Brakes and Oil Changes Among the Most Common Services

In South Florida, vehicles are essential.

Our vehicles help us get to where we need to go daily, so it’s no surprise that they experience plenty of wear and tear. However, many drivers forget that their vehicles need regular maintenance and the only time maintenance is considered is when emergency indicators light up on the dashboard. If you’re a driver who doesn’t perform routine maintenance checks on your vehicle, you’re not alone. Yet, it’s important to consider auto repair in Delray Beach more often.

Here, at AutoWorks, most of the vehicles that we service come in for brakes, oil changes, AC system repairs, and wheel alignments.

Any one of these services may not seem a high priority, but if not tended to, they could lead to more costly repairs and to an unsafe ride.

For example, the brakes on your vehicle are what help you stop in traffic,or at stop signs. When brakes become worn, we perhaps think that we have plenty of time to fix them. However, what then happens is that we are more susceptible to an accident, but not just any accident. An accident caused by brake damages can be hurtful to the driver, as well as others.   

Oil changes are what keep all of the smaller elements in your vehicle running smoothly. A car’s engine is made up of many parts and components. The oil ensures they don’t grind, and that they’re well lubricated. Over time, oil becomes contaminated with debris, such as dust and small particles. These particles can create wear and tear on the smaller elements, which affects the whole.

Although drivers in other states may get along okay without their car’s AC system, the reality is that Florida weather is far too hot and humid to go without it. Even if a driver rolls down their windows, that warm air will provide little, to no relief. Because the AC systems work so hard in South Florida, they tend to have more problems than they would in cooler locations. To keep yourself, your family and passengers cool, don’t hold off on having AutoWorks inspect your AC system.

If your car is pulling to the left of to the right, it may need an alignment. Also, aligning the wheels ensures that all of the tires wear at the same speed and in the same way. Without this, you may find that your tires need to be replaced at different times, which can become frustrating and expensive. A wheel alignment ensures that your car drives safely, efficiently, and in a straight line.
