Do cars need tune-ups anymore?

If your car was built in the past 15-20 years, a tune-up may not be necessary.

These were typically done to replace wear items underneath the hood of a vehicle that a lot of modern engines don’t use anymore. Additionally, a lot of these parts are now computer operated and have a longer lifespan than they did before.

While standard tune-ups are a thing of the past, inspections are still necessary for your car. Visit our inspections page to learn more about what goes into each vehicle check we do.
