Putting Off Car Care? Stop Stalling

Overdue for an oil change or a brake inspection? Whatever the service, by postponing necessary maintenance, you may be causing extensive damage to your vehicle and increasing the chance of a breakdown. With National Car Care Month in April upon us, the non-profit Car Care Council suggests you stop stalling and get your vehicle serviced today.

"Many people don't realize the consequences of putting off needed vehicle maintenance. Not only can neglecting vehicle service cause safety issues if ignored, but it can lead to costly repairs down the road," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "With nearly 80 percent of vehicles needing service, a new part and/or repair, chances are your vehicle could use some extra attention."

The Car Care Council recommends following a vehicle service schedule, keeping a free copy of the council's Car Care Guide in the glovebox and performing the most common routine maintenance procedures to keep your vehicle performing at its best.

  • Check all fluids, including engine oil, power steering, brake and transmission as well as windshield washer solvent and antifreeze/coolant.
  • Check the brake system annually and have the brake linings, rotors and drums inspected at each oil change.
  • Check the tires, including tire pressure and tread. Uneven wear indicates a need for wheel alignment. Tires should also be checked for bulges and bald spots.
  • Check the hoses and belts to make sure they are not cracked, brittle, frayed, loose or showing signs of excessive wear.
  • Check the heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) system as proper heating and cooling performance is critical for interior comfort and safety reasons, such as defrosting.
  • Check the wipers and lighting so that you can see and be seen. Check that all interior and exterior lighting is working properly and replace worn wiper blades so you can see clearly when driving during precipitation.

"Be sure to fully inspect your vehicle annually, including performing a tune-up and wheel alignment," said White. "If you suspect there is a problem, don't stall and address it quickly before minor repairs become more complicated, expensive repairs."

    Been going to Westgate for over a year now and can't be more pleased. Every repair bill you receive is itemized so you can see how much each part/service was and how much labor was charged. Dan has routinely demonstrated his honest business practices when diagnosing and repairing our vehicles. He's always communicated to me effectively and respectfully. I know when I take my car here I can trust that I will be receiving high quality repairs and that I will never be taken advantage of.

    I suddenly had a flat tire and pulled into Westgate High Tech Auto. They were so friendly and were able to pull my vehicle in right away. They fixed/plugged the hole in the tire quickly and I was able to make it to my meeting. This is a family owned and operated business and it was refreshing to be treated so well!
