10 Benefits of Preventative Maintenance

If you want to protect the ones you love, you do your best to remove or reduce their safety risks, right? Well, what about showing some love to your vehicle, too?


If you love your car, truck, SUV, van, or fleet vehicle, give it some tender loving care with preventative maintenance. When you service your personal and fleet vehicles with preventive maintenance, they can operate their best, help you and your passengers travel with less risk, and reliably transport you for many years to come.


Here are ten benefits of preventive auto maintenance:


  1. With preventive maintenance, you lower your overall maintenance costs.

  2. You protect your investment and tend to have higher resale rates when buyers know you took exceptional care of your vehicle.

  3. Preventative maintenance reduces the risk of breakdowns that could cause you to miss work, miss an important meeting, or be late seeing your child’s sports or musical performance.

  4. By providing preventive maintenance on your vehicle, you can decrease your personal stress levels.

  5. If you are image conscious and care about people’s first impressions of you when you get into your car, clean, well-maintained vehicles tend to look nicer, even when the vehicle is an older model.

  6. Preventive maintenance gives you confidence that there will be fewer repair expenses per year.

  7. Factory-recommended auto maintenance helps your car operate at its best, and this allows you to be more productive in your day.

  8. Your well-maintained older vehicle that never misses a preventive maintenance appointment will likely save you from having to purchase a newer vehicle unexpectedly, which saves you money in the long run.

  9. Preventive maintenance will help make your mother (or anyone who deeply cares about you) more calm; reducing her stress when she is in the car with you, or thinking about you while you’re driving around town.

  10. When you take care of your vehicle, it will take care of you. Self-care is a good thing because that means you have a healthy sense of self-worth -- and this applies to your body, your health, your diet, your belongings, your car, and more.
