Raise your hand if your car has 100,000 miles.
Keep it raised if you have 200,000 miles.
Keep it up for 300,000 miles. By this point, most of you have lowered your hands, and if we were sitting in the same room, you’d be looking around to see who’s left. If you had all of Manager Rob Marflak’s Parma Heights Rad Air customers in that room, you’d have two people left. And one of those customers is leaving our Rad Air car care experts scratching their heads.
Our Parma neighbor Ken’s 1996 GMC Suburban has hit 539,600 miles and counting.
Rob remembers the other one of those two vehicles whose owners would still have their hands raised. “We had an airport vehicle come into the shop with over 400k on it, but when you drove it, it felt like it was about to fall apart.” Ken’s Suburban still rides smooth – no knocks or bumps or anything.”
The secret to the vehicle’s success should come as no surprise. Regularly scheduled maintenance and oil changes have been the key. When asked if there was anything special or above the normal protocol being done to help Ken’s vehicle hit that milestone Rob said Ken “just always does what is recommended and suggested.” This is proof once again that the pros at Rad Air only suggest what needs to be done, and if you follow their recommendations, you’ll get the most out of your vehicle’s performance.
As much as they’d like to take full credit for this miraculous mileage mark, Rob admits that the team at Rad Air has never seen anything like it. “I had an old Chevy Silverado with 270,000 miles on it and thought that was pretty good, but this guy blew me out of the water!”
Don’t feel too bad, Rob. We have a feeling you aren’t the only one!
