5 Reasons to Keep Your Car Well-Maintained
Sep 11th, 2017
Thanks for visiting the Pro-Tech Auto Repair auto care blog. Today’s post lists 5 important reasons Corcoran drivers should follow recommended maintenance schedules.
1. Be Safe
A well-maintained car doesn’t put you and your passengers at unnecessary risk. Think brakes, headlamps, tires.
2. Get Better Fuel Economy
Regular maintenance is an investment in optimum fuel economy. Inadequate tire pressure, a dirty fuel system and a clogged air filter are just a few things that reduce fuel economy.
3. Preserve Resale Value
How many Corcoran used car buyers will pay full Blue Book for a car with a filthy engine, clogged filters and bald tires? Maintenance records sell. If a buyer is looking at several cars and you can provide maintenance records and I don’t mean oil change receipts, bur periodical inspections and preventative maintenance done, they will always choose that one with records.
4. Don’t Void Your Warranty
Your warranty claims may be denied if your service history doesn’t fulfill the minimum requirements recommended by the vehicle manufacturer.
5. Save Money
Regular maintenance reduces the chance of catastrophic failures and repairs.
Here are some Pro-Tech Auto Repair tips to help you remember the main items:
First: Fluids. Oil, transmission fluid, coolant, power steering fluid, brake fluid, differential fluid, etc. We can take care of all of these for you at Pro-Tech Auto Repair in Corcoran.
Then think Tires. Air, rotation, balancing, and alignment. Tires tell a story of how the car is used, condition of shocks and struts, and alignment. While you’re thinking tires, think brakes and shock absorbers.
Air and Fuel. Air filter replacement, fuel filters and Pro-Tech Auto Repair fuel system cleaning.
This doesn’t cover everything, but Pro-Tech Auto Repair will help you with the rest.
