Preventative Maintenance

Preventative maintenance helps to keep your automobile running at peak performance through its entire life. Ogden Motorcar recommends that you follow your manufacturer’s scheduled specifications for vehicle maintenance aligned to your specific vehicle. This will assure that your car’s systems and moving parts function to specifications and that you get the maximum benefit from your investment as well as maintaining manufacturer warranty requirements. The benefits include:

Helping with your cars fuel economy so you can push that dollar farther
As your car ages, there is no reason that you have to forgo performance, preventative maintenance helps to keep your car in as prime condition as possible
Proactive identification of minor issues that will avoid larger major issues later
Fine cracks, frays, leaks and other problems with the belts and hoses that could lead to over heating, loss of power or other issues down the road
Ensure that all fluids are kept at the appropriate level and are clean of debris, dirt, dust and other contaminants so they operate well in any type of environment.
Keeps your car running safer.

With the higher prices of new cars, preventative maintenance helps to extend the life of your car. What is better for your situation – the occasional service check-up or the monthly new car loan payment?

Why tire rotation?

Tire rotation is regular switching of the position of each tire on the car. This will help preserve the balance, handling and traction of the tires. It will help to even out tire wear and help obtain the most life from your tire investment
