In the current economic climate, more and more people are neglecting their car servicing. This is understandable given that many families’ budgets are under great deal of pressure. However not getting your car serviced is in fact a false economy. There are several reasons for this
Why Neglecting Car Servicing is a False Economy
The first reason is a car which is not serviced to the manufacturer’s specifications will not run as efficiently. Slowly but surely the components will wear. In most cases, this means that your vehicle will end up doing less to the gallon and using more oil.
In addition, when it comes time to sell your car you will have difficulty in doing so. A car with a full service history will sell more quickly and will usually sell for a better price.
During car servicing other mechanical problems can easily be picked up by the mechanic. This enables you to get things repaired whilst they are still small problems. In many cases, leaving small car issues until they become big issues is a false economy.
Regular car servicing is also important if you want to ensure that your family are safe. A service includes checking safety related components such as brakes and can save you from having a serious accident.
