Often times we hear how important it is to keep up-to-date with vehicle maintenance  and to be timely with necessary vehicle repairs.  But what is the difference between the two?  It is easy to interchange these two terms, so let’s take a closer look:

Vehicle maintenance is routine, scheduled services, inspections, and part replacements that the vehicle manufacturer recommends based on age or mileage of a vehicle. Some examples of maintenance are:

  • Oil changes
  • Transmission service
  • Radiator service
  • Tune-up (consists of, but not limited to a check of the spark plugs, wire, cap and rotor, fuel filter, air filter, and PCV valve.)

Vehicle repairs are services that are required when something on your vehicle either stops working or is not working properly and either disables your vehicle completely or makes it unsafe to drive. Some examples of repairs are:

  • Brakes
  • Steering/Suspension
  • Engine
  • Battery
  • A/C — Heat

If you think your vehicle is in need of maintenance or repair of any kind visit your local Best-One®, and we will be more than happy to take a look at your vehicle!
