Why is Routine Auto Service Important?

Do you want to keep your vehicle performing at the highest level for longer? Whether you're driving a new vehicle or one that's older, performing routine service on your vehicle is the best way to keep it in the best condition for longer. At Hyundai of Plymouth, we're here to not only provide you with said service, but we want you to know when the right time is to have your vehicle's issues taken care of. Whether it's an oil change, tire rotation, fluid replacement, battery replacement, or even changing out your windshield wiper blades, we're here to provide you with the knowledge you need to keep your vehicle in the best shape possible for longer. For the best advice about your specific vehicle, however, we suggest that you get familiar with and consult your owner's manual to learn more about manufacturer recommended service and intervals.


What Are Regular Auto Service Issues that I Should Address Every Year?

  • Oil and Filter Change: Your motor oil is responsible for protecting and lubricating the many moving parts in your engine. When the oil filter becomes too dirty, dirty oil flows through your engine as a result, which can cause it to run less efficiently or not at all. We recommend having your oil and oil filter changed any time after 5,000 miles.
  • Tire Rotations: Your tires are responsible for steering, stopping and accelerating, which is why it's important to monitor their tread and have them rotated regularly to enjoy the utmost performance out of your vehicle, especially when it comes to your snow tires and facing weather around Plymouth, MA and Quincy.
  • What Maintenance Should Be Performed Before 30,000 Miles?

    • Fuel Filter: While opinions can vary about when you should change your fuel filter, when it becomes clogged it will cause your engine to perform poorly, or not at all. That's why we suggest having your fuel filter quickly changed before 30,000 miles to ensure that your engine is working properly.
    • Air Filter: Just like the fuel filter, your air filter is responsible for letting air into your engine. When it's clogged, your engine can't perform correctly. If you live in a dusty area or around dirty roads in Cranston or Taunton, it's recommended that you change your air filter closer to 15,000 miles.

    Common Routine Service Questions and Answers

    • When Should I Change my Wiper Blades?: Your wiper blades should be changed at least once a year as they will soon stop making proper contact with the windshield, leaving you with poor vision. You can tell once you start to see streaks, smears or hear a squeak.
    • When Should I Change my Battery?: It's generally thought that you should change your car battery around every three years. Here in cold climates around Plymouth, MA and New Bedford, however, the weather can affect the charge of your battery and cause it to die faster. We suggest checking the charge every winter and driving long distances to charge the battery back up to get the most out of it.
    • Why Should I Have My Vehicle Regularly Inspected?: Even if there isn't anything noticeably wrong with your vehicle, it's a good idea to bring it in for a routine parts and fluid inspection to ensure that everything is performing the way it should be.
