Chevrolet Parts That Wear Down Over Time

Chevrolet Parts

It would be wonderful if cars stayed in pristine condition forever, but we all know that this just isn’t realistic. Sooner or later, some of the parts in your Chevy will wear down and need to be replaced.

These are the Chevrolet parts that wear out most often.

Oil Filter

The nice thing about oil filters is that they are able to be cleaned. When you get your oil changed, there’s a good chance you’ll be able to keep your current filter.

However, they get dirty quickly, so the next time you get a change, the filter will probably have to be replaced.

Lights

Both head- and taillights generally last between 500 and 1,000 hours. This is dependent on the type your Chevy uses.

Windshield Wipers

You should be able to get at least a year out of a new sent of wipers. Even if you don’t use them a ton, the rubber can crack due to heat.

Battery

A typically battery doesn’t have a very long lifespan – generally only between three and five years. This is why it’s a smart idea to have yours tested regularly.

Brake Pads

Your brake pads are vital for giving you stopping power, but they get thinner the more they’re used. They can usually stay in good shape for about 20,000 miles.

Tires

Tires can last a very long time – up to 50,000 miles. In order to get to that number, however, they need to be regularly rotated. If they aren’t, you’ll probably end up needing to replace them at 20,000 miles or sooner.

If your car needs need parts – or you just need help maintaining them – make an appointment with the service center at Carlen Motors.
