We hope 2016 was a great year for you, and hopefully your vehicle?
With the new year well underway and with more colder months ahead, this could be new issues for your car.
Weather conditions will change throughout this winter that could affect your car or truck, so hopefully you had scheduled proper maintenance last year. There are some consumers that believe little things like oil changes, tire rotation and regular tune ups are a “waste of time”…
These are also the same people we see year in and year out with the most problems.
Most car owners don’t realize that when we conduct maintenance or repairs on your vehicle, many times there are strong signs of neglect! We can usually tell who’s being “honest” when we ask certain questions regarding how well (or not well) you’ve taken care of your car.
Oil changes are usually a “tell-tale” sign that you weren’t exactly on the “up and up” with vehicle maintenance or preventative maintenance… Nothing lasts forever and certainly the working parts of your car or truck won’t either if consistent “attention” isn’t there.
Prolonging the life of your vehicle will strongly lie with how well you take care of it.
Now, no mechanic or service shop can guarantee your car will run forever even with regular maintenance. But we can almost guarantee that it won’t run forever if you neglect regular service…
So as we get ready to brave the elements of winter here in the North East part of the country, we sincerely hope that you will take all necessary precautions and make sure your car or truck is being serviced as scheduled by your mechanic.
We are always happy to evaluate and look at potential problems for you, and make the proper recommendations that’s best for you and your safety. Rob’s Automotive & Collision Center is here 6 days a week to accommodate even the busiest of schedules. We understand “life” can get in the way of getting us your car, so when things are crazy, just give us a call and we’ll work with your schedule.
Thanks for checking in and have a great year!
