If you ever wonder why vehicle maintenance is important, think about what could happen if you don’t service your car! Even though you think your vehicle is running just fine, the damage could be taking place in the engine. All of a sudden you could be stranded on the side of the road, waiting for a tow truck.

Let’s say you go an extra mile in between oil changes. This means you will be running your car with dirty oil or very little oil. This can quickly result in your engine overheating, causing damage to the head gasket and pistons, as well as the transmission. You will be facing costly engine or transmission repairs at the least. Even worse, you may have to junk your car and end up buying another one. A basic oil change would have been much cheaper!

Another example is to skip rotating your tires about every 6,000 miles. The result would be your tires are wearing in uneven tread-wear patterns. You will probably end up having to purchase a whole new set of tires much quicker than expected.

Basic car maintenance, whether it’s an oil change, tire rotation, wheel alignment, or a tune up, will provide you with a reliable vehicle for many miles. Plus, during each service, your mechanic will have an opportunity to look for hidden damage or other potential problems, such as failing shocks or worn-out brake pads. Don’t wait until you have a roadside breakdown, or even worse, be the cause of an accident, before taking care of basic car maintenance.

A word of advice: As mentioned above, the cost of preventative vehicle maintenance is far less than major engine or transmission repair. Check your owner’s service manual for the manufacturer’s recommended service schedule, or ask your auto mechanic to keep you informed if any car maintenance is due on your vehicle.
