Owning a car is a responsibility. The health of your vehicle is not something you should just leave up to luck. This St. Patrick's Day, we're here to remind you to take care of your car, truck or SUV. This will help take any "bad luck" out of the equation, so you can have a safer and healthier vehicle that gets you where you need to go.
Regular Automotive Maintenance
Probably the best thing you can do as a vehicle owner (or lessee) is to remember its routine maintenance needs. In our industry, we call it "preventative maintenance" and that's for good reason. Taking care of the vehicle's basic needs will help prevent major problems from happening. Some of the most important auto maintenance services include oil changes, tire rotations, brake services, cooling system services, transmission services, wheel alignments and fuel system services.
Avoiding Automotive Problems
If you keep up with maintenance per the vehicle manufacturer's recommendations or your mechanic's suggested schedule, you can keep you car running better and ensure the mechanical equipment lasts longer. Failing to provide basic maintenance for your vehicle will generally just lead to bigger problems. Regular inspections along with the standard maintenance services can help you catch problems before they happen. It can be a pain to take your car in for service and routine maintenance costs can add up. Still, the long-term cost savings are usually well worth it if you can avoid major breakdowns and more expensive automotive repairs.
Luck vs. Prevention
Can we promise that you won't have some bad luck as a driver? No. We've all run over nails and popped our tires. We've all been the unfortunate victims of car trouble that we can't fully control. Taking care of the necessary maintenance simply helps minimize the risk of major automotive problems. Otherwise, if you ignore your car's basic needs, you are leaving things completely up to chance. Some issues are simple physics and mechanics. Luck has nothing to do with it. If your engine doesn't have clean oil, it will eventually fail and you won't be driving anywhere.
