What are A-1 Auto Repair service recommendations based on?
Most service recommendations are based on your owner’s manual.

Do I have to go to my vehicle dealer to maintain my warranty?
Absolutely not! Sometimes customers think they must replace filters or other parts with the dealer brand in order to keep their warranty. This is not true. The Magnuson Moss Warranty Act, a federal law, states that a manufacturer may not require the use of any brand of filter or other article unless the manufacturer provides the item free of charge under the terms of the warranty. Manufacturers are now using stronger language when referring to vehicle maintenance, but the term “Requirement” generally refers to regular maintenance as designated by the owner’s manual. However, who does the service is NOT a determining factor.

When A-1 Auto Repair performs services, we follow the exact procedures set forth by the manufacturer’s recommendations. It is important to note that manufacturers warranties vary. Consult your manufacturer to confirm.

How do I decide whether to use conventional, semi-synthetic or synthetic oil?
Consult your owner’s manual. A-1 Auto Repair matches the specification listed in your owner’s manual to those listed for the motor oil. The name or type of motor oil (conventional, synthetic, or synthetic blend) is incidental to meeting this specification.

How much is an oil change at A-1 Auto Repair and what does it involve?
The cost of an oil change varies depending upon your vehicle type and the number of quarts of oil needed. Typical cost is $37.99 and includes our famous 21 point inspection.

Why do I need to change oil anyway?
Dust, metal shavings and antifreeze contaminate motor oil. As these contaminants are mixed into the oil, sludge is formed. Sludge sticks to parts of the engine causing it to perform less efficiently. Eventually, this sludge can cause engine failure. Automobile manufacturers generally recommend changing oil every 3,000 miles or 3 months, whichever comes first. A-1 Auto Repair uses CASTROL brand motor oil and recommends Castrol Syn Blend, a leading synthetic oil for our customers.

Do I really need synthetic motor oil?
Synthetic motor oil is designed and engineered to be tougher than conventional motor oils in extreme heat, extreme cold, frequent stop and go driving, towing heavy loads, and high speed. Most truck and SUV manufacturers recommend the use of synthetic motor oils in today’s vehicles. The powerful additives in synthetic oils neutralize corrosive particles from today’s engines and prevent the formation of sludge.
