Fix small problems before they become big problems
Small problems can turn into big problems if left unfixed. Keeping up with regular vehicle maintenance could help prevent costly repairs later on and even extend the lifespan of your vehicle. The fact is, regular servicing and maintenance takes less time and costs less than a major repair. If one part fails, it could affect how the whole car runs. For newer models, regular servicing is often a prerequisite when it comes to maintaining your warranty. And if you’re thinking about selling your car, consistent service history is a definite selling point and could mean a better sale price for you. Take a look at our top three reasons for maintaining your car in top condition.
Safety comes first
Safety is top of the list every time. Ensuring the critical components of your car – like the braking and steering systems, tyres and lights, and seatbelts – are in perfect working condition is vital to ensuring you, your family and those sharing the road with you are safe at all times. Many road accidents are caused by worn-out tyres that don’t grip the road, brakes that fail, headlights that don’t work or seatbelts that have malfunctioned. In many cases, these issues could be avoided with regular maintenance. Having your car serviced regularly reduces the chance of these issues arising and ensures your car remains in top condition at all times. It also prevents parts from breaking in your car that could cause larger – and more expensive – issues requiring more extensive repairs. However, if the worst scenario does happen, help is always available from our expert mechanics at Drury Tires.
Keeps your car performing better
Like most equipment used often, your car performs as well as it’s cared for. Keeping up with car care not only reduces the wear and tear of the engine and other components, it also helps extend the lifespan of your vehicle. The older the car, the more complicated and often expensive it is to maintain. But regular maintenance helps improve its performance. Like changing the oil and oil filter at each service – by doing so, abrasive dirt and particles are flushed out of the engine, prolonging its lifespan and saving you from having to pay for expensive repairs to the engine.
Saves you money
Keeping your car in top condition can also save you money in the long-term: not just from costly repairs that could have been avoided, but better fuel efficiency means savings at the pump too. A well-maintained car is also better for the environment, reducing harmful emissions into the air.
Staying on top of your car maintenance schedule prevents larger issues that could keep you off the road. What’s more, when it comes to selling your car, a well maintained and regularly serviced vehicle holds its value better and could help you secure a better sale price.
