One of the most common questions we hear from consumers is, “What do I need to do to take care of my car and avoid big repair bills?”
Well, fortunately, the answer is simple: Establish and follow a regular vehicle service, repair and maintenance plan. A service or maintenance plan is essential for protecting your automotive investment and maximizing the reliability and safety of your vehicle - whether it's a VW, Honda, Toyota, BMW or even an Audi.
Start with reading your vehicle owner’s manual, if you can find it, and there's where you’ll find the automaker’s recommendations and maintenance schedules based on your driving patterns and habits. Or, check with David George at the ImportDoktor.
Next, you’ll need to find a good repair shop in Louisville, like the Import Doctor, a.k.a the VolksDoktor. Whether a shop is connected to a new car dealership, part of a national chain or an independent service provider, the most important thing to look for is whether they have certified technicians on staff.
You’ll also need to know how to communicate properly and effectively to avoid misunderstandings that can increase repair and diagnostic costs.
