When to Bring in Your Vehicle
How do you know when to bring in your vehicle for an inspection? One of the first places to start is with the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance schedule. Most manufacturers will recommend it at specific time or mileage intervals, for example annually, or perhaps every 20,000 miles. Older vehicles should be inspected more frequently than newer vehicles to avoid problems.
In addition to the manufacturer’s recommendations, think about the way you drive the car. Driving conditions, such as a lot of stop-and-go driving, or hauling heavy loads, can contribute to more wear and tear on the vehicle and necessitate more frequent check-ups.
You can also pay attention to the way your vehicle is running, and bring it in if you notice anything different. For example, a car that stalls frequently, experiences rough idling or catches during acceleration, or experiences difficulty starting the engine can all be signs of bigger potential problems. In addition, listen for suspicious sounds like high-pitched squealing at low speeds, grinding, or other noises that you have never heard before.
Catching these things early and bringing your vehicle in for a complimentary comprehensive 20-point inspection from the experts at Town Center Automotive may help avoid more costly repairs in the future.
