Car Care Tips

At Gateway Auto Clinic in Kettering, we know that the first and most important step toward keeping your car, truck, or SUV reliably on the road, is knowing how to properly care for it. Here’s a few tips on how to keep your vehicle in shape.

Regular maintenance

Regularly scheduled maintenance isn’t particularly exciting and is often overlooked. As long as your car is doing fine, you may feel inclined to avoid the service shop altogether; after all, you’re busy, and your car still runs and drives like it’s supposed to. However, the key to keeping it that way is catching issues before they arise, and being proactive about preventative maintenance. Oil changes, fluid flushes, tune-ups, and replacing things before they break is what defines a vehicle’s reliability, and longevity.

Do the job right

Getting the job done correctly the first time will save you a lot of time and money in the long run. Automobiles are complex, and made of many different components - cutting corners simply doesn’t work. Your car is a huge investment, and a necessary part of your daily life. Be sure the care you are giving it is above and beyond, and you’ll see the results of a job well done.

Correct issues immediately

While preventative maintenance goes a long way, sometimes things just break. When a part fails, it’s easy to think “well it’s already broken, it won’t get any worse.” However, nearly every component on a car either affects or is affected by other parts in the system. When you neglect correcting a single issue, it compounds into more and more issues, turning what was once a simple fix into an expensive and time-consuming process. For example, a failing CV axle will last a long time; long enough to destroy wheel bearings, wear out tires, cause transmission damage, and more. Save yourself the trouble and have issues taken care of as soon as possible.
