This Year, Keep Your Old Car Running Like New!15138106811 EDIT

A significant number of drivers are keeping their vehicles longer. According to national surveys, the average age of passenger cars and light trucks is now between 8.8 and 9.4 years.

Thanks to better built engines, improved technology in rust inhibitors and the general sticker shock of a new car, people are keeping their older cars longer and taking better care of them than ever before. With proper maintenance, it’s not unusual to see vehicles accumulate 200,000 miles and more without needing expensive overhauls or repairs (just ask Kami and Melissa who both have over 200,000 miles; we’ve chalked it up to our great technicians.)

If keeping your car in tip top shape is your primary concern, we are here for you. Most of us can’t afford a new vehicle, so we continue to repair what we have. Some of us are attached to our old vehicle; we know every noise, quirk and blind spot. Some of us name our cars (we won’t mention the owner’s name—her white van was named Vanna White.)

No matter the reason for keeping an older vehicle, we understand. Our technicians are trained in all makes and models. They have diagnosed many difficult and unusual problems on early and late model vehicles. If you have a problem while traveling, we answer the phone 24 hours a day—7 days a week. Mike always says, “A new vehicle can break down just like an old one can,” so hang on to your old one if you’d like. Just be sure to keep it maintained—we will be happy to help with all your maintenance and repair needs. Who knows, one day that old vehicle may qualify for an antique plate! This Year, Keep Your Old Car Running Like New!
