When Times Get Tough - What Maintenance Can I Put Off


Gas Prices are at an all-time high. Get better gas mileage with maintenance.

These are challenging times in Truckee and Lake Tahoe.  Rising costs for pretty much everything effects your wallet and your budget. While it may be tempting to cut corners to save money by deferring vehicle maintenance or finding a "discount" repair, Quality Automotive Servicing wants to highlight the potential pitfalls in doing this and what you gain by keeping current with service.  

You can prevent expensive repairs with preventative maintenance:   
Putting off regular maintenance or using a discount Big Box shop might seem like a cost-saving measure, but it can lead to unforeseen and costly repairs. Comprehensive and regular maintenance acts as a preventive measure, ensuring that your vehicle is reliable and is able to withstand mountain driving conditions. You can avoid damage to you vehicle and it's engine components and actually save money with smart maintenance from the professionals at Truckee's Quality Automotive Servicing.  

 A QAS service advisor can help you negotiate what you can put off and what maintenance will keep you from experiencing a bigger hardship. Give QAS a call at 530-448-8532 or log on at www.QualityAutomotiveServicing.com to make an appointment. 

A well-performing engine is more fuel efficient.
With gas prices soaring near to $6 a gallon in Truckee and Lake Tahoe, investing in vehicle maintenance becomes a strategic move to save on fuel costs. At Quality Automotive Servicing we aim for your well-maintained vehicle to perform more efficiently and get better gas mileage. This helps you save money at the pump and put let toxins into the environment. 


Address an "engine malfunction/check engine" light promptly. You will save big dollars and a potential disaster. 
Ignoring a check engine light is risky and dangerous. Driving with a lit check engine light indicates an underlying issue that can cause engine damage. Failing to diagnose and repair this issue promptly could lead to more severe and costly problems down the road. The check engine light serves as an early warning system, and addressing it promptly can prevent potential disasters.

A Discount Service or Repair is Asking For Trouble 

There are many shops out there to choose from and it's common to choose based on price. This is problematic because not all shops have the service experience and quality reputation of Quality Automotive Servicing in Truckee.  Even a simple oil service can go ary when a under-trained technician is doing the work. Now is not the time to cut corners and end up with more problems and unexpected repairs. Stick with a shop you can trust to do quality workmanship, use quality products and stand behind the work with a warranty.
