How to Extend the Life of Your Car in Sarasota, FL

Your car is an integral part of your everyday routine — that’s why prolonging its life is crucial. The service team at Gettel Genesis of Sarasota efficiently performs service and maintenance repairs so that you can get your car in pristine shape in no time. Since we have a team of experienced technicians, they’ll know exactly what your Genesis needs in order to get you back on the road.

Staying on top of the required maintenance for your Genesis is key to extending the life of your model. We’re going to share with you the key aspects of your vehicle that you should consistently monitor.

Wash & wax your vehicle regularly.

Harsh weather can negatively affect the exterior of your vehicle. Stay on top of it by frequently washing and waxing your Genesis. Doing this simple task will help exterior elements of your car last longer.

Don’t forget the interior.

The interior of your Genesis matters just as much as the exterior. The weather doesn’t affect the wear and tear of the interior, but everyday use can create a build-up of stains, crumbs, dirt, etc. Make sure to deep clean stains and vacuum any debris that may be laying around. No matter if your seats are leather, fabric or upholstery, utilize the correct cleaner for whichever material your model has.

Keep an eye on your tires.

Good tires help ensure your vehicle is reliable on the road. Frequently keep tabs on your tire pressure and tread. Reference your owner’s manual for the exact amount of air that should be in your tires. If you fill them up and still notice a dramatic decline in air pressure, don’t hesitate to contact Gettel Genesis of Sarasota and we’ll help solve the problem. If you notice that your tires don’t have a good amount of tread, you simply need to get a new set. Additionally, make sure you’re frequently rotating your tires to prevent them from wearing unevenly.

Keep up with oil changes.

Oil changes help refresh one of the most important aspects of your Genesis. Never put off an oil change as it could have a negative effect on the life span of your vehicle. Gettel Genesis of Sarasota simplifies this service by offering a three-year valet subscription . Through this, you can easily schedule a service and arrange a time for your vehicle to be picked up wherever and whenever you choose. We understand that nobody has time to waste in a waiting room, so this subscription is a hassle-free way to stay on top of your car’s maintenance.

Change the filters.

Car filters help many zones of your vehicle stay healthy and efficient. Make sure to double check your owner’s manual to see exactly when each filter should be replaced (this includes oil, fuel, transmission and air filters).

Repair damage to your windshield as soon as possible.

Sometimes we can’t prevent flying debris from cracking our windshield. But you should never ignore any damage as it can get worse over time. Instead of eventually replacing your entire windshield, stay on top of it by getting the small chips repaired as soon as possible. Contact our dealership and we’ll seamlessly transform your windshield to look brand new again.

Use genuine OEM parts.

Genuine Genesis parts help your model perform at its absolute best. We don’t recommend settling for generic brand parts. OEM parts are specifically designed to fit and work best with your Genesis model. Contact our team of technicians today to get the parts you need.

Make sure fluids are at the correct level.

Genesis models depend on a variety of fluids in order to run smoothly. Make sure you refer to your owner’s manual to see how often your car’s fluids should be checked. If you’re unsure or run into any problems, contact Gettel Genesis of Sarasota and we’ll guide you every step of the way.

These are just a few steps to follow in order to keep your vehicle healthy and on the road for a long time.
