Even luxury vehicles that are built with superior quality need repairs or even replacements over time. Here are three of the most commonly replaced auto parts we see here at Lyon-Waugh Auto Group.


Car batteries aren’t meant to last forever. In fact, on average, most last around three to four years. However, batteries can last up to ten years if they’re well cared for.

Here are just a few things that can cause undue strain on your battery:

  • Frequently taking short trips that don’t give your battery time to charge
  • Extreme temperatures, both hot and cold
  • Leaving your headlights or interior lights on
  • Loose or corroded battery conditions 

Spark Plugs 

Spark plugs give your vehicle the spark needed to ignite its fuel/air mixture and help your engine generate power. Bad spark plugs can drastically decrease your vehicle’s fuel efficiency, leading to decreased power and even outright engine failure. Typically, we recommend changing your spark plugs every 30,000 miles.


Good tires do more than help your vehicle run smoothly. They also give you the traction you need to grip the road and maintain control of your vehicle.

On average, tires last approximately six years. While they can last longer, you shouldn’t continue using tires that are over ten years old.

It’s also important to replace your tires if you notice any of these warning signs: 

  • Frequently low or falling air pressure
  • Tread that is less than 4/32 of an inch
  • Bubbles or cracks on the sides
  • Uneven tread wear
