on Vehicle Maintenance
With a sluggish economic recovery and todayís consumers watching their finances carefully,
itís no surprise that the average age of vehicles in the United States is more than 11 years old, according
to automotive research firm R.L. Polk and Co. With motorists holding onto their vehicles longer than ever
before, maintenance takes an even greater importance in keeping roads and people safe.
While itís tempting to avoid car maintenance in tough economic times, it is not a financially sound method
in the long run. You want to manage the big investment youíve made in your vehicle and a well-maintained
vehicle simply lasts longer, retains more of its resale value, pollutes less, and gets better mileage than
one thatís been neglected. Not to mention that itís safer to operate.
Neglect causes components to wear out faster than they would otherwise and can result in minor problems
growing into more expensive repairs. Whether you are a do-it-yourselfer or you take your car to a certified
technician, it is imperative you become familiar with your ownerís manual and follow the service schedules.
