How often do I need to change the oil in my car or truck?
Purchasing a vehicle is often one of the largest investments you make in your lifetime, next to your home, so it’s important to ensure your vehicle lasts as long as possible. One of the easiest, most affordable, and most important things you can do to keep your vehicle running and reliable is to keep up with regular oil changes.
The majority of cars, trucks, and SUVs should have oil changed and oil filters replaced every 3,000 to 6,000 miles, or every six months—whichever comes first. You may be able to go longer between oil changes with synthetic oil.
At Driver’s Edge Complete Tire & Auto Service, we treat every oil change as an important area of routine maintenance. During your routine oil change, our experienced technicians also check other areas of your vehicle to keep you informed of anything that may not be in good condition.
By staying on top of recommended repairs, you can ensure your vehicle is not only safe and reliable, but it can also save you money in the long run. Stop by a Driver’s Edge location for your next oil change. Also be sure to check our coupons page for savings on conventional and synthetic oil and filter changes.

AC inspections and car AC repair are available at all of our Driver’s Edge locations throughout Texas.
Do you offer factory-scheduled maintenance services?
Yes! At Driver’s Edge, we offer 30/60/90K service checkups, which help to address maintenance and inspection items applicable to the mileage on your vehicle.

Although most vehicle manufacturers will recommend maintenance schedules for each mileage interval, the 30,000-mile interval is typically seen as the most common and the most important.

How can I tell if I need new brakes?
If you hear a squeaking, squealing, or grinding noise, or feel rubbing or pulsating while stepping on the brake pedal, these are all common warning signs that it’s time for brake repair or brake pad replacement.
Below are some of the common signs of brake repair:
- Poor braking performance
- Squeaking, squealing, or grinding noises
- Pulsation during braking
- Clicking noises when braking
- ABS light for antilock brakes is on
- Loss of brake pedal
- Loss of power assist
In some cases, brake repairs might simply involve replacing brake pads, shoes, and rotors, which is an important part of routine vehicle maintenance that can help prevent brake failure.
Serious mechanical issues are more likely to lead to brake failure. The most common reason is the loss of fluid pressure. Your brakes require hydraulic pressure for them to work properly, so iif there is a leak in your brake line or system, your brakes could fail.
Additionally, a buildup of rust and corrosion, oil, grease, hot spots, thin brake pads, can cause problems with your brakes.
If you think there may be problems with your brakes or if it has been some time since you last had your brakes inspected, Driver’s Edge offers full brake repair services for all cars, trucks, and SUVs.
Do I have to have my car serviced by the dealer to protect my warranty?
No, you do not have to bring your car to the dealership for regular maintenance in order to keep your warranty valid. You have the legal right to have your vehicle serviced or repaired by any auto repair company. A dealership cannot deny warranty coverage if repairs or maintenance are performed by an auto repair shop.
At Driver’s Edge, our team of factory-trained, ASE-Certified technicians provides the highest level of service and quality that meets or exceeds the service of any dealership. We can help you with everything your vehicle needs to remain safe, reliable, and running well.
What is preventative maintenance?

What should I do when my “check engine” light is on?
Don’t panic! Although it might be alarming to see your “Check Engine” light on or blinking, this doesn’t necessarily mean it is an immediate emergency. It could mean that there is a minor issue, such as a faulty oxygen sensor, or something more serious, such as an engine misfire or overheating. Regardless, you should never ignore your “Check Engine” light.
At Driver’s Edge, we can quickly determine the reason why a dashboard warning light is illuminated. We do this by running a diagnostics test on your vehicle’s computer.
Schedule an appointment or stop by any of our Driver’s Edge locations to have your warning light diagnosed and resolved as quickly as possible.
How often should I get a tune-up?
This depends on the age and mileage of your vehicle. Today’s newer vehicles are designed with internal computer systems, which should be serviced according to the manufacturer’s recommendations. However, older vehicles with high mileage may require different tune-up schedules.
At Driver’s Edge, we offer maintenance service packages at 30,000, 60,000, and 90,000 miles. Of course, if you notice any issues in between preventative maintenance service, or if your “Check Engine” light appears, get in touch with Driver’s Edge for an initial estimate or to book an appointment.
How can I tell if it’s time for new tires?
The most common signs of tire damage and wear include:
- Cracks in the sidewalls
- Embedded objects
- Tread wear
- Bulges, blisters, and other weak spots
New tires can be a significant expense, so you want to ensure you get the most mileage from them. Be sure that your tires are always properly inflated and check your vehicle’s owner’s manual for the manufacturer’s recommended inflation pressure. Tires that are worn or under-inflated can reduce your gas mileage!
If you see any of the above signs of wear or damage or notice more vibration than normal while driving, be sure to schedule an appointment at our tire shop. Driver’s Edge offers various tire services, including tire installation. Book your appointment today.
Where is the best place to go for oil changes?
You might feel inclined to bring your car to the auto repair shop that is closest to you, or to the shop that offers the lowest prices. Although an oil change is a simple and basic vehicle maintenance service, it’s important to choose the right auto repair shop. In many cases, cheaper oil changes may mean that you are paying for a lower-quality oil product, or the shop may not take the time to do a vehicle health check.
Bring your vehicle to an auto repair shop you can trust. Contact Driver’s Edge today to learn more about our oil change services and for an initial estimate.
