Preventative Maintenance

Auto Service at Killian AutomotiveTo prevent long term and costly problems with your vehicle, it is necessary to keep up with its preventative maintenance schedule. Every make and model is different and beliefs such as “You have to change your oil every 3,000 miles” may not apply to your car.
