5 Reasons to Keep your Car Well Maintained

Properly maintaining your car is essential to keeping it in good, working condition!

Keeping up with vehicle maintenance probably isn’t the most exciting item on your to-do list. However, paying a little bit of routine attention (and cash) on your car is completely worth it—for your safety and your savings.

We’ve listed 5 reasons why you should keep your car maintained. Not only can it help keep your it out of the shop for major repairs, but it can also keep you from having to buy a new vehicle as long as possible. Take a look!

Reason #1 - Safety

A well-maintained car doesn't put you or your passengers at unnecessary risk. Think brakes, headlamps, & tires.

Reason #2 - Get Better Gas Mileage

Regular maintenance is an investment in peak fuel economy. Poor tire pressure, a dirty fuel system, and a clogged air filter are just a few things that bring down fuel economy.

Reason #3 -Protect Resale Value

How many Eureka used car buyers will pay full Blue Book for a car with a dirty engine, clogged filters, and bald tires?

Reason #4 - Don't Void your Warranty

Your warranty claims may be rejected if the service history doesn't deliver the base requirements recommended by your vehicle's manufacturer.

Reason #5 - Save Money

Regular maintenance lowers the chance of disastrous failures and repairs.

Here are some of Selbert's Auto Body's tips to help you remember the main items:

First: Fluids. Oil, transmission fluid, coolant, power steering fluid, brake fluid, differential fluid, etc. We can take care of all of these for you here at Selbert's Auto Body!

Then think Tires. Air pressure, rotation, balancing, and alignment. Since you're thinking tires, you should also think brakes and shock absorbers.

Finally, Air and Fuel. Air filter replacement, fuel filters, and Selbert's Auto Body's fuel system cleaning.

There you go—5 reasons to keep your car maintained, so you can enjoy the ride with less stress on your car and on you. If your car needs a little maintenance work, give us a call and Selbert's Auto Body would be happy to check it out!
