Keys to a Long Lasting Vehicle

We're living in a disposable society. Everything from elaborate packaging to our clothing. Even cell phones are disposable. When replacement is cheaper than repair, the term "built to last" goes by the wayside. An exception is our vehicles. They're still a very big investment and we want to make them last as long as possible - and we want to make keeping them as cheap as possible.

For the rest of use, we need to improve our fuel economy anyway we can. Following recommended service intervals by coming into Precision Auto Repair is one of the best ways to keep your car running efficiently. That means better fuel economy.
