Importance of Oil Changes - Lee's Summit, MO


It's one of the most important things you should regularly do for your car, and yet, many drivers seem to either forget or simply not care about it: changing your oil.

If you want your car to perform optimally, safely, and for as long as possible to get your money's worth, it is absolutely essential that you regularly change your oil and do not neglect this vital aspect of your car.

Engine oil does a lot for your car, one job of which is simply lubricating the engine and keeping the engine's components working smoothly. Secondly, the oil draws heat away from your engine, which could overheat without quality oil. Lastly, it helps to prevent carbon and various varnishes from accumulating in your engine, which can cause long-term engine damage and decrease your vehicle's fuel efficiency.

If you don't regularly change your oil, buildup will quickly form in the cooler parts of the engine, leading to carbon deposits or flat-out sludge in the old oil. At the minimum, you'd have to clean your engine. At the maximum, you'd have to replace it entirely. Even worse, if freshly changed oil isn't available to do its job, you car could malfunction in a way that could cause a serious accident or damage, putting not just your wallet but also your life in danger.

With this in mind, check out your owner's manual and figure out what kind of oil your car needs. Learn how frequently to change it, memorize it, and don't forget it. Keep a written log, if that will help you.

Here at Lee's Summit Honda, we provide Honda oil changes in Lee's Summit, MO during our Service Department operating hours. You don't have to purchase a car from our dealership in order to get it serviced here. We offer the recommended transmission oil change services to any new and current customer in the Lee's Summit, MO area.

Types of Tires

The kind of tire equipped on your car will have a major impact on the way it handles. There are many kinds out there, so choosing the right one can make all the difference between a good driving experience and a bad one. Below, we'll look at the most common types of tires and why they might be right for you.

All-Season Tires

All-season tires are the jack of all trades and master of none. They come standard on almost all modern vehicles and are designed to provide good grip in both dry and inclement weather. They won't give you the best performance in any condition, but performance that's at least good enough not to need another set of tires for regular driving.

Snow/Winter Tires

These tires feature large grooves that help them find grip through snow where other tires would lose traction. They are also made of a softer rubber that performs better in the cold but wears out faster in warmer weather. When the roads are covered in snow, ice, or even water, winter tires provide the best cornering and braking performance.

Off-Road Tires

Designed with large lugs and deep voids, these tires can bite through soft, wet terrain better than any other, making them perfect for trudging through mud and dirt. They are a must-have when heading for adventure at your local off-roading park.

Performance Tires

Performance tires are slicker than regular tires, with fewer and shallower grooves, ensuring they make maximum contact with the road for extra grip. On smooth roads during sunny days, performance tires' traction offer superior acceleration, stopping, and cornering power. However, they also wear out quite fast compared to regular tires, so it's best to save them purely for track days.
