Putting Off Car Care? Stop Stalling

Overdue for an oil change or a brake inspection? Whatever the service, by postponing necessary maintenance, you may be causing extensive damage to your vehicle and increasing the chance of a breakdown. With National Car Care Month in April upon us, the non-profit Car Care Council suggests you stop stalling and get your vehicle serviced today.

"Many people don't realize the consequences of putting off needed vehicle maintenance. Not only can neglecting vehicle service cause safety issues if ignored, but it can lead to costly repairs down the road," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "With nearly 80 percent of vehicles needing service, a new part and/or repair, chances are your vehicle could use some extra attention."

The Car Care Council recommends following a vehicle service schedule, keeping a free copy of the council's Car Care Guide in the glovebox and performing the most common routine maintenance procedures to keep your vehicle performing at its best.

  • Check all fluids, including engine oil, power steering, brake and transmission as well as windshield washer solvent and antifreeze/coolant.
  • Check the brake system annually and have the brake linings, rotors and drums inspected at each oil change.
  • Check the tires, including tire pressure and tread. Uneven wear indicates a need for wheel alignment. Tires should also be checked for bulges and bald spots.
  • Check the hoses and belts to make sure they are not cracked, brittle, frayed, loose or showing signs of excessive wear.
  • Check the heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) system as proper heating and cooling performance is critical for interior comfort and safety reasons, such as defrosting.
  • Check the wipers and lighting so that you can see and be seen. Check that all interior and exterior lighting is working properly and replace worn wiper blades so you can see clearly when driving during precipitation.

"Be sure to fully inspect your vehicle annually, including performing a tune-up and wheel alignment," said White. "If you suspect there is a problem, don't stall and address it quickly before minor repairs become more complicated, expensive repairs."

    Had a maintenance light come on, the employee that helped me was friendly, checked on my car in the parking lot free of charge. It was easy and simple.

    I came here in a bit of a situation. My radiator hose broke apart as I was driving down the interstate. First, I took my car to Firestone and found they were charging ridiculous prices to fix this issue. I then brought my car here and Steven was extremely helpful and got my car in and out In a great amount of time and came in about $100 cheaper than Firestone. Would definitely recommend for anybody in a situation like I was!

    Best prices in the area and excellent, cheerful, FAST service. The battery and alternator in my 2007 Ford Focus died while I was traveling between Alabama and North Carolina. I sat at a coffee shop and did extensive research on the best price for a mechanic all up and down the highway between Ooltewah and Chattanooga. I must have called 15 places. Patrick at Maxi gave me the best price, by a long shot. Furthermore, he and his team squeezed me in at the end of the day on a Friday so that I could get on the road. I was blown away by the excellent pricing and superior service. If you're looking for a fairly-priced, high quality mechanic in this area, this is it.
