Should You Get a 30,000 Mile Service for Your New Vehicle?

Should You Get a 30,000 Mile Service for Your New Vehicle?

Why have your vehicle maintained at 30,000 miles if it is still running? Is it really necessary? The simple answer would be yes, but there is more to it, let us take a look at why exactly it is important to your vehicle to have a 30,000 mile service done on it. If you think that maintenance service can be skipped, read this article, and you will see precisely why it shouldn’t be.

Why don’t we start off with the fact that some warranties may depend on whether or not you had factory scheduled maintenance performed on the car. If you did not have it done, it may void your warranty, and you most certainly don’t want that happening to a vehicle you have purchased as brand new.

Now, as far as the vehicle itself goes, look at the 30,000 mile service as an investment. An investment that guarantees you have a smoothly running vehicle for a longer period of time. And in addition, it can save you money in the long run since a mechanic can notice and identify any potential problems down the road, which can save you hundreds (and in fact, thousands) of dollars for repairs in the future.

Typically, a 30,000 mile service may include inspections and replacements of various components of your vehicle, as well as rotation of the tires. Usually, it starts with an inspection of the car’s major systems for any problems or signs of problems. And then, again usually, it is followed by any of the following: oil change, checking fluids and topping them off or replacing them, replacement of air filters, brake service, tire rotation. Of course, the item of services could be different depending on what your vehicle’s condition is. If you want to know exactly what it includes, you can call an auto repair center, or better yet, visit one and they would be happy to explain it to you. Make sure to choose an auto repair shop that will be honest with you about the work that needs to be done on the vehicle, and will not overcharge you for services not needed.

Through regular maintenance, you can keep your vehicle running smoothly and in good condition. However, again I must stress on the matter that it is of the highest importance to go to a trusted auto repair center for the 30,000 mile service of your vehicle.

We all know that child car safety is quite simple, provided that you follow a couple of simple steps. The first thing you need to do is to fit child restraints correctly and make sure you always buckle your kids into them correctly.

The rise of the automotive industry in Kansas City

The rise of the automotive industry in Kansas City
Kansas City is officially the nation's second-largest auto hub. City’s long history of auto production dates back to 1913 when Henry Ford made a decision to choose this region to be the first one outside of Detroit for auto production. The most recent expansion of Ford Motor Co. in this particular area was in 2011. At that time, the company announced a $1.2 billion investment that was meant to expand and retool Kansas City Assembly Plant, which is located in Claycomo. This plant is responsible for manufacturing the Transit and the F-150 full-size van.

Ford has a strong and steady relationship with area school districts which are part of the company’s Next Generation Learning initiative. Launched in 2006, that initiative provides mentoring, technical support, coaching, and financial support to 20 communities around the country.

Kansas City Assembly Plant uses interesting and innovative supply chain structure called Automotive Alle…
