Scheduled auto maintenance helps minimize the need for more costly and extensive repairs and reduces the risk of dangerous breakdowns. Your owner's manual for your car includes a maintenance schedule set by the manufacturer for your specific make and model. You should reference your owner’s manual for maintenance specifications and answers to any questions you may have regarding proper care of your car.
Intervals for scheduled auto maintenance can vary depending on the age of the component, the climate conditions the vehicle is driven in, the quality of the parts, and your driving patterns. Cars driven in rougher conditions, in harsh climates, or with excessive tow loads or other special considerations may benefit from more frequent service intervals. Talk with the knowledgeable auto care professionals at Burke Centre Automotive about your driving profile, any changes in your vehicle performance, and what scheduled auto maintenance service would best benefit the long, safe life of your car.
With computerized technologies, improved fuel efficiency, and finely-engineered mechanical components, newer vehicles are designed with sensors and monitoring systems to alert you to any developing problems.
A recent survey by the Car Care Council revealed 89 percent of vehicles inspected needed auto service or repair. The auto maintenance statistics included one in four cars with low or dirty oil, 18 percent needing belt replacement, and 16 percent requiring new windshield wipers.
Burke Centre Automotive can design a computerized maintenance schedule with automatically generated preventive auto maintenance reminders to help you track the service history and costs for your basic car care. This is important since each automaker warrants their vehicles against defects during a specified time or mileage IF you follow the manufacturer's factory scheduled maintenance.
