Vehicle Inspection and Maintenance
Fixing Your Present Vehicle Saves Money
Most of us want to get the most for our motoring dollar. One
of the best ways to do this is extending the life of your
current vehicle. With new car prices in the United States
averaging well over $10,000, money invested in keeping your
existing vehicle in good shape could save you hundreds--even
thousands--of dollars a year. When you consider the true
cost of buying a new car (price of the car, sales tax,
license and registration fees, insurance), it is not
difficult to justify investing a few hundred dollars to
repair your present vehicle.
Safety and Scheduled Maintenance
The safety aspect of properly maintaining your vehicle,
especially when it has high mileage, should not be
overlooked. Failing brakes, exhaust leaks and other problems
can be prevented by following sound car care practices.
Unfortunately, most manufacturers only provide maintenance
guidelines for the first 100,000 miles or so. Clear
procedures for maintenance beyond this mileage do not exist.
At best, manufacturers provide interval service schedules,
such as every 15,000 miles. These schedules should be
followed whenever possible. By doing so, you can reasonably
expect thousands more satisfactory miles from your vehicle.
High Mileage Inspection and Evaluation
If your vehicle has passed the 100,000 mile mark and you
want to significantly prolong its useful life, it is time to
have it thoroughly evaluated by a professional automotive
technician who can recommend needed repairs or service. This
facility is equipped to perform this service. We employ
technicians who use factory-level information detailing your
vehicle's service requirements.
Our high mileage inspection and evaluation goes beyond
cursory "once-overs" and is designed to get to the root of
potential problems. Ask your service advisor or technician
to show you exactly what is involved in this service. He or
she will be happy to go over the evaluation form with you
before you okay the inspection and provide you with a
comprehensive estimate for any work recommended as a result
of your vehicle's checkup. They will tell you about repairs
that are necessary today, and also alert you to items that
are potential problem areas you may want to address today
for more trouble-free miles tomorrow. Naturally, you make
the decision as to what work is actually performed.
Working together, we can add years to the life of your car
