Part one of a series on transmission diagnostics explores reasons why this should be part of your regular service visit.
Get a Transmission Diagnostic Today
You should get a transmission diagnostic done. Oh, we know what you’re thinking. It is a good idea, sure, but isn’t it just money wasted. Think about it for a second. Sure you have to pay for a transmission diagnostic. But it’s cheaper than you might think, particularly in light of your alternatives.
In our last article, we covered a common question: how much is transmission repair? Well it is all relative. When you look at the cost of either rebuilding a transmission, or repairing one, and compare it to the cost of a simple transmission diagnostic, you can see you’re getting a bargain. All the more so when you consider how important your car is in your daily lives.
Transmission Service and Your Car
A lot depends on your car, and as a result you want to be taking good care of it. Transmission service is just one of those things you have to do to keep something very useful. Most people don’t know what they’ve got until it is gone. Your car is more than just tires and a steering wheel. It is your independence. Have to pick up your kids from school? No problem, you’ve got a car. Need to buy some groceries or run some errands? That’s all too easy when you have a means of transportation. But when your car is down, what is an easy task taking very little time becomes a nightmare spanning hours.
In many cities across the US, having a car is more of a liability and less of an asset, however, that’s not the case in Phoenix. Bus service is spotty, with big chunks of the southeast valley having little to no bus service. And in case you haven’t noticed, it is hot in Arizona. Do you really want to wait for anywhere from thirty minutes to an hour and a half for the next bus to come or would you rather get in your car or truck and go where you will, when you will?
Having a car is a privilege. It allows you to get around and makes life easier. So take care of your car. Get it in for transmission service today.
