5 Reasons To Keep Your Car Well-Maintained
Nov 15th, 2018
Thanks for visiting the Guignard Garage auto care blog. Today’s post lists 5 important reasons Sumter drivers should follow recommended maintenance schedules.
1. Be Safe
A well-maintained car doesn’t put you and your passengers at unnecessary risk. Think brakes, headlamps, tires.
2. Get Better Fuel Economy
Regular maintenance is an investment in optimum fuel economy. Inadequate tire pressure, a dirty fuel system and a clogged air filter are just a few things that reduce fuel economy.
3. Preserve Resale Value
How many Sumter used car buyers will pay full Blue Book for a car with a filthy engine, clogged filters and bald tires?
4. Don’t Void Your Warranty
Your warranty claims may be denied if your service history doesn’t fulfill the minimum requirements recommended by the vehicle manufacturer.
5. Save Money
Regular maintenance reduces the chance of catastrophic failures and repairs.
Here are some Guignard Garage tips to help you remember the main items:
First: Fluids. Oil, transmission fluid, coolant, power steering fluid, brake fluid, differential fluid, etc. We can take care of all of these for you at Guignard Garage in Sumter.
Then think Tires. Air, rotation, balancing, and alignment. And while you’re thinking tires, think brakes and shock absorbers.
Air and Fuel. Air filter replacement, fuel filters and Guignard Garage fuel system cleaning.
This doesn’t cover everything, but Guignard Garage will help you with the rest.
