Eden Autopro and the Maintenance MindsetJan 22nd, 2017
As responsible Port Moody residents, we generally accept that many things in life require regular maintenance: teeth, clothes, yards and so on, but often don’t apply the idea of maintenance to vehicles.
If you never brush your teeth or go to the dentist, you’ll become painfully aware of your neglect when you get a big cavity. Once the damage is done, we learn our lesson and start to take better care of things.
Unfortunately, drivers too often learn the hard automotive lesson when they bring their vehicle to Eden Autopro on a tow truck. So many times, a little routine maintenance would have prevented a breakdown.
So how do you get into the habit of taking care of your vehicle? It’s so easy to forget; not like cutting the grass when you see it every time you pull in the driveway.
Here’s something that will help: The key to good vehicle maintenance starts with the oil change. Think about it – when you go in for a full-service oil change in Port Moody, your Eden Autopro tech will check all your fluids. If one of them is low, he can look for the reason why. If your serpentine belt is worn, he’ll see it and let you know. Corroded battery cable – they’ve got you covered. And they’ll check to see if your manufacturer has recommended any services at your current odometer reading.
The oil change becomes kind of a focal point, a way to check in to see what needs to be done.
The fact is that vehicle inspection surveys consistently reveal that over 80% of vehicles have one or more unperformed repair or maintenance service. Vehicles are generally very reliable and can take a lot of abuse and neglect – but you can only press your luck so long.
So, when you come into Eden Autopro for an oil change, you get a visual inspection and a reminder for recommended services so you can avoid a total failure. And remember that your Eden Autopro service advisor can help you work out a maintenance and repair plan, prioritizing and scheduling the work to make sure you and your family are safe, and avoid expensive breakdowns.
