Spring is here. We can expect to see the world around us anew again, with the sight of budding trees and blooming flowers. However, we can also expect to see lots of yellow dust floating in the air we breathe. Not only do you breathe in pollen, but your car does too. Similar to heading to the doctor’s office for some allergy medicine, there are certain aspects of your vehicle that require a check up during this season. Your air filter is first on the list.

Winter is upon us, and we can’t wait for all that entails: holidays, snow, hot chocolate by the fire, and the list can go on and on. However, winter also entails driving in the snow. If you are new to Ann Arbor, you may be unprepared for the influx of snow and frost. When you drive in the snow, you must remain vigilant. State Street Auto Service is here to help. We have put together a list of tips for driving in the snow.
For over 30 years, we have been servicing hybrid and light diesel trucks in the winter months.
Do you drive a hybrid or light diesel automobile? If yes, that’s great! At State Street Auto Service, though we service all types of foreign and domestic vehicles, we specialize in hybrid and light diesel repairs.
Many hybrid owners and light diesel truck owners ask the State Street Auto Service team about how often they should change the oil in their vehicles. For many, they assume that changing the oil on their Prius or Dodge truck every 3,000 to 5,000 miles or 3 - 6 months is adequate. However, the frequency of oil change intervals for hybrid and light diesel vehicles mostly depends on what type of driving you do.
