4 Important Reasons to Service Your Car!

When was the last time you had your car serviced? Keeping up with regular vehicle 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. This alone is reason enough to service your car on a regular basis. You really don’t save money by extending the time intervals between the recommended vehicle maintenance services.

Preventative vehicle maintenance makes sure your car stays in good health! A multi-point inspection is a good way to find out if there are any issues with your car that need to be taken care of.

Here are four important reasons to service your car:

  • Increase your knowledge — Many drivers understand that you have to have regular oil changes and tire inspections. But anything beyond that may be a mystery. If you’re unsure what other maintenance items you should be planning for, getting a multi-point inspection is a great option. The technician can tell you exactly what is starting to wear out, what you need to be replaced right away, and what’s looking great in your vehicle. 
  • Your auto mechanic gets to know your car — When you take your car to the same auto mechanic for car maintenance and repairs, they get to know your car inside and out and are able to pinpoint exactly what to look for. If you’re buying a pre-owned vehicle, having a technician do a multi-point inspection is crucial because they can tell you if it is worth the price you are paying.
  • Improved safety and emissions — Getting a regular multi-point check can help you pass the required safety and emissions check. If you know ahead of time whether your car is at peak performance or if it needs a few repairs, you’re able to take care of any problems before it comes time to get the car tested. 
  • Peace of mind — You will gain peace of mind knowing that your car is in good running condition and is safe to drive.
