Every car, truck, van, and SUV has unique needs for ongoing maintenance. These needs depend on the make, model, year, and mileage of the vehicle as well as driving habits and aftermarket equipment that may be installed. Granted, the most basic, important maintenance you can provide for your vehicle is regularly scheduled oil changes.

While you may only need to bring your vehicle in for oil changes every 3,000 miles (according to manufacturer recommendations), there are other maintenance services for other engine systems that will inevitably be needed to keep your vehicle running smoothly.

Not Just Oil Changes

When you bring your vehicle to Thompson Automotive for an oil change, we don’t just do the bare minimum. As a value added service for all of our customers, we include with every oil change a complimentary tire rotation performed by a qualified automotive technician. In addition, we conduct a bumper-to-bumper inspection to determine if any other critical components may need attention. These components could include brakes, radiator or cooling parts, fuel system equipment, and steering or suspension components.

Other oil change providers just want you in and out of their bay as soon as possible. And, while we do conduct our oil changes efficiently, we also take the time to ensure that your vehicle is safely suited for the daily driving you expect out of it. Lastly, we make sure to use only the best lubricants, fluids, and replacement parts specifically recommended by the manufacturer of your vehicle. At Thompson Automotive, you can trust your ongoing automotive maintenance to ASE-certified mechanics who will promptly and professionally care for your vehicle as if it were their own.

Plan for the Road Ahead

Having a plan for the routine maintenance of your vehicle is the most economical, forward-thinking step you can take to ensure that you get the most out of the investment you’ve made in your vehicle. Part of this plan is knowing when basic services like oil changes and fluid flushes may be needed. To help with this, Thompson Automotive can provide you with a schedule of manufacturer-recommended service intervals, so you know exactly when to set your next appointment with our technicians. Need us to work with your hectic schedule? No problem! Just tell us what times work best for you, and we’ll do all we can to accommodate you.

Whether the vehicle you drive has 5,000, or 250,000 miles on it, we are your partners for long-term reliability and vehicle safety. All of our parts and labor come with a 3-year/36,000-mile warranty, and we never recommend service or repair unless they are necessary.
