The Importance of Preventive Maintenance for Cars

Did you see that car sitting on the side of the road with its flashers on? It’s probably because the car’s owner did NOT follow the car’s preventive maintenance schedule. Why? Maybe he or she forgot. Or was too busy. Or didn’t have the money. Or just didn’t care.

But preventive maintenance should always be important to every vehicle owner. Here’s why:

According to Toyota, a car has about 30,000 parts, counting every part down to the smallest screw. Chrysler says that its typical car or light truck powered by a traditional internal combustion engine (non-hybrid) has 14,000 moving parts. That’s a lot of moving parts. Be sure to let John’s Auto Care help you adhere to your vehicle’s preventive maintenance schedule. And know that John’s Auto Care is a full-service auto care specialist that can also handle major repairs for your vehicle. Call 916.791.2886 (AUTO) right now for an appointment!

Five reasons to love preventive maintenance:

  1. Your car will last longer
  2. Your car will run smoother
  3. You and your passengers will be safer
  4. Better gas mileage
  5. Fewer unexpected breakdowns
