Lowering Your Auto Repair Costs
The number one question we get is how come the auto repairs cost so much?
So here are the answers: There are a number of things that go into the cost of a repair. It takes us time to troubleshoot the issue, research the parts, order the parts, wait to receive or go get the parts, install the parts, quality check the vehicle before getting it back to you.
The good news is that there are some things that you can do to lower the costs for your automobiles! The first and foremost thing is the regularly scheduled maintenance that the manufacturer recommends. Do you know that we at Pro Tech offer these same services that the dealer charges you an arm and leg for? If you follow those recommended services we will ensure that your vehicle is getting the attention that it needs. Your car takes car of you, you should take care of it. The small things go a long way, Simple oil and filter changes keep your engine in tip top shape. A small engine tune-up will make sure you make it to your next destination, as well as improving fuel mileage. Checking the brakes and tires at regular intervals will help keep you and your passengers safe.
The next easiest thing to do is bring your car to Pro Tech Automobile of Aurora as soon as you detect there is an issue with your car.
Do you realize that many people wait when they hear something, or feel something a little out of the ordinary. They think to themselves, I am sure it will be okay, maybe it will run better when it warms up. I must be imagining that I am hearing a weird noise every time I apply the brakes.
The quicker you bring your vehicle in the better chance of catching the problem early, and before it escalates into a bigger problem. For example lets say you hear your brakes squeal when you apply the brakes. If you bring it in, chances are it is just a worn pad/shoe. But if you continue to drive your vehicle, that noise will continue to get worse and worse as the pad/shoe continues to wear, soon it starts to damage the rotor/drum and instead of needing a set of pads/shoes. You now need pads/shoes, drums/rotors, hardware, and whatever else the continuous abuse did to your vehicle!
So take care of your care with regular scheduled maintenance, and by bringing it in for a quick checkup at the first sign of trouble. You will be surprised at how affordable car care can be.
