It’s summer and time for long weekends and road trips. It’s no time to cut corners with your Kanata car service as the last thing you need to be is stranded in one of the many areas with no phone service. So either buy a satellite phone or get your car into a Kanata garage like G&I.
Consider servicing costs for your car just a small investment to head off major and costly visits to a Kanata car repair garage. Coming up with the money to service your car is a lot more affordable than a major breakdown. I guess the question is… how much are you willing to gamble that neglecting your car won’t bite you in the wallet down the road? Relatively minor incremental preventative investments paid along the way, your vehicle will keep running well without costing you any extraneous or unnecessary expenditure. If you pay attention, you can be sure that the money you do invest in your car is well spent.
The good news is today’s cars are made better and are more durable than they’ve ever been. Use both a Kanata mechanic and your car’s owner’s manual guide you in terms of needed maintenance. It’s not a well kept secret that dealerships will try to upsell customers on expensive and extensive service packages that benefit the dealer, not necessarily you as the driver. While it is solid advice that regular oil changes and tire rotations are worthwhile to increase fuel efficiency, safety and gas tank range, dealers are typically on the aggressive side when it comes to frequency of service needed.
Another thing to be aware of is the computer diagnostics run on your car – which are also very aggressive in getting items fixed. Find a Kanata car mechanic you trust, check the manual, and make a decision that is right for you. Never get caught in the “If it was my car” trap – it isn’t theirs, it is yours – do the right things and it will be for years to come!
