First of all, if you have a new vehicle, you'll save your factory warranty.  Should a warranty issue arise, we can provide y ou with a complete maintenance history.  This is important, as it will prove that you have maintained your vehicle during the warranty period so that your vehicle dealer can process your warranty claim.

An example of how much you could save by having preventive maintenance performed can be well illustrated when you replace wrn brake pads or shoes prior to failure.  If you didn't change your brake pads or shoes when recommended, then the pads or shoes would continue to wear and would therefore wear to the point that no "wearable" material would remain.  This would mean that the metal on the brake pad or shoe would then touch the metal of your brake rotor or drum.  This would cause excessive noise, as well as extremem damage to these brake components, requiring them to be replaced.  While the cost of these components obviously will vary depending on each vehicle and how it's used, the reality is that many of these components cost more than replacing just the brake pads.

So, making sure that preventive maintenance is performed can save you quite a lot of money during the life of your vehicle ownership.
