When you love your car, you take good care of it.
Taking it to the car wash regularly is one way of showing it affection. Enhancing its sound system with a superb car audio installation is another. Then there’s bringing it in for a scheduled tune up.
Unfortunately, some car owners tend to neglect that last one.
More often than not, car owners ignore tune-ups because their vehicle seems to be functioning well despite missing the appointment.
What they don’t realize is that cars that don’t get the tune-up they need after, say, 25,000 miles will eventually let you know that missing it is not a good idea.
Cars that don’t go through a scheduled tune-up will eventually take a long time to start.
Even if you do manage to start the engine, the lack of a tune-up has raised its risk of stalling at some point.
If you look more closely, you will notice that your fuel mileage will suffer, too.
Missing a tune-up may also reduce your car’s braking capacity, which could put you and your passengers in harm’s way.
Car tune-ups are incredibly important. If your car’s manufacturer recommends specific intervals for a tune-up, it would be best if you follow those recommendations.
