March 4, 2016

All of us in Walled Lake know we have to get the oil changed in our vehicles periodically. That's just part of good vehicle care.

That's why they sometimes let you know that your air filter needs to be changed before releasing your vehicle.

Don't just chock this up to trying to sell you something else. Walled Lake area drivers really do need to change their air filter when it gets dirty.
