ABCs of Smart Driving

The guys at Axleboy are more than just mechanics.  We’re also husbands, fathers, and daily drivers.  While automobiles are our specialty, safety is our top priority and we make it as easy as ABC.

 

A. Adhere to a preventative maintenance plan.   A properly maintained car or truck can easily last 200,000 miles or more…while a vehicle that is not maintained will likely see the junkyard before it reaches even 100,000.  When your car or truck is serviced at Axleboy, we’ll even send you convenient reminders when your vehicle is due for service.

B. Be aware of your vehicle.  Every car is different and the driver who is aware will often notice as soon as anything seems amiss.  The steady hum of the engine, the scent & sound of ventilation, the feel of the steering and much more are all unique to your vehicle.  Familiarize yourself with the way your vehicle sounds, smells and feels so you can catch a problem before it becomes a catastrophe.

C. Consult with an automotive professional at the first sign of abnormality.  It doesn’t cost anything to talk with the guys at Axleboy, and our professionals are always willing to discuss options. Unfortunately procrastination of even minor service treatments may lead to increased automotive damage and higher repair bills down the road.
