as expected, is decked out with the hottest technology trappings and creature comforts— many as standard features. Unmistakably, this pony is sleeker than the last stable of Mustangs, with a wider track on chassis that’s primed for the type of powerful, spirited driving that makes you want to hit the open road and never back off on the accelerator. The new Mustang GT Convertible is comfortably cool, versatile to drive, and designed with a fresh look and style that will definitely turn heads. You’ve got to check it out in person.
When Ford first introduced the Fiesta to the United States in the 1980s, it definitely was not a contender for best styling. Now, the Fiesta is in its sixth generation and just received a stylish and much-needed update for the 2014 model year. For 2014, the Fiesta gets a new Fusion-like grille, which gives it incredibly stylish good looks. And, with the top-of-the-line Titanium trim, you’ll be riding in near luxury. Who knew that could ever happen in a tiny subcompact car?
The Titanium trim gives you heated leather seats, a Sony audio system, ambient lighting, chrome exterior trim, black grille, rearview camera, rear parking sensors, keyless ignition/entry, and HD radio. All of this for a sticker price of right around $20,000. And you’ll be saving on gas too with an EPA-estimated 45 mpg on the highway. Want to get behind the wheel of the stylish 2014 Ford Fiesta?
