Avoiding Extra Repairs to your Vehicle

Avoiding repairs and unexpected breakdowns are important. To help prevent issues, make sure that you bring your vehicle in for regular maintenance inspections. That way, we will be able to check all the parts for any issues. Giving the vehicle a bumper to bumper inspection will help keep it running efficiently. When you own a vehicle, you will want to have it operating as long as possible. If you are not sure when regular maintenance should be done, contact us. You can also look in the owner’s manual to see what the recommendation is.


You will also want to check the tires on your vehicle regularly. This is an easy way in avoiding issues with the tires. If the tires are low on air, you will want to fill the tire as soon as possible. When a tire is low on air, it is more prone to blowing out. If the tire is over inflated, then it is more likely to pick up sharp objects on the road. When you notice a tire getting low on air, make sure to have it properly inspected. Schedule an appointment and bring it in. That way we can check for any issues or problems it may have. It is also important to check the spare tire as well.


Remember to check the fluids on a regular basis as well. This important before taking a long road trip as well. Make sure to always follow the oil change schedule for your vehicle. This will help keep the moving parts of the engine properly lubricated. If you run the vehicle without oil in it, then the engine might seize up. This will end up costing you more in the long run, because you need to replace the engine. If there are any odd noises or sounds from your vehicle, remember to contact us as soon as possible.
