There’s a reason why auto service stations have one of the largest numbers of complaints with state attorney generals in every state. Some uphold good business practices and ethics, but most, unfortunately are all about profit and don’t care if they have to lie and cheat to get it. To prove this all one has to do is go to several dealers with the same problem or question. You will get many different answers, price ranges and estimates all for the same problem(s) and almost all recommending unnecessary and unneeded services or repairs.
The TV commercials are all over the networks showing two friends chatting away oblivious to what is happening around them and WHAM another car smashes into the them while air bags are going off with blank looks coming from their faces. The ad’s apparent purpose is to demonstrate how safe this car is with front and side air bags with reinforced doors and multiple safety features where the driver and his passenger are able to walk away from it without an injury. This little 60-second commercial is over, but what happens next in the real world?
Document and write down everything. As well as compensating for lapses in memory, it provides a proper paper trail for a post crisis assessment and can serve as a useful training tool during dispatcher training.
When looking for wheels, it used to take the entire day of going from shop to shop to see what was available. Today, all you need to do is get on the Internet to find the best deals around. Now, instead of wasting a full day, you can have the wheels ordered before the wife has breakfast on the table and still make your 10:00am tee time at the local course.
There are 2 ways of doing this. You could go to your local auto servis and ask them to do it. The drawback of this is the fact that they will charge you around 1000$ for the system and installment, this is not cheap at all and frankly it’s not worth it. The other much cheaper option is top build it yourself. Most people back off at this point because they think it’s hard. Well I’m not going to lie to you, it’s not 1-2-3 easy. But… the high quality guides that are available on the web today, teach you how to do everything step by step with illustrations. These are squarely aimed at car novices and let’s be honest, if I managed to pull it off…you will have no problem.
It is the oil that prevents the engine components from heat and also provides friction necessary for smooth functioning of the engine. Your car is a priced possession and it is second to your home. You use it daily for going to work and also you go on vacation in the car. If it isn’t maintained properly, it can’t support you. If you want to keep it ready to use then you have to take care of it.
The key to keeping your car running for long time is not waiting until there is a problem to get your car serviced. Preventative maintenance can save you time and money now as well as down the road. Timing belts and serpentine belts are all things that need to be checked and replaced regularly. The radiator should be flushed, the power steering should be checked, the antifreeze should be changed seasonally, and the oil needs to be changed every 3,000 miles. A regular service check up will keep your car running strong today and in the future.
