Many people make resolutions to stay in shape for the New Year. Why not make a similar resolution for your car? Bring your Alfa Romeo vehicle to our Alfa Romeo service center for professional assessments and tune-ups.

Oil Change

The recommended oil change interval for both the Alfa Romeo Giulia and Alfa Romeo Stelvio is 10,000 miles or 12 months, whichever comes first.

Contrary to popular belief, modern vehicles don’t require an oil change every 3,000 miles. However, you may need an oil change more often if you subject your vehicle to severe driving conditions.

Belts and Hose Check

. Serpentine belts should be replaced every 70,000 miles, so be sure to keep an eye on all your belts and hoses. This includes a look at the drive belts for fraying

Your various hoses should also be checked for leaks and openings. This includes a look at the radiator, coolant, and overflow hose.

Windshield Inspection

Perform a quick inspection of your windshield for cracks. Even a small crack can gradually increase over time, putting your windshield at risk of completely splitting.

If you notice a small crack, bring it to the mechanic’s attention even if you think it’s negligible.

Light Inspection

More daylight hours won’t appear until spring. Prioritize your lights by inspecting the headlights and full beam light. Have a friend inspect your taillights and brake lights.

If the lights are dimmer than normal, the problem may lie in either the bulb or light cover. With the latter, the surface may be clouded and require a restoration. Schedule a maintenance session at Alfa Romeo of St. Petersburg. Make this the year to give your car the attention it deserves.
