Many of our customers enjoy a long-standing relationship with AAA, and that’s a good thing. However, we can all agree that a pinch of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and that AAA should in most cases be an emergency solution. If you stay current on your car maintenance, your calls to AAA should be few. For example, changing your oil every 3,000-5,000 miles keeps your engine running like the finely-tuned machine that it is. Whether you’re driving one of our pre-owned luxury cars or used SUVs near Hanford, CA, every gasoline engine thrives on one substance: oil. This cherished black liquid keeps your engine’s many parts well lubricated, minimizing any friction that occurs from the parts rubbing together as they often do. On the flip side, going too long between oil changes can cause your engine to overheat, and/or get clogged with old, gummy oil residue.

Rotating your tires is another simple maintenance step that improves your vehicle’s safety, performance, and efficiency. We recommend a tire rotation every 6,000–8,000 miles, depending on how many miles you drive per week, the type of tires you have, and the type of roads you typically travel on. Rotating your tires ensures that they wear evenly, prolonging their lifespan and helping your car stay safe and fuel-efficient.
