April is National Car Care month. What does that mean? Well it is an opportunity for me or any one of my knowledgeable technicians to help educate you on how your car works, what is needed to maintain it, and any other questions you may have.
I truly believe it is not only my job to greet each customer, call and inform the customer what the car needs, but most importantly, to educate you about your vehicle so that you can make an informed decision about your car. I take as much time as necessary to discuss your vehicle and its needs with a customer so that they are comfortable with the decision they are making.
Sometimes when a major repair is needed, it becomes a question of is the car worth it? There have been times when unfortunately the answer is no.
Every car is unique just as every driver is unique. If you are a regular customer, I review the history on your car even before work is performed, to assure that the service you receive is what the car actually needs.
Following your vehicles scheduled maintenance goes a long way to a happy car in the long run. While some people may view ignoring these services as saving money...well that may be true today, but it always costs more in the long run. Would you skip an oil change when you know it could damage your engine? Then why would you skip on your transmission fluid or brake fluid? I see this routinely and it bothers me to think that they would rather save the money today to buy a transmission tomorrow, or have the brakes fail.
Ask me and I will tell you the truth about your car. Of course we are in business to make money, but we are also here to make longtime customers and develop relationships with you and your car.
During April stop in to have a free 32 point check. I will personally take the time to talk to you about the results of that check. If your car does need repairs or maintenance, I will prioritize those needs and help get you back on track so that you and your family are safe and can have a car that will last a long time.
