Don't forget the maintenance! It's the little things that count, and checking a few of these little things off your list will put you ahead of the game, and ease the pain in your wallet. Most maintenance checks only take a minute, and most maintenance tasks can be tackled in an afternoon. If you don't maintain your car, you'll pay the price down the road.

Your vehicle manufacturer came up with a maintenance schedule and service intervals that are specific to your car or truck, but check out our easy to follow regular maintenance checklists to keep up with your car's needs.

We understand routine vehicle maintenance can be a difficult task to keep up with. However, there can be serious implications of not staying up to date on your car’s maintenance schedule.

The Basics

  • Air filter; Antifreeze; Battery; Belts; Brakes; Engine Oil; Exhaust; Hoses; Lights; Oil Filter; Power steering fluid, Shock absorbers; Tires; Transmission Fluid; Washer fluid; Wiper blades

The best way to ensure each maintenance item of your car is in order is to consult your owner’s manual or take your vehicle to J&L Automotive and get it inspected. Getting a thorough inspection is the best route to ensure you do not miss anything.

Another way to keep you car well-maintained is to wash it frequently. Regular washing and waxing helps maintain your car’s value as well as appearance. Vehicles with oxidized paint or a rusty body cannot be economically restored.

Consequences of Procrastinating

Failing to take care of your vehicle by having it regularly maintained can have negative effects.

    • High expenses – A reason many people use for not keeping their car maintained is cost. Unfortunately, regular maintenance left uncompleted can lead to much higher expenses down the road.
    • Accidents – Sometimes your car is trying to tell you something. Things such as squeaky brakes left untreated can lead to much worse problems such as brake failure that can lead to serious accidents.
    • Severe damage – As you can expect, leaving little problems unrepaired can lead to increased damage to your vehicle. A little problem is much easier to remedy than trying to undo severe damage.

Ways to save

There are a few ways you can help yourself and save a few dollars while still keeping your car’s maintenance up to date.

      • Proactive inspection - Using your owner’s manual as a guide, always follow the recommended maintenance schedule of your car. Check fluid levels and inspect components inside and outside of your car regularly.
      • Trust – Find a reputable, honest auto service facility you can trust.

Those who treat their vehicles well and commit to routine maintenance end up saving money in addition to enjoying their car for much longer.
