Our 127,500 Mile Service Interval includes the following:Before every 127,500 mile service we perform a Quality Assurance Road Test to ensure that your vehicle is handling and performing at its optimal level. If our Mechanics hear or feel anything out of the ordinary they will be able to inspect your vehicle once they place it on the lift. If our Mechanics do not find what they heard or felt during the 127,500 Service Interval Inspection list we will inform you what we experienced during the Road Test to inquire if you would prefer further Diagnostics. Our 127,500 mile Service Interval consist of the following services and inspections:
Brake Linkage/Drums/Pads/Disc – It is extremely important to keep your vehicle running at its top performance for the safety of you and your family. A properly working Braking System is extremely important. The harsh weather conditions in the Virginia area requires more frequent inspections of your Braking System. Routine and thorough inspections of your braking system will ensure that you are able to safely stop your vehicle each and every time. Brake failures also can cost a lot of money to repair. A brake pad that is getting too low and not able to make it to the next Service Interval if not caught can wear into your Rotor and become a very expensive repair.
Reset Maintenance Reminder - If your vehicle is equipped with a Maintenance Reminder System we will reset that during your service to ensure you are properly notified for your next Service Interval.
Ball Joints and Dust Covers - Excessive play from the Ball Joints can cause excessive tire wear, poor performance and handling. If not caught early enough can result in failure, cause further suspension damage and leave you stranded on the side of the road. Ensuring that there is no excessive play from the suspension can save the cost of a very expensive repair and prevent a break down.
Drive Shaft Boots – We ensure that your vehicles Boots are properly sealed, do not have any damage or tears, and are not dry rotted. This ensures that the drive shafts stay properly lubricated and can save an expensive repair of replacing the Drive Shaft.
Replace Engine Oil and Filter – Due to the climate in the Virginia area Vehicle Manufacturers consider us to be in harsh driving conditions. They require more frequent Oil and Filter changes. Routinely changing your vehicle’s engine oil per the manufacture’s guidelines is an essential part of properly maintaining your vehicle and keeping its warranty intact. The oil keeps the internal components of the engine lubricated and the filter collects any debris from causing any damage. This is an essential routine maintenance item to ensure performance and longevity of your vehicle.
Tire Inspection, Rotation, and Inflation – The roads in the Maryland area sometimes are not always in the best condition. Proper Tire inflation is vital for optimal handling and safety. During each Service Interval our Mechanics will inspect your tires to ensure proper placement for the best performance and longevity of your tires. Tire rotations are performed periodically so that all four tires wear evenly. If you do not rotate your tires they will wear unevenly and will require replacement more frequently. Proper inflation of your tires is essential for proper wear and performance. Properly inflated tires also improve fuel mileage.
Steering Linkage and Boots - We inspect the Linkage and Boots in your Steering. Excessive play in your steering can be dangerous. It can inhibit the speed of your response in an emergency situation and cause issues like excessive tire wear.
