The Importance of North Chesterfield Drivers Following Service Intervals

Posted October 3, 2021 11:39 AM

Today in our 804 Auto Repair blog, we're going to talk about following recommended service intervals. Your vehicle isn't the only aspect of your life in North Chesterfield with recommended intervals: Let's start with twice yearly dental check-ups and regular physical exams. How about laundry, watering the lawn and paying the bills?

Now, what would happen if you didn't follow these intervals? Well, you'd get more cavities. You may not discover health conditions that could be more effectively treated with early detection. And you'd have to wear dirty clothes, be embarrassed by your brown lawn and have your utilities shut off.

Clearly, there are some things in life that we have to take care of regularly. If we don't, there are negative consequences. Our quality of life in North Chesterfield takes a hit and it inevitably costs more money.

So why is it so hard to remember to follow regular preventive maintenance on our vehicles? Probably a couple of reasons. One is that automotive maintenance items just don't seem that urgent. All our North Chesterfield neighbors can see our dead lawn, but no one knows how dirty our transmission fluid is. It's easy to put off. The other reason is that we're just not as familiar with automotive maintenance, so it's a bit intimidating.

From a practical standpoint, people in North Chesterfield don't need to memorize their vehicle owner's manuals. You can let your 804 Auto Repair advisor remind you of the guidelines established by the vehicle manufacturer; he has checklists of what the manufacturer recommends and can find potential problems when he inspects your vehicle. You really can rely on 804 Auto Repair professionals to help you make good automotive decisions.

For North Chesterfield drivers who want to be more proactive with their vehicle care, here are some simple ways for you to remember what has a maintenance interval.

First: Fluids. If it's liquid, it's got a replacement schedule. Oil, transmission fluid, coolant, power steering fluid, brake fluid, differential fluid, etc.

Then think tires. They need air, rotation, balancing and alignment. And while you're thinking tires, don't forget brakes and shock absorbers.

And what makes your vehicle go? Air and fuel. Air filter replacement, fuel filters and fuel system cleaning. Of course there are more items, but if North Chesterfield car owners remember to take their vehicle in to 804 Auto Repair for these things, their service advisor will help them with the rest.

And if you don't follow recommended service intervals? You get lousy fuel economy, your vehicle doesn't run as well, your safety is compromised and you'll spend more money in the long run. So it's the same as everything else: The quality of your motoring life takes a hit and it ends up costing you more.

Reason enough for me to follow recommended service intervals.

Testimonials

, 10/12/2021
We chose this shop - not knowing anything about them - to have a used vehicle we were thinking of purchasing, checked over. We asked if we could have it done quickly, and they got it right into the shop when it was brought to them by the dealer, which we really appreciated. The best thing, though, was later that day we needed to have pedal extenders installed for our 4’8” granddaughter to be able to drive comfortably and, more importantly, safely. The dealership couldn’t do it, another shop specializing in disabilities couldn’t do it for 3 weeks, but 804 said they could do it! While waiting for the job to be completed I had a chance to chat with Eric, the man at the front desk in the office, who told me their story. It was clear these men had excellent mechanical backgrounds, good ethics, and really cared about their customers. They will be getting our business for all of our family vehicles from now on. I’m so glad we found them! The pedal extenders were installed perfectly, and quickly, and the charge was much less than we expected. We are super pleased!
