Industry experts, manufacturers and consumers will all agree that a properly maintained vehicle runs more dependably, safely and ultimately longer than a vehicle that isn’t subject to preventative maintenance.

The older your vehicle becomes, the more likely it is to experience a breakdown. As such, preventative maintenance is performed on a vehicle while it is still properly functioning, to prevent a much more problematic breakdown in the future. Unplanned vehicle maintenance due to a breakdown will typically cost 3-5 times more than that of a scheduled maintenance.

By completing all factory recommended maintenance, you can rest assured knowing that your vehicle is always performing at it’s maximum potential. In addition to this, regular check up’s provide the opportunity needed to detect problems with your vehicle early on. Locating and assessing problem areas with your car is essential to saving a substantial amount of money on costly repairs when it becomes too little, too late.

So why should you schedule regular vehicle check up’s?

Besides a much more dependable car, preventative maintenance has many more advantages for vehicle owners including:

  • You are less likely to experience a costly vehicle breakdown.
  • Maintenance helps you to retain your factory warranty.
  • Your vehicle will maintain performance and drive like it is still new.
  • You can rest easy knowing your vehicle is safe for you and your family.
  • Your vehicle has a higher value should you wish to sell it or trade it in.

Chances are, your vehicle has a detailed maintenance schedule create by your car manufacturer that outlines specific services that must be performed on the various components that make up your vehicle. Typically, these are recommended at different milages, such as 90,000 miles, to help guarantee a well functioning vehicle. Plus, by completing these services at the proper mileages, you will maintain and in some cases extend your manufacturer’s warranty.
