It was not that long ago that reaching 100,000 miles on the odometer was a major accomplishment, one to be celebrated by the whole family. Back then, most odometers only carried five digits, and most drivers expected their vehicles to end up on the junk heap long before that 99,999 reading rolled over to 00,000. For the lucky drivers who made the grade, the rollover to all zeroes was truly remarkable, largely because so few vehicles were in that category.
How times have changed. These days, many vehicles make it to 100,000 miles, and car manufacturers have also gotten much more optimistic. Modern odometers are now six digits in length, and you will have to rack up a cool million miles to see that mileage counter display all zeros again.
The Road to 200,000
You may not be ready for the million miles club, but with United Auto Care in the passenger seat, you could be well on your way to 200,000 miles. Whether your vehicle has already racked up its first 100,000 mile mark or is still on its way, there are things you can do to increase the odds that the road to 200,000 will be smooth and free of breakdowns.

Regular Oil Changes
It you can only do one thing for your car, changing the oil regularly should be that one thing. Oil is the lifeblood of your engine, and without proper lubrication, your vehicle may not make the next 200 miles, let alone the next 200,000.
At United Auto Care, we specialize in expert oil changes, and we can get you back on the road quickly. Just make an appointment or drive in, and our expert technicians will change the oil, check the fluids and look for small problems that could jeopardize the road to 200,000. If everything is fine, we will send you on your way with a clean bill of health. If not, we will fix the problem, so you can head down the road to 200,000 with confidence.
Annual Tune-Ups and Inspections
Having your vehicle inspected is important, but the basic inspection focuses on the safety of your car, not necessarily its overall condition. When you bring your vehicle to United Auto Care for its annual safety inspection, we can go a step further, with a complete tune-up and detailed assessment of its condition.
This regular tune-up is a great way to extend the life of your vehicle, and over the long run, the preventative maintenance you do can save you money. If you want your vehicle to last, you need to treat it right, and United Auto Care can be your partner in the endeavor.
The road to 200,000 miles is not as daunting as you might think. If you take care of the car you drive, your vehicle will return the favor, and you can enjoy the road ahead with confidence. Just let United Auto Care be your automotive partner, and you can reach the 200,000 mile mark before you know it.
