Driver Beware! Danger Lurks If You Ignore These Signs!

18 10 2012

Halloween is upon us and it got me thinking about ignoring danger.  You know when you watch a scary movie and you want to tell the actor/actress, “Don’t go in that room!!”  Of course they never heed the warning and something sinister always occurs!

I’m hoping you don’t ignore my warning when it comes to your car’s health and your safety!  This warning is for anyone who drives a car no matter if you are just starting out at age 16, a student at Grand Canyon University, a daily commuter or someone enjoying retirement; don’t ignore these warning signs.  Your car may be trying to tell you something.

In this economy, many people are putting off preventive maintenance services hoping to save a few dollars.  In theory that sounds good but if you put it off too long it could result in a breakdown and a big repair bill.

Tens of thousands of motorists annually are now putting off servicing their vehicles.  They end up stranded with some form of car trouble and admit that they were aware their vehicle was headed for trouble but just kept hoping it would hold out a little longer…they ignored the warning signs. I don’t want that to happen to you so here are some of the more common signs of impending car trouble:

  • Jiggling at certain speeds
  • Squealing or scraping sound when you apply the brakes
  • Knocks or pings from the engine when you accelerate or climb a hill
  • Failure to start but the engine turns over
  • You’re finding it necessary to add oil between oil changes
  • A check engine or other warning signal lights up on the instrument panel
  • Your muffler is making a rumbling or hissing sound
  • The thumping of a tire due to a flaw
  • The clicking of a worn CV joint when you make a tight turn
  • An engine that keeps chugging when you’ve turned off the ignition
  • Moisture or antifreeze odor detected inside the car

If you experience any of these warning signs, please call me and get it taken care of before it becomes a major repair.  A call now will save you time and money. We are just a couple of blocks from Grand Canyon University and you have my word that Fairway Auto Repair is a trustworthy, family owned shop that you can count on!
