Your vehicle isn’t the only aspect of life with recommended intervals: you have dental cleanings, physical exams, laundry, mowing the lawn and paying the bills.
What would happen if you didn’t follow these intervals? Well, you’d get more cavities. You might miss health issues that benefit from early detection and treatment. And you’d wear dirty clothes, be embarrassed by your overgrown lawn and have your utilities shut off.
People realize there are some things in life that we have to take care of regularly. If we don’t, there are negative consequences. For drivers who want to be more proactive with their car care, here are some simple ways to remember what has a maintenance interval.
First: Fluids. If it’s liquid, it’s got a replacement schedule. Oil, transmission fluid, coolant, power steering fluid, brake fluid, differential fluid, etc..Then, think Tires. They need air, rotation, balancing and alignment. And while you’re thinking tires, think brakes and shock absorbers. And what makes your vehicle go? Air and Fuel. Air filter replacement, fuel filters and a fuel system cleaning. Of course there are more items, but if you remember to take your vehicle in for these things, we will be happy to help you with the rest.
What if drivers don’t follow recommended service intervals? Your fuel economy will decrease, your vehicle won’t perform as well, your safety will be compromised and you’ll spend more in the long run. Reason enough to follow recommended service intervals.
