When was the last time you had your car serviced? Keeping up with regular car maintenance is an expense, but the potential costs of damage that can happen in an engine, transmission, and suspension due to lack of maintenance is much greater. Some vehicle owners try to save money by extending the time between the vehicle maintenance services on their car.

So what happens if you don’t take care of preventative auto maintenance? When things like a spark or glow plugs start to wear out, filters not replaced, or the oil changed, you may notice the following symptoms:

  • Decreased fuel efficiency
  • Lack of power when accelerating
  • Cabin air quality is diminished
  • Noisy motor from oil sludge building up

These basic vehicle maintenance items can cost you money in urgent car repair, and that's before you get too worn safety items like brakes, shock absorbers, or transmissions!

Preventative vehicle maintenance makes sure your car stays in good health! For example, if your suspension is wearing out, a maintenance service will alert you to a potential problem so you can replace the appropriate parts. It can also uncover hidden engine damage that doesn't necessarily impact your ability to drive the car. If you drive with little to no oil in your car for an extended period of time, you can severely damage the head gasket or the pistons. This type of car repair can cost a small fortune. Not a great trade-off when regular car maintenance could have solved the problem for just a couple hundred dollars.

A mechanical failure on the open road can have devastating consequences, especially if a critical part of the braking, steering or suspension is involved. By following the regular car service & maintenance checklist, your mechanic can identify potentially dangerous wear on the vital components and systems of your vehicle.

Tip to Remember: Don’t wait for the service light to come on, but be proactive with quality vehicle maintenance!
