Get the most out of your vehicle! Preventative Maintenance Is a Must!

August 31, 2021

Why is regular maintenance for me, you might ask?  Well silly, it is for everyone!  Preventive maintenance is the single most important thing you can do for your vehicle. Some items to consider on adding to your vehicle maintenance checklist are:

  • Tire inspections
  • Oil changes
  • Fluid checks
  • Lights inspection
  • Windshield wiper inspection
  • Brake checks
  • Engine air filter changes

Keeping up with the CAR-dashians is important! Below are just some of the many ways that preventative maintenance will benefit your pocket, your safety, and your future.

Save Money

Keep that money where it belongs, in your pocket! Regular vehicle maintenance doesn’t cost nearly as much money or time when compared to replacing a fully damaged part. Replacing an entire engine is much more expensive than just scheduling your regular oil changes. Something as simple as getting your vehicle’s alignment checked and rotating your tires regularly, can save you the headache of having to replace all your tires. A survey conducted by AAA found that over 60% of Americans put off checking their tire pressure on a regular basis. It is beneficial to check to make sure everything is running properly now, so in the future, you won’t have to overspend.

Stay Safe

As a family-owned auto service at T.P. Brake and Muffler, we treat our clients like family, and we want our family members to drive in the safest ways possible. Your family’s safety relies on you maintaining good care of your vehicle. Ignoring routine maintenance puts you at risk of a mechanical failure. For example, if you don’t take care of your brakes, they could end up malfunctioning and cause an accident – putting you, your loved ones, and other vehicles (and passengers) at risk. Preventative maintenance is needed to keep yourself safe and other drivers as well. Always remember that driving a well-maintained vehicle is your responsibility as a good citizen!

Prevent Future Damage

Prioritizing the importance of your vehicle’s routine maintenance can help you keep your vehicle longer. It also allows your vehicle to run more efficiently. Often, better gas mileage is accompanied by regular maintenance. Keeping your engine tuned can result in an improvement of gas mileage by an average of 4%. Proper tire inflation improves your gas mileage by up to 3%, in some cases. To prevent future inconveniences, plan for your regular maintenance with us! And remember, you don’t have to have an appointment – just come by!
