Six Ways You Could be Killing Your Car

Six Ways You Could be Killing Your Car


Owning a car can be a dream or a nightmare depending on how well you take care of your vehicle, says the non-profit Car Care Council. The following are six things that many motorists do that can harm their car and their wallet.




Ignoring the check engine light. Ignoring an illuminated check engine light can result in serious engine trouble and costly repairs. At the very least, this warning light could alert you to an engine problem that is negatively impacting fuel economy.



Failing to change fluids and filters. Many fluids are required for the operation and protection of vehicle systems and components. Checking fluid levels regularly, along with the filters, helps ensure that your vehicle runs dependably and extends vehicle life.



Neglecting your tires. Your vehicle's tires should be checked frequently for inflation and tread depth. Underinflated tires can wear out more quickly, needing to be replaced sooner, and can negatively impact safety, gas mileage and performance.



Not following a service schedule. Because many car parts and components wear out or become damaged over time, vehicles need to be routinely serviced in order to perform optimally. Routine inspections and timely repairs will help keep your car running efficiently and will help you avoid more expensive repairs down the road.



Keeping a dirty car. Allowing your car to go too long without a wash leads to buildup of damaging chemicals and dirt, increases the potential for rust from road salt and interferes with proper visibility needed for safe driving.



Being a severe driver. Whether it's stop-and-go traffic, extreme weather, rough roads or heavy loads, it can sometimes be difficult to limit severe driving conditions. However, you can drive smart and improve fuel economy by observing the speed limit; avoiding aggressive driving, including quick starts and stops; not hauling unnecessary items; and keeping your vehicle properly tuned.



"Because auto care isn't always a top priority for car owners, they might not realize they are doing things that adversely affect the performance, safety and value of their car," said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. "Routine maintenance can go a long way toward saving money, avoiding headaches and protecting your vehicle investment."

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++

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.
