If you are a first-time vehicle owner, the thought of visiting an auto shop can be intimidating. The mechanics may seem to be speaking a foreign language when they start to explain what needs to be done on your car. You may also be worried that a costly car repair will be necessary. To ease your fears, we will briefly discuss what happens when you get your car serviced.

First of all, do some homework about the various maintenance items that are recommended for your vehicle. You will find a list in your owner’s manual (it is probably in your car’s glove box) of the manufacturer’s service guidelines for your specific vehicle. It is also easy to check out descriptions online as to what certain services should include. Secondly, if you’re a new driver, take a more experienced vehicle owner along with you to the auto shop. They can help “interpret” what the mechanic may be saying and may also know some good questions to ask.

So what happens when you get your car serviced? The basic car service should include a thorough check of all the working parts of your car (inside and outside) for parts that may be wearing out. Your mechanic can let you know if there are any issues that need immediate attention or what work could be put off for a while longer.

A couple of tips to remember is that your mechanic should provide you with a list of work that needs to be done along with an estimate of the cost. You will then need to give your permission before any work is started. If other issues are found during the course of the job, you should be notified, and again, receive an estimate before giving permission so that you don’t receive an unexpected bill for some work that you knew nothing about. Also, don’t forget to ask if you need to arrange transportation if your vehicle will be in the shop for several hours.

The most important thing to remember is that keeping up-to-date with vehicle maintenance will ensure you have reliable and safe transportation, while also helping avoid costly car repairs.
