Now that spring is here, it is time to get your car ready for any spring and summer road trips you might take. A neglected car can lead to bigger problems down the road, eventually costing you even more money. Because of this, April is recognized as Car Care Month.
In 2014, at car care events held across the country, the Car Care Council found that 84% of vehicles participating in the events were in need of some sort of service or repairs. The biggest problem was oil changes; in fact, 25% of the cars at the events needed an oil change. Other common problems included dirty air filters, worn out windshield wipers, and coolant issues.
Of course, all of these issues on their own are relatively minor. But, if you have more than one of these issues or if you just choose to ignore it, it can lead to much bigger (and more expensive) problems. That is why preventative, routine maintenance is so important.
If you want to take care of your car this month and catch up on its maintenance, schedule an appointment today with us here at Gjovik Auto.
