Cars die. It happens. As much as we might want our beloved vehicles to last a lifetime, that rarely ever happens. A car that is on the road for twenty years is an anomaly for most brands but some, like Toyota, reach milestones like this on a regular basis. Own a Toyota? How do you make sure that your car has every chance to live as long as possible? Well that means monitoring and maintaining many different components at different milestones.

A lot of steps can be taken at home on a monthly basis to ensure your Toyota’s longevity. These steps can include looking after the tire pressure, the oil and coolant levels, and your mirrors and lights. Other parts of this checklist can include more items as the miles add up. It’s often difficult to keep track of all of the items on a maintenance checklist as you drive a car on a daily basis. Before you know it, that car that seemed brand new a few years ago is hitting the 100,000 mile mark. What happens now? What needs to be looked at? Who should look at it? The easy answer is that almost everything should be looked at by a Toyota service center, but finding one that you trust and is affordable can be a hassle. Colorado Toyota mechanics are abundant, but which one is right for you and your vehicle?

Ensuring your mechanic specializes in maintenance and repair of your vehicle brand is an important variable to consider. Some mechanics will work on any kind of car, which can be helpful for the more obscure and ancient vehicles out there, but a top brand like Toyota means that there are seemingly countless places to take your ride in for maintenance. So what makes a Toyota service center like New Way Auto Solutions exceptional? Besides their experience working on this specific brand of vehicle – they provide top level customer service and employ the most knowledgeable mechanics in Colorado. Whether the problem involves your engine, shocks, struts, suspension, cooling system, drive shafts, timing belt, hoses, steering wheel, or simply a general 100k mile inspection – all of New Way Auto Solutions work is guaranteed. That means peace of mind on the road.

So what exactly do our mechanics look at in an older car? Typically as your vehicle ages we recommend looking at specific parts of the car as it hits certain mile markers. But let’s say these milestones have already gone by the wayside. Does that mean that checking everything is important? Looking at the problematic parts individually only works so well. Checking just the U-joints at 80,000 miles could mean that an issue with the brakes or alignment goes unnoticed and cause a critical issue at the 81,000 mile mark. That’s why consulting with a car repair shop like New Way Auto Solutions is important to maintaining your aging vehicle. Our mechanics will address any urgent or foreseeable issues with your vehicle and get you back on the road with the peace of mind that you won’t break down. The lifecycle of all vehicles eventually comes to an end, but with regular maintenance from a reliable mechanic your high mileage car can give you many more miles of reliable transportation.
