Service FAQs: Here Are Some Common Service Questions We Hear at Vendetti Motors

If you take good care of your Buick SUV or your GMC vehicle, it will take care of you with long-term reliability. To help make sure that happens, at Vendetti Motors of Franklin, MA, we'll give your Buick or GMC model the kind of factory-authorized service that will keep it running the way you expect it to run: for a good, long time. But that doesn't mean you don't have a few questions. Here are some of the things we often get asked.

Why Should I Maintain My Vehicle Regularly?

Any machine has moving parts, and that means friction, which means wear. Even the best-engineered vehicles like Buick SUVs and GMC trucks can wear out sooner than necessary if those parts aren't lubricated and maintained properly. But if your vehicle gets regular service with genuine, factory-authorized parts, those parts will last much longer. The same goes for non-moving parts like your battery. Regular service helps keep everything in top condition, which means you're safer on the road as well.

How Often Should I Change the Oil in My Vehicle?

It used to be that every 3,000 miles was the recommended cycle for most cars. Today, thanks to advanced Buick and GMC engines as well as advanced lubrication, the recommended interval is every 7,500 to 10,000 miles. Just remember that dirty or insufficient oil is one of the most common causes of vehicle trouble, so keep oil as fresh as possible to keep your vehicle running properly around Cumberland RI and Mansfield MA.

Of course, it's also important to change other vital fluids when needed, like transmission fluid, brake fluid and power steering fluid. Whether you live in Milford or North Attleborough, MA, talk to our experienced service professionals at Vendetti Motors to find out the best fluid change intervals for your vehicle.

How Often Should I Have My Brakes Checked?

It's usually good to have your brakes checked every six months. That lets our team determine whether your brakes need new pads, rotors or other kinds of repair, or whether your braking system is good for another six months. With a safety item as vital as your brakes, it's good to allow our service specialists to stay on top of this for you.

How Do I Know if My Battery Is Still Good?

Car batteries can last up to four or five years, but your battery life can be shortened by extreme situations like cold weather or extra-high usage. That why it's important to have your battery checked about as often as you get an oil change. If you notice any specific electrical issues like a slow start, have it checked out by our team. We can tell you if it's a dying battery, a starter or alternator problem, or something else.

What are Other Reasons to Visit the Vendetti Motors Service Center?

Is your "Check Engine" light coming on? Has it been a while since the oil's been changed? Is your car struggling when you try to start it? Are you hearing a rattle? We've seen all those symptoms before, so whether you live in Franklin or nearby Norwood, MA, we can provide any service your Buick or GMC truck might need.

What's So Wrong with Saving Some Money on Aftermarket Parts?

When you're dealing with aftermarket parts, quality can be anybody's guess. While aftermarket parts may cost less initially, they can lead to much more expensive repairs down the road. After all, only genuine GM parts are designed to fit your vehicle perfectly. When a part "doesn't quite fit," that can cost you far more than you saved in the first place. That's why you should let us give your vehicle the genuine GM parts it was made to run with.
