Receiving a car as a holiday gift is exciting, especially if you want that special model! However, car ownership comes with important responsibilities after the initial celebration, including a visit to Catlett’s Service Center & Towing for a full auto-inspection. Here is what you can expect after receiving a new or used car for the holidays.
Schedule an Appointment at Catlett’s Service Center & Towing
Regularly visiting a mechanic is crucial in keeping your car in tip-top shape. Please contact our auto shop at 410-798-5446 to schedule an appointment for an auto inspection.
Used Car Initial Inspection
During the car inspection, our technicians will pay particular attention to these critical areas:
- Current fluid levels / any potential leaks
- Dashboard lights
- Air filter life & hose conditions
- Current battery life
- Tire tread
- Brake conditions
Not only will the technicians focus on these areas, but they will also perform a 360-degree inspection of your vehicle. The inspection is performed thoroughly to ensure that no issues are left undiscovered.
Keep Your New Car in Good Shape
Receiving a new car for the holidays is a great gift, and it needs to be taken care of and treated well to last for years. Since a car is expensive, it pays to keep it in good shape. Keeping your vehicle in good shape means maintaining regular auto inspections at Catlett’s Service Center & Towing, which comes with a long list of benefits, including:
- Increased Safety
Your car works best when fluid levels and air pressure are properly maintained. Regular maintenance will also examine your brakes, windshield wipers, and other important car components.
- Saves Money
The better you maintain your car, the more you’ll avoid bigger and more expensive problems. When your car is running its best, you’ll usually have fewer issues, which saves you more money in the long run.
- Return on Investment
Taking care of your car means that you can trade it in one day, upgrading to a newer model or a brand-new car. A dealership will want to see that regular maintenance was performed on the vehicle. Without regularly documented maintenance, you may not receive as high of a trade-in offer. Please contact us at 410-798-5446 to schedule an appointment for an auto inspection.
