Six Ways You Could be Killing Your Car

Six Ways You Could be Killing Your Car


Owning a car can be a dream or a nightmare depending on how well you take care of your vehicle, says the non-profit Car Care Council. The following are six things that many motorists do that can harm their car and their wallet.




Ignoring the check engine light. Ignoring an illuminated check engine light can result in serious engine trouble and costly repairs. At the very least, this warning light could alert you to an engine problem that is negatively impacting fuel economy.



Failing to change fluids and filters. Many fluids are required for the operation and protection of vehicle systems and components. Checking fluid levels regularly, along with the filters, helps ensure that your vehicle runs dependably and extends vehicle life.



Neglecting your tires. Your vehicle's tires should be checked frequently for inflation and tread depth. Underinflated tires can wear out more quickly, needing to be replaced sooner, and can negatively impact safety, gas mileage and performance.



Not following a service schedule. Because many car parts and components wear out or become damaged over time, vehicles need to be routinely serviced in order to perform optimally. Routine inspections and timely repairs will help keep your car running efficiently and will help you avoid more expensive repairs down the road.



Keeping a dirty car. Allowing your car to go too long without a wash leads to buildup of damaging chemicals and dirt, increases the potential for rust from road salt and interferes with proper visibility needed for safe driving.



Being a severe driver. Whether it's stop-and-go traffic, extreme weather, rough roads or heavy loads, it can sometimes be difficult to limit severe driving conditions. However, you can drive smart and improve fuel economy by observing the speed limit; avoiding aggressive driving, including quick starts and stops; not hauling unnecessary items; and keeping your vehicle properly tuned.



"Because auto care isn't always a top priority for car owners, they might not realize they are doing things that adversely affect the performance, safety and value of their car," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "Routine maintenance can go a long way toward saving money, avoiding headaches and protecting your vehicle investment."

Testimonials

I had an issue with my SUV. I left it and the next day they took it for a test drive and could not find anything wrong. They volunteered to drive with me to duplicate the issue. They are extremely customer orientated, honest and willing to go the extra mile for you. Though they spent a day with my SUV and a about an hour driving with me and explaining what it could be, they did not charge me for their time or testing. They also did not pressure me into getting something fixed that didn't need repair right away. It's refreshing to find great customer service. They will have my business. Good people!
