Be Smart About Auto Repair Costs!

Repair Costs

Auto repair costs can vary year to year depending on your type of vehicle make or model and your vehicle mileage. Older vehicles will tend to need more maintenance than late model cars. There is no doubt that cost of auto repair ownership is inevitable and increasing.

"Keep repair costs down by maintaining your vehicle at the right intervals"

To truly keep repair costs down is to maintain your vehicle at the recommended intervals. This will keep your maintenance and repair costs down as well as prevent any breakdowns down the road which is accompanied by other costs like lost time from work, stress, and towing or road side assistance costs.

How do you keep maintenance in check? First, check your mileage...service intervals are mileage based there are 30k, 60k, 90k, 100k and so on services...Also know when is the correct interval to perform Oil Change Services. 3,000 mile oil change is from the past, make sure to follow manufacturer recommended intervals and type of oil.

Car maintenance and repairs are usually not part of the budget, that why it hurts to part with your money every time something needs repairs with your car.

#1 Tip to counter this is include the probable cost into your budget...for example...every month you can put aside $50 for car related expenses. That is $600 a year that can go towards your repairs and service. and if your car is well maintained and all you have to do is oil change or wiper blades that year then the rest is savings for the following year! or go to town and treat yourself (still recommend saving it though, hehe)

#2 Tip Open a dedicated credit card and take advantage of 6 - 12 months Interest Free financing to use mainly for auto related services. To learn more Click Here
