Do you Understand "Auto"? How to Translate What Your Car is Telling You

77_percent_of_cars_need_serviceIgnoring the warnings your car sends out could leave you stranded on the side of the road or with a costly repair bill. According to information released by State Farm Insurance, 77 % of the cars on the road currently need service. And ignoring a small service can lead to a more expensive fix later. 

"The closer attention you pay to your vehicle, the more likely you are to detect small problems before they become bigger, more expensive problems," says Tony Molla, vice president of communications for the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE). 

How do you know what kind of service your car needs?

While we always recommend following your owner's manual to determine the best service intervals for regular preventive maintenance, learning to read the signs your car is sending you can let you know when you need to see a technician for a check of something out of the ordinary. For anything that you don't understand or aren't sure of, give us a call as we have the answer!
