Benefits of Performing General Maintenance

While hundreds of thousands of people are on the road every day, not everyone is aware that they should be performing general preventive maintenance on their cars to keep them running smoothly. Many people can be intimidated from doing maintenance, and this is mostly due to having little knowledge about the benefits. Others lack the resources, or even lack the time to perform maintenance - but preventive maintenance is absolutely crucial and will save money in the long run, should a larger problem occur.


  • Maintain vehicle “health” - a poorly cared for vehicle will eventually become “unhealthy,” to the point of breaking down, or ill-functioning
  • Lengthen lifespan of your vehicle
  • Increase selling price - If you decide to sell the vehicle, a well-maintained vehicle looks much more attractive on the market
  • Saves money - By performing maintenance, you can avoid pricey repairs on preventable problems.
  • Saves Gas - Frequent or routine oil changes help your vehicle use fuel more efficiently.
  • Overall safety and functionality - A well-maintained vehicle has less chance of breakage and malfunction.
