Car ownership extends beyond just an auto payment. Car owners often forget to budget regular maintenance on top of their auto payments. Car maintenance should not be put off, because it can lead to costly repairs down the line. For example, an average oil change may cost $30 – $50 and must be performed every 5,000 – 7,500 miles, depending on your vehicle and the type of oil used. If you put off an oil change for too long, you run the risk of your car running out of oil. This will cause your engine to seize up and fail, potentially costing thousands of dollars to repair. Although car maintenance is sometimes viewed as a hassle, Catletts Service Center and Towing strive to make it hassle-free.

Keep Up to Date on Routine Maintenance
On average, a car’s routine maintenance costs an average of 9 cents per mile driven annually. That means if you drive 12,000 miles annually, your total maintenance cost should be roughly $1080. If your routine maintenance falls under this figure, save that money for a rainy day. You never know when your vehicle will need an unexpected repair down the line. Unexpected repairs are much easier to stomach when you already have the funds budgeted out ahead of time.
At Catletts Service Center and Towing, we recommend coming in for routine maintenance on the following items:
- Tire Rotations
- Brake Pad Replacements
- Oil Changes
- Windshield Wiper Replacements
Our technicians will check these items for you during a standard oil change or auto inspection. We provide professional recommendations on when you should next service your vehicle. For example, your tires need to be rotated every 5,000 to 8,000 miles. During your tire rotation, we will advise you if the tread on your tires is getting worn down. Tires with poor tread are dangerous to drive on. Your stopping time is increased, and you will have less control when driving in slippery conditions.
