What Happens When Routine Services Are Neglected?

Routine services are routine for a good reason. Schedule them with us here so we can be sure that your vehicle stays in the best shape. Here’s a look into what happens when routine services aren’t performed, from The Brake Shop in Mesa, AZ.

They Pile Up - It’s easy to skip a service interval. Everything is fine, so you figure you’ll just get it with the next item that needs service. The problem arises when you wait too long, or let maintenance items stack up. First, it becomes hard to keep track of what you have and haven’t done, and what needs immediate attention. To further the issue, a few in and out jobs can turn into hundreds of dollars and days of downtime without a vehicle. By keeping up with regular maintenance, you always know exactly where you stand, and you won’t be without transportation.

Behind the Scenes - The damage done by skipping a coolant or transmission flush, an oil change, or any other maintenance item is difficult to get your mind around sometimes. Everything seems fine until it isn’t, but that’s because miles and miles of excessive wear that you can’t see or feel result in a dramatic shortening of a vehicle’s lifespan. It’s kind of like eating healthy - the results are hard to see at first but make a huge difference over time.

Everything Breaks Eventually - Components like timing belts, tires, and filters all have a shelf life. The reason these items are part of regular maintenance is that there’s a well-researched limit to how long they should last. If that limit is pushed, something can suddenly break, leaving you stranded or causing irreversible damage to your vehicle. No matter how well made a part is or how long it lasts, everything breaks eventually - and you want to be sure and catch it before that happens. Regular maintenance can seem tedious, or even pointless at times, but there is a reason. A lot of research and engineering goes into when an item on your car, truck, or SUV should be serviced. Plus, the warranty is often only good if these items are maintained because the manufacturer knows what needs to happen and when to ensure a vehicle stays reliable.
