Auto Repair Tips

Want to Keep Your Car Happy and Healthy? Befriend Your Auto Mechanic

Save Yourself Thousands of Dollars on Auto Repair

When your vehicle is acting off, making a weird noise, or suddenly has some new, colorful warning lights shining on the dashboard, you know it’s time to visit an auto repair shop, and hope that whatever is wrong is an easy and inexpensive fix. Car repairs can be both costly and time-consuming, and you have other places to be and better things to spend your hard-earned money on.

But did you know that you can avoid the anxiety and fear of that trip entirely by getting your car on a regular vehicle maintenance schedule?

Routine car service, like getting regular oil changes, tire rotations, wheel alignments, brake inspections, battery checks, and other factory scheduled maintenance services, allows your expert car mechanic to inspect your vehicle and catch any potential problems before they can put a solid dent in your bank account or leave you begging your friends for a ride.

Prevention Begins With You

Preventative maintenance of your car can save you thousands – Just having your tires rotated regularly, and your wheel alignment checked can save you hundreds of dollars by keeping you from having to buy new tires too early.

Did you know skipping oil changes can lead to complete engine failure? A new engine, which you’ll need if you do not regularly have your oil changed and your fluids checked and changed, will cost you several thousand dollars or more.

Maybe you like being stranded somewhere when your car won’t crank because your battery has gone bad, something easily prevented by coming in for a regular battery inspection. Maybe you enjoy spending hours waiting for a tow truck or a ride and for intensive repairs to be made on your vehicle, but we bet you don’t.

Let’s be honest, no one wants to pay out for a tow truck or costly vehicle repair and spend hours or even days without a ride to call their own. The expert mechanics at Smitty’s Maintenance Repair and Collision will be the first to tell you that regular, preventative maintenance is the absolute best and cheapest way to keep your vehicle running long-term.
