What Types of Service Does Suburban Ford of Waterford Offer?

  • Oil Change: Oil changes are some of the most common services for any car. The service drains out old oil that's gotten dirty and lost its effectiveness in lubricating and cooling your engine. Then, technicians replace it with fresh, clean oil that's ready to keep your engine running healthy. Oil changes are recommended every few thousand miles, so you can count on coming for a few appointments a year.
  • Brake Service: Brake components naturally wear down with regular use. You can expect to need new brake pads every couple of years, depending on your driving habits. It's important to address brake repairs in a timely manner, since they're among the most important for the safety of you and other drivers on the road.
  • Wheel Alignment: Have you noticed a shimmy in your car's steering, diminished ride comfort, or worse gas mileage? These are telltale signs that your car's wheels are out of alignment. The technicians at Suburban Ford of Waterford have the tools to tell if a wheel alignment is necessary and the equipment to correct the problem in a timely manner.
  • Battery Replacement: Car batteries serve as energy source for all sorts of vehicle functions, from running the radio to engine ignition itself. Over time, batteries can lose their effectiveness. Fortunately, auto technicians can easily test battery levels and let you know when it's time to install a new one.
