Why Preventive Maintenance Matters

As we head into the month of love, it’s important to recognize that our cars need love too. While they may not need flowers to feel loved, they do need regular, ongoing attention in the guise of preventive maintenance. Even though you may want to ignore it, preventive maintenance is the one routine that will not only extend the life and performance of your vehicle, it also has the power to keep you safe. You can’t say that about a dozen roses!

Reasons why it’s a good idea to stay on top of your preventive maintenance schedule:

Helps to keep your car a reliable one.
Improves overall engine performance.
Increases gas mileage.
Decreases the likelihood of getting stranded on the side of the road.
Helps you avoid extensive damage to car parts due to neglect.
Reduces the overall auto repair bills over the lifespan of your vehicle.
Increases resale value. 
Improves drivability.
Safety! Safety! Safety!

Basics of regular preventive maintenance include:

Oil changes
Fluid replacement
Belts and hoses checked and replaced as necessary
Filters replaced
Tires rotated, balanced, and checked for overall wear and tear
Transmission check up 
Battery check
Brakes, pads, and rotors checked

Every vehicle has its own special needs, so make sure you review your owner’s manual. Keep in mind, though, that often times it’s your auto mechanic who can work with you to come up with the best schedule to help you get the MOST out of your car.
