With our vehicles, it's easy to focus on the larger parts that affect how it operates. But, there are smaller areas that are also important in keeping your vehicle in good shape. For instance, the belts and hoses need to be routinely inspected and change. Here are the reasons why.

Belts
As the belts in your vehicle get older, the material gets harder and has an increased chance to break. When this happens, there is a chance your vehicle can shut off and no longer run.

Hoses
?Hoses have the responsibility of carrying fluids that can be extremely hot. A breakdown within a hose can leak needed fluids and overheat the engine. Or, there can be a failure in the electrical charging system.

To prevent these problems, check the manufacturer’s maintenance timeline to understand how often your belts and hoses should be checked. Our dealership can inspect the conditions of your belts and hoses for any signs of wear. Schedule an appointment with us today.
