Why is routine car service important?
Simply put, your car will run better and longer. At Fifth Gear Automotive, we have 15 service bays in our shop and are capable of offering everything from preventative and scheduled service to a complete engine overhaul and rebuild. Let us take care of all your maintenance needs and help prevent major issues down the road.
Whether it’s a busy schedule or just forgetting, if you ignore your basic maintenance needs such as fluids, brakes, filters, spark plugs, and belts then you are likely to develop more substantial issues that could put your vehicle out of commission and require costly repairs. This is why regularly scheduled service is important to keeping your vehicle running and running well. Don’t be tempted to put it off and take a huge risk!
Every vehicle manufacturer has a suggested service schedule that you can find in your owner’s manual. This is designed specifically for the make and model of your vehicle by an experienced team of auto engineers. If you follow this schedule then you are doing everything you can and should to keep your car running well. Having regularly scheduled maintenance by a trustworthy mechanic will help you spot potential issues before they become big problems. This could save you a lot of time, money, and frustration in the long run!
Some services need to be performed more frequently while others can go a longer time before needing to be repeated. Some vehicles even have indicator lights that will light up when it’s time to service a particular area of your vehicle. Don’t ignore those lights! Either a sensor in your vehicle or an internal clock is letting you know that it’s time to take care of your car before a problem occurs!
Is it worth it?
Many people wonder if paying for the suggested routine maintenance will be worth it in the long run. Can you “stretch” your car maintenance to save a few bucks? Well, there are some great benefits to routine service and maintenance that you don’t want to miss!
The all-important MPGs! Regular oil changes, tire rotations, clean filters, and properly inflated tires all help your vehicle drive further with less fuel. We all know how gas prices have risen over the past decade so this is one area that is easy to feel the impact.
This might not be as noticeable to you as fuel efficiency, but it is still just as important. We need to all do our part to reduce the environmental impact of our cars. When your emissions system is working properly, your daily driving will have less of an effect on the air where you and your family live.
Peace of Mind
Knowing that your vehicle is in the regular watch and care of a trusted mechanic will give you the comfort to drive in peace. Yes, unexpected things can happen, but regular maintenance, service, and inspection will spot a large amount of problems BEFORE they happen, and that can save your time, your money, and even your life.
Sometimes issues occur beyond regular service and maintenance. No problem! Let us diagnose the issue and recommend the best solution for you and your vehicle. Just remember a good rule of thumb is to get a potential issue checked out by a trusted mechanic instead of hoping it will “just go away!”
