Regular preventative maintenance is essential to keep your vehicle running smoothly and efficiently. That’s why, at A&E Automotive Solutions, we provide various preventative maintenance services to keep your vehicle in top condition.

Your vehicle is most likely the second most expensive asset you’ll buy. With the cost of new vehicles, you probably want to ensure your vehicle lasts for a long time. You can do that by doing the necessary maintenance services at the proper intervals.

At A&E Automotive Solutions, we understand the importance of preventative maintenance. It can not only improve the lifespan of your car but also save you money in the long run by avoiding costly repairs.

What is Preventative Maintenance?

The terms “preventative maintenance” and “factory-recommended maintenance” are somewhat similar but different. 

Factory-recommended maintenance refers to scheduled services recommended by your vehicle’s manufacturer. It can include routine tasks (like oil changes and brake inspections) typically outlined in the owner’s manual in specific intervals, like at 30K, 60K, and 90K miles.

Preventative maintenance is broader. It means performing any services before they become necessary. It may involve a more aggressive maintenance schedule than your vehicle’s manufacturer recommends.

Nevertheless, it doesn’t matter whether we use factory-recommended or preventative maintenance. The important thing is to perform the services necessary to keep your vehicle running smoothly and avoid more significant, costly problems down the road. 

It’s best to consult the trustworthy mechanics at A&E Automotive Solutions to create a maintenance plan that will work for your vehicle. When you come in for maintenance, we do a complimentary inspection to ensure your vehicle is safe and doesn’t have upcoming repairs. Then we check for fluid leaks, inspect your brakes, and perform other essential services. 

Why is Preventative Maintenance Important?

While it takes some effort to always keep your vehicle in proper condition, it’s worth it in more ways than one. 

You’ll be safer on the road with a well-maintained vehicle. For example, as wear-and-tear items (like brakes and suspensions) are replaced before they ultimately break, your vehicle is less likely to break down on the road.

Keeping up with preventative maintenance could save you from larger, more expensive repairs. As an example, take worn brake pads not replaced on time. They can damage rotors and calipers if they get too low. The pad’s backing plate could score the rotors so much that you cannot replace them. They could also cause the calipers to over-extend. 

A bonus of keeping your vehicle in good shape is that you will most likely get more for it when it’s time to trade or sell it. Better fuel efficiency and an extended vehicle lifespan are also benefits.
