Time and money are often two of the reasons why people neglect to, or postphone, the servicing of their vehicle at the mileage intervals as recommended by the manufacturer. The fact is, it is a false economy to do this. Here are the reasons why:
Accidents Cost Money
You simply can not put a price of the safety of you, your family and other road users and any accident, big or small, will have an financial impact or backlash. Regular trips to your mechanic will avoid worn brakes, improperly inflated or worn tires, worn wiper blades, exhaust leaks, faulty wheel bearings etc. All small things that can be addressed before they become bigger, more expensive problems and compromise your safety on the road.
Performance, Reliability and Efficiency
A regularly serviced and well-maintained vehicle will perform at its peak and also be more efficient when it comes to fuel consumption. You can also have peace of mind that you can rely on your vehicle not to break down or let you down for some minor reason. Let’s face it, your car is one of the most expensive purchases you will make. Take good care of it.
Avoid The Big Expenses
Regular servicing can prevent bigger breakages later. Regular servicing also offer your mechanic the opportunity to pick up on any potential problems that can be addressed before it becomes a major problem with a major repair bill. Invest in servicing now and avoid a staggering repair bill later.
Better Resale or Trade-in Value
When the time comes to sell your car or trade it in for a new vehicle you would want to best price possible, right? A proven service record and a vehicle that is well-maintained, inside and out, will fetch a better price and sell that much easier.
