Hold on to your ride: Save money with regular maintenance vs buying a new car

Save money with regular maintenance

At Certified Performance & Auto Repair, we understand the allure of a shiny new car. But before you trade in your trusty set of wheels, consider the power of regular maintenance! Here's why keeping up with your car's needs might be smarter (and cheaper) than a new car payment.

Save Money, Save Time

Regular maintenance is like preventative healthcare for your car. Oil changes, tire rotations, and filter replacements might seem small, but they prevent major problems down the road.  These minor fixes are significantly cheaper than replacing a blown engine or transmission.  Think of it as extending your car's lifespan, saving you money in the long run.

Safety First

A well-maintained car is a safe car. Regular maintenance ensures your brakes are responsive, your tires have proper tread depth, and your fluids are topped off.  This translates to better handling, shorter stopping distances, and a reduced risk of breakdowns that could leave you stranded.

The Environmental Impact

Manufacturing new cars takes a toll on the environment. By keeping your existing car on the road, you're reducing your carbon footprint.  Regular maintenance also helps your car run more efficiently, which means fewer emissions and better gas mileage.

Know What You've Got

There's a certain comfort in knowing your car's history. With regular maintenance, you're familiar with your car's quirks and any potential issues. This allows you to make informed decisions about repairs and avoid the gamble of an unknown used car.

New Car Appeal? Not So Fast!

Sure, new cars boast the latest features and technology. But many of these features can be retrofitted into older cars, and the base models of new cars often lack the bells and whistles you might think you want.

The Bottom Line

Unless your car is on its last legs, consider the cost-effectiveness and environmental benefits of regular maintenance. Here at Performance & Auto Repair, our certified technicians can help you create a personalized maintenance plan to keep your car running smoothly for miles to come. Schedule an appointment today and discover the power of preventative care for your car!
