Modern automobiles consist of over 30,000 parts. Some of these parts require maintenance and repairs regularly, while others may last the lifetime of the vehicle. Our Alfa Romeo service center in St. Petersburg, FL performs maintenance on all models.

Here are some of the most common issues we encounter.

Oil Change

Modern Alfa Romeo models can go from 7,500 to 10,000 miles between oil changes.

Even so, oil changes at our service center are quite commonplace because there are factors that cause your oil to congeal faster, including stop-and-go driving and constant short commutes on city streets.

Tire Rotations

Tire rotations are usually recommended every 5,000 to 7,000 miles. This is done to ensure even tire wear.

Tires don’t always wear down at an even rate, and uneven wear can have an effect on steering and traction. It can also lead to tire misalignment and imbalance. Both tire alignment and Alfa Romeo tire balancing are also common maintenance services.

Shock Absorber Replacement

Shock absorbers last about 50,000 miles. However, many drivers find themselves replacing this component much sooner.

Factors like driving over potholes or dips, or uneven tire wear, can stress the shock absorbers.

Starter Motor Replacement

The starter motor works in sync with the battery to power the engine. This motor consists of multiple components, including the solenoid and starter relay.

If any of these parts fail, it compromises the whole system. Though the starter motor typically lasts about 10 years, starting the ignition too often can cause premature wear.
