Another Couple of Years: Making Your Vehicle Last With Help From Lube Town

Monday 12th of October 2020

A lot of motorists had older vehicles that they wanted to keep. They're good commuters, grocery getters or toy haulers. They enjoy the fact that they're paid off, or soon will be. They would gladly like to keep their vehicles for 300,000 kilometers or more – as long as it's economical to do so.

There are plenty of Calgary drivers whose vehicles are running after 300,000 or 400,000 kilometers. We can learn from what they're doing to keep our own vehicles on the road in Alberta.

The Calgary drivers of high-mileage cars often report a common denominator of never skipping an oil change.

That may sound a bit unsophisticated, but it's really not. First off, oil is the lifeblood of your vehicle's engine and it needs to be clean to properly lubricate. Skipping oil changes leads to clogged oil filters and sludge that is bad for your engine.

There's another reason the scheduled oil change is so important for Calgary car owners. It's simple – a Lube Town professional is going to be looking at your car. All of your fluid levels will be inspected and topped off so they won't get so low that damage can be done.

Of course, these things cost some money, but they are less than new vehicle payments, especially during uncertain times like a pandemic. With proper service at Lube Town you'll keep surprise repairs to a minimum and more money in your wallet.
