Regular Maintenance Checklist

evoixsd/Flickr Creative Commons

All new vehicles have regularly scheduled maintenance schedules from the manufacturer; and to keep you vehicle in excellent condition, you should adhere to these schedules. Even if certain things are not listed in your owner’s manual, you should have them checked in addition to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Sansone Jr.’s 66 Automall will check these things when you bring your vehicle in for service.

Oil Change

It is highly important that you change the oil and filter in your vehicle when recommended. The manufacturer will list a recommended time in mileage or number of months; or it will recommend changing the oil based on the oil life system built into your vehicle. If you don’t change the oil you could do extensive damage to your vehicle’s engine.

Even if the manufacturer doesn’t recommend changing the oil every three months or 3,000 miles, it is a good idea to check the oil at least that soon – if not sooner. If your vehicle develops an oil leak or starts to burn oil you may not realize it until it’s too late unless you check your oil frequently.

Tire Rotation

One of the things people rarely think about unless they get a flat is their vehicle’s tires. You should check the air pressure at least once per month and you should have the tires rotated at least twice per year. Checking the tires will keep you apprised of the tread wear and it will notify you if you have low air pressure. Some vehicles now come with a tire pressure monitoring system, but that doesn’t mean that you should not manually check tires.

If a tire wears unevenly, that could signify that it’s time for an alignment or show that you have another problem. Depending on the issue, the sooner you get it repaired, the better, especially if the problem is in the suspension or steering and you don’t notice it when you are driving.


Always check your filters every three months, especially if you frequently drive on gravel roads. While the fuel filter can be checked every six months, your vehicle’s air filter and air filtration filters should be checked more frequently. If your vehicle cannot breathe properly, your gas mileage will decrease – and if the filter is really clogged, it could significantly cost you at the pump.

Get Pre-Approved in Seconds at 66 Automall!

When you want to lease or buy a new vehicle, you have to go through the whole hassle of getting approved. You can save time by getting preapproved in seconds at Sansone Jr.’s 66 Automall. Instead of waiting at the dealership, visit our web site’s preapproval page to get preapproved – and you’ll also find out how much vehicle you can afford.

Getting Qualified

If you pick out a vehicle that has higher payments than your debt to income ratio can support, you’ll have to pick out another vehicle to test drive. This takes time. Instead, when you get preapproved, you will know the approximate payment that your debt to income ratio will support, and you can pick out two or three vehicles to test drive that are in the proper price range.

What is Debt to Income?

Your debt to income ratio is the percentage of debt you have to the amount of income you have. The closer to the cutoff percentage, the less vehicle you will be able to qualify for. If you have a low percentage, you can get a pretty steep monthly payment.

Other Options

In most cases, lease payments are less than purchase finance payments. If you must have a certain vehicle, your debt to income may support a lease payment on that vehicle even if it won’t support a purchase finance payment.

After Getting Preapproved

After you get preapproved, print out your certificate and bring it into Sansone Jr.’s 66 Automall. We will be able to get right to the nitty gritty of test driving and choosing a vehicle and can skip over getting your qualified for your debt to income and your credit score. Our salespeople will be able to tell you whether you’ll qualify for the vehicle you are interested in by looking at your preapproval certificate.

Choosing a Vehicle Online

If you prefer to shop first, choose the vehicle you are interested in. Click the “Get Preapproved” button near on that vehicle’s page. You’ll find out immediately if you will be approved for that vehicle. Print out the certificate and bring it in to test drive the vehicle and to finish the process, whether for financing or leasing.

Let Us Install Your Car Alarm

Kloeffen/Flickr Creative Commons

Instead of taking a chance on installing your own car alarm, let us at 66MVP install it for you. You will be sure to get a quality product that is installed properly. The alarm will be professionally wired so that there is no chance of an electrical fire from faulty wiring and no chance that it doesn’t work properly due to faulty wiring.

Discourage Vehicle Theft and Content Theft

Not only does a car alarm discourage people from stealing your vehicle, but it also discourages them from stealing any valuables that you might have forgotten inside the vehicle. While it’s not a good idea to leave anything in plain sight, sometimes you do forget valuables in the vehicle. Other times, you have no choice, but may store them in the truck. However, thieves know that there may be valuables in the trunk or under the seats and may try to break in even if they don’t see anything.

How a Car Alarm Works

You already know that a car alarm is pretty loud when it is triggered. It may also flash the vehicle’s lights to catch your – or a policeman’s – attention. Certain car alarms will also page you and interrupt your vehicle’s electrical circuits so the thief cannot drive off in your vehicle. If you get a cheap alarm, it will only make noise. If you’re a heavy sleeper or at a loud venue, you may not hear it. Or, if you are some distance away from your vehicle, you definitely won’t hear it. It’s better to have an alarm with a pager and one that renders the vehicle “dead.”

Simple vs. Sophisticated

You’re better off with a more sophisticated alarm system. A simple alarm system senses vibration or may sense voltage changes to trigger the alarm. This type often has false alarms. A sophisticated system is wired into your vehicle’s electronics and features several inputs for unauthorized door and trunk access and also detects if the ignition is being turned on.

Stop by 66MVP today to discuss your vehicle alarm requirements and we will find the best alarm system for your vehicle; and we will professionally install it for you. We have several alarms from which to choose from, so you’re sure to find something reliable in your price range.
