Your vehicle is likely your second largest investment, with your home being number one. Just like your home, you really do need to invest in maintenance work for your vehicle.
A vehicle that receives regular maintenance will help you avoid more costly repairs down the road and will deliver the performance and enjoyment you need and expect.
The Car Care Council, www.carcare.org, recently conducted a survey and found that:
*25% of cars had low or dirty engine oil.
*13% had low or contaminated brake fluid
*18% had dirty air filters.
*17% had inadequate cooling protection or low coolant levels.
*18% needed new belts
*16% needed new windshield wiper and
*27% had low or contaminated washer fluid
Overall, 89% of vehicles were in need of at least one service or repair.
As you can see, most of these vehicles simply needed some type of basic maintenance work completed. In general, basic maintenance is far less expensive than ignoring an issue, which most always ends up costing you quite a bit more.
Is your vehicle in need of some basic maintenance? If so, get’r done before the snow flies!
