The life expectancy of your vehicle changes drastically if you do not make appropriate repairs. While the average vehicle is now expected to last well past the 100 thousand mile mark, owners that do not make proper repairs may have their vehicles cease working before this milestone.
We know that car troubles and repairs can be costly. While it may seem like a repair or routine maintenance can wait another month, your vehicle may be suffering in the process. More often than not, this will result in a much more costly repair later on down the road.
Common Repairs and Maintenance (Specials)
The following repairs and maintenance needs to be on top of your to-do list when keeping your vehicle in tip-top shape.
- Fluid Changes: Oil, brake, windshield wiper, power steering and antifreeze fluids need to be drained and refilled routinely. These fluids allow your vehicle to operate smoothly, oil keeps the engine lubricated and antifreeze ensures your vehicle never overheats.
- Filter Changes: Oil, air, fuel and transmission filters need to be changed at different intervals. These filters keep particles out of your vehicle’s most vital components to ensure they never cause damage.
- Brakes: Brake changes need to be made every 30,000 miles to be safe. Depending on your braking and driving habits, you may need your brakes changed sooner.
Timing belts, repairing broken hoses and belts as well as general engine and transmission servicing needs to be done according to your vehicle’s manufacturer’s recommendations.
The Auto Repair Place has something just for you. When repairs or maintenance simply do not fit into your budget, you can rely on our specials to help you save money. Our specials change often, but you will find everything from oil change discounts to specials that lower the price of new brakes.
