1/3 of us aren't prepared for surprise Auto Repairs

According to a new study from AAA  almost one third of us can't afford to pay $500 for vehicle repairs without pulling out the plastic.  It's scary to think that 1 out of 3 people will be unable to pay for a new set of tires without turning to some form of loan.  

As a vehicle gets older even if you are relentless with the maintenance, will need repairs and replacement of worn parts.  New brakes, timing chain, a flush of transmission fluid all could lead to a surprise Auto repair bill.  The Service Advisers at Gresham Ford provide you with a prioritization of the repairs you need right now and the ones that can wait.  

Keeping up with your maintenance is  important.  When you visit the Gresham Quick Lane to leave every visit with a Vehicle Report Card that gives you an update of the status of your vehicle without having to crawl under there yourself.  

Be prepared for auto repairs with these Four Tips:

  1. Set aside $50 every month to finance a car-care fund
  2. Follow the maintenance schedule in the owner's manual.
  3. Ask for a discount at your Auto Repair Center of choice.
