29-Fall is the Time for Car Care

As autumn comes we should focus some of our Fall thoughts on
the weather that is about to visit us.Typically October brings a change of the seasons-virtually always rain,and in some areas snow and ice.

This means that drivers should pay extra attention to the
parts of the car that are affected by changes in conditions.  Things such as wiper blades, coolant/antifreeze, heater and defrost operation, and perhaps tire-tread depth
and rubber conditions, should be inspected before the winter is upon us.

Any or all of these parts or systems can wreak havoc on yourwallet or your family’s safety if they fail at the wrong time.  Believe it or not, as the operator of a motor vehicle, it is possible to almost ensure that your safety and well-being are guaranteed with proactive maintenance. By simply having the various systems and parts of your vehicle inspected proactively, you are helping to keep repairs as well as the chance of an
accident to a minimum.

A lot of folks balk at spending money to do things to their cars when everything appears to be working just fine.  But, that it the secret to automobile longevity and cost minimization. If you do routine and preventative maintenance on a regular basis, chances are you won’t have big repair bills.  Believe itor not, it is cheaper for you to have preventative maintenance performedconsistently than to fix or repair things as they break. And, as your mechanical shop, I can assure you that we prefer it that way.  We get no pleasure in handling you a large repair bill instead of a small maintenance bill.  You will feel better because you are making the choice on how and when to perform maintenance. Versus your car breaking down when, where and how it wants to. And the cost being whatever they turn out to be.

So the message here is to take control of the situation so
the situation (expensive car repair) does not take control of your wallet.  October is National Car Care Month.  Sturken Auto is offering free preventative
maintenance inspections all month. Please give us a call to get your vehicles inspected soon.
