No one likes to shell out money they don’t have to, especially on items or services they don’t feel they need immediately. Sadly, some people don’t realize that keeping up on auto maintenance & repair will increase the lifespan of their vehicle and save thousands of dollars over that same longer lifespan.
The purpose of regular maintenance is threefold:
- First, many parts of your vehicle have known general lifespans and are designed to wear out after so many years or miles of use. These may not have a direct or observable effect on your vehicle or its function at first, but often do. Regular auto maintenance & repair allows these parts to be observed over thousands of miles and repaired or replaced at the end of their functional lifespan.
- Secondly, the fluids your vehicle uses to keep the moving parts moving will also wear or burn out over time. Depending on the age, model, mileage, and your driving habits, these fluids will also need their levels checked and refilled or replaced. Not all of these repairs can or should be done by weekend warriors.
- Thirdly, a professional set of eyes will often notice changes over time in your vehicle that you may not see driving every day. Having a regular place to have your auto maintenance & repair taken care of every time you need it will also bring minor repairs to light, allowing them to be corrected long before they develop into major problems.
