Changing your oil regularly helps your car’s engine operate properly by lubricating its components. Without proper oil, engine parts rub together, causing damage. Oil also helps regulate your engine’s temperature so your vehicle doesn’t overheat. Fresh oil can help clean debris and sludge from your engine, keeping it free from buildup. Oil changes can also help make your car more environmentally friendly and fuel-efficient, and they help your engine last longer.
Each vehicle has unique needs for oil changes. Most cars require oil changes every 5,000 to 7,000 miles, but intervals can vary based on your car’s age, its make and model, and the conditions in which you drive. Some older cars might need fresh oil as often as every 3,000 miles, and with full-synthetic oil, you can drive as many as 15,000 miles between oil changes. You can check your owner’s manual for information about how often you should change your car’s oil and what type of oil your car needs.
We’re happy to change your vehicle’s oil at our Car Care Center at Hyundai of Trenton. Our technicians will also perform a complimentary Multi-Point Inspection on your car to ensure it’s operating at peak condition. For a quick, convenient oil change service, contact us today.
It’s important to replace your tires every six to 10 years. Replacing your tires protects you on the road, helps your car operate better in adverse weather, enhances your vehicle’s performance, and conserves fuel. It might be time for new tires if:
- Your tires’ tread depth is below 2/32 of an inch.
- You’ve driven on your tires for over six years.
- Your tire was punctured by something sharp.
- Your tire is otherwise damaged.

New Hyundai Batteries
Your car’s battery powers everything from the engine to the stereo. To keep your vehicle in top-performing condition, it’s vital to keep your battery charged, clean, and functional. You can extend your battery’s life by minimizing stop-and-start driving, turning off your battery after you turn off your engine, and scheduling frequent battery inspections to ensure yours is clean and properly connected.
Batteries work best when they’re used at least semi-regularly. If you don’t use your car often or are leaving on a long trip, make a plan to make sure someone drives the car once every few weeks. Leaving your battery dormant for too long can shorten its life. If you notice your vehicle is slow to start or struggles to run in cold weather, it could be a sign you need a new battery. Most cars also include a dashboard light that indicates your battery’s health. If a battery light appears, it usually means you’re due for battery service.
At Hyundai of Trenton, we offer Multi-Point Inspections in which we test your battery to learn how healthy it is. We look for dangerous dirt, debris, and buildup, too. If your battery’s nearing the end of its life, we can help you replace it. Visit us today to check on your battery.
Proper braking is a crucial function of your car. Your brakes keep you safe from collisions, help you navigate traffic, and allow you to park. If your brakes aren’t working properly, we’re happy to help you at the Hyundai of Trenton Car Care Center to get your brakes back into optimal condition. Brake issues can escalate over time, so identifying brake problems early can save you time and money in the future. Here are some signs that your brakes need attention:
- An “ABS” dashboard light is lit on your dashboard.
- Your brake pedal shakes significantly.
- Your brake pedal is noticeably harder or easier to press.
- Your car makes an unfamiliar noise when you brake, like a high-pitched squeal, a click, or a rattle.
It might be helpful to visually check your brake fluid. If the color is dark brown, it’s probably time to replace it. Every 10,000 miles or so, it’s helpful to get your brakes checked. Our team is happy to examine your brakes and brake pads and repair any issues. Schedule an appointment to make sure your brakes work for you when it matters most.
