Can Your Car Last Another Year?Apr 1st, 2018
Have you checked out the price of new vehicles at Lakewood car dealers? Ouch! Add financing and insurance and a new ride may not seem so attractive. A lot of Lakewood, CO, 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 (250,000 kilometers) or more for smart Lakewood drivers.
The old adage: 'a stitch in time saves nine' is really true for Lakewood residents 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 Lakewood drivers have their cooling system service taken care of right on schedule at Pickering's Auto Service Center.
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 Pickering's Auto Service Center is a great way to keep your operating costs down.
Replacing belts and hoses is much cheaper than repairing the damage that can be caused by failure.
