What Does It Mean If My Check Engine Light Comes On?
Your vehicle’s check engine light turning on can be for a number of reasons, most of which will require a mechanic to diagnose. It might just be something simple, like a loose gas cap, or a more serious matter requiring repairs. If the check engine light comes on while you’re driving, don’t panic. See if the car is operating any differently and have it inspected to prevent long-term problems.
How Often Should I Rotate My Tires?
You should aim to rotate your tires every oil change, or after every 5,000-6,000 miles. When you rotate your tires, you are supporting even tread wear, which helps improve your vehicle's handling, reduces noise and vibration, and extends the life of the tires.
How Often Do I Need To Change The Oil In My Vehicle?
While there are many variables that affect how often an oil change is needed (climate, conditions, highway or street driving, etc.), you can typically expect to change out your oil anywhere between 5,000-7,000 miles, or around every 6 months.
Why Should I Service My Vehicle At A Car Dealership?
When you bring your vehicle to our Mitsubishi service center, you enjoy the benefits of highly-trained technicians who specialize in all things Mitsubishi, along with state-of-the-art equipment. We use Genuine OEM parts in our repairs so you can guarantee everything is safe to last and will lead to your car's optimal performance.
When Should I Replace My Car’s Fuel Filter?
We recommend changing your fuel filter for older vehicles around every 25,000 miles. Modern vehicles, however, may be able to go longer because it takes more time for rust, dirt, and debris to build up and clog the filter.
Do I Need An Appointment To Get My Vehicle Serviced?
No, you don’t need an appointment to get your vehicle serviced at our Mitsubishi service center. Walk-ins are accepted, just be aware of wait times varying based on the time of day. We do encourage scheduling a service appointment beforehand so that we can accommodate your schedule and needs.
Why Choose Genuine Mitsubishi Parts?
The genuine OEM auto parts we use in our service center are designed to fit your Mitsubishi model and will keep that area of your car and other associated parts running in their best condition. OEM parts are more reliable for your vehicle and tend to last longer compared to after-market parts.
What Should I Do If I Get A Recall Notice?
If you think your vehicle is part of a safety recall, get in touch with your manufacturer or service center as soon as possible. The recall may only be precautionary or require immediate action. Our Mitsubishi service consultants can check the status of your recall notice and advise on what to do next.
How Often Should I Have My Brakes Checked?
A general rule of thumb is to have your brakes checked whenever you rotate your tires - around every 6 months. Not replacing your brake pads at the necessary intervals will gravely reduce your stopping power, leading to wear on your brake discs, and can result in costly repairs in the future.
