Commitment to Make Your vehicle Last at Alternative Automotive

Posted February 2, 2020 8:37 AM

These days many people in the Escondido area are really committed to making their cars last a long time. First thing: you've got to start with what you've got. It'd be ideal if people started with a brand new car, never missed a scheduled service item, paid attention to the severe service maintenance schedule and had regular inspections. But if you've had the vehicle for a while or bought it used, its maintenance history is what it is; and that's where you start.

Go through the maintenance schedule for your vehicle and see what's been done and when. Have your Escondido service advisor at Alternative Automotive do an inspection and come up with a list of stuff that needs to be done. Review the list and prioritize the work, talk about budget and make a plan to get caught up.

Making a plan is so important. Suppose you go in for an oil change and learn you need your cooling system serviced, a transmission service and are coming up on a timing belt replacement in the next 5,000 miles/8,000 kilometers. You might be pretty overwhelmed.

To make it even more stressful, these are all very important systems that are expensive to repair if there's a failure. In a consultation with your Alternative Automotive service advisor, you might decide to take care of the transmission on this visit, set an appointment for the cooling system service next month and get an estimate for the timing belt replacement so you'll be prepared for it in a few months.

Having a plan for taking care of these important services will set your mind at ease.

I have been going to Alternative Automotive for over twenty years. There has never been a time when I have not been greeted and welcomed. I have always been pleased with their service on my cars. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

First experience with Alternative Automotive was a great one. My car broke down and Daniel and the team had me in and out in no time and back on the road. They were very professional and honest to work with. I will definitely be back next time I need service for my autos.
