Contrary to popular belief, even old cars can still run great. At Hopkins Acura, we’re one of the few dealerships in Redwood City, CA that go the extra mile when it comes to service, and our experts know a thing or two about engine performance, too. No matter the mileage, we can help you keep your engine running just as smoothly as the day you bought it.

The first day you purchase your car you’ll likely enjoy some seriously next-level performance. From the zippy engine to the clear and responsive transmission, many drivers can be misled into thinking that a new engine will steadily perform worse and worse as the years wear on. In truth, inevitable engine wear doesn’t have to be the norm.

There are many ways that you can ensure the long-term performance of your Acura’s engine. One such method is regular oil changes. A lubricant, designed to keep all of the components of your engine running smoothly, motor oil is considered the lifeblood of your engine. While every engine is different, auto experts suggest that you receive an oil change once every 5,000 miles or so to ensure that your motor oil is completely free of any gunk.

Another thing that can prolong the life of your engine is to stay on top of your recommended maintenance checks. Every vehicle should receive thorough service inspections from technical experts during mileage milestones. These mileage milestones include 50,000 miles, 60,000 miles, 75,000 miles, and 100,000 miles. When you take your car in during these milestones, a service expert will evaluate your vehicle for any potential mechanical issues and fix them if necessary.

Regardless what your odometer says, you can enjoy a well-performing engine long after you’ve driven it off the lot. At Hopkins Acura, our Acura service team can ensure that everything is running at 110% so that you can enjoy the best long-term engine performance possible.
