Purchasing a vehicle is one of the most significant purchases you may make in your lifetime, which means your car is a lifetime investment regardless of the make or model. Because your vehicle is such a precious investment, preventative maintenance is key to protecting your vehicle's longevity, driveability, and safety.
What exactly is preventative maintenance? Preventative maintenance is a regular service performed by a technician. Certain items will need to be changed at regular intervals, such as replacing your cabin and engine air filter and performing a wheel alignment. Our technicians can develop a preventative maintenance plan tailored to your owner’s manual, along with your specific driving habits.
Preventative maintenance allows our technicians to address any issues before they turn into bigger, more expensive problems. By keeping up on preventative maintenance, we often spot the budding signs of major auto repairs, which will save you money and time in the long-run. Not only is preventative maintenance better for your wallet, but it also prolongs the life of your vehicle.
Routine preventative maintenance will also improve your vehicle’s gas mileage. For example, if you fail to bring your vehicle to our shop to get your engine oil changed or engine air filter replaced, it will negatively affect your vehicle’s gas mileage. Performing preventative maintenance can help achieve your vehicle’s optimal fuel efficiency.
If you know a car lover in your life, preventative maintenance is the ultimate gift, as they can keep their trust co-pilot performing in tip-top shape for years to come. Schedule an appointment with the technicians at Ponder Auto Repair in Johnson City, TN for a touchless experience.
