If you let your car go too long without routine service, you’ll shorten its life and risk expensive repairs.
You were headed back from the Holiday Express Flower and Model Train Show when you thought one of the lights on your dashboard had flickered on. You just caught it out of the corner of your eye and it didn’t stay on, but now you’re wondering if something is wrong with your car. You have to admit that you’re one of those people who isn’t really prompt about regular service and oil changes so now you’re wondering if there’s something seriously wrong with your car.
You’re right to wonder. The best way to prolong the life of your car and to avoid expensive repairs is to make sure you have a Madison auto care technician perform regular maintenance in order to keep things working and to catch small problems before they become big.
“If you don’t service your car, you might find that there are some unexpected drawbacks: Eventually, your car will become less safe to drive. During a service, a mechanic will flag any safety concerns with your vehicle and may be able to fix them too. The checks could help save you and your passengers from an avoidable accident,” according to rac.co.uk. “Routine check-ups ensure that your car runs as efficiently as possible. … If small problems are left to develop, they could become damaged beyond economical repair.”
But there are a lot of people out there who aren’t really good about ensuring their car gets regular maintenance. If that’s the case and it’s been awhile before a mechanic has gone over your car, you can sometimes catch issues by listening to your car “talk”to you.
Rac.co.uk notes seven ways in which your car tells you that something’s wrong: dashboard warning lights, funny noises, dripping fluids and mystery puddles, loss of power and frequent stalling, brakes that don’t seem to work promptly or that have other problems, smoke coming from under the hood or the exhaust, and/or vibrations.
If you notice any of these, or something else seems funny or off, it’s time to take your car to the trusted Madison auto care and auto repair specialists at one of Madison Auto Care's seven conveniently located NAPA auto repair centers: Clausen Auto, Handel Auto, Genin’s Auto, Capitol Tire, Odana Tire, Hansen’s Auto, or Aeschbach Auto.
