Car Maintenance Schedule
Organizing your Car Maintenance keeps small issues from ballooning into large, expensive ones. Car owners biggest mistake is forgetting that they are “people” too. Meaning that they need a lot of care if they are going to be effective and “responsible”. The best way to have a “responsible” car is to have a maintenance calendar for the auto parts that most frequently need replacing. (Note that the prices and the time frames shown can vary). For the estimated total cost with labor included, which can change depending on your car’s make and model as well as your location, come down to Sunshine Auto Repair and let the experts tell you your options and/or point you in the right direction.
Always remember to consult your owner’s manual, which should have specific guidelines for your vehicle. Also, it’s always an excellent idea that if you are going to try and do the service yourself it’s best to have the right tool for the job. Most of you probably know what I’m talking about. No butter knives or monkey wrenches please; out of respect for your car in your significant other.
