Procrastination on car repairs pays… the auto shops

Americans are keeping their cars and trucks longer these days.  When consumers do finally trade vehicles, more people now choose used vehicles instead of new.  Both these trends translate into increased business for auto repair shops. That is what makes today a great time to build a new automotive repair shop— or to expand a current auto business—with prefabricated metal shop buildings.

Mr. Wrench Mechanics Garage built with a RHINO metal building systemOlder cars on the road mean more business for auto shops.  The average auto repair bill in the U.S. was about $368 in 2012.

Car Problems Not Addressed Now Lead to Higher Costs Later

Many consumers try to save a buck by postponing car maintenance and repairs.

When people delay preventative maintenance like oil changes, transmission servicing, tune-ups, and lube jobs, eventually they will be unable to avoid the even bigger repairs caused by procrastination.  Ignoring a $10 spark plug problem could lead to a $300 ignition coil and spark plug repair.  Continuing to close your eyes to the problem even longer and you have to dish out $1,000 for a new catalytic converter.

According to “CarMD,” ignoring common auto repairs may also reduce gas mileage.

For example, that “check engine” light on your dash may be a faulty O2 sensor.  Gas mileage may drop by 40% if replacing the sensor is postponed!
