car on road

If you drive a performance car or SUV, you want to take every measure possible to ensure it stays in good shape and running well. For many drivers of precision-engineered vehicles like BMW, Audi, Porsche, Subaru, etc., warming up the engine is a part of taking care of your vehicle. But is it necessary?

My 97 Jeep broke down on HWY 80, 30 miles East of Reno. Needing a place to get towed, I called Nicks automotive and as luck would have it Tony answered. His knowledge and experience had my Jeep running like a top in a lot less time than I could have and I'm a mechanic! Great shop, awesome people. Competitive pricing!!

At Nick's Automotive in Reno, we understand all too well the importance of changing your oil regularly. Three to five thousand miles sounds like a lot, but it doesn’t really take that long to rack them up. The busier you are, the more you probably drive, and the more likely you are to forget it’s time to change your oil. Here are some reasons to pay attention to your oil changes, and help you better understand why oil changes are so important.
