When it comes time to repairing your car, it might be tempting to put these services off – especially if your car isn’t majorly damaged or in need of significant repairs or mechanical overhauls. This temptation rises even further once you take into account how expensive and costly car repairs can be – not to mention how time consuming and inconvenient the entire process ends up being. For some people in Perth, their car is their only form of viable transport to and from work; for others, it serves as their livelihood and means of earning an income. Time away from the car means time away from work; and as we all know, time away from work means less money. With so many bills on the table already – rent, mortgage, utilities, food, and everyday expenditure – repairing your car could be the last thing on your list of things you can actually afford. However, putting off repairing your car could end up costing you even more money down the track – even taking into account those hefty mechanic fees.
Driving a damaged vehicle effectively results in significantly compromised and inefficient functioning: it can even exacerbate already existing problems and lead to new and more expensive ones – in addition to compounding significant damage. Built up oil sludge acts as a gel, sticking to your car’s engine and inhibiting smooth and regular oil flow throughout your vehicle. The end result? Over stressed engine oil that works at polluting your engine and making your car work even harder than it should. Forced to work overtime, a car in desperate need of repair will cause excessive and unnecessary wear and tear to its own systems, leading to even greater repairs – not to mention blown running costs – when it comes time to drag it into a car mechanic.
