Routine Auto Care Drives Home Savings

Routine Auto Care Drives Home Savings


Whether changing the oil, replacing the wiper blades or checking the tires, finding the time to perform simple preventative vehicle maintenance is money in the bank, says the non-profit Car Care Council.

According to research conducted by IMR Inc., one out of three consumers that put off routine vehicle maintenance do so because they cannot find a convenient time. In addition, millennials and those who own older vehicles are more likely to delay routine maintenance.

"There is an old adage that if you take care of your car, your car will take care of you," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "Making time to perform routine auto care not only ensures a safer, more dependable vehicle, but car owners can preserve the trade-in value and save money by addressing small issues before they become more complicated, expensive repairs."

The most common maintenance procedures to keep a car operating safely and reliably while maintaining its long-term value involve checking the oil, filters and fluids, the belts and hoses, brakes, tires and air conditioning. The Car Care Council also recommends an annual tune-up and wheel alignment.

To make it easier for car owners to remember to include auto care in their busy schedules, the Car Care Council offers a free custom service schedule and email reminder service. This simple-to-use online resource can be personalized to help make auto care more convenient and economical.

In addition, the council's popular Car Care Guide for motorists and is available at no charge, electronically or by printed copy, in English and Spanish. The guide covers major services, component groups within the vehicle, service interval recommendations and much more.

My truck suffered a seal failure on my way to Pendleton and I was in town for only one weekday so I had to get it fixed in one day. I won the no wait lottery and Zeiglers was able to repair two seals on my truck on a Friday with no appointment. I am very pleased with the service I received and the cost was reasonable.

Absolutely 5 stars. I have been going to these guys for close to 15 years with 5 different vehicles, and have yet to have a misdiagnosis or be overcharged, and Kris is just a good, solid human being. I was nervous about buying a car brand where the nearest dealer was over an hour away, but I have learned to be confident in Ziegler's abilities to handle what I throw at them.

Chris worked overtime on my transmission to get it up to speed after putting in a rebuilt transmission. I appreciate the honesty and willingness to go the extra mile to get it taken care of. I would not hesitate to take my car there again.
