5 Most Ignored Problems That Can Cost You Big

Never Changing the Oil – The dirty oil in your engine can eventually lead to complete engine replacement ($5-8,000 or more). Generally, you’ll want to change the oil annually or by the mileage the manufacturer specifies whichever comes first.  See our oil change service



Driving on Old or Improperly Inflated Tires – The ignored tires can damage your wheels and rotors, costing 13 times more than new tires! ($1,200-2,000). read more about tire safety and maintenance




Putting Off Wheel Alignment – Delaying wheel alignment can require needing new tires, shock and struts ($1,200-1,500)




Ignoring the Check Engine Light – Ignoring a “check engine” warning caused by a faulty oxygen sensor can ruin your catalytic converter ($2,000-$2,100)




Ignoring Strange Noises or Your Car Driving Differently – The longer you wait to get them checked out, the worse (and more expensive and dangerous) the problem is going to become. Brakes ($1,100-1,500), Timing belt ($1,500-3,000)!
