Many vehicle owners have learned the importance of fuel economy and have downsized into smaller and more fuel-efficient cars as the price of fuel keeps sliding up and down. And it seems like they would rather trade in their older car for a new one rather than take their old one to an auto for regular maintenance items and repairs.

However, as the price of new vehicles keeps going up, it is even more important that vehicle owners understand that visiting their auto center for regularly scheduled maintenance items is a smart choice, diminishing the chances of more costly auto repairs.

Several years ago, Kelton Research published a study that is still true. The study shows that nine-in-ten American vehicle owners think they do everything they should to properly maintain their vehicle. However, the study went on to show that only 41 percent actually follow the manufacturer’s service recommendations. The study further reports that less than one in four (23 percent) of vehicle owners work with a qualified mechanic to develop a maintenance plan for their cars.

Don’t be afraid to visit your auto shop for any needed maintenance and repairs. Help your car last longer by following the advice of your auto center.

This is a common question that many vehicle owners ask. Unless they are experiencing problems, transmission are generally “out of sight, out of mind.” What is the purpose of transmission fluid? Transmission fluid is a lubricant for all of the moving parts inside your transmission. Letting your car run low can cause the transmission to shift improperly—or not at all. It also can harm the internal parts of your transmission because they are not being properly lubricated. Unfortunately, you may not hear any noises or have other clues that your transmission is low on fluid until it's too late.

Do you really need to change transmission fluid?

Are you wondering do you really need to change transmission fluid? Putting off needed fluid change will find you looking for transmission repair down the road.
