Q: How often should I change my oil?
A: Every driver knows that age old adage about changing the oil in your vehicle every 6 months or 5,000 miles. However, the truth is a little more complicated than that. In order to find the answer that you are looking for, the best place to look is inside the owner's manual of your vehicle, where it should tell you when your vehicle needs its oil changed. 
Q: When should I have my tires balanced and my tire alignment checked?
A: It's a good habit to have your tires rotated and balanced on a routine basis, say every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. However, any time that you notice your vehicle driving off-balance, have your alignment checked out as soon as you can. While it might not seem like a huge problem at the moment, an off-balance vehicle can quickly lead to some serious problems for you on the road. 
Q: When should I replace my vehicle's windshield wipers?
