Can Your Car Last Another Year?

Have you checked out the price of new vehicles at Redmond car dealers? Ouch! Add financing and insurance and – well a new ride may not seem so attractive. A lot of Redmond, Oregon folks are hoping to make their cars last a lot longer.

Fortunately, with the current state of automotive engineering and manufacturing, there’s no reason a modern vehicle can’t be made to last for a 150,000 miles or more for smart Redmond car owners.

The old adage: ‘a stitch in time saves nine’ is really true for Redmond auto owners when it comes to car maintenance. A great example is coolant service.

Over time, coolant becomes corrosive and actually starts to damage your radiator and other parts. Smart Redmond drivers have their cooling system service taken care of right on schedule.

Ditto for your power steering system, brake fluid, air conditioning system, differential and transmission. Of course, oil changes should be done right on schedule to avoid the build-up of harmful oil sludge.

Don’t let your brake pads go too long before they are worn to the point that your rotors are at risk. Preventative auto maintenance at Marshalls Automotive is a great way to keep your operating costs down in Redmond.

Replacing belts and hoses is much cheaper than repairing the pricey damage that can be caused by failure.
