Road Trips: This Is How to Prepare

If you are looking forward to a road trip in the near future, then Lithia Volkswagen of Reno's team strongly recommends that you do the following things before you leave Reno and hit the road.

The most important thing to remember is to make sure that your vehicle's maintenance and repair needs are met. Bring your car in to be inspected before you go.


Does My Car Need Synthetic Oil?

"Would you like synthetic oil or conventional oil?" Most car owners are faced with that choice each time they take their vehicle in for an oil change. However, many consumers don't know what synthetic oil is or if their car needs it. The Lithia Volkswagen of Reno service team can help.

Synthetic oil is an artificial engine lubricant created with chemical compounds. It is designed to provide better lubrication and superior engine protection when compared to conventional, or natural, oil. 


How to Read the Letters and Numbers on a Tire

Tires play an important role in getting you safely to your destination. There is a group of abbreviations on the side of your tire that explain critical information about the right fit for your vehicle. A little explanation will help guide you.
