Many people are under the misconception that they must go to a car dealership for routine maintenance if their car is under warranty. This is simply not the case; in fact, in almost every situation getting routine maintenance performed on your vehicle by an independent garage will not affect your warranty. This includes tire rotations, oil changes, fluid checks, new brake pads and more. Going to your neighborhood garage also comes with the added benefits of convenience and that personal touch you just won’t get at large dealership. When considering whether to take your vehicle to a local garage or to a dealership for routine maintenance, take the following into consideration.

Does it seem like you’re having to stop to fill up your car’s gas tank too often? You could swear you just fueled up last week, but you’re already on empty? This could be a sign that you’re burning fuel faster than necessary. There are ways to cut back on your fuel consumption by changing your driving habits; your wallet and the environment will benefit if you start implementing the following tips into your daily commute.
Other than putting gas in the tank, an oil change is the service most often performed on your car. However, many drivers are unaware of when their vehicle requires an oil change. On average, automobiles need an oil change approximately every 7,500 miles. That being said, rather than picking an arbitrary number, it is recommended to consult the vehicle’s owner manual for the advised number of mileage preceding an oil change. This resource provides information for different cars and the frequency with which they need an oil change.
The car battery is an essential component of your vehicle; it provides the necessary energy current to the starter motor and the ignition system to start the engine. Additionally, it supplies supplementary current when the demand is higher than the alternator can supply, acting as an electrical reservoir. Furthermore, the battery supplies power to the electronics while the engine is not running. Without a working battery, most automobiles cannot start, making the battery an integral part of a car’s machine. Surprisingly many people are unaware of the longevity of their vehicle’s battery despite the important role it plays.
You probably have seen cars driving around with the black and grey “U” Uber logo in their windows, or maybe the bright pink mustaches on the hoods of Lyft cars.

It is now the norm to take an Uber instead of a taxi because of how seamless it is to order an Uber, not to mention Ubers cost less than most taxi rides.
