Why Vehicle Maintenance Matters | Hartford, CT | Capitol Transmission

The Perks of Preventative Maintenance

The Perks of Preventative Maintenance

Paying for Auto Repairs

We all have standing appointments that happen regularly throughout our lives: haircuts, doctor’s check-ups, and performance reviews – just to name a few. And we’ve all heard that vehicle maintenance should be given as much importance as these other obligations. Your vehicle most likely came with a manufacturer-recommended maintenance schedule as a guide for its essential upkeep. However, the most convincing point for having regular preventative maintenance on your car is the money that you will save in the long run. The monetary savings is second only to the time and effort saved by early detection.

Why it Matters

At Capitol Transmission, services such as oil changes, tire rotations, and wheel alignments give our ASE certified technicians an opportunity to inspect less accessible areas of your vehicle for flaws that aren’t apparent to the naked eye. During tire rotations, technicians check the tread on each tire to make sure it is safe for you and your passengers. While they are flushing the oil from your vehicle, technicians check the entire system for leaks. Early detection means the repairs are often smaller, less developed, and certainly less expensive than if the fault had been left to worsen.

Time is Not Always on Your Side

Time is often a factor when it comes to why people avoid preventative maintenance. When technicians are able to find and repair issues in your vehicle, it means they are preventing bigger problems down the road. Unnoticed flaws could mean you experience engine failure while you are cruising down I-84, and the loss of time when you are suddenly stranded can have a serious cost too. When you make the time to take care of your vehicle, it will continue to get you where you need to go.

Saving money will always be a convincing argument and in the case of preventative mainenance, it is a very real advantage. Since 1934, our technicians have been working to keep the vehicles of our community roads safe.
