Quarantine Mechanics: What you can do for your vehicle during COVID-19 isolation

We are all feeling very anxious about the current climate with Coronavirus and the potential to be isolated in our homes for the foreseeable future. What we can all agree on is that we are in this together and as long as we prepare and plan, we can get through! Everyone is making preparedness resolutions and one that you can’t ignore is your vehicle. While you may not be driving nearly as much as you did previously, you need your vehicle to be as reliable as ever and ready when you need it. At Big Apple Automotive in Victorville, California, our ASE certified technicians put together a few reasons to make time for your vehicle’s maintenance:

1. More Time

You actually have the time! Since all of our schedules have screeched to a halt, the excuse of “not having time to take your car in” is no longer an issue. This is the perfect time to schedule the routine check-up and preventative maintenance you’ve been putting off for months.

2. Cars Shouldn’t Sit For Long Periods

Vehicles need routine, too. You think you’re feeling sluggish confined to your living room? Imagine how your vehicle is doing when it is accustomed to consistent use and suddenly it’s confined to the car park. If your vehicle is stationary for an unprecedented amount of time, issues can develop throughout its complex systems if they are not exercised. During a routine service, our technicians perform system checks to identify potential leaks and stresses so you won’t encounter any surprises when you’re ready to hit the road again.

3. Continued Care Will Pay Off

There is a light at the end of the tunnel! We will not be in this situation forever. This too shall pass and when it does, you want to be able to hop in your vehicle and get back out to see your people and your world as soon as the coast is clear. If you take care of your vehicle now, you can be ready to resume life and its adventures.

While we can’t ease every anxiety you may be feeling during this time, Big Apple Automotive is here to take the burden of vehicle maintenance away and give you peace of mind for your vehicle’s current state.
