With a new SUV, you won't need to worry about repairs for some time, but it is still important to be prepared for potential services your Terrain may eventually need. Continue reading to learn some of the most common automotive repairs to be aware of.
During the time you own your vehicle, your brake pads will gain enough wear and tear to have to be replaced more than once. This isn't because you are doing something wrong, this is just how brake pads were designed. Because they are a wear and tear part, they are one of the most common repairs mechanics deal with. There are some other forms of brake repair that your vehicle may endure though, such as disc, drum or rotor repair. Brake lines are another potential repair, but is very rate, typically only required if they are cut somehow.
Another common automotive issue mechanics often see involves your car's fuel system. Your fuel system is used for, you guessed it, fuel. If you regularly drive your car with less than ¼ of a tank of gas, your fuel pump can become clogged. Another issue may be a clogged fuel filter, which is why this part needs to be replaced on a regular basis so this problem can be avoided.
A major part of your vehicle is the ignition system, which includes the battery, starter and ignition. It is also a system that is subject to repairs. Battery replacements, for instance is an easy, fairy inexpensive fix, whereas if you have a starter issue, you can expect the price of repairs to be rather high.
As you probably know, oil changes are one of the most important maintenance services to provide your vehicle with regularly. So is there any wonder why they would be on our list for one of the most common services seen by mechanics? Oil works to ensure all engine parts are well-lubricated so they run in a smooth, efficient manner. It also draws heat away from your engine so it won't overheat. By changing your car's oil every few thousand miles as suggested, you will help keep your engine in the best possible running condition, along with lengthening its lifespan.
Tire Repairs and Replacements
If you're like many car owners, you don't spend much time worrying about your tires. We just expect them to roll and grip the road as designed to do. But because tires are a key safety component of your vehicle, it is important to inspect them regularly – for correct air pressure and excessive wear and tear. As durable as tires are, patches and complete replacements are very common automotive issues. Tires can leak or fail for a number of reasons – their sidewalls can split or they can be punctured by a nail or other sharp object. While most tire repairs can be inexpensive, if your tire(s) need to be replaced, the cost can add up quickly.
