Many people make New Year’s resolutions to eat healthier or
work out more often. However, not very many
people think of their vehicles when ringing in the new year. Your vehicle is crucial in your day-to-day
life. So if you fell short in taking
care of your vehicle in 2016, this is the year to make up for it with Safford
of Springfield’s new service
specials!

Extend the life of your tires

When was the last time you had your tires rotated or
realigned? An oil change or service appointment is the perfect time to align
and rotate your tires.

Tire rotation:

Rotating your tires helps ensure your tires wear evenly, extending their lifespan and keeping you safe.  Also, during a tire rotation, a service
technician will check for correct tire pressures, and inspect your tires for
unusual wear or damage.

Wheel alignment:

As far as wheel alignments go, we recommend having the
service done once a year or every 12,000 miles. However, there are some
instances when you may have your alignment checked more often, like if you feel
the vehicle continuously pulling off to one side or if you hit a curb or large
pot hole. These are both indicators that you may need to get your wheel
alignment checked.
