Whether you’re been referred to us by a friend or are already the happy owner of a Cactus Jack’s used car near Tucson, we’re happy to help you out with this list of auto maintenance tips for drivers throughout greater Phoenix:

  • Know your car maintenance schedule. – Most cars come with owner manuals that detail the recommended maintenance schedule for different parts and systems. Keep track of yours.
  • Check your fluids and filters regularly. – Get your oil changed every 3 months/3,000 miles. Consider using special oil formulas for high mileage vehicles, and have your other fluids and filters checked when you bring your car in.
  • Get your brakes checked. – Avoid expensive brake repairs by getting your pads replaced on time so you don’t ruin your rotors.
  • Don’t ignore maintenance lights. – If your check engine, oil change, or other warning light comes on, bring the car in for service right away.
