Without regular vehicle maintenance, simple issues with your vehicle can go unnoticed and turn into costly expenses. If caught early, malfunctioning components of your car’s system may simply need repairing, but if left untreated it will need to be replaced. Leaving issues unrepaired for too long can damage other components requiring them to be replaced also. Don’t gamble with your vehicles safety; keep your car maintained.
Not maintaining your vehicle will result in reduced gas efficiency, increased hydrocarbon and nitrogen oxide emissions, and wear out of emission system components such as catalytic converters and oxygen sensors.
