Charleston Auto Repair and the Maintenance MindsetOct 22nd, 2015
As responsible Charleston residents, we know we need to take care of our cars, but it just seems really hard to remember to do it. We generally accept that many things in life require regular maintenance but just may have not applied it to our vehicles.
For example, we water and mow the lawn every week. Weed the flower beds and rake the leaves. We go to the dentist twice a year, take our clothes to the dry cleaner. Flu shots. Taking the kids for a checkup before school starts. So people really are maintenance minded. Charleston residents just need to learn to apply that mindset to cars. I mean, if you never brush your teeth or go to the dentist, you'll become painfully aware of your neglect when you get a big cavity. Once the damage is done, we learn our lesson and start to take better care of things.
Unfortunately, Charleston residents too often learn the hard automotive lesson when they have to take their vehicle to their Charleston auto center on a tow truck. So many times, a little routine maintenance would have prevented a breakdown.
Here's something that will help Charleston residents: The key to good vehicle maintenance starts with the oil change. Think about it – when you go in for a full-service oil change at Charleston Auto Repair, your friendly and knowledgeable service advisor will check all your fluids. If one of them is low, he can look for the reason. If your serpentine belt is worn, he'll see it and let you know. Corroded battery cable? They've got you covered. All of this takes a trained and experienced eye, more than you find at quick lube centers in Charleston. And they'll check to see if your vehicle's maintenance schedule has recommended any services at your current mileage.
So when you come in for an oil change at Charleston Auto Repair in Charleston, you get a visual inspection and a reminder for recommended services so you can avoid a total failure. And remember that your friendly and knowledgeable Charleston Auto Repair service advisor can help you work out a maintenance and repair plan, prioritizing and scheduling the work to make sure you and your family are safe and avoid expensive breakdowns.
