Automotive Repair Blog: Tips, Facts, and Fixes


We can’t emphasize the importance of preventative maintenance enough. Your car is one of the largest investments you will make in your lifetime, only second to your home. Because of how much we rely on our vehicles, it’s crucial to perform maintenance on a routine basis. This way, you can drive down the streets of Littleton and Denver in a safe and smooth car for many more months and miles.

Proactivity is key in securing the long-term reliability and driveability of your vehicle, regardless of the make or model. Your car has certain service intervals, which is when certain maintenance items are performed at specific mileage points, such as the 30K or even 120K interval. At Pro Auto Care, we pay close attention to these service intervals, as procedures are expected to be performed at each mile marker. For instance, our technicians will take a look at your vehicle’s fluids, engine air filter, and tire pressure.


To summarize, here are three main reasons why preventative maintenance is so integral:


  • Safety: Safe driving is directly correlated with the condition of your car. If you are driving a vehicle with poorly maintained brakes, for example, the results could be disastrous.

  • Improve performance and fuel economy: A well-maintained car simply runs better. For example, if you can’t remember the last time your oil was changed, you may find your engine not running as smooth as it normally does. And a car performing in pristine condition translates to more fuel efficiency.

  • Longevity: We are all about preventing rather than repairing, and preventative maintenance is the way to do so. If you are bringing your car to our shop for service intervals, you are extending the lifespan of your vehicle.

To keep preserve the safety, longevity, and reliability of your vehicle, keep up on preventative maintenance.
