Do you ever wonder why your auto shop gives you a sticker suggesting when to get your next oil change? This sticker is to serve as a reminder to keep your car’s service up-to-date. This will help minimize car problems, thereby preventing costly auto repair in the future.
For example, when you visit your auto repair shop for a basic oil change, make sure that the mechanic takes a look at your transmission, brakes, and fluid levels. With a failing transmission the car will soon be unable to be driven. Transmissions are guaranteed to cost you thousands to get repaired and in a lot of cases are actually going to cost more than the value of your car. Having brakes checked goes without saying as failing brakes are one of the biggest road hazards to not only yourself but to others as well. Have your mechanic go through all the fluids, (brake fluid, transmission fluid, windshield wiper fluid, coolant, etc.) and make sure they are all up to the correct levels. As simple as this may seem. this will help prevent many serious problems to your car in the future.
Regular checkups for your vehicle are almost as important as regular check ups for you at your doctor’s office. The more you keep up to date with your vehicle, the more likely your vehicle is to be healthy. So make sure you take your vehicle out to your local auto repair shop for a quick and easy car service.
