THIS IS THE MOST VALUABLE TIP WE CAN GIVE YOU. We tell people every single day that most of the money you have to spend on your car should never surprise you. The overwhelming majority of the time, these are things we can see coming for months, if not longer! 

This is the reason we offer full inspections for your car every time we see it. It’s our standard to be able to go over everything and report back even the smallest details that will need an action plan for the months ahead. Everything’s easier if you can make a plan for it! That’s what Wally’s Precision Auto Care wants to help you do. Don’t let the brakes, maintenance items, or even leaks surprise you. They shouldn’t!

Let’s stop shelling out money to fix something that seems to have broken out of nowhere. Seriously, read these tips and you are already on track to avoid common car expenses!

1.Regular Maintenance: The number one expense that is predictable with your car is maintenance. Many car owners avoid routine maintenance and only take their car to the mechanic when it breaks down. This is a big mistake because regular maintenance is essential in keeping your car healthy and running smoothly. By following  your local mechanic’s recommendations for oil changes, air filter replacements, and tire rotations, you can easily avoid costly future expenses that stem from neglecting your car’s basic needs.

2. Warning Signs: Pay attention to these! It can be easy to ignore warning signs such as strange  noises or vibrations coming from your car’s engine. However, these signs are pointing to a potential issue that can become more severe and expensive to fix if ignored. Pay attention, and  call us at Wally’s Precision Auto Care to let us know what’s going on with that Toyota or Honda of yours. With Lexus’ and Acuras’ too, we are experts in these vehicles and no description of your car’s health concern is foreign to us. Your proactive mindset in taking your car to the mechanic can save you money and also keep you safe on the road.

3. Invest in Quality Parts: When it comes to car expenses, some drivers may opt for cheaper parts to save money. However, investing in quality parts can save you money in the long run. Cheap parts may wear out quickly, which will require more repairs and expenses. On the other hand, investing in good quality parts and opting for original manufacturer parts (OEM) may seem costly at first; however, they are built to last, and you will avoid early maintenance issues. If you’re not sure, give us a call and we can help you out, no problem!

4. Be a cautious driver: Being mindful of how you drive can also help you avoid future expenses. For instance, sudden starts, sudden stops, and fast driving habits can be detrimental to your car’s health. They also lead to excessive wear and tear and can cause damages to various components of your car. Being a cautious driver and driving defensively not only saves you money but also keeps you and other drivers safe on the road.

The price of owning a car should not extend into a lot of unforeseen bills. Stay on top of your car’s health, and remember that by following these simple tips, you are saving yourself money, time, and headaches in the future. 

Here at Wally’s Precision Auto Care, we will set you on the right track for future savings and excellent car health!
