Preventative Car Maintenance

Regular preventive maintenance is probably the most important single thing you can do as a car owner to keep your ride happy and save money on repairs in the future. Ignoring preventative maintenance can create a love hate relationship between you and your car. Anyone who has ever owned a car or worked on a car will tell you not to ignore preventative maintenance. Even covering the basics like oil changes, tire rotations, checking your tire pressure, and following through with timed mileage services at 30,000, 60,000, and 90,000 miles will save you a lot of headaches and a lot of money.

You get regular checkups with the doctor to make sure everything is in working order, remember your vehicle needs the same type of service from a professional at Sharp Automotive Group. Doctors keep you healthy and give you—and the experts at Sharp Automotive Group—a chance to catch anything serious before it becomes a major problem. With your car, that can save you thousands.

Auto technicians say the key to keeping vehicles running well-today and down the road-is routine maintenance. Yet many drivers tend to stall when it comes to keeping up with some everyday auto-basics.

A recent survey by the Car Care Council found:

22 percent of cars had low or dirty engine oil.
20 percent had low or contaminated brake fluid.
17 percent had dirty air filters.
16 percent had inadequate cooling protection or low coolant levels.
15 percent had inadequate or contaminated power steering fluid.
12 percent needed new belts

Most of the checks and services described here can be done at little or no cost. Best of all, they are quick and easy to do. Learn more about your car’s systems in our vehicle systems overview.
