Worried about the cost of a transmission repair?

Some people believe rather than mess with a transmission repair, they should just buy some new wheels. It’s important to understand the true costs of buying a new vehicle (or a used vehicle) before going down that path.

If you buy something new, you have to deal with acquiring a new loan and car depreciation. A new vehicle loses most of its value in the first five years you own it, and you will lose thousands of dollars as soon as you drive off the dealer’s lot.

If you buy a used vehicle you may just inherit someone else’s problems. Not to mention, if you plan on trading in your vehicle with a transmission problem, the value they give you for the trade-in will be a lot less.

As a car owner, it can be easy to ignore your wheel alignment until you need a new set of tires. However, just like getting an oil change, your car’s wheel alignment requires routine maintenance. Knowledgeable and experienced, the friendly professionals at Brown’s Transmission share that getting a tire alignment regularly is crucial for a variety of reasons.

Why You Need to Get Your Wheels Aligned

Safety

Regular tire alignments are vital for the safety of you, your passengers, and other drivers on the road. When your alignment is off, your car will veer toward the left or right, which can be distracting and dangerous. Aligned wheels provide better control of the car and decreased risk of a total breakdown.

Completing routine maintenance on your vehicle keeps it running properly and helps you avoid preventable repairs down the road. An easy way to keep your car in excellent working order is to change the oil on a regular basis. However, knowing how frequently to do this can be a bit confusing. To clear the matter up, Brown’s Transmission, a third generation car mechanic in Newark, OH, explains how often you should get oil changes and why.

Oil lubricates engine parts to keep them running smoothly, in addition to cooling them down. Without oil, your motor will fail. Engine repairs can be expensive, so keeping up with regular oil changes can help keep your car out of the auto repair shop.
