Quality surveys report fewer problems with new Denver cars than ever before. So does that mean that modern vehicles have become maintenance free? Not really. Back when cars spent more time in Denver repair shops, drivers were more mindful of routine service. Now, it is much easier to put it off.
Take tune-ups for example. In the days of mechanical ignition system, an engine needed to be tuned-up every couple of years. If your engine was out of tune, you knew it. It ran poorly and got bad gas mileage driving on Colorado streets and highways. Now, the ignition system is electronic and controlled by the engine management computer. Spark plugs rarely get extremely dirty and will last for as much as a 100,000 miles. So car tune-ups used to force you in for service and while you were there you just took care of whatever else was on the list.
So what is the benefit to keeping up with factory scheduled maintenance at Express Car Care? Well, your vehicle will perform better and return better fuel economy. Those benefits pay for the service as you go along. the big plus is that major repairs – and the associated breakdowns – are prevented. And these aren’t just repairs that are a long way off. Modern engines are far more sophisticated and have many parts that are in critical need of lubrication. Missing just one oil change at Express Car Care can allow oil sludge to start forming. Sludge clogs small engine passages, robbing car parts of the lubrication they need. An expensive failure could easily occur with two or three years.
Taking care of the little things at Express Car Care prevents big problems with your vehicle later. No Denver motorist wants to be stranded by a breakdown. Your car still needs to be taken care of – it’s just that some of those points of care have changed with automotive advancements. The need for proper maintenance at Express Car Care in Denver did not go away.
