Let’s be honest: Most people skip the annual tune-up for their vehicles because they don’t want to spend the money or take the time. The rest of us just get busy and forget. However, at Joe’s Service Department, our mechanics want to share a few reasons why you might want to make your annual tune-up a priority.
1. Get some preventative medicine.
Your annual tune-up is considered preventative car maintenance. You’re taking care of several “small things” once a year in order to avoid bigger repairs in the future. In fact, your tune-up may be your best defense again larger car issues like engine or brake repair.
2. Keep tabs on your car.
Many people don’t pay attention to what’s happening with their cars until something goes wrong. Instead of waiting for the check engine light to turn on or things to start breaking down, arm yourself with information about your car so you can know what condition it’s in.
3. Anticipate future repairs.
A tune-up helps you not only put off large repairs, but it can also help you know what might be coming. For example, our auto mechanics may be able to give you a head’s up on whether you might need to get new brakes or replace your tires. That way, you can save your money and be ready to make the repair when the time comes—thus saving you much stress down the road.
4. Make your car last longer.
Most mechanics will tell you that the best way to keep your car running longer is to stay up to date on car maintenance. So don’t skip the tune-up just to save a little time or money because you would definitely be doing yourself a disservice in the long run.
