How Missing Out on Regular Auto Maintenance Could Be Putting Your Vehicle—and Your Safety—at Risk

If you really think about it, the vehicles we live and work with every day are a dream come true. We can cover long distances in the blink of an eye, and lug about heavy loads without breaking a sweat. But when those same personal or commercial vehicles break down, the dream-come-true starts to look a little more like a nightmare.

That same convenience that modern automotive technology provides is just as frustrating when things stop working. When your vehicle for your home or business breaks down, you don’t have time to put your life on hold. You need to find the nearest auto mechanic shop, and fast!

But in Performance Auto Center’s 29 years of experience in the auto repair industry, what we’ve noticed is that for many of the most common mechanical problems we see—such as transmission failure or broken brakes—the problem could have been dealt with by scheduling regular auto maintenance.

Rather than waiting for something in your vehicle to go wrong (and given the complex machinery, something will go wrong eventually), why not put a little money down to extend the life and good working condition of your cars and trucks?

Regular auto maintenance means fewer days spent in a panic trying to get a stalled vehicle to start again. And in some cases, poor vehicle maintenance can be more than inconvenient—it’s downright dangerous!

Tire Rotation in Plainfield

In order to make the most of your vehicle's tires, it’s important to have them rotated every 5,000-8,000 miles. The goal is to ensure that your tires wear out in a consistent and uniform way. When you bring your vehicle to Performance Auto Center, we take a close look at the wear patterns on your tires. To the average eye, everything might look okay. Our mechanics will see something different though. They’ll read the subtle signs carved into your tires from miles upon miles of driving. Based on these signs they’ll decide on a rotation pattern that will best serve your vehicle.

Regular tire rotations are an essential part of every vehicle’s maintenance program. Like oil changes, tire rotations should be done on a regular schedule.

Multi-Point Visual Inspection

Our regular service programs include a range of services. Our professional mechanics take every step to ensure that your vehicle is in great condition when it leaves our garage. While our computerized diagnostics are remarkably accurate, we strive to double-check everything we do so that we know it’s been done right. That’s why every auto maintenance check and tune-up include a visual inspection as well as a digital assessment. Because sometimes vehicles have problems that haven’t appeared. We like to catch things before they cause major break-downs and leave you stranded on the outskirts of Plainfield.

Our visual inspection includes things like:

  • Headlights and signal lights
  • Air filters
  • Exhaust
  • Brakes
  • Brake fluid
  • Windshield wiper fluid
  • Windshield wiper blades
  • Battery
  • Drive belt
  • Transmission fluid
  • Transfer fluid
  • Tire pressure
  • Oil
  • Coolant
  • Body damage
  • Chassis and rust check
  • Check engine light

Vehicle Tune-Ups

Properly tuned vehicles are better on gas, drive better, and are easier on the environment. Regular tune-ups at the beginning and the end of the seasons are an important component of vehicle ownership.

To get the best performance out of your vehicle, bring it into Performance Auto Center for a tune-up. As an added service we offer scheduled tune-ups for our Plainfield clients. That way you don’t have to remember to bring it in. Prevent breakdowns before you have a problem!

Belts and Hoses

Healthy belts and hoses are essential to your vehicle’s health. Broken hoses and belts can cause sudden and serious problems while you’re on the road. And because hoses and belts are typically made from materials like rubber (and other compounds), they have a tendency to decay over time.

For example, serpentine belts control a while range of functions such as the alternator, power steering, AC compressor, and water pump. And a blown-out hose could cause your engine to overheat (not to mention a range of other expensive engine problems).

Brake Checks

Brake systems are composed of a range of hydraulic and mechanical parts. Over time these parts can loosen, wear out, and fall out of tune. Regular maintenance is the only way to ensure that your brakes are functioning at an optimal level. After all, they’re kind of important.

If you live in Plainfield, contact Performance Auto Center and set up an appointment for a brake check. Let our experienced mechanics work their magic on your vehicle!
