Auto Repair on Mother's Day

Happy Mother’s Day from Ayers Automotive Repair

Ayers Automotive Repair - Mother's DayOur number one priority at Ayers Automotive Repair is automotive safety. This is especially true for family members, but so much more when it comes to moms. This year, show mom you care about her safety by bringing her car to Ayers for our auto repair services. Here are some important reasons for regular preventive auto maintenance:

  • Breakdowns Never Come at a Convenient Time: Does it seem like your car always breaks down at the worst possible times? Mom does so many important things every day, there is never a good time for her to have a breakdown. Unfortunately, the Car Care Council reports that some 84% of vehicles inspected during their 2014 Car Care Aware month needed some type of service or repair. This could be as minor as the need for an oil change or a dirty air filter, but cars in need of brake repair, suspension repair or transmission repair could pose a serious safety risk.
  • Regular Car Care Saves Time and Money: Take control of automotive care now and you’ll save yourself a lot of time and money later on. Poor vehicle maintenace can lead to expensive automotive repairs and possible safety hazards. A scheduled appoinment for routine maintenace is far more convenient than an unexpected major repair. In addition, a vehicle that has been properly maintained is likely to command a higher resale price, whether selling to a dealer or private party.
  • Little Lapses Can Lead to Major Problems: Bring your vehicle to Ayers for service and you could avoid the need for a major automotive repair, truck repair or diesel repair down the road. A small oil leak could lead to major engine problems, while loss of brakes could result in a serious accident.
  • Ride Comfort: You want mom to be comfortable while she is running all the errands she takes care of for your family. A little maintenance for the air conditioning system, for example, will make sure she stays cool as a cucumber, while tire and brake maintenance leads to a smoother ride.

Some of the most important components of automotive maintenance are oil, air filters, tires and brakes. Make sure all of these are taken care of on your mom’s car, and show her how much you care.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Easter From Ayers Repairs

Hop on Over to Ayers for National Car Care Month

Ayers Automotive - National Car Care MonthIt’s April and that means one thing here at Ayers Automotive Repair – National Car Care Month. Spring is the perfect time to let us perform any necessary auto repairs you might have put off over the winter. You want your car to be in top shape for any trips you plan to take this summer!

National Car Care Month is sponsored by the Car Care Council to remind car owners to give your car some extra attention. Results of vehicle inspections held at community car care events across the country last year revealed that 84 percent of the vehicles checked needed some type of service or parts, up 5 percent from the previous year. “Following a routine maintenance program makes financial sense, extending useful vehicle life and helping avoid costly repairs down the road,” reports Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council.

Ayers Automotive believes that regular car care for your domestic, foreign, hybrid or diesel autos is the key to vehicle longevity, along with improved safety and dependability. Here are some tips to keep your car in top running condition:

  • Brake Repair: Have your car’s brake system inspected annually, even if you don’t suspect any problems. Don’t risk any problems while traveling this summer, when it’s easy to let us perform a quick brake check.
  • Check Engine Light: It’s always worthwhile to have us check this out. A flashing check engine light indicates a problem that is currently happening and requires immediate attention.
  • Headlights: It’s important to see and be seen on the road. Let us inspect your car’s headlights and taillights to make sure everything is in good working order.
  • Coolant Levels: Cooling system failure is a leading cause of vehicle breakdowns. We’ll check your coolant level and change it if needed to prevent serious damage or engine failure.
  • Funny Odors: If you smell something funny in your car, it could indicate some type of problem. A musty smell, for example, might indicate a clogged or dirty cabin air filter.
  • Battery: As a battery ages, it performs less efficiently. If your car’s battery is more than three years old its chances of failure increase significantly. 

More car fires happen every year from deferred maintenance than accidents. Keep your family safe this summer; bring your car to Ayers today for brake repair, transmission repair, diesel service, or hybrid maintenance.

Happy Easter!
