This summer, we know that many of our friends and favorite customers will all be jumping in the family car or SUV for that quintessential of all American traditions: the summer roadtrip. But, whether you’re heading for the beach, or just to see the grandparents in West Virginia, you’ll want to make sure that your vehicle has been adequately vetted and maintained before you consider putting hundreds or thousands of miles on it in the sweltering summer heat. To that end, Fort Collins Foreign Car Service is here to help. As your local auto shop, we see dozens of vehicles every summer for check-ups.

It’s important to bring your vehicle in to get checked out by a certified auto technician before your big trip, because the amount of mileage that you will be putting on the vehicle with the added stress of the summer heat can really put a lot of pressure on the engine and other crucial components of the car. In other words, it’s that same old broken record saying (that is nonetheless true). If you neglect your regular maintenance, you could end up shelling out way more for a more extensive car repair down the road.

The Long Road Home That’s why your local auto shop, Fort Collins Foreign Car Service, provides check-ups to make sure that everything is running well with your vehicle. Our auto technicians will go over your car with a fine-toothed comb and make sure that there aren’t any issues that could turn into bigger problems down the road and possibly necessitate a more expensive repair job. This is called preventative maintenance and it is just as important (if not more important) than making sure that you get the repairs you do need done on time.

As your local auto shop, we pride ourselves on being able to spot the smallest problems and avoid them before they become a bigger issue. This is why our auto technicians are some of the best in town. So, make sure that you come and pay us a visit for a simple check-up and tune-up before your next big roadtrip.
