Car Care

If you want your vehicle to serve you well and remain reliable for a long time, you need to invest in preventive maintenance. What is preventive maintenance? It’s like going to your primary physician for your annual health checkups, except with your car you may need to check some things more or less frequently than once a year.

What to Check

As part of the preventive maintenance routine, your Maryland mechanic may suggest to have the following vehicle systems and components inspected and tested at certain intervals. At Hillmuth Auto Care, we call this milestone maintenance:

Checking and fine-tuning or repairing these components before they fail is the key to not only keeping your car in its optimal condition, but also to keeping you and your family safe. Unexpected system failures can be costly and frustrating, but above all they can put your life at risk. Thankfully, you can minimize this risk by being proactive with auto maintenance.

Taking care of your car with preventive maintenance, as well as adjusting your driving habits can also help you save money on gas and get the most MPGs out of your vehicle. Want to learn more? Follow these gas saving tips!

And feel free to get in touch with us for more information or help keeping your vehicle safe and reliable.
