Tire Rotation in Albany, CA

Tire rotation is one of those maintenance items that are easy to overlook, yet can cost quite a bit of money if not done on regular basis. At Adams Autoworx in Albany we recommend tire rotation every 6 months. So in many cases, you can combine it with an oil change, and get both done during a single visit. Tire rotation evens our tire wear – that’s its claim to fame. Tires wear unevenly, so rotating tires evens out the wear. It also improves ride quality and vehicle handling, but extending tire life is a huge benefit. Since tire rotation makes tires last longer, your vehicle can go longer without needing new tires. With inflation increasing prices of everything, including tires, being able to extend tire life is a clear benefit for your wallet. Another reason why we recommend regular tire rotation is the small print you likely missed when you purchased your new tires. What small print?!  Tire manufacturers require regular tire rotation in order to maintain tire milea ... read more

Prius Service in Albany, CA

Just a few days ago we wrote about Prius repairs, and it was a short blog post. Prius services are a subject that’s a bit more involved. Naturally the most frequent service will be Prius oil change. Toyota Prius vehicles are well-known for excessive oil consumption, so we not only recommend regular oil changes every 5,000 miles, but also  checking engine oil level every 1,000 miles or so. Another service will be brake pads replacement. Fortunately, on Prius vehicles that is an infrequent affair. While a typical non-hybrid vehicle will need new brake pads every 25,000 – 50,000 miles, it is not uncommon for Prius vehicles to go over 100,000 miles on the same set of brake pads. Thanks to regenerative braking, your Prius’ brake pads are used a lot less frequently than on a non-hybrid, gasoline powered vehicle.   A service that should be performed on a Prius every two years is brake fluid change. Brake fluid deteriorates over time, absorbs moisture from the air ... read more

Tesla Tire Rotation in Albany, CA

Tesla vehicles are models of simplicity, with a lot of maintenance typical of conventionally powered vehicles made unnecessary by design. But tire rotation remains one of the services that are a necessity. As a matter of fact, because Tesla, like all EVs, is a heavy vehicle, regular tire rotation is of great importance. Tesla recommends tire rotation every 6250 miles or if the tread depth difference is 2/32 inches or more. Naturally, if you drive very aggressively, more frequent tire rotations may be necessary. Accelerated tire wear is a fact of life for EVs, so we recommend regular tire rotations to extend tire life. While driving a Tesla means that oil changes are a thing of the past, it’s easy to forget about tire rotation. Conventionally powered vehicles get tires rotated during an oil change. Your Tesla will need a tire rotation appointment. The good news is that tire rotation can be performed while you wait, so call our Albany auto care facility to schedule a time to get ... read more
