Did you know that the performance of your vehicle's wheel system is basically dependent on the condition of your car axles? Their condition impacts the steering, driving, and braking of your vehicle, plus transmitting the power from the engine to the wheels. Axles also carry the entire weight of the vehicle, plus passengers and cargo. Most axles can last well over 100,000 miles unless they’re damaged in some way. However, the constantly rotating and flexing to accommodate road conditions subjects them to a lot of stress. This stress will also impact your car shocks. If you start to notice any of the signs below, be sure to schedule an inspection of your suspension system.

Even though car axles can last a long time they will eventually wear out as the miles add up. When they fail, the effect is immediate and sometimes dangerous, since power will no longer transfer from the engine to the tires.

Would you recognize the symptoms of bad drive axles? Don’t ruin car shocks by neglecting suspension problems.

At some point, many of us may have delayed taking care of a car repair or a required service because we’ve been too busy or possibly short on cash. You may have extended a required service interval thinking you are saving money. However, you should understand that if you wish to keep the performance of your car at its optimum level and extend the life of the engine, don’t wait for a major problem before taking it to your auto shop.

Just as we go to the doctor for an annual checkup to make sure everything in our bodies is running smoothly, the same applies to our car! Vehicle manufacturers set a service schedule in order to keep that car running reliably and safely for many miles. Regular car service is crucial in keeping your car safe and roadworthy and protecting yourself and other drivers. If those services are neglected, you will more than likely be looking at a costly car repair sooner rather than later.

Wondering what does a car service include and why it is important? You can prevent costly and unexpected car repair by taking good care of your car.
