Why should I schedule frequent service for my vehicle?

When you bring your vehicle in for maintenance, you ensure that all the important parts of your car are in good working order. Getting your Lincoln seen by certified technicians helps extend its lifespan, and it can protect any warranties that may be in place. Additionally, our technicians can detect any unknown issues that may affect your car's performance and safety. Catching these types of fixes early can help Buford drivers save money down the line!

How can I tell if my car needs service?

Each Lincoln model features indicator lights on the dashboard that will illuminate when it's time to bring your car in for a visit. For example, the Lincoln Nautilus dashboard can let you know that an oil change is due or that fluids should be topped off. Some services need to be completed after a certain amount of time or miles driven, such as tire rotations and alignments. You can also consult your owner's manual to see a specific maintenance schedule laid out by Lincoln.

How often should I get an oil change?

Most recent models, such as the Lincoln Navigator, are equipped with an Intelligent Oil-Life Monitor™. Your vehicle collects information about your driving habits and uses it to calculate oil consumption. You will receive a dashboard display notifying you when your oil is close to the end of its lifespan. Lincoln recommends this service annually and urges drivers not to exceed 10,000-miles before their next oil change. If you frequently drive in stop-and-go traffic in Johns Creek, you may need to perform this service sooner.

How often should I check my vehicle's fluid levels?

A good rule of thumb is to check the various fluid levels in your car once a month. This can often be done by cleaning and inserting the dipstick. As mentioned, your vehicle can also notify you when you need to check and refill engine fluids.

How often should I change my cabin air filter?

According to the Lincoln maintenance schedule of the most popular models, you should be replacing the cabin air filter in your vehicle every 20,000-miles. Doing this regularly ensures that the air inside your Lincoln Corsair is of the highest quality.

How often should I have my brakes checked?

All Milton area drivers should get their brake pads, shoes, rotors, drums, brake linings, hoses, and parking brake inspected every 10,000-miles.

Should I replace my car battery?

If your Lincoln has been experiencing any of the following issues, it might be time to replace your battery: dimming headlights, requiring a jump-start, slow start-time, or heavy corrosion. One of our certified technicians will determine whether you need a new battery or if another issue is causing these problems.

How often should I rotate my tires?

Lincoln suggests that drivers schedule a tire rotation for every 10,000-miles driven. A service technician should examine the tread depth of each tire to look for signs of uneven wearing.

When should I replace my tires?

If the tread on one or more of your tires has worn down, you will need to purchase replacements. If the grooves between the tire's markings are noticeably shallow, it is no longer effective at gripping the road's surface. This issue can compromise your vehicle's safety, so it's important to schedule an appointment as soon as you notice significant wear.
