Scheduled Car Service Saves You Cash

Putting off regularly scheduled vehicle service is a boo-boo that everyone makes. In our rush to get started on the road, we do not take the time to ensure our vehicle is in tip-top shape. Before you know it, your radiator needs replacing or your engine has overheated in the summer heat. Which do you think will cost you more? A gallon of coolant or a brand-new engine?

Extend the Life of Your Car

Keeping your car, truck, or SUV in good condition isn’t just to make certain you get a cheaper, problem-free road trip. In the long run, keeping your car maintained ensures its longevity for far longer than a minimally maintained one.

Safety On The Road

No one plans to be stranded on the side of the highway in the middle of nowhere, or worse. keeping your vehicle maintained can make sure you and your friends and family get to your destination safe and sound. So, before you head out on vacation, take a look at this brief summer car maintenance checklist:

Air Conditioning

  • When you turn on your A/C, check for weird smells, odd noises, or a lack of cold air. If any or all of these problems pop up, you’ll most likely need to get your A/C system checked out.

Engine Coolant

  • Check your radiator or overflow tank levels to make sure your engine is being effectively cooled. Using a coolant tester can confirm your water/coolant mixture is properly mixed.

Engine Fluids

  • Check your oil, brake fluid, and transmission fluid to ensure your car’s vital mechanical systems are appropriately lubricated at all times.

The 3 ‘B’s’

  • Brakes

    Remove your tires one-at-a-time and inspect your brake pads and/or shoes for any noticeable indicators of wear-and-tear.

  • Battery

    A battery tester can check the power levels of your battery to make sure your car starts every time you need it to.

  • Blades

    Make sure your windshield wiper blades are in excellent condition and not jumping across your dry windshield or leaving a mess on a wet one.
