As a car owner, it can be tempting to follow the old saying, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” If everything seems to be running smoothly, or if nothing seems wrong, it’s easy to put off paying for maintenance. However, routine maintenance is the most important responsibility for car owners. The difference between regular maintenance and no maintenance will be thousands of dollars in prevented repairs down the road.
For instance, the most frequent maintenance checkpoint is the necessary oil change at every 7,500 miles or every six months. Oil is the blood of your Ford vehicle. It keeps your engine running smoothly, and fresh oil helps your engine to get the best mileage possible. Thus oil changes help you save on gas, which is another way in which routine maintenance is a money saver.
The same can be said about well-maintained tires. With every oil change, you should have your tires rotated so they will receive even wear. You’ll also want to have the wheels aligned when needed. Finally, when your tires show too much wear and the tread is no longer effective, you’ll want to replace them. Good tires not only increase efficiency, but also ensure safer driving.
