Here in Fullerton we see plenty of older vehicles on the road. Some are better looking than others but the good news it they are still on the road. Some are used to commute, driving around kids, picking up groceries or even working vehicle. Most of these driver enjoy that fact that they’re paid off, or soon will be. They would gladly like to keep their vehicles for 200,000 miles or more as long as it isn’t in the shop too much.
There are plenty of people whose vehicles are running after 100,000 or 200,000 miles. What do all these vehicles have in common and what what can we learn from them that’s keeping them on the road so long.
A common denominator is that they never skip regular maintenance. That may sound a bit unsophisticated, but it’s really not. Most importantly, oil is the life blood of your engine and it needs to be clean to properly lubricate. Skipping oil changes leads to clogged oil filters and sludge that can damage your engine.
There’s another reason why the scheduling an oil change is so important. It’s simple, an Orozco’s Auto Service ASE certified mechanic is going to be inspecting your your vehicle. All of your fluid levels will be inspected and topped off so they won’t get so low that damage can be done. If there is a significant fluid loss, let’s use brake fluid as an example, your technician can look for the cause of the loss and find the problem before it leads to an accident or costly repair.
The service technician will also visually inspect the vehicle for worn belts and hoses, uneven tire wear, leaking shock absorbers and more. Problems get addressed before they lead to repairs that cost more than the car’s worth. And your service advisor will be able to remind you of other services that the factory recommends you get done.
Of course, good maintenance costs money, but it’s far cheaper than buying a new. Additionally, regular maintenance will help you maintain the best millage your vehicle can offer.
