Regular Vehicle Maintenance to Avoid Costly Repairs

“Pay now or pay later” may be an annoying cliche, but it really is true when it comes to maintaining your vehicle. If you don’t handle routine vehicle maintenance issues today, you are most definitely going to have something to pay down the road, and it will likely be far more costly. We don’t want to see that happen to you. We’d rather save you money overall. To that end, here are a few situations where it really is better to pay us now rather than later.

Oil Changes

Car maintenance must include regular oil changes, unless you want to have to pay for engine repair or even a new engine down the road. You’ve probably heard about people getting 100,000 or more miles on their car, and that is accomplished only by keeping up with oil and oil filter changes.

Tire Rotation & Alignments

Just because the new tires you purchased claim to last a set number of miles doesn’t mean you will ever realize that number if you do not have them rotated regularly and have the alignment corrected when necessary. A new set of tires needed far too often is an unnecessary expense.


Keeping up with brake car maintenance is another thing that can become more expensive if you fail to have it done when needed. The rotors will need to be turned or replaced if you wait too long, not to mention the fact that you could wreck your car if the brakes fail completely.

Obviously, there are plenty of other cases where a small repair can avoid a larger repair, and our ASE technicians will always do all they can to keep you paying less now for car maintenance, rather than more later.
