You may think that car maintenance is just a way for your dealership or auto center to make money off of you. Your vehicle manufacturer recommends automotive maintenance for three primary reasons:
You will also find that proactive maintenance costs less than reactive repair.
Neglecting car maintenance can lead to all sorts of issues. Not rotating tires can lead to a blow out and an accident. Neglecting the fluids that keep your engine running can have dire consequences including your engine ceasing up. When you neglect your scheduled automotive maintenance, you put your life as well as the lives of people on the road around you at risk.
There are several performance elements that are impacted when you don’t properly maintain your car. Fuel efficiency is one of the biggest. If you want to maintain the mileage you were getting when you first got your car, keep it maintained. Proper brake maintenance helps your car stop efficiently as does flushing and refilling your brake fluid.
We’ve all heard the expression, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” This is true with cars as well. Every day we see issues that could be prevented by following the car manufacturer’s maintenance schedule. Some of these issues are catastrophic and the repairs come at a significant cost. When you maintain your vehicle, it will last longer with fewer issues.
