How often do you put something off because you don’t want to pay for it? Pretty much all of us do this, even if the expense is related to something important. Your car is the perfect example. Almost certainly you know how vital regular maintenance is to keep your car in good condition, but it’s possible that you have balked a time or two about paying for it.

It’s important to remember, however, the old saying attributed to Benjamin Franklin: “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” The MotorWorld service center offers this list of the financial benefits of regular car service:

You Can Avoid Future Issues

Perhaps the biggest advantage of regular service is that it can help prevent big problems. Having your car looked at periodically gives technicians great insight into the parts or components that are that wearing down and might need to be replaced. A minor expense now is much better than a big one later.

You Can Extend Your Car’s Lifespan

We all know how expensive cars are, so of course, you want yours to last as long as possible. When you are diligent about maintenance, you help ensure that your car stays in optimal, safe condition. Your vehicle overall runs better, resulting in prolonged usage.

You Can Get Better Gas Mileage

When your car is in tip-top shape, not only does it run better, but it also gives you improved gas mileage. Making sure your tires are at the proper inflation levels is one easy way to boost fuel economy.

In addition to being affordable, preventative car maintenance is also generally quick and easy. If your vehicle is due for service, make an appointment with the Cadillac service department at MotorWorld Cadillac in Wilkes-Barre.
