Can Your Car Last Another Year?

July 26, 2016


Have you checked out the price of new vehicles at Lincoln car dealers? Ouch! Add financing and insurance and - well a new ride may not seem so attractive. A lot of Lincoln, Nebraska folks are hoping to make their cars last a lot longer.

Fortunately, with the current state of automotive engineering and manufacturing, there's no reason a modern vehicle can't be made to last for a 150,000 miles or more for smart Lincoln drivers.

The old adage: 'a stitch in time saves nine' is really true for Lincoln residents when it comes to car maintenance. A great example is coolant service.

Over time, coolant becomes corrosive and actually starts to damage your radiator and other parts. Smart Lincoln drivers have their cooling system service taken care of right on schedule at Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Lincoln.

Ditto for your power steering system, brake fluid, air conditioning system, differential and transmission. Of course, oil changes should be done right on schedule to avoid the build-up of harmful oil sludge.

Don't let your brake pads go too long before they are worn to the point that your rotors are at risk. Preventative auto maintenance at Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Lincoln is a great way to keep your operating costs down in.

Replacing belts and hoses is much cheaper than repairing the damage that can be caused by failure.

We know that this is a lot for busy Lincoln area drivers to remember. Let the team of automotive professionals at Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Lincoln keep on top of this stuff for you. We can tell you what your vehicle manufacturer recommends and help you develop an affordable plan to take care of it.

Bottom line – do routine maintenance on schedule and you will reduce operating costs, prevent repairs and maintain your warranty coverage.

Let us take good care of your car at Tuffy Tire & Auto Service Lincoln in Lincoln, and it'll take good care of you.
