5 Reasons To Keep Your Car Well-Maintained


Thanks for visiting the Al’s D & I Repair auto care blog. Today’s post lists 5 important reasons Rapid City car owners should follow recommended maintenance schedules.

1. Be Safe
A well-maintained car doesn’t put you and your passengers at unnecessary risk. Think brakes, headlamps, tires.

2. Get Better Fuel Economy
Regular maintenance is an investment in optimum fuel economy. Inadequate tire pressure, a dirty fuel system, and a clogged air filter are just a few things that reduce gas mileage.

3. Preserve Resale Value
How many Rapid City used car buyers will pay full blue book for a car with a filthy engine, clogged filters and bald tires?

4. Don’t Void Your Warranty
Your warranty claims may be denied if your service history doesn’t fulfill the minimum requirements recommended by the auto maker.

5. Save Money

Regular maintenance prevents catastrophic, expensive repairs.

Here are some Al’s D & I Repair tips to help you remember the main items:

First: Fluids. Oil, transmission fluid, coolant, power steering fluid, brake fluid, differential fluid, etc. We can take care of all of these for you at Al’s D & I Repair in Rapid City.

Then think Tires. Air, rotation, balancing, and alignment. And while you’re thinking tires, think brakes and shock absorbers.

Air and Fuel. Air filter replacement, fuel filters and Al’s D & I Repair fuel system cleaning.

This doesn’t cover everything, but your Al’s D & I Repair service professional will help you with the rest.
