Are you planning to keep your vehicle longer than initially expected, and want to save money over the life of your car? If so, then now is the time to invest in regular preventive maintenance on your vehicle. It is often said that if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it. If you like your vehicle and intend to drive it for years to come, this is a flawed idea for many reasons. Simply put, fixing a broken car is much more expensive than maintaining a running one. Reliable transportation is essential during this COVID-19 outbreak, and the last thing anyone needs is to get stranded on the side of the road.
If you now realize that you may not buy that new car you planned on because of the economic downturn, then preventive maintenance is even more critical. Preventive maintenance is a pre-planned step that will reduce the costs of repairs and extend the life of your car. Vehicles are built today with tight tolerances, which means that the fluids you run in them need to stay clean. Otherwise, they will not properly lubricate the engine parts, which can cause excessive wear and heat unnecessarily.
Improving your fuel economy is another bonus of regularly scheduled preventive maintenance, by having simple things such as tire inflation checked and necessary tune-ups, you can plan on an additional 10% improvement in fuel economy.
Over time, preventive maintenance is much less expensive than unexpected repairs from a breakdown. Plus, with a breakdown, not only will you be spending more at the repair shop, but you will also lose valuable time while sitting on the side of the road waiting for a tow truck, and not being where you want to be.
