Regular Car Service Saves You Money

Putting off regular vehicle service is a boo-boo almost everyone makes. In our rush to get started on the road, we do not take the time to make certain our car, truck, or SUV is ready to roll. The next thing you know, your radiator has sprung a leak or your engine has burned up in the summer heat. Which do you think will cost you more? A gallon of coolant or a brand-new engine?


Extend the Lifespan of Your Car

Keeping your car maintained isn’t simply to make sure you get a cheaper, hassle-free road trip. In the long run, keeping your car maintained extends its life for far longer than a minimally maintained one.


Safety On The Road

No one wants to be stranded on the side of the highway in the middle of nowhere, or worse. keeping your car in tip-top shape can make certain you and your friends and family reach your destination safely. So, before you head out on vacation, take a look at this short car summer-proofing checklist:

Air Conditioner

  • When you run your A/C, check for strange odors, odd sounds, or a lack of cooling. If any or all of these problems pop up, you’ll most likely need to get your A/C system checked out.

Coolant

  • Check your radiator or overflow tank levels to ensure your engine is being properly cooled. Using a coolant tester can confirm your water/coolant mix is good.

Automotive Fluids

  • Check your oil, brake fluid, and transmission fluid to ensure your car’s vital mechanical systems are effectively lubricated at all times.

The 3 ‘B’s’

  • Brakes

    Remove the tires one-at-a-time and inspect your brake pads and/or shoes for any visible signs of wear-and-tear.

  • Battery

    A battery tester can check the power levels of your battery to ensure your car starts up each time you need it to.

  • Blades

    Ensure your windshield wiper blades are in good condition and not jumping across your dry windshield or leaving streaks on a wet one.
