Ten Reasons to Invest in an Annual Car “Physical”

Your vehicle is running fine. So why bother taking it in for an inspection? A lot of reasons!

1. Cut repair costs.

Discovering a worn component before it creates major problems can save big money.

2. Safety.

A poorly maintained vehicle can drive you into a serious accident.

3. Better performance.

This translates to improved fuel economy as well as improved drivability.

4. Saving the environment.

Undermaintained vehicles are a serious contributor to air pollution.

5. Improved trade-in/resale value.

A well-maintained vehicle can be worth 2-3 times as much as one that has been neglected.

6. Better handling.

Incorrect wheel alignment, worn suspension components and/or tires cause poor ride and handling.

7. Ability to plan ahead.

When a checkup indicates future need for replacement of a part, you can budget accordingly.

8. Dependability.

A well-maintained vehicle is less likely to stall, fail to start or otherwise leave you stranded.

9. Driving enjoyment.

It’s more comfortable and more fun to drive a car that holds the road and drives well.

10. Pride of ownership.

It’s said that your car is an extension of your personality. Keep it looking like you care.
