Preventative Maintenance More Important As Vehicles Age

Preventative Maintenance More Important As Vehicles Age

The average age of vehicles on the road is rising, and as cars get older, they need more service and repair. The non-profit Car Care Council recommends that motorists who own an older car, truck or SUV become more diligent about preventative maintenance.

"With the average vehicle age exceeding 11.5 years, the chance of a breakdown or service issue on an older vehicle is much greater," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "The Car Care Council urges drivers of older vehicles to implement a preventative maintenance plan for their vehicle to minimize the chances of a roadside breakdown and to also help their vehicle run more efficiently and economically."

According to Experian Automotive, the average age of passenger vehicles on the road is rising, up from 11.29 years in the first quarter of 2015 to 11.61 years in 2019. The most common maintenance procedures to keep a car operating safely and reliably, while maintaining its long-term value, involve checking the oil, filters and fluids, the belts and hoses, brakes, tires and air conditioning. An annual tune-up and wheel alignment are also recommended.

The Car Care Council offers a free custom service schedule and email reminder service. This simple-to-use online resource can be personalized to help busy car owners prioritize auto care while making it more convenient and economical.

In addition, the council's popular Car Care Guide for motorists is available electronically or printed copy in English and Spanish. The guide covers major services, component groups within the vehicle, service interval recommendations and much more.

Absolute best auto repair experience that I've ever had. I live in the city, but Moberg's was so trustworthy and knowledgeable that I plan to come all the way up to Libertyville for future repairs. Well worth the extra drive. A++

Pete and his staff are the best--most knowledgeable, honest, helpful and professional auto repair service I have ever used in 50 years of driving. They are good examples of service to their customers as well as to the LORD.

I have had alot of repairs done at Mobergs and i know that i can trust them. They have given me honest assessments, telling me when i do need work and when i don't. I live over 45 minutes from there now, but still have my repairs done with them because of the trust factor.

Moberg's is the only place I will bring my car for repairs. I've had two major repairs done in the past couple months, and each time, Moberg's provides a superior experience. I am always able to get my car in quickly, and I love that they clearly explain each part of the repair to me in plain language that a non-expert like me can understand. I appreciate their efficiency, and they are always so kind and polite when I come to pick up my vehicle.

This place is fantastic. I was looking for a garage that would not tell me everything is wrong with my car just to sell me something to get their commission. I found that place at Moberg's Automotive. They are honest, friendly, loving people. They gained my trust from the first visit, and I will never go anywhere else if I can help it for as long as I live in the area. When Mr. Pete (the owner) says something needs fixing, it needs fixing. He will even go out of his way to help you. For example, just yesterday, my wife dropped her wedding ring under the passenger seat of my truck. I called Moberg's, scheduled an appointment, went up there, and they got it out. Although I took up their time, energy and space, Mr. Pete refused to accept any payment, saying, smiling, that he was glad to do it for me. This is the kind of experience you will have every time you go to Moberg's Automotive. They are experts, professionals, and friends. You will not regret your visit.
