Some car repairs seem to be seasonal, according to a recent study. Drivers can avoid breakdowns with the help of preventive care by the Madison auto care technicians at one of Madison Auto Care's seven NAPA service centers.
If you're like many drivers, you may think that winter is the hardest month for cars because of the harsh cold. Although it's true that the freezing cold is hard on cars, you might be surprised to know that each season creates its own problems for vehicles, at least according to a recent survey. Automoblog.net reports on the survey, noting that certain car parts seem to be more prone to need repairs at certain times of the year.
"According to the study, spring is the most common time to experience issues with the window motors, window regulators, timing chain, and wheel speed sensors. The timing chain in particular accounts for 44 percent of repairs and will most likely be replaced during the spring," automoblog.net reports.
Automoblog.net adds, "By comparison, summer is not just about road trips, beaches, and refreshing drinks. The study also revealed that HVAC failure, broken cooling fans, timing chain repairs, and window lift motors are the most common car issues when the weather gets toasty. During the fall, plunging temperatures will cause problems with the air springs, engine distributor, timing cover gaskets, and heater system.
"The frosty winter season is not without its usual challenges. During this time, your car’s heater system, oil cooler lines, windshield washers, and headlight bulbs will require extra attention."
The good news is that there is a way to avoid these seasonal breakdowns - prevention. Preventive maintenance will help prolong your car's life and help you avoid large repair bills by catching problems while they're still small. Then, you can go enjoy stress-free shopping at the farmer's market.
The best way to handle preventive maintenance is to develop a relationship with a trusted Madison auto repair specialist like those at one of Madison Auto Care's seven conveniently located NAPA auto service centers: Clausen Auto, Handel Auto, Genin’s Auto, Capitol Tire, Odana Tire, Hansen’s Auto, or Aeschbach Auto.
