What is Preventive Maintenance?
When you hear the words ‘preventive maintenance’, what comes to mind? For most mechanics and shop owners, it brings to mind a general practitioner’s office.
In a GP’s office, the doctor is focused on keeping your health to the point where you don’t need a surgeon. Surgery is traumatic and costly, and he wants to spare you that by advising you on keeping your health in check. Eventually, as you age, you will need to see specialists, to cover the buildup of bad things in the body. If you skip going to the doctor, you will likely suffer and deal with costly bills as surgery is required to fix your body– which could have been prevented by following a doctor’s advice all along.
Debunking the Myth of Spend Now, Spend Later
This is exactly what preventive maintenance does for your car. No matter what you do, time and tide will wear your car down. You can either stay on top of it with a small investment in regular visits to your shop, or wait until something breaks and doesn’t work right. But waiting means ignoring mounting damage to your car’s crucial systems. That can mean the difference between tightening a transmission gear in May and replacing the entire transmission in November. Or doing a brake fluid exchange at 60,000 miles and having to replace most of the brake system later.
Preventive Maintenance saves money, saves time, and saves your car. It’s the easiest decision to make, once you know the facts.
