It seems that many drivers don’t know why car maintenance is important and tend to neglect it. They may be trying to save money on seemingly unnecessary items. Some drivers think that as long as their car is running, everything is fine. However, damage could be taking place in the engine. Keeping up with preventative vehicle maintenance is an expense, but the potential cost of damage that can happen in the engine, transmission, and suspension due to lack of maintenance is much greater. You really don’t save money by extending the time intervals between the recommended maintenance services.

Keeping up with regular car maintenance is vital because it checks the overall health of your car. For example, if your suspension is wearing out, your mechanic can alert you to a potential problem so you can replace the appropriate parts. It can also uncover hidden engine damage that doesn't necessarily impact your ability to drive the car. If you drive with little or no oil for an extended period of time, you can severely damage the head gasket or the pistons. This type of repair can cost a small fortune. Not a great trade-off when regular oil changes could have solved the problem for just a few bucks.

If you’re a driver that does not understand why car maintenance is important, you may tend to neglect regular vehicle maintenance. schedule an appointment.
