We’ve all heard the expression, “Why fix something that isn’t broken?” In many scenarios this phrase has a lot of merit behind it. If you have taken the same route to work everyday for the past two years and you’ve never been late, it would not make sense to take a new route. But, in other cases, this expression should be thrown out the window. Case 1: Your Car.
Nobody likes to experience a costly repair on their car that needs to be addressed immediately. The truth is, preventative maintenance will undoubtedly save you money in the long run and keep your car operating efficiently much longer. Preventative maintenance must be done before you experience a problem with your vehicle.
One of the most important things you should have done regularly is an oil change. Ironically enough, this is probably the simplest as well. A good rule of thumb is to bring your car or truck into Quality Lube Plus every 3,000 miles to ensure optimal performance.
Your oil isn’t the only thing that needs regular maintenance. We recommend that while you have your car in our shop for an oil change, you should:
- Have ALL of your fluid levels checked, replaced if necessary.
- Get your battery inspected.
- Have ALL belts checked for cracks or other damage.
- Have your filters inspected and/or replaced
While it may seem excessive to have all of these things done every 3,000 miles or so, we promise you’ll be thanking us when your car is running smoothly for years and years to come.
