It can be a bit of a pain trying to stay on top of your car’s service needs. There are a lot of bad choices one can make when trying to keep your car in tip top shape. In general, it’s good to have an idea of what your vehicle needs every so often, and to know what all cars are going to need. Prevention is the best medicine here, and small steps in servicing your vehicle can make a huge difference in the life and resale value of your car, truck, or SUV.

Costs and Servicing Your Vehicle

Though it may feel expensive to take your ride into the shop as frequently as you should, it’s better to prevent catastrophe with regular checkups than the alternative. Regularly auditing and maintaining your vehicle can prevent more expensive problems like:

  • Reduced MPG: Low flow and dirty fuel injectors can hinder your fuel efficiency.
  • Sluggishness: Worn out spark plugs can neuter your acceleration and reduce fuel economy.
  • Overheating: Unchanged fluids in the system can build up heat faster than usual.

Other issues that can crop up from inadequate servicing of your vehicle include steering problems and car vibrations, alongside the dreaded dead battery. All of which can be minimized or eliminated with regular service.

Follow Your Maintenance Schedule

The best idea is to follow the maintenance schedule outlined by the manufacturer of your vehicle and get your car serviced by licensed professionals, like the factory-trained technicians at Bosak Honda Michigan City. Avoiding servicing your vehicle by its regular schedule or contracting sub-par technicians can lead to very costly repairs down the road. Adhering to the guidelines the manufacturer recommends can increase your car’s performance and keep it on the road longer. What’s not to love?
