Why Preventive Maintenance & Road Safety Is So Important

At Complete Car Care in Encinitas, our auto mechanics make it their mission to keep you and your family driving in a safe and secure vehicle, while out on the roads in Carlsbad, Rancho Santa Fe, and beyond. However, you have a part to play too, as routine preventative maintenance and auto repair is imperative to securing both the safety and longevity of your vehicle.

When it comes to auto repair, it is always better to be safe than sorry. If you see the flash of the check engine light on your dashboard, bring your vehicle to Complete Car Care in Encinitas. This light could indicate numerous problems of varying degrees of severity. But like we said, it is always better to be safe than sorry, as ignoring the light could mean ignoring a potentially dangerous and expensive problem.

The average car has 17 computers, and it takes a skilled technician to be able to interpret and analyze each one of the computers, along with all the other components in your engine. To keep these computers going and the engine firing, preventative maintenance is a must. Don’t put off preventative maintenance until it is too late, and you may end up dealing with a problematic and unsafe issue. For example, an oxygen sensor could quickly fall into your exhaust system, which will ultimately affect how much fuel your vehicle consumes. Even worse, the exhaust system could end up dumping gas in your catalytic converter, which leads to a catalytic converter replacement.

Either way, don’t put off preventative maintenance or your check engine light. Our team of auto mechanics at Complete Car Care in Encinitas are experts at keeping vehicles performing in pristine condition, and we want to enter a partnership with you, a partnership geared toward preserving the reliability and longevity of your car.
