Car Maintenance CheckList

When it comes to owning a vehicle, the single most important thing that you can do is take care of your vehicle. Think about how much money you have spent on your car - most likely tens of thousands of dollars. Now, imagine blowing off a service because you don’t really think you need it, although it won’t cost you much and it actually will protect vital car components and extend the lifespan of your vehicle. Seems silly, right? Well, the truth is, a recent survey by the Car Care Council found that 89% of vehicles in use were in need of at least one service or repair.

We understand that as a car owner, it can be difficult to bring your vehicle into a shop and trust that what the mechanics recommend is necessary to the overall integrity of your vehicle, and not just a way to get more money out of you. That is why it is so important to find an auto repair shop that you can actually trust and that will be 100% transparent with you. When you find a good auto repair shop, you’ll realize that recommended services are actually important, and help you save thousands on major repairs that can occur with poor vehicle maintenance.
