It’s that time of year again – the back-to-school season is just around the corner. With parents and students scrambling to buy pens, notebooks, and/or dorm items, most people forget about their cars. If you want your kids to get to school safely, having your car checked for safety is the first step to start.
A tune-up or preventative maintenance is key to keeping your car in good shape throughout the hectic school season. When you bring your car to Scruggs Automotive for a check-up, the first thing we will check for is any unusual signs, like odd sounds or weird smells.
Another crucial area that needs to be checked is your wheels. Nobody wants to have to deal with a flat or blowout on their commute. Our expert team can assess their pressure and tread wear. While we are down there, we will look at the brakes’ condition. We will check the brake pads, brake fluid, brake rotors, brake calipers, and more.
Next, we will move on to the fluids. All cars, trucks, and SUVs run on various fluids to keep their systems lubricated and operational. Your engine oil needs to be changed every 3,000 miles, more or less. It can prevent your engine from catastrophic damage. You can’t forget about transmission fluid, coolant, power steering, and windshield wiper washer fluid. Last but not least, we will check your vehicle’s exterior lighting. They need to be bright in rainy, snowy, or dark conditions.
Once we service your vehicle, you and your children will be on your way to safer rides. If you want to go the extra mile, we recommend carrying around a car emergency kit. This can include a flashlight, medical kit, spare tire kit, jumper cables, chargers, and more.
At Scruggs Automotive, we can deliver the highest quality workmanship and customer service at fair prices. If you need to schedule a tune-up or maintenance service soon, please contact our team today. We are always happy to help!
