So what exactly is a “tune-up”? A “tune-up” was a term coined back in the day referring to maintaining your vehicle. If the engine was running a little rough, you might need a tune-up. So is it really relevant today? Servicing your vehicle, yes… But the term, no. A tune-up for modern vehicles is based on your vehicle’s maintenance requirements. Truthfully, making sure your vehicle is properly maintained is the single most important piece of advice we can give. All vehicle manufacturers publish your vehicles required maintenance schedule and this is what we follow when doing a tune-up on your vehicle.
