Mountain Vehicles Require Driveline Maintenance

Driveline service essential for mountain vehicles!

Driveline inspection and maintenance is an essential part of keeping your Truckee FWD car, truck, SUV or sprinter van, moving forward and your mountain lifestyle on track.

Simply put, the driveline connects your transmission to the wheels, transforming the power from your engine into the rotation of the wheels.

When should I do driveline maintenance? 

Mountain vehicles drive in 4WD, negotiated steep mountain roads and often carry more weight with equipment, passengers or towing trailers. A mountain vehicle is taxed more than vehicles driven off the mountain. To avoid expensive damage don’t ignore the importance of this service. At Quality Automotive Servicing we follow the “severe driving” recommendations from the manufacturer and suggest this service at Major Mileage Service interval, generally 30,000 to 60,0000. 

Avoid the risk of an accident!  

Problems that can result from ignoring this service include a dangerous accident as you loose control of your vehicle. Ignoring this service puts you and your passengers in danger. Also, without proper maintenance, the resulting repairs can be expensive and inconvenient. It’s best to keep up on the maintenance of this system, rather than deal with an accident and repair.
